Jay and Don have made some Wedgie flat packs. The front baffle is now 1" thick verses the older one that was 3/4" thick. The tweeter is also now recessed into the rear of the baffle instead on mounting on its surface. It is very nicely done now.
However slight changes easily change the response and the short side wing and crossover got a little adjustment to form a more ideal response. To show how little changes can have such an effect on the response I went back and took measurements with no short side wing, and with the old side wing, and compared them to the new side wing that I just designed.
Here is a picture of the Wedgie on the test stand for measurements and no short side wing.
And here is the response.
Here it is with the old side wing.
And the response.
And now the new side wing.
Now check out the new response.
That thing is +/- about 1db over a really wide range. I also left it a little strong in the 350Hz range as the first order filter that most guys use to roll off the bottom end tends to drop the output below 400Hz. So this area will likely be down a db or so depending on the filter.
Here is a shot of the long wing side. I think I will have the top of this wing angled down about 3 degrees so that it doesn't create a straight line. Rounding the back top corner off would be good too.
And the side view from the short wing side.
These open baffle designs really like the asymmetrical side wing shapes. They really like an asymmetrical short wing too. It really helped extend the bottom end a little too. Compare the response of the new one with the old one. The new one is using our new GR Neo 3 too.
Here is the new response again. Note the gain in the bottom end. This will allow the lower crossover point to the servo subs to be a little lower.
And the old version.
