Didnt look at it but there is plenty of room under the desk it is an inch shy for the height but could raise the desk or just set it next to the desk as well. I was hoping to not have to use a separate amp and again not looking for anything reference since it is all nearfield.

I have two fully assembled Anarchy Tapped subs listed in the classified forum.

Thanks,
Darrell

Just not able to understand the build... Cuts make sense but where does it list what angle to cut/bevel each section at?

The angles are all small enough that gaps at joints are small. Don't bother with bevels. Just let the glue fill them.

Pretty sure I said no angle cuts needed somewhere, I certainly didn't bevel anything.

If you're really worried about cutting the angles, you can measure them in sketchup.

Make sure you've opened the pdf that's linked in the first post. If you're just looking at the images in the first post, you are missing a few dimensions.

My horns made some pretty bad noises last night. We were watching Skyfall. It was a little on the loud side. I don't have access panels, and I REALLY don't want to cut into my finished cabinets to replace busted drivers. So the noises last night finally pushed me over the edge. This morning I ordered the missing pieces to get my measurement rig up and running again. So in a few weeks some measurements will be coming. At minimum I should be able to answer the question of what the SPA250 bass boost really does.

(Until now, I've just tweaked crossover, gain, and bass boost setting by hand while watching a handheld SPL meter. I sold a few key pieces of my previous measurement rig when I sold the rest of my previous system to the people that bought the house it was in.)

I opened the pdf... still don't see angles listed.

I see a couple lines (short lines) that are slightly askew... Are you suppose to measure their angle off a piece of paper?

I really don't know what angles you're looking for. It looks to me like everything can be located based on the dimensions in the pdf. Lilmike chose to use linear dimensions rather than angles to locate things, but converting between the two should just be simple trigonometry. If you can be specific about which board you're having trouble locating or what angle you want, I'm sure you'll get some help.

you dont need any angles

if you are taking about the angle of the horn path, there aren't any listed, just the dimensions, you can calc the angle if you want.

look at this pic, it has the spacing for all the inner members, just line them up and you have your angles. this pic is from the first page, the PDF has everything in it, and more dimensions

No need for any angle cuts.

Layout is simply point to point, locating each end of the panels.

Might take a look at the T-6 instructions, they're very similar designs, it's just that the T-6 is twice the size.

If planning to use a 10 in it, the PicoWrecker might be a better choice.

Sure, it is still a work in progress, but it's current.

What are you running for a high-pass? ...mine will make some distinctly 'hurting themselves' noises on loud LFE without one.

I had a miniDSP 2x4 sitting here unused, and that's worked great for limiting the low-low stuff the Anarchys can't digest.

I'm just using the 20Hz HPF that's built into my Dayton SPA 250.
• Subsonic filter 12 dB/octave high-pass filter centered at 20 Hz

Also worth noting: I don't actually have LFE in this setup. It's just a 2 channel setup, so the horns are only getting bass from the L, C, and R tracks.

Okay, gotcha... I'm running mine either as [LFE] or [LFE+Main] off my AVR, and they were beating themselves to death on movies with a sub track without intervention.

FWIW I have the miniDSP high-pass cutoff set at 28Hz with a 48dB/octave slope; that seemed about as low as I could reliably push them with the gain cranked up (each is sitting on a ~150W amp).

A steep slope all the way up at 28Hz huh? That makes for a pretty big difference from what I have now.

If they're still making bad noises after dialing them in a little better via measurements, minidsp is my next step.

After living with 4 of these built as DIYAudio Group flat-packs, I stumbled upon a NIB Tang Band W6-1139SG driver, so #5 is in the works.

Unfortunately, Erich at DIYAudio Group no longer has the flat packs. This will be a scratch-build. Just as well, I felt guilty putting those precise CNC cut panels with dado cuts together. Assembling IKEA furniture is more challenging. This one will be true DIY.

This will go to my older son to provide some bass for the Klipsch Heresy he now uses in a condo.

The cut wood for the TH sub is in the background. The wood piles in the foreground are for two pair of mini-Karlsonator single-drivers I'm making for my younger son and my niece.

How did you hook up the horns? Daisy chain from one horn to the other or two sets of speaker wire from the amp to the horns?

Also, is the gain all the up and the LPF?

I wired them in parallel, i.e. two sets of speaker wire.

Gain and crossover were set through iteration taking full range frequency response measurements. My gain setting on the amplifier ended up quite low, but that'll depend on the gain structure and sensitivity of the rest of your setup.

I've got my pair running of the 4th and 5th channel of a 5 channel amp. the remaining 3 are for LCR. Crossover is thru a paradigm x30, at 80Hz. I have no Hi pass filter currently. they do not see LFE signal, just the lowest part of the "full range" signal. No bad sounds yet!

I think we're the demons.

If there were I'd buy another pair as well. I could scratch build them but do like the precision and ease of the flat packs

My understanding is that Danley Sound Labs was granted a patent on the tapped horn, so I'm not sure I can do any more flat packs for these. If Tom Danley gives me the okay, I would get more cut.

I'd be interested in a pair of flatpacks as well. I bought a pair of Anarchy woofers earlier in the spring, intending to build a pair of THs, but have stalled out at the 'actually buy and cut wood' phase.

I built two, a flat pack and a scratch build. Pay attention to the design and it's not a difficult scratch build.
