  • Large Monster Stereo Speakers. What's the largest you've built?

    As I'm sitting here at work with nothing to do due to the weather, I got cruising the world wide web and ran across the Infinity IRS V. What an awesome looking setup! Then I got thinking: How hard would it be to build 4 separate cabinets, one containing six 12 inch woofers reaching down to 16 Hz, and the other holding like 30 tweets and 16 or so midrange to get all the way up to 40 KHz. Could it be that difficult? I know there'd be a significant investment, but why not? The Servo is the only part I don't understand, but no problem Tri_amping.
    We recently bought a farm and I have a large pole barn to do with whatever I please. The new man cave is leaving the confines of the house living room, and will be whatever I decide to build in the barn. This leaves lots of possibilities and and offers a place for something as large as these IRS V speakers. So what's the largest, closest thing to being at the show speakers anyone has built? Please chime in.

    The Finale kit is one I always wanted to hear. Those and the Mirage WMTM 3-ways.

    Later,

    They might be skinny, but my version of the Kuze3201's are six feet tall and have a very "big" sound. The Dynaudio Finales are big, heavy and have a low WAF (but sure do sound nice!)
    My take on the Kuze3201 Line Array, with a subwoofer Dynaudio Finales

    Biggest one I ever did came after I divorced my first wife, so we are talking late 70's. There were no computers then, no measuring systems, and not much knowledge on my part.
    It had a pair of 12" acoustic suspension woofers in about a 4 Cu ft box. There were upright posts in each of the corners, and above the woofer box was a baffle that had a self enclosed midrange, I think a Vifa, maybe Peerless, but it could have been something else, a cheap dome tweeter, memory says something like a K-10 but not even sure what that refers to, and I also had a piezo supertweeter, that was shortly disconnected. I don't know how I devised a crossover for it. I think all that I had available then was formulas in Speaker Builder. But, it sounded good enough that a friend made a copy of it, but with better cabinetry. I can't remember what became of it either, but I no longer have it. It was huge, with impressively big sound.

    Continuing the 511B porn, here's a nice set of 9846 clones someone made, although the 9846 was originally a studio monitor and nowhere near as pretty.

    Saddly, I don't have the pictures on this computer of my largest speaker. I built 2 10 foot tall monster for my church. They each had 4 Dayton rs225,a bunch of Rs Mids, some seas aluminum tweeters and 2 8" tang band subs in a folded horn(wicked one sub-woofer). I get to listen to them every Sunday. When I ran a bass test cd on them after I installed them the shook the whole church. Awesome.

    These are in the music room. The theater room has a pair of JBL 4430s and a Econowave for the center using a similar woofer (JBL 136a)
