(My) First TRT

#1 Post by N.Webber »

Long time no post... :oops:

It will go in the back of a Citroen Berlingo, flat on the floor with the driver facing down (on spacers)

Just starting out...

Looking good so far. Be sure to use PL or other polyurethane adhesive to assemble it.

Mike hasn't been around long enough to have seen Mr. Webber's builds.....maybe we need some pics to update the newer members of his prowess? :clap:

Whoops. Er, my apologies. I see the DR-something in his profile pic...that shoud've tipped me off. :bash: To make full resolution for my mistake, I shall apply a 4-inch long bead of PL to one of my hairy forearms and let it dry. Over the next 3 months as it slowly chips away, I will be reminded of my folly.

Hey mike, please don't do that. This would be a total waste of good PL.
Simple Superglue will be fine... :wink:

See if you can find mr Webber's WH10 build thread, Mike :cowboy:

Looking forward to see what you come up with on this one, Nimrod. Your work is always a source of inspiration (and a bit of frustration as well: my work looks like :chainsaw: in comparison ).

NOW I remember. He routed his initials in his WH10's or something like that, right? I think I posted in that thread too. :oops:

I dont have the plans to the truck tuba so this is the first time i see this thing. Looks good Nimrod!

But i wonder, Bill has been critisising the "scoop" / rearloaded horn in another thread lately. Calling it a flawed design because of the phase difference between the direct radiating driver and the horn.

I am no expert but this looks like a rearloaded horn to me though. I hope Bill could chime in on this.
Life is just a game, don't take it to seriously!

Maybe, Nim's is the shot for the TAT on the sales page with NiM routed on it.
Just in case:

Looking forward to seeing this build as well...
Built:
DR 250: x 2 melded array, 2x CD horn, March 2012 plans.
T39's: 4 x 20" BP102 , 2 x 28" 3012lf.
WH8: x 6 with melded array wired series/parallel.
Bunter's Audio and Lighting "like"s would be most appreciated...

Shit I hate that, when it happens. You put the tube down and no matter what...I always get some on my arms, pants, shirt and even my pencil. And I wear gloves. :roll: :lol:

It is. The cancellation notch is moot, because it occurs well above the subwoofer pass band. The same is true of tapped horns, which also are rear loaders.

Excellent work as usual, looks like a pretty straight forward build too. I think I'll have to make one of these. :cowboy:

Similar idea to the TT, then?
