What did you use for your roll-on paint?

I took a close mic measurement of one of the SEOS woofers (delta pro 12a). I used a Audyssey mic and was placed in front of the metal grill so it was probably 3" away from the driver. I'm not real familiar with REW and measurements but I got this... Looks pretty good, I was expecting it to roll off sooner.

 

Audyssey Disabled and speaker set to full range (large).

What would be the reason for putting the woofer above the tweeter in his surrounds?
Does this offer some benefit to using a more traditional tweeter over woofer type
design? I have seen others do this as well, and I just never understood what the logic
behind this type of design would be??

^Most likely to get the dome tweeter further away from the ceiling and minimize reflection intensity. They function practically indentical we just are used to seeing tweeter over woofers in efforts to keep the tweeters at ear level and away from floor reflections.

Don't waste time reading signatures.....

I was actually thinking about the woofer. putting it as close to the boundary as possible may help with allison and ceiling bounce effect. it would also boost the low end a little more which maybe a good thing in this case . these were designed as bass-reflex originally.

The first link is broken! aghghghg!

Like your choices and like the paint you used. Those surrounds look pretty good, I might end up building those. You should play some music through your surrounds and see what they sound like. I'd imagine they would sound really boomy in the corner like that, but maybe Audessey can compensate a little?

I was going to put the tweeter on the bottom but was afraid it might cause some problems with the curtain because the tweeter would be right on it. This is the location of the right surround when I had my old speaker up.

I didn't save the data but it should have been 75db or real close to it.

Doesn't look like its on the site anymore.

Its that one but in quart size. I never tried listening to music through the surrounds. If they were boomy I'm sure Audyssey would have tried to eq it down. I still want to measure the surrounds and see what their freq response is.

Mr. K,

Never heard you final impressions on these...? How are they for music? Any upgrades in the near future?

The other day I was listening to music at around 105-110db and it sounded so nice. They can go loud and at the same time sound clean. It seems like they sound better the louder you go but I don't want to push them too hard using my receiver. I don't think I'll change the Tempests, I like them as they are. Maybeeeeeeeee in the far future I'll redesign my subs to ported, horn, or dual sealed.
