Re: How far should full range drivers spacing be


1. yes, LRC= left, right, center
2. the center can be vertical as long as the height is less 20"
3. the reason im wilingl to pay this much for these driver is i've heard the babb audios in the past and they performed like no other speaker i've ever heard. dc gold improved on babb's design, so they are suposed to be even better.
4. i want 2 driver per encloser because i dont want to go thru all the trouble of building/buying these encloser for a single driver and not have high output capability i want. So i would rather have it and not need it, then need it and not have it

Have you ever heard a well designed Jordan Watts design? They are the best full range drivers on the market.

Far be it from me to criticize anyone who knows what they want, and go for it. Best of luck!

I hear and see a lot about them, but never heard them for myself.

Re: How far should full range drivers spacing be


http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...enclosure.html

here is my build using a pair of N7r's (one per channel) they sound great: you may want to consider the 6x9 speakers N69r because you can get the distance between the two centers closer (which will raise the frequency where comb filtering starts)... I actually plan to make a line array with 4 n69r's per channel someday

Re: How far should full range drivers spacing be


Yes i have read your tread numerous times. It inspired me to want to build my system. But inspiration was overcome by my laziness so I purchased some pre-built speakers instead of going the diy route. I had planned on doing diy subs, I purchased the subs 9 months ago and they are still sitting in there shipping boxes.

Re: How far should full range drivers spacing be


I am glad I could inspire you to do a DIY project, even though laziness won in the end

what kind of subs do you have? what kind of enclosure are you planning?

4-18" Mal-X's & 8-18" PR's I've been talking with a local cabinet shop about getting the enclosures built. 14 cubic ft with PR's max out with weight should give me a 13-14hz tune. It will be 4 enclosures total 1 sub and 2 PR's each.
