Your talk about driver selection was quite informative, especially about how expensive components in a poor design can drive the price up without complimenting performance. I was pleasantly surprised that you mentioned Peerless Audio India as a preferred supplier. I wrote to them several years go asking quotes for drivers etc. But as I recently rekindled my desire to build a DIY stereo speakers, I was glad that market is now inundated with imported choices. I looked at Peerless as some cheap manufacturer for local markets. Maybe their website put me off and I didn't know any better. Your endorsement of their engineering, quality control and professionalism impressed me and I sense your endorsement doesn't come easy.
1) I am looking for a woofer and lower mid range drivers for open baffle use. Can you recommend any of Peerless drivers for the purpose? What are you recommendations from their line of products, for a newbie DIYer, in general?
2) I want to suggest a couple of topics/themes for your future Tuesday Tech Talks;
i) Most audio reviews seem very subjective. It would be interesting to see a very well reviewed speaker measures out in reality. Also,
commentary on what insights the measurements can provide into the design process. One candidate can be from your own GR Research stable
and another from any of the popular loud speaker brands.
ii) The electricals, viz., amplifier selection, wiring, wire gauge, connectors, power supply plug hole ratings, types of power supplies etc.
