    Hello, I'm new here, been browsing for a few months. I have three Audiomobile MASS 2212's (D4) sitting around, & would like to put a couple of them to use in a vented cabinet primarily for HT use 80/20. Here's the parameters I found on the net: Qts: 0.42 Qms: 5.80 Vas: 92L Qes: 0.45 Fs: 22Hz...

    I have in my living room Neumann KH 120A studio monitors but i also want more detail and fidellity. That's why I am about to start a 3-way speaker project with the HiVi RT2C-A ribbon tweeter (my X-Over Point would be 1.7-1.8 kHz) and have a question on the midrange. My choice is fallen in to a...

    I am a big proponent for receiver systems but understand the convenience of the new 'sonos' type setups as well. I created a device "blumoo" that connects to typical receiver systems and allows you to use your phone as the remote control for the system and allows you to stream your music to your...

  7. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm looking at my first diy sub build. I'm thinking about using an Fi SSD12. I'm a novice with WinISD but I think I've come up with a suitable design. I don't have much room. The sub can't be too big. It's going to be used in a home cinema system made up of Arcam electronics and PMC speakers...
  8. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm playing around with Sonosub.exe and winISD and have come up with some measurements. A few questions: First: The area after(lower) the tune frequency, should I put much thought into this ? I was under the impression that below the tune frequency, distortion rises quickly. So for example...
  9. DIY Speakers
    I have been suffering from old timer's disease all day, and I can't remember the name of a speaker design from the 1950-60's that was comprised of a driver (typically a 12" or larger) mounted in a cabinet at an angle facing forward and up. It had two pieces of wood that covered the front of the...

    My home theater layout, which uses an acoustically transparent screen, has a shallow cavity behind the screen. I'm trying to figure out how to design a sealed sub enclosure which would fit in there. Here's the layout of the room (Note: the sub shown in the bottom right corner of the floor...
  13. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Was just wondering if one 15" subwoofer with Two 15 PR's would work for home theater. Was looking at a TC 15" driver and two 15" PR's from CCS. Box can't be any deeper than 16" but length and height are almost unlimited. Going to drive it with a Behringer 3000 DSP
  14. Home Audio Acoustics
    Hi All, I'm currently deliberating on getting an acoustically transparent screen. Which layout do you think is best? Room size is 42 square metres, 7.5m x approx. 5m. It has a sloping ceiling - 2.4m at the lowest point to 3.2 at the highest. Both room openings are not able to be shut - one...
