I do have some NLW9300 15's on me now so I could slowly build an angled baffle and test that. Erich you and others will probably have a better testing setup that I.
I forgot all about the surrounds. How are those coming along? Are there any finalization's yet?
I think you should also do a video of you listening to your speakers for the very first time. The sheer enjoyment/shock would be worth watching.
Sweet! It will be cool to see this thread spark off some other new projects and take the SEOS based designs to a whole new level. I'm willing to guinea pig my stuff for testing as well, so keep that in mind. If there are other things folks want to do, with some of the same components, I'm happy to build cabinets to accommodate and test with. I could post the measurements, pics, etc and just let the help and advice come in from there.
The surround design is done!!! The xovers are upwards of a hundred bucks each, but it seems to be more than worth it. As the designer of both the Fusion Sentinel and this TD based surround, Matt believes that this new unit with upgraded xover is significantly better in many ways. The total cost isn't bad at all either....$250 woofer(with group buy we had) $75 DNA360, $25 seos12 and $100 xover. So $450 a piece plus materials or flat pack. With a sheet of BB and build your own, it's just over $500. I kinda put all me efforts into the seosr lately as far as cabinet building and so forth, so now that the surround design is done I'll get some of those cabinets built and give em' a listen.
Love the video idea! I think all you'll see is
:D:D:D I haven't even heard them yet and I can't wait to see the faces of everyone when we finally do a GTG and they make their public debut:D

Nor do I know all the audio lingo. Fact is, for what we've created, the info on the site is extremely lame......thanks to me.
Could you start writing up the benefits of the SEOS? Technical stuff, why it works, how it works, what it does better, why the speaker designs are made the way they are, etc. You give a lot of great information on the forum, and I wanted to start taking notes over the past 6 months or so. But with all the projects I'm working with, it just hasn't worked out.
I don't really know where you would start. Most of your informative posts over the past few months have given some pretty good details. It would be great to consolidate that into one place.
Erich, that's an awesome idea! These guys certainly do know their stuff! I think LTD has posted something useful in about every thread in the diy section.
You should also talk to Matt regarding the new TD15/dna360 seos12 design with the updated xover. Seems like the xover upgrade might make it a good SEOS Reference contender on the lower end of the price spectrum. It might creep a little bit higher in cost due to the slight increase on the TD woofers.
