Hello, AC folks! My name is Dan. I’m a long-time lurker, but haven’t contributed up until now. I’ve begun building my wedgie kit, so I figured I’d share my adventure, and ask a few questions along the way. I’m a true novice, so I fully intend to tap into the group’s knowledge base. I have a pair of dual 12” servo subs and amps waiting for a wedge base, so I’ll share that build here too
The glue up has gone well thus far. I cut out the short wing, and spent WAY too long sanding and getting the shape just right, but it came out pretty perfect.
Now a few questions, if I may.
1.) My current setup are Maggies (1,7i or mini Maggies w/dual DWMs, depending on my mood). I’m using a Crown 2502 amp. I think the Crown will be doing the Wedgies a disservice, so I’m considering an upgrade to some tube goodness. Do you think a Bottlehead Kaiju (8 watts) will be enough? Note that I’m upgrading the Maggie’s because I want more dynamics, but I also love the tube sound, and the BH kit sounds fun to build. Alternatively, I could do a pair of strapped Kaijus (16w each), but that is a bit pricey. I listen to a broad mix - classical, jazz, and rock. I do like it pretty loud, but not “rip-your-head-off” loud.
2.) Can someone with more experience please double check my crossover layout? See below.
3.) Does anyone have a drawing of a dual 12” sub wedge base? I found a few build threads, but I haven’t found a drawing with dimensions.
Thanks for reading!
