  • Peerless Nomex 830869 - 8" Nomex

    Any proven builds for the Peerless Nomex 830869 - 8" Nomex?
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    We used 4 of them in a 10 ft^3 box along with a 511 horn, crossed at 800Hz. They sound great, and reach down to about 30Hz, but that may not be the sort of build you were looking for

      Thanks but it looks like this driver is quite capable of a reasonably sized TM. That's what I'm looking for.

        Oh, reasonably sized. Well, that's different!

          Hello

          I did a Google search for 'Peerless 830869 crossover' and found something called a "Nightingale" but of course have no idea of its quality or size. It looks like a commercial speaker. The tweeter is a Selenium D220Ti/PH715, which I haven't heard of. Perhaps other TT participants have used it, or know of it?

          The link is to a commercial site.

          There was another project which used the Peerless with a Dayton RS52 midrange and a VIFA XT25SC90 tweeter, again I don't know anything else about that one. The crossover was rather complex (and expensive!)

          Hope this helps

              I have one in the works, but very far away.... will be complete next year maybe? It's a high eff TMWW, woofer section is vented with Fb of 40, f3 of 40, 98db @2.83v before Bsc, say around 4db would still net 94db @ 2.83, xmax exceeds at 35Hz with 100watts at 113db.

                Thinking of making a kit with the SEOS-8 w/ XT25 and that very woofer for DIY Soundgroup.

                  Thanks Pete. Not a fan of wave guides though, especially large ones. Not performance, I just don't like the appearance.

                      Can't be too far fetched from the Usher 8955 or the Peerless Exclusive. I bet it would work.

                          That's funny. Pete suggested I use a wave-guided tweeter in the last year or so in response to a query I sent him, and I told him I didn't like their looks, either.

                            That's why they make speaker grills . . .

                              If you need ideas, take a look at my Maximus build, it is a three way but maybe a good starting point for you.
