Hello!
« on: 1 Jul 2022, 10:13 am »
Hi, group. I am in Creve Coeur. (is there a Gene in this group? I have met a local enthusiast through another site.)

I have some jbl 580 horns for a LCR hooked to an Onkyo. And I have a couple of systems I am designing that use hypex plate amps.

 For the last few months, I have been working on a far-field speaker for the living room. It uses a 15" woofer, 8" mid, and 1" dome with no baffle.



It is still a WIP but it will soon go from foam to wood.

Using the Hypes plate amps should make it easier and provide good results.

Welcome to AudioCircle from Wright City.

Hey! You are just a little west of me!

I checked out your profile/system. Those lowthers look super cool. It looks like a full-range with no baffle.

Do you have a fav. speaker?

Thanks!

I dig them. The downside is they make me want to make many speakers since an XO becomes a file that I swap in and out instead of XO parts.

I looked at your pics too. The arrays look insane. Congrats on making something crazy!

I like the Lowther PM2A a lot but the PM6A that I have is a bit more forgiving in a no baffle scheme. Haven’t had them hooked up in years but I might dig them out for fun now that you brought it up. Crossover to a bass bin is around 300-325 Hz.

Welcome to GAS!  There's a lot of speaker experimenters around here.

Hypex plate amps (and Hypex modules in general) are nice, very nice indeed.

Welcome to the group Headshake.

I use JBL in my system but definitely not a DIY'er

Welcome!

I used to be a speaker DIYer, but I gave it up.  Quality commercial designs make me happy enough to forget about most speaker projects.

There's a lot of us crazies around here.  Summertime is slow for most audio things.  I think I've heard about you from Gene!
