I have no affiliation with them. We utilized a 4th order active crossover so it was clear that the problem was with the drivers. In the future, there will be pointers to photographs of the construction process and the finished speakers here. Cutting your own wood might be a little cheaper, but not by enough to really matter especially if you make mistakes. Mary Shelly Has Nothing on Us Why would I build a transmission-line sub? Lets go over the math, because thats where people get stumped the most.

If you have room for 2 identical enclosures go with that. Ported or other bandpass are probably just as sensitive to changes in speaker parameters.
My measurement tools were decidedly low tech but adequate. I loose 3dB by using isobaric. Does setting Nd to 2p adjust for this too? Just point to your favorite subwoofer details page and then I will add it to the index. People might think the efficiency is the drawback, but i have 1000watt rms at my stake for the subs alone! Several designs are in the following scan. This yields an empty t-line tuning of 62hz and a fully stuffed tuning of 31hz.
You are currently viewing our boards as a guest which gives you limited access to view most discussions and access our other features. The regulated power supplies produce the kind of control and authority that you typically will only find with much more expensive amps. For those of you with speaker enclosure modeling programs, there is a technique to fudge the modeling of a T-line. As with any sub, placement was crucial. The Driver The first step in building any subwoofer is selecting the driver, as this will determine how large an enclosure you need as well as what you need in terms of amplification. Just trying to make the best of what I had available to me. It's a simple technique for making a nice looking enclosure.
These are 15 yrs old but were in service for about 10 yrs. I found some sources for heavy cardboard and plywood cylinders but unfortunately the sizes were all wrong. With the drivers installed the cabinets weigh in at 88 pounds each. It only makes sense if you're super tight on space and will use it for a sub, where the 2X power handling is needed. I hate to knock my own design but I would have went a different route had I more space to work within. Amplitude works on a different scale that is equivalent to voltage.
Since these subs are 8 Ohms each, I get it back when the amp is presented with a 4 ohm with the subs wired in parallel. In this case, the driver will have to be located 59. X-Over is at 80Hz so the other speakers in the system are participating somewhat at 80Hz and above. In fact you don't need to!! First of all, a resonance frequency of 39 Hz is a bit too low for this driver it only has 5mm Xmax, and will run out of excursion fairly quickly in its passband in such a large box. Fortunately, the relatively small cross-sectional area, and traditional T-line construction techniques make this possible to achieve. The final cabinets stand 56 inches tall and certainly have an unorthodox appearance.
Anyone have experience with using this feature of Hornresp? How Much Does it Cost? There may be better tools out there, but Hornresp is simple to use once you learn how to use it! Also one side panel is screwed on but no proper seal as of yet. Fully stuffed, the amount of apparent volume increase is approximately 1. Verdinut, post: 1255600, member: 80194 My apologies for the misunderstanding. I placed a series of four reflector plates in my bends, two for each half of the line. I seem to be less tolerant of crummy bass than the average joe. The inside of the box was lined with 1.
So take anything below 32Hz with a grain of salt. There were some small changes in measured response but but I never noted anything that was audible. At this point we could stop here, but I want to refine this build a bit. The flattest and smoothest impedance curve is the goal, with a properly designed T-Line, the impedance has just the hint of a gentle broad bump at the speakers closed volume resonant frequency. } This is a tappered version for lower fresquency subs but it is still the same concept.
