My new year’s resolution: Dual Dayton DVC385 ported build / DIY HT speaker / room acoustics... - Page 3

Awesome stuff.
Is 11Hz HPF detectable on measurements?
I do not think I've seen the mains and the horns before. Did you have build threads for these?

You should be able to see the effect of the highpass if I did some measurements with and without it enabled but I have not done that yet.

The mains and small folded horns do not have builds threads. The woofers used in the mains sold out right after I built them and have gone through 3-4 crossover iterations over the past two years. However you can expect a build thread for the new <$100 version I am planning.

The little folded horn subs I built before I had a mic to measure their performance with and as such I did not want to share a possible bad design. They seem to do OK though, I still have yet to get some outdoor FR/sensitivity measurements on those. They use the 8" Dayton SD215-88 which PE had for $15 back when they were switching to the un-shielded version. They extend to about 35hz in room which is pretty good considering their size. Here are some pictures I have of those:

The idea of sub that can carried around like a briefcase seems very attractive to me

Just finished mine up. We are pretty much the same for size and tuning. As built I came in at 7.36cu.ft. and tune to about 17.5Hz. My FR is here, drops like a rock after 20 or so, I'm jealous!

I like the mains that you built. They look (form factor) a lot like a Klipsch KL-650-THX.

Thanks,

When I first grabbed a few of those Klipsch buyout woofers from PE the first thing I thought was I am going to build a clone, eventually it morphed into you see above. I really like the size of those enclosures too.
