Throat screen in addition to full metal grill WH 6

#1 Post by Windmill » Mon Nov 27, 2017 12:16 pm

If I combined these two options In the WH 6 would I experience any unwanted sound blockage? I built my WH 6’s with the throat screen a few years back and I would now like to now add a full metal grill the usual 8 mm variety. Thanks for the input.

Won't be a problem. I have the Pet screen and full grills with foam on my OT12s - there is not any loss of high end that I can tell......

4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005
1 - T24

Thanks Bruce. Uh. I see I posted this in the wrong topic - but while I’m here...i noticed this driver on sale at PE. https://www.parts-express.com/grs-pz101 ... a--292-440 I have seen it described on this forum as a knock-off of the Goldwood. I’m pretty sure the Goldwoods were used in the arrays of my older jack 10s. If I were to build another set of Jacks with arrays with the grs version would they play nice with my older arrays? I notice the db is different.

Somebody would have to test them to find out. I was sent some CTS/Motorola reissues made in the Philippines a few years ago, in hope that I'd recommended them. They didn't work as well as the Goldwood, despite being priced higher.
