Parts Express B&C product giveaway

So I won the following from the Parts Express giveaway:

Any suggestions on speaker designs?

I haven't heard of any kits that work with this driver combo. I don't know much about design either.

Do you think that you can use the vented recommendation tuned to 53hz in a two way with the horn and a good L-pad?

Maybe you can play around in Xsim for a while and see where it gets you. I don't know what order of crossover you would need.

The bad news is that you will need to be able to build the boxes and then measure them to start a crossover design. Just an L-pad on the horn is not going to work well.

Do you have a UMIK-1 or other microphone? Any experience doing crossovers before? You could do an active system which is slightly easier than a passive crossover but you still need to be able to measure the driver responses in box, plus you will need 4 channels of amplification.

Sweet win!

The only crossover experience that I are with active ones, ie miniDSP. I do have a UMIK-1. I am trying to see if I can use a miniDSP balanced 2 X 4. I have built boxes before but only for subwoofers. I have never built one for a full range speaker before. The problem with an active setup is, like you said, I will need 4 channels of amplification.

I might try to find a passive crossover that will work, in that case I will only need a 2 channel amp.

I am currently trying to find some kind of software to help me design the box.

I think B&C has generic crossovers that might work ok. Look for the 1200hz xo. They’re a little bit expensive though.

Unhappy

Finally closed on my house and had the speakers shipped. They are finally here. I don't know if I will have time to build these though....
