Re: Nothing In Particular

I came across this link to an old American magazine over on DIY Audio that I thought might be of interest; there's an article about a DIY speaker based on the 'exciter' type principle and I'm sure Ant will like the arm/cartridge stuff... From the ads anyone would think television was a growth indust...

Re: SLOB project

Yes, I thought that. Shame the two Lii units have the disparity between their sensitivity specs.

I though these might be a good match for the Lii 10inchers

Re: SLOB project

Wolfgang, there's a lot of technical stuff (that I've only skimmed through) in the thread you linked to, along with, perhaps, an element of 'willy-waving', so like the initial poster, I don't have an understaning of the 'science' but I think Nelson Pass's last paragraph in post #16; In any case, the...

Re: SLOB project

I was wondering if some OB experts could shed more light on what the guy says in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LMe-ypUVu In my understanding the bass is the main benefit from OBs but then again it would need to come from bass drivers ("open source" OB?)that don't operate kind of "port...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

I got a 25mile ride in this afternoon. Played it safe and stuck to the same route as yesterday as I knew the road was dry and ice free - even ventured out on my 'best bike' sans mudguards. It's was just an out and back ride and I went a little further but chickened out when I got to a tiny place cal...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Pfffttttt.... I thought the AT-Cycling Team were made of tougher stuff! :) Everyday I'm mashing the pedals that grueling 1.6miles in each direction. 'cept for Monday nights mahoosive inner tube blow out, ooooopps, my fault, I'd over inflated the rear 27x 1 1/4 tyre/tube and it let go while parked u...

Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

Icy again this morning - too dangerous to head out yet.

Yesterday morning was the same, really scary black ice made me turn round after about a mile. I managed to get a ride in during the afternoon when it warmed up but I still stayed away from the shady, damp lanes.

Re: Lii Audio Speakers

Without accurate dimensions, it's a bit difficult assessing the box, but curved sides apart it appears to be akin to a classic bass reflex alignment (closest to, say, an Ultraflex or Onken). The curve to the rear will provide some of the desired length for the ducting... I've been asked if I would ...

Re: SLOB project

Thanks gents. The reason I've been thinking about it is based on my assumption that the Lii unit will crossover fairly low down (<200Hz?) so will be producing some upper bass itself.

Re: SLOB project

Following Nick's revelation that he's also bought some Lii FAST-10S drivers with plans to use them in a Quasar type OB project (coupled with his new Supravox 285s) It seems pertinent to raise a question that I've been mulling over for a few weeks. Should I extent the 'wings' of the SLOB design verti...
