LGK alternate cabinet shapes?
« on: 23 Oct 2020, 01:55 pm »
Hey Danny,

do you have any other cabinet designs that would put a single pair of LGKs into a stereo arrangement (in 1 cabinet)? I'm looking to replace my Sonos Play 3's.




(ignore the center tweeter)

Something more shaped like that? (probably will be larger of course)

thanks!

Could always build a pair of LGKs laid flat with the base of one working as the divider for both models?

Like a Flat 5 with only 2 drivers???

I think it would be a little smaller than the Skinny 5, but the same basic shape. I guess it depends on how/where it would be set up?

A small one could be made with only one driver playing full range.

If I then had version made that was more of a lower frequency woofer and in a 16 ohm configuration that I could flank it on each side with that with them and they could cover the lower end.

Well I was planning to connect them to one of these:

So my initial thought was 2 speakers. I'm not sure how will bridging to channels into one would work? But whatever you think will work.


thanks

While you are investigating cabinets.. please create a lil stereo cabinet for 2 LGK drivers.... One LGK for left channel, one LGK for right in the same cabinet.
(I suspect it'll be wider that this ala the skinny series)

Yeh I considered something very similar to this before with build in chip amp. Would be the world's best portable speaker.
