I'm building a semi partial line array/hybrid array whatever the heck they are called cause I don't think they really have a name after reading all the sites I can find. The design is 10-12 midbasses in a line with a point source tweeter in the center deligated in a 2.5 or 3.5 way designed crossover depending on modeling. Anyways, I'm wondering about driver alignment. I've seen several designs that have the midbasses offset from the center 1-2 inches. I understand why. My question is: If I am to build an array with the midbasses offset like these other models, but push the tweeter towards the other side of the baffle so the midbasses can be a little closer together, will this have any adverse effect on sound? Also will this help with driver spacing thus allowing me to cross at a slightly higher frequency? I hope it is clear what I'm trying to ask. It is very difficult to word. I only want to make one or two sets of baffles. Lots of holes ya know;)
Thank you for any input

You'll never know the difference but I would offset the tweeter.
10-12 drivers? WWWWMTMWWWW ???

WWWWMMTMMWWWW with the outer two driver hopefully being the .5

Those extra M's might be a real problem.
Yep, i see a major problem in the phase-coherance at -52.55674hz. Not good.

What if I was to tune the box to above that frequency? I'm gonna build a sub to take care of 80 or 90 down.

He was pulling your leg Blair. But seriously 4 mids is a bad idea imo. Gimmie a call and we can discuss some better options.

Regardless of the mids, I emailed you to see if you wanted to get together with me and Dave this weekend to have some drinks and talk about projects. I just didn't read the thread with any common sense. Seroiusly gullable when I read some of the responses:) The worst part is that I tease people all the time. Sucker for my own game.

I was just trying to get some humor back around here!
