Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

We are debating on doing a 6" flare or not (removable). I have been told that without it it will effect the pattern below 300-500hz. I don't know if that would effect for the MLP or only for other seats though.

Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

Just add the ring/flare around the horn and see how you like it. As long as it is just added with some clamps or other for temporarily assessing should be no worries.

Our problem is getting the angles cut for this flare... I was told most do a 135 degree angle, and the max we can cut with the table saw is a 45 degree angle. My friend is also worried about getting the angles right in the corners. I wonder if i can find a router bit that will give me the angle needed...

Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

Confused on what is needed, but wouldnt you just need a cut under 90 degrees to make the 135 degrees. I imagine your flare ends in an angled cut so that the out surface is flat.

So 180 degrees minus angle. 180-135=45. 45 /2 = 22.5. So you only need to make two cuts at 22.5 to have a 135 degree angle.

Its how I have done some angled cuts in the past. So I dont remember there being many router bits with angles past 45 degrees because of this.

Hope this makes sense

Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

Hopefully I will have it home next week to paint, and install. As soon as the 2x4s show up and the new amp is ready I will run REW and post the results.

Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

I have one speaker home now and painted. I still need to do some touch up painting on the speaker, and to tune it. Tuning will be a while as I have no amps right now.

Re: DIY 2 way Synergy speakers

I don't know why it posted multiples of each pic...I can't figure out how to edit it from Tapatalk either.
