DIYSG 1099 build

FINALLY!!! after hearing these things at @chadsmith013 house I had to have them. I'm upgrading from Fusion10s, so this should be a world of difference. The cabinet is the same as the knock down sold on DIYSG. This build only took one sheet of MDF. I had enough driver cutouts from HS24 builds to make all the top, bottom and mid-range divider pieces for all three cabinets. Instead of drilling a hole for the midbass driver wires and caulking, I decided to use binding posts. I had enough of them lying around and some 3/16" Lexan for the mounting plates. The cabinets ended costing about $150.

Nothing fancy on the finish since these will be behind the screen. Two of them are rattle can bed liner with matte black lacquer. Those two came out fine. The third is liquid bed liner rolled on. That one came out like crap. I used Dupicolor and it was drying in seconds. Eventually I'll sand them all down and roll some DuraTex on them. This was an experiment. I've been wanting to try bed liner for a while. If you like a very fine texture the rattle can bed liner works great.

Those turned out looking good, but above all will sound Great.


In some ways I am happy that more ppl can enjoy the 1099's but deep down I feel a little more invested in my build of the 1099's since the crossover boards had to be made from scratch. I was given a piece of paper with a bunch of wiggly lines and weird numbers and symbols on and was told, this is the crossover. UH what. My first DIY project and I have to learn electric engineering? Six hours later and numerous PM's to Tux and here it is. Not pretty but approved by Tux. Took up just about the whole bottom of the mid section too. LOL.


Glad that Erich brought out the premade cross over boards and that in turn helped other build these marvelous speakers.
Enjoy them tarponater.

Next time you build a crossover, you can easily make your own custom board. Just draw the board layout on the computer and include any custom images or writing. Then print it out. Next, impregnate the print in some epoxy. Drill small holes where the leads are and solder everything on the back side. It makes a very nice custom touch to the build. This is a good technique if you plan on mounting the crossover outside the cabinet.

Beautiful job on the 1099's. How do they sound? Are you pleased with the results? Also can you show a picture of the technique you described (printing out the crossover design and epoxy)? I'd like to see that.

Thanks,

Dave

I'm very happy with the way they sound. One thing that I noticed instantly is how much "bigger" they sound compared to the Fusion 10. We did a head to head with some 1099s and HT12s a few months ago. The 12s had a little more bass, but these had more a presence in the room. I could hear a lot more subtle sounds from them. My go to test scene has been The Hulk, the fight scene with Abomination. It has a good mix of surround, ULF and mid bass. The 99s made Hulk and Abomination sound more like giant monsters, if that makes sense. The next movie I've been itching to watch is Venom. A lot of people say that movie was made for the VBSS because of his voice. As for the crossover pic, I'll see if I can dig it out from one of my computers. I know I have a pic somewhere.

That bed liner on the center channel finally got to me. I stripped it down and primed it. Fortunately since it dried so fast, it sanded off very easily with some 80 grit on a DA. The baffle was fine so I didn't have to remove the drivers, just tape everything up.

Last night we did a head to head with the DIYSG 1099s and Klipsch KLF30s. My wife and I listened at normal levels and my son and I pushed both of them as far as they would go while still sounding clear. The AVR is an Onkyo RZ730 and we streamed the music from a Fire Stick 4K.

The first thing Patriece said was the Klipsch had more bass. That's no surprise considering it's two 12" woofers against two 10" mid bass drivers. She also said "the big ones have more ch ch ch". That means they are brighter for everyone that doesn't speak Patriece. It sounded to me like she preferred the Klipsch, but so far in all our testings she has always chosen the brighter speakers.

The bass is the biggest difference between the two, but it wasn't night and day. The 99s lacked that lower end content but actually did better in the mid bass range. They are very punchy speakers. I used the L-pad circuit in the 99s so that probably did help a bit in toning them down compared to the Klipsch. At lower or normal levels the two were very similar. Once you turned them up they started to sound quite a bit different. The Klipsch mid range sounded almost like it was being played through a tube. I figured that was probably some kind of resonance from the thin plastic horn. A lot of guys put ribbon caulk on the back side of the horn to help with that. The 1099 wave guide is much thicker material than the Klipsch horns. Also having mid rang drivers as opposed to a mid range CD probably helped keep them clearer at higher levels. I was able to get about the same SPL from both of them. The 99s did remain cleaner though at those high levels.

Overall, I was surprised the 99s kept up as well as they did with the (20 year old) Klipsch. The clarity of the 99s at all levels is impressive. Lacking low end bass these days really isn't an issue since we all use subs to get that done. This allows designers to focus more on clarity and it definitely shows. Both speakers sound great and you can't go wrong with either. The 99s are now my LCR and the Klipsch have been sold. The guy picked them up just after we finished testing.

I am wondering if you plan on toeing them in a bit? Your picture looks like a straight forward mount. When I had my 1099's the toe in helped the mlp position I found out. I also thought the 1099's were just laughing at me a low volume, clear but just waiting for me to turn them up.


Funny story: I have the 1299's now and had a friend and his wife over last Saturday. He is really hard of hearing and forgot to bring his hearing aids. He asked if I could turn the volume up, this was before we had even started to watch a movie. We watched "Lone Survivor". I started at my normal volume of 26 , he said it was to low , turned up to 22, perfect. Now this is pretty loud but I had spent a lot of time to dampen the room and it still didn't sound loud. Read my meter on my iphone and yep at 105dbs. Reference. My friend told me after the movie that he had no problem with voices and loved the four PA460's behind the chairs. Added a realistic feel to the movie.
I miss my 1099's but the 1299's are really growing on me.

No toe-in, they are hanging on the wall behind an AT screen. I suppose I could make an angled cleat. That might be a project after work one day. It is surprising how clear they are at high levels.

That and they are much closer to your boundaries (floor and wall).

That black board you see running along the wall at the top of the speakers is cut at 45deg. There's also a piece of mdf cut at 90deg screwed to the back of the cabinet at the top. I think it's called a cleat. If you can't make the cuts, Home Depot sells them in the picture hanging section. About 20" wide or so, aluminum.

Another liquid bed liner update. A though the rattle can bed liner looked great, the fumes never went away I gave it two weeks and they still were stinking up the room. If anyone else was considering this route, I wouldn't recommend it. I ended up taking them completely apart and stripping them down to bare MDF. n the plus side, I decided to try some roll on gray primer from Home Depot and they look amazing. This is just two coats of primer, nothing else.
