  • All Esoteric speaker?

    I don't recall if anyone did an all esoteric design.

    4th try (bill) with the linehoppers TL is the only one I can think of.

      That's right! Bill used the tweeters before they were sold as matched pairs.
      Thanks Chuck.

        Didn't Paul K have an TMM tower? Those would be the only 2 I know of. He took them to MWAF 2 years ago...

        Yep-

              I have no excuse about the linehoppers. I heard them at DDIY. I wish I could have heard yours Paul.

                Wow, the Xenia looks like it has 6 esoteric woofers per side in an isobaric configuration....!

                  That sounds like a waste of 3 perfectly good Esoteric woofers to me, per side. They also have an impedance that is below 4 ohm from 50-500Hz, and a crossover that also looks a bit bonkers. I hope they sound amazing, because they sure will be expensive.
                  Don't waste your money on a new set of speakers, you get more mileage from a cheap pair of sneakers. Next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways it's still rock and roll to me!

                    Does seem an odd choice of driver for an isobaric, and in that design doesnt look to save much room. Kind of wish Dayton do a 9" version of these, or a woven cone RSS range.

                      The rolloff starts at 50 Hz in an ISO? Where's the benefit?

                        I'm not so sure there are 6 woofers per side, even though the descriptions says 6X7" drivers. On the XO schematic it says 3 woofers.
                        Also, on the XO, what is the function of the resister/coil/cap that is parallel to the driver but tied to the same feed?

                          ISO x3...sounds like 6 to me.

                            The images and description shows 6 woofers per side. There is also an image that shows a "Slot" that helps in positioning and inserting the second row of woofers, which is hidden inside the cabinet. The Esoteric should be able to go a lot deeper than 50Hz and the iso should help with the size, though the official f3 is not listed anywhere. Maybe the roll off is countering the room gain, where a cabinet is deliberately tuned low for a shallow roll off to f3 to counter the rising room gain? This would also increase the box size, as you start tuning lower.

                              The impedance shows a tuning around 27Hz if you want to run sims on the cabinet arrangement. The "in cabinet no crossover" chart shows a droopy low end response, that probably ends up fairly flat in-room. Personally I would probably find the bass response quite lean from this setup, as that's been my experience with "flat in room" bass.
