These are my third and final attempt at a small two-way tower using a silver flute 5.5 that I’ve had for years. The northwoods name came from the first cabinet that was pine and looked like it belonged in a cabin.
The first two attempts sounded like crap. They were both pre measurement equipment so were sims only based on mfg data. I had simmed this third attempt before measuring and correcting. I’ve always had great success with sims being very accurate, except this build. It was very off, including the z offset estimate I made. I was off by a full 10mm. This all explains why the previous versions, well, sucked.
The build uses the 8 ohm silverflute 5.5 and a silkie. I know there isn’t much love for the silkie but I personally like it. The previous attempts used a D27TG45-06, a much better tweeter, but those got returned to the build they were robbed from.
Ill post the squiggles later (they are pretty lumpy), but they use an LR4 at 3600. This is higher than ideal but works. Electrical is 2nd/3rd order.
