    The Maurbacs are more efficient, and will play louder. The Galeons are more refined, detailed, and will play deeper. Between the two, I'd
    recommend the Maurbacs for the garage.

I did a project a long time ago with some Def Tech buyout 5.25" woofers that helped give me a healthy appreciation for what a good paper cone driver can do in the mids.

      thanks so much Scott - I feel I get a bit better with each build.

        FYI: I would have probably voiced mine closer to the surface mount curve

        I knew someone would like that BBC voicing! The horizontal axis performance was a bit of a surprise, and undoubtedly contributes
        to the wide soundstage image.

          Eventually you'll have to do a shootout with your Targas.

            Yep - of course that's coming. Too bad there isn't a $25 level-compensated speaker switcher.

              Nice to see all these DCR's showing up, thought I would be the only crazy one to try this. :p

              Very nice build :applause:
              If we all reacted the same way, we'd be predictable, and there's always more than one way to view a situation.
              What's true for the group is also true for the individual. It's simple: Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness.

                That's some nice looking plywood Don. And good looking work too. Although I'm not totally sure what I'm looking at. I'm sure I'd enjoy a listen if I had a chance.

                  Thanks Tom - I am really digging the DCR. Most of the advantages of a TL with the ease of a normal bass reflex alignment.

                    Thanks dude - well, they are in Atlanta.....
                    Lots of folks expressed interest in the SB13s, so I'm sure we'll see various builds as they are completed.

                      Re: Galeons - SB13 MTM

                      Looks nice Don, very sensible XO design.

                      You mention -3dB at 35 and splicing, was that a near field measurement
                      for the low bass?

                        Yah, used Omnimic at 1 meter, then nearfield measurements of the woofer, and each port, then spliced together
                        (Think I did it correctly....)

                          Another great build Don

                          Just wondered why your 3-way failed? I'm only asking because i'm thinking of doing a 3-way myself but don't know whether to risk it or not.

                            Thanks buddy -
                            My three way "failed" or is "on hold" because I was trying to build a small 3 way (15 liters), and found that the
                            midrange enclosure was causing a bit of + - 2dB wiggles in a critical area. I'd need to probably
                            destroy the boxes and baffles and start over, so I shelved them and moved on for now.
