Re: SLOB project

Is the servo limited to pistonic notion though. Once the cone starts to breakup all bets are off. I assume this is about the Rythmik Audio drivers? I know from Backes&Mueller active speakers and my Velodyne sub that the piston mounted cotrol works really flawlessly. But in my understanding Rythmika...

Once they are in digital form it's only a matter of where you put the keys.

Re: spooky

I was under the impression that reverse directories are illegal in this country. Normally, reverse directories are used by emergency services and police, to be able to find people from their phone number in an emergency situation. They are for internal use only and not for the general public to acc...

Re: SLOB project

Much like my plan but the bass using the supravox should avoid having to padd the 10 inch down.

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

For a reference work Self or Cordel would be my suggestion. Probably and instead of or in the last sentence.

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

I think that and the amp is basically a class b amp so idle current is very low. Try running it into a load with a sine wave at 2/3 full power for half a hour to check the hs size.

Re: SLOB project

One last question I couldn't solve so far: Why does nobody (at least I couldn't find anything) use servo controlled woofers in OB designs
I think like rats, we have a advanced form of Neophobia

Re: SLOB project

I don't think the starting point for an OB is the bass. Not sure myself about that. Certainly what I find mine does better than box speakers is the bass. Not the extension, but the tonal quality of the bass and its temporal relation to the rest of the music is certainly what I think it does better....

Re: DIY Transistor Amp Using NVA Boards

If the caps are metal cased, make sure they are isolated from the chassis as the -ve terminal will be connected to the can of the transformer (this has caught me out before).

Re: SLOB project

Yep. My next step with them is to make some simple baffles and see what the new driver is like other than sat on the floor. But I have lots to catch up on and will be away next week till the next Monday, so nothing till then at the least from me. As it is I have to catch up on the backlog of power s...

Re: SLOB project

The wings in the Quasar are for th ebenifit of the bass mainly, I thought you were using an entirely different approach to bass? May plan is to start with a flat panel, then add the fast 10, and see what works for that, then repeat with the bass helper, so messing with the side panels is the main th...

I've just had a memory surface....wasn't Peter Comeau interested in Ncores back in the day? I seem to remember there was talk of taking WAD in that direction.
Buy what happened was Peter Comeau was the one that went in the direction (east).

Yep, exactly, I want a 2a3 friendly OB. Not got the Lii drivers out the box yet, may do this weekend, but as I say, I have no spare time ATM.
Interesting. So passive (series) crossovers too?
Thats the idea.
