Tiny desktop, single driver speaker ideas - Page 2

post #31 of 44
Crap I didnt even notice that... This Vifa is great, dont let the price full you

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=264-1062

I could work up something for that, or go on the more expensive side with this Seas

And yes plain old speaker wire is all that is needed.

Could you try and make something from the Vifa? Much gratitude.

If get a bunch of resistors. They're cheap and sitting on a desk you probably won't like full BSC.

Only issue is going to be even less bass, starts to roll off about 20-30hz higher in frequency.

(Dont mind the name at the top of the chart, its for the Vifa TC9). Same box as before


All you change for the TC9 is a 1 mh inductor instead of the 0.6 mh one from the circuit above

The gray line shows using a 5 ohm resistor, black is 10 ohm resistor, blue is no filter. The 5 ohm resistor would probably be best.

Yes, look at the Mark Audio CHR and CHP speakers on Madisound I pointed you to earlier. Similar price, extremely popular and well reviewed. Probably wouldn't need a filter and cold be put in a pretty small box from what I understand. They're extremely well built and sounding speakers.

Any driver not designed with a 6 db downward slope to the high frequency response, based on the enclosure's width will require a filter for flat response.

Now if these speakers are sitting on a desk, backed up against a wall, then you can get away without a filter.

I think I'll stick with the Vifa to see what kind of response I get versus my Logitechs that I got at a used electronics store.

I've got a pair here in a very small box I could measure if the OP was interested.

If I leave the volume the same, can I make it decorative? Like with some nice curves or whatever else?
post #42 of 44
Changing the 5" wide 8" high dimensions will alter the response curve. Other then that you can do whatever you want to the cabinet shape.

Could I do something like this:


with a 5" width and 8" height, but with a tilt in front so that it will point up on my desk? Or would it be better to make so mini stands to go with them, but with that same curve in the back? Thanks.

You'll be good with that. Cool looking design.
