Just poking fun at u. I am the type who doesn't like puzzles with electronics. When I hooked up my first diy sub and it didn't work I blew a gasket. Just the way I'm wired. I like things to work.

Getting so excited to hook up speaker and if 1099 doesn't work i would stress out.

This is why I love woodwork and sketchup. Do it right and it works. Make a mistake and it's obvious. With electronics and automotive repair it's a process of elimination. Some like that stuff, others hate it.

Tux will make my first xo for me. Then I will take good pics and with Roberts diagram I can do the second and third.

Then I will be confident.

Matt did my boards and they look beautiful. I'm glad I placed that portion of the build in more skilled hands. I could see a lot of areas to screw up. Your plan is sound IMO Donny.

You should have posted a pic. Matt is an artist.

Is the included gasket tape for the waveguide, mids, or both?

That's a big 10-4 on that, gpmbc.
Matt (@mtg90) is a pleasure to work with and handled my 1099 XOs as well.
If anyone would like to see at least one XO set-up done about as well as it can be, swing the parts over to Matt and then work off the completed one as a model for others.
Like yourself, I decided to break the XO into two separate boards....ease and flexibility of installation as well as "shippability".

Enjoy your 1099s, fellas!

The mids don't come with gaskets from the manufacturer so I started putting some gasket tape in for the mids. I'm not sure if it's too thick or not, but I don't know where to get any thinner material.

Lots of people, including Bill Waslo, think the AE TD15m is one of the best mid drivers http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/multi...id-driver.html

Not exactly in the same price range at $329.00 per woofer though

The 15" Deltalite comes very close. Really low distortion.

I think the woofer used in the Cheap Thrills had a smoother FR than the A&E, but not lower distortion.

Sorry, they're already in the cabs and getting them out to see the bottom would be quite the task. Not sure on dimensions, maybe Blah450 happened to measure his.

Even though the deltalite has 5x the Le and a 10% weaker motor?

All woofers praised for their top end cleanliness, not something required for a 1599. Better to focus on T/S parameters that achieve bass output as a pair of 8s will happily get down to 200hz with insane volume. The bandwidth of the mids would be about 200 to 900hz. That's really quite narrow and in the sweet spot for 8s.

Any measurements of the Cinema 88? I just can't help but think there's a midrange hole like Matt and I got on our similar setups. I mentioned it to Matt here: TD15M - SEOS12 - BMS4550 / theater progress / Dual TD6M - SEOS12 - BMS4550 build. :D

If it does have that hole, then I'd cross in the woofers just below the hole. It really would be the best way to get a 1599. Doing one passively would be a lot of work. But this idea would also require dsp and amps. But if you're building a 1599, that really shouldn't be an issue.

I didn't say I'd use the 15" Deltalite for the bottom of a 3 way, just saying it's a good woofer.

Oh. That's true. I was thinking in terms of doing a 1599. For that I'd use something with lots of bass potential.

I meant as basically WTW with no separate mids. Like the Noesis 215. What problems do dual vertical 15" drivers have in the midrange, if crossed over at like 800-1000 hz like the SEOS 15 can?

Vertical lobing would be high. Best to do a 2.5 way. Big MTMs are hard to do.

I thought the vertical alignment MTM corrected the vertical lobing?

So the only problem with the MTM is the interaction between the woofers that causes different lobing patterns than the tweeter which causes things off-axis to sound different in the mid-frequencies. So if you cross the waveguide low enough, like the SEOS 15 can, along with the woofers as close together as possible, then it's not a big deal because the lobing doesn't happen until a higher frequency than the crossover?

Lots of bass potential would be the only reason, for me, to do a 1599 vs the 1099, Im sure the 1099 has plenty of top end output for me!
Dont think Im ready to spend that kinda change on the TD15m's though

Just get the 1099 and then buy some good 18" subs

There are 12" woofers that can put out as much low end bass as many 15" woofers. And they can put out more bass than anyone would ever use in their home, even if you really like midbass.

Not quite. You'd have to cross very low. Maybe the BA750 could do it, but doubtful. Maybe 2x12 with SEOS 15 and BA750. 2x12 is plenty anyways.

Using woofers to comb the response is not an easy way to get directivity. Its sounds like a simple thing but it hardly is.

but 12's aren't as cool as 15's

Do you know the equation for calculating the frequency nulls based on woofer spacing, degree off axis and distance from speaker?
