I just noticed Parts Express has the Aura-NS6-255-8A 6" driver on sale for pretty cheap.

I feel like i've seen some builds use that. Anyone have any designs to recommend that would make it worth picking up a few of these guys?

I REALLY want to take a stab at a nice, tall line array using those. Just not sure what HF to pair it with...

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

You could pair it with the Denovo mini-elliptical waveguide:

I built a boom box using them with bwaslo's crossover, powered by a DTA-100 and it sounds great.

that's cool zhillsguy.... i am considering trying to make an ipod dock/powered speaker as well. i really want to use a docking connector instead of the 1/8" jack for the ipod, but after some research i'm not sure i want to get involved in such an ambitious EE project just now.

It is not a design, but putting a SEOS-12 above 4 NS6's in a square pattern would be quite the speaker.

If you don't mind a very wide box, Bwaslo has a design with 4 NS6's in a horizontal row below a SEOS-12. It should be an extremely high performer.

If you can design your own or measure and use DSP, a SEOS-18 over a 3x3 matrix of NS6's crossed around 900hz would be pretty wild. You could even do a 4wide x 3deep matrix with shading on the outer woofers. That would be pretty wild.

In the "absolutely nuts" arena, a 5x3 array of NS6's below a JBL 2384 horn (from 4722) crossed around 600hz. It would likely need a little shading on the outer 6 woofers. It should control horizontal directivity down to about 300-400hz. That would be hard to beat in a 34"h x 30"w x 16"d enclosure, if that works for you. Behind a screenwall it would be killer. Fill the open spaces with sealed subwoofers. smile.gif

I've been keeping my eyes peeled for an affordable package capable of relatively high output for my Crossfit gym (currently using old HTiaB speakers that are blown out)...between the 9" driver and $15.50 waveguide & CD, this would be an amazing price point if a speaker design was made. Sadly, I don't have such abilities. tongue.gif Obviously I've been eyeing all of the designs on Erich's page such as the OS, but if someone were to release something using the Aura, I'd be very interested.
