Had another thread asking/venting about measurement vs simulation. Happy to report that dropping ceramic sb 4" into the hole, which orig tried some buyout 4"/4.5 sb paper cone from PE that was driving me nuts with 3-4db drop at 1.5k that I was prob over obsessed with getting flatter measurements vs hearing, has worked out great. About ready to actually put the crossover inside the speaker, though want to test couple things to get better phase alignment. Mid-tweet XO at about 2200. Also, to refresh, satori 9.5 4ohm, sb 4" cac, sb29nd tweet - will attach pic.
But several months ago bought up someone's 'premium' Seas Loki kit. Assembled, was loving the coax effect and warmness. Later tried SB's 4" coax in poor man 'roy' type build with grs 8" sub - meh, need to readjust the stock crossover sb provides. So decided to give it a better try to make own primary speakers, although the 3 way SB mentioned above is excellent - no sub needed at all, make Seas prestige line "ROY" with 4.5" alum/silk coax and 7" titan driver. Just completed cabinet, about 0.8 cuft with 3L chamber for coax and dayton 8" alum PR on back. Can those come to PE's SDC 2024? as suspect crossover for mid-tweet end up similar to seas's recommended network though imagine reduce some of the bsc since acting as mid and additional 2nd order high pass - would feel like cheating, but will see how comes out.
Then have 2 additional projects, to learn from. One using some tang band 4" w1720's with sb26 neo tweet and 5" PR in 0.23 denovo cab and other using seas 17 poly cone and peerless alum tweet (pillaged from 2023 sdc, dat zinger tweet) in a 0.5 denovo cab to mimic the older Meridian designs (owned dsp5000's way back in mid 2000's). Those are both just to learn from, simpler 2way.
Oh, and along the way (this down time during holidays), slapped together some bass bin, stands with epique7 and css 10apr that work well but yearning more for the standalone speaker that hits to targets. Since run the epic7 bass bins with minidsp and 400wpc icepower.
