I'm new to this forum and have been reading about the Wedgie speakers when I found this thread. The Wedgie looks like a great project but this one with the Neo10's seems even more interesting to me. Is this something that will be documented, or made into a kit, so others can pursue it? I've also tried to find where the Wedgie flat packs might be available but haven't found it yet.
Thanks so much,
The wedgies will be available soon.... I know, they are way over due
. We've been migrating to a new shop(s) and it's taking longer than expected, I apologize to you guys who have been waiting patiently, we're working on it
I looked and didn't see it, and also don't know if it's something one can figure out on their own. What's the sensitivity of something like this upcoming kit? The wedgie is between 93 and 94. Would this be higher or lower?
Ben, not 100% sure but I'd guess they will be a little shy of the 93/94 mark... not sure a single Neo 10 will make it up that high
You could put a Neo3 and Neo10 together like shown, but will it sound the same or as good? Probably not. You most likely would need to get the waveguide right to get it to sound it's best. Danny will also put together a crossover that maximizes the performance. Most likely the kit will include a flat pack or front baffle of the top speaker since the waveguide is a critical piece.
Yeah, and there is a lot of R&d that goes into each of these, they are almost all different. the Neo is sensitive to everything, baffle width, wave guide depth, wave guide flare (s), wing shape etc etc.... then you combine it all and it gets tricky. they all have to be modeled, programmed and prototyped, it's time consuming. Hoping the next one will be the cat's meow" at least for this speaker.
Also note, there will be an active version of these available from HAL (Hollis Audio Lavs)
