Re: Crossovers - where to start?

I know what you mean, my belt sander weighs over 1kg and really is tedious to use that way.
These days I make one thin, ie 8 - 10 mm, mdf template and then use a router with a straight edge bit with ball bearing wheel to shape the rest.

Ohhhh you're going to need one of these then!

Best router bit for speakers builders - top and bottom bearings!

Moo Cow

Hey not bad...... The bass is back. I like the sound of the reverse tweeter.

The Morels are smother, still getting a bit of a shout now and then.

New to move them a room with some carpet.

I guess I could go back and slip in a 15w L-pad, while I wait for some extra parts.

Re: Crossovers - where to start?

Now I did use my router the other day.

Extra bonus points if you can tell me what is inside the bases?

Very nice!

Not much room for the honeycomb though!

Re: Crossovers - where to start?

Where to start...maybe with new glasses I put a 9R instead of .9 in the L-pad.

I'm on it!!!

Re: Crossovers - where to start?

Okay better - I even made sure the tweeter coil & woofer coil are the same (8.3ohm)
Tweeter 18g/Woofer 14g

The woofer is not going down without a fight - which I expected. I.e. it is competing with the Tweeter above 2200hz. (4,000 I can't hear the woofer at all)

I could order new tweeters...just so many out there. Maybe one closer to 89db - 90db.
