    Re: Misfits: An economical 2way tower

    Hi isaeagle4031,
    Very nice design. May have to build this!
    Could you post a sketch of the cabinet with driver spacings?
    What wire gauge did you use for the inductors?

      Thank you. I will try to get a detailed drawing up in the next few days. The cabinet dimensions are40"h x8.5"w x6"d. 5/8" material for the sides, top, and back. 3/4 for the baffle and 1-1/8 for the base (just cause I had it) The tweeter is centered on the baffle and 3.5" to its center from the top and flush mounted. The woofer is also centered and located 5.625" from center to center. I chose not to flush mount the woofer for a bit better AC offset. The port is 2"d x 4.5" long. I lined the back wall with mattress topper behind the drivers.

        Very nice work. I'm glad to see the Tymphany DA25BG get some love around here, as I haven't seen a lot of people using it. The DA25BG looks and seems to perform like the offspring of the Vifa D25AG-35 and the SEAS 27TBFC/G, which are two of my favorite metal domes.

            The sb29 is a great tweeter, but it did not fit the design criteria for this build which were 1) cost, and 2) a new driver that I had not tried (or many others) before.

                Happy you liked them Ken. They really are a phenomenal value imo.

                    I recently decided to use the Misco 6102-8 woofer that I have had sitting in my inventory for some 5 years (doh!). So I wanted to try its 4 ohm sibling. To this I decided to use the recently released Tymphany DA25BG08-06 tweeter. I could have used an even less expensive tweeter as the Misco woofer actually has very flat response out to 5k. Anyone looking for a replacement for those baby Advents, here ya go! They work quite well for that application.

                    The crossover is a series design (Dang you Ben! lol) using only 6 components with only 1 of those being a resistor. The slopes work out to BW5 on both drivers and cross right around 2.1k.

                    For the cabinets, I used 5/8 particle board for the sides, top, and back, 3/4 veneered shelving for the baffle and because I had it, a chunk of 1-1/8" for the base. I haven't decided on what I want for the finish yet. The overall dimensions work out to 8.5" wide, 6" deep and overall 40" tall. Volume comes in at about .71 cubes and with the 2"x6" port, is tuned to 40Hz. The resulting f3/6/10 is 41/35/30. I may trim the port a bit later, we'll see.
                    Those are tiny pictures.
                    No matter where you go, there you are.

                      Looking forward to some build schematics and some larger pics, as these seemed to have won over a lot of people

                        Here's the crossover schematic. I have to see if I can find some other pics

                          And a couple of pics. After these were taken, I applied duratex to the top and sides.
