I've found that most 4ohm subs end up looking that way once the box has its way and you ignore above 80hz or at most 100hz. I think this is why so many people get away with running 2ohm on amps that...

Very cool cuzed. At least let us pay shipping for them? I'm excited to get a pair. I was looking at my speakers today wondering where to install them. My baffle doesn't have much space and I'd hate...

The mids are gone. This day came much faster than expected. Unfortunately there will no longer be the 1099.

Ya it looks like a good unit, especially for a budget speaker. And the components in the XO are good too. You should see the Paradigm speaker I have open in my shop right now, the XO is 1...

For sure. It's there to limit output during big peaks. In other words, cause compression. Short it out.

The magnet looks quite small so I'm guessing a high Q driver. Thus open baffle wouldn't...

Hey thanks PI. I'm still a wannabe when I read your threads, but the best part of this build is how much I learned. Both in terms of speaker design but especially construction.

I'm happy that's finally sorted out. I think some of your colleagues were starting to starve. I don't think the teachers realized how long this would go on.

For me, a true full space 88db is probably good enough. So I'm with you EV. But more is nice and it really does add a layer of power to it you just don't normally get. When the volume knob can blow...

I have a bit of an advantage because I know these drivers. But first I gotta say: wow that's an expensive tweeter filter. Ditch that 200uF and 6.8mH from that filter ASAP. I doubt they're even doing...

You must be using to large of a cap in the woofer circuit. That's an 8ohm woofer. Unless you're using two in parallel.

In addition to Erich's note, I'm sure you could track down a pair of mids and Erich could fill in the rest of the parts to make one last speaker.
