Very nice! I may have to switch to black phase plugs after looking at yours.
post #724 of 1497
Yeah the black plugs are sexy.
post #725 of 1497
I'm totally going to build some of these...

Sooooo sexy! I cannot believe these are going in my HT!! I can't wait to get them all done with duratex, all blacked out. Can't wait to hear what you think Matt, once they get fired up with some xover work in. These things are going to be ridiculous. I have been saying for two weeks that I'm going to get the surround flat packs cut, but I mean it this weekend biggrin.gif

From what I gathered, the bms would be passive and then active for the TDs. Will there also be an all passive version? Chop, you're gonna have a great set up!

FYI, Bob Crites sells 1.4" and 2.0" CD brackets that mount between the horn and CD, making installation easier. http://www.critesspeakers.com/

Yes, you are correct. Once we have them set up, I will probably mess with active on the CDs too, just to see, but I have a feeling that they are going to be just fine with the passive to active combo. Not sure if someone will work up a full passive, it would eat up lots of power and be a pretty costly xover build I think, but you never know. Heck, it would be nice plug and paly though.

I can't thank Matt for all of his efforts to help me with this! He is helping me to make this all possible, where it wouldn't have been without him. He really gives selflessly to this forum and the members with the work he puts in

Great to see your project moving along Jake. Summer seems so slow in the diy audio world sometimes so its encouraging to see you guys making big beautiful boxes.
Still looking forward to playing with my SEOS 24's.
Matt i couldnt help but notice that big DIY Synergy you have next to Jakes project. Ive just started building Bill's 3 way from the soundgroup forum.
Can you comment on your design ?

Regards,

Daniel

Here is the build thread for that one (that one starts on post 40):
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1405783/the-very-low-budget-diy-synergy-horn-build

I am happy with the way they turned out and fulfilled my expectations. I imagine they are not quite up to par with the real Danley designed Synergies, but for what I have put into them they are not bad at all.

Right now it is dormant halfway between me switching it to active/passive crossover. I can't fit them anywhere for normal use so getting them running again is low priority and I have plenty of other speakers to use biggrin.gif

I am just looking at these and thinking about stands....I may end up making the stands out D/O Dayton 18 boxes for the front three:D I just have to rework them a bit and make sure I can't mount them solidly. It would put the middle of the waveguide right about perfect, around 50".

I was actually thinking the same thing about the forum being slow this morning. Those synergy projects are sweet, I'd love to get a listen.

So the surrounds are going to be 32.5" H x 16.5" W x 12.5"D including dbl baffle (1.25 with a 3/4 and 1/2 combo dbl baf). Before I go crazy trying to figure out cut dimensions and cut sheet layouts...isn't there a program that will do that if I put in the dimensions??
post #736 of 1497
Cut List will do your cut sheet layout if you know all your panel dimensions:

Sweeeet, thank you sir! I have them all, and did a layout of my own, but I knew it wasn't the most efficient way, so...It'll prob save me a sheet or two of 3/4

SO, back to the ever popular amp debate real quick...anyone see any reason to use something like the LG E series amps over the EP4k?? The price difference isn't that much for similar power. I know I have been down this road, but with the discovery of these e series units and their street prices, I just had to ask
post #739 of 1497
What type of price are you talking about? And what amount of wattage are you needing?

Street on the E8.2 is like $750 and it does 400x2....ultimately, I need between 12 and 15 channels, depending on if I run each set of 15s in each main together or individually. It will take 8 EP4ks to do it the way I want. I need around 400w per channel for each of six surrounds(maybe even a bit more). I need anywhere between 400-800 for the woofer section of each main(depending on how crazy I want to get), and about 250 per CD in each main. The CD power could change based on how much will get eaten up by the passives
post #741 of 1497
I am not sure what the LG would offer over the Behringer other than a name. I like the Crest power amps so I would have gotten a bunch of Crest Pro Lite 2.0's. I think they are $379. 540watts x2 4ohms. Crown has a few options also but I like Crest myself. Peavey's IPR lineup would be the same value also.

Look into the new Behringer NU4-6000 like I am. smile.gif

Thanks guys!!

Andrew, you guys will do great, hang in there!!

HTdoc, that made me laugh out loud! It was a reasonable thought given my typical track! I pictured you on google like, "what the frig is Chop doing now?!?!?!" looking for some audio mad scientist biggrin.gif she would be the worlds' smallest audio tech at 7lbs 13oz and only 19.5" tall

Congrats! Hope everyone is healthy and sleepy!
