Not wanting to hijack another thread, you said:
"That's part of it, but not all of it. Today's towers tend to use a pair or more of smaller woofers rather than one larger one, and with the advances made in driver technology over the last 40 odd years a few small woofers can deliver just as much output as one larger one. One advantage to using multiple smaller woofers is that it allows the cabinet to be made narrower, which reduces diffraction effects in the midrange."
I have a pair of Electrovoice Interface D's. They're at my house in Tennessee and I'm currently staying in Florida. I have an extra pair of VMR's and ST-350's so I made this baffle.
Here's my question:
I made the baffle pretty close to the front face of the EV's.
Would it make a difference in sound if I were to cut the width of the baffles to the minimum width required to simply hold the drivers or should I just leave it alone?
Second question: On the EV's, the VMR is on top and tweeter on bottom. Any reason to invert the board? (I put it this way to keep the weight low)
Thanks for any thoughts.
