I THINK Erich was planning on doing that (he had integrated baffles made) and THINk that the people he was getting them made, took the idea for their own product line and wouldn't sell them to Erich. Erich mentioned something like this on one of the bazillion posts in this thread.,

Did they copywrite them or something along those lines? Seems like it would be a huge hit that would further customize the look of these speakers...

"I'm trying to figure out why everyone thinks they need two 12s or 15s to properly reproduce mid bass in their home?"

among other things, it kind of depends how folks are defining mid bass, how load they wish to play, and the nature of the content being reproduced.

as you know, the spectral content of something like dance music can have 10db+ or more of bass than the spl at higher frequencies.

good, uncompressed, recordings might have another 15-20db of peak-to-average headroom requirements.

we tend to set the volume knob based more on the midrange average spl, so if that is around 90-95db (very loud), a 120db+ system isn't overkill.


--
as a separate item, there may also be something to the whole notion of sound 'intensity' as well. spl alone may be an incomplete description of the experience.

I have a lot of height to the room so making the box taller is not an issue.

I think the best reason to use multiple woofers is that it adds another source to mitigate room problems. Like a multi sub approach. The perk is heard room. But I'm not so sure how much it matters unless you're crossing at 50hz or something.

Blazer. That would work great. I did a similar thing in another design called the 1099 using 10" woofers. Flushing the waveguide into the baffle is purely cosmetic.

No worries here, man! I meant what I said. It worked out better than the 10k post belonging to a total n00b who stopped by just to ask "what's a SEOS?"

Still no names for the SEOS-15 with dual 8's under it?

I know someone said 'screamer' and 'chaos'. But those might make the speaker sound a bit 'untamed' and crazy.

I believe the name 'oculus' was mentioned, but that's actually going to be the name for an upcoming speaker.

Agreed. I like names like that. The name tells you something about the speaker.

Swift isn't too bad and easy to spell. I was thinking Core, Accord, and some others that I can't remember right now. rolleyes.gif

2x8S15 would probably be a bit too hard for people to remember.

If I knew there were going to be other similar speakers, I'd probably be able to use numbers. If they were the Core Series, then this one could be the 15-88 or something like that. But I'm not sure if any more similar designs will be done or not.

I like the 15-88 and 88 special. I also like the thought of the 18-1010, 24-1212 and 12-66. Not as unique as 88 special but at least I know exactly what were talking about.tongue.gif
