Figured I'd better chime in early so I can add plans, Hornresp screenies, recommended drivers and all that.
As I'm way past armpit deep in my home rebuild, I really don't have the time to maintain a build thread on this one. Like several other projects I have currently - there are drivers, plans and sheet stock on hand, but I have not had the time I need to make one to measure yet. Several beta builds were very positive, so I decided to share the plans.
McFinkle offered to do a build thread, which is awesome. My free time is so scarce right now (If I had lights over at my place, I'd still be working, I have a to-do list a mile long), I can't spend the time on the forums like I used to.
Back to the PicoWrecker....
Designed to be a bit of a step up from my T-6, in that it should achieve the 120 dB/1M measurement and a low corner in the 20s (the fundamentals that I consider to be the hallmark of a "wrecker").
It is a bit larger than the T-6, and it no longer cuts out of a single sheet. I recommend good 3/4" ply, and I recommend bracing, as per the plans.
Alpine Type S 10 (dual 2) (dual 4)
Sundown Ev2 10 (either impedance)
1W into a Sundown, 1m groundplane:
600 watts into the same:
Excursion at 600 watts:
With a 4th order, 20 Hz highpass
And - the Alpine at a watt:
With the Sundown or Alpine drivers, I wouldn't hesitate to feed a 4-ohm cabinet all my iNuke 3000 can deliver in stereo once I had a highpass in place.
I've got to stress the fact that this design is still a BETA. I have yet to see accurate SPL and impedance measurements for any of the builds, but the feedback I have received is good. Things may change when I do. I'll do my best to keep the current plan package attached to this post. I haven't got assembly instructions or anything like that done yet.
Plans, cutsheets, and such will be attached when I have the time to put it into a presentable package. Other than the throat, which is a bit complicated, this is a relatively easy build. The external dimensions are 45" tall, 22.5" wide and 13.25" deep.
Here is a download link to the current plan set.
Edit 8-25: Added driver links for clarity
Edit 9-4: Added link to current plan set, tried to attach them to this post directly, but they're too big (seriously???).
Edit 4-1: Fixed cutlist in 6d
