DR250 build questions

#1 Post by Dea7hra77le » Sun Mar 25, 2018 1:09 pm

Hello everyone. It’s been quite a while since I posted on here but I’m back with some questions as I build a pair of DR 250’s melded to go with my 22” T48’s 3015lf loaded. I have two main questions so far. One is as I’m waiting for my speakers to arrived which I ordered through Speakerhardware.com (deltalite 2510’s) I am wondering if someone could tell me the baffle cutout size. My second question has to do with the pole mount. I am planning on pole mounting but didn’t get the adjustable pole mount though. So I’m wondering if others have used the standard fixated mount and if so did you account for the angled bottom so when you install the pole mount in the cabinet the pole mount sets plumb to the cabinet face? Looking forward to your responses and thanks in advance for your time to respond.

go to the Eminence website and bring up the specs on the speaker....the cutout size is listed.

6 - T39 4-25" 2-22" 3012LF
4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24
2 - XF210

I used the adjustable top hat and am always happy that I did. With the narrow vertical dispersion of the DR 250, it is really helpful to be able to "aim" the speaker with the adjustable top hat in some set ups. Since you are just at the baffle and spacer cut out phase of the build, you have time to receive the adjustable top hat. That being said, sure its possible to mount the fixed top hat so the speaker winds up plumb...but unadjustable.

+1, plenty of time to save up and wait for shipping, well worth it.
Built:
17" width 10" driver Autotuba
2 x 29" width dual Lab12 Tuba60
6 x DR250 2510/asd1001
In progress:
2 x DR250 2510/asd1001
For best results, point the loud end of the array towards the audience

Thanks for your responses. I went ahead and ordered the adjustable pole mount. I used the extra straight pole mount with the pair of SLA Pro’s I’m building so in the future if I see a need to add another pair and stack them I can.

As far as the baffle cut out I guess I was just was unsure whether the baffle cut out size listed on the eminence website would be correct with the way the driver is mounted. The other builds I’ve done I had the driver so I just measured the driver. I’m sure I’ll have a few more questions while I finish building.

Do this. Wait for the drivers to arrive. Why take a chance for Ms. Murphy to FUBAR your build?
