  • Americana's My 2018 Indiyana entry

    I'm tentatively calling these the americana, do to the paint scheme being similar to an old vending machine. The drivers will be a tang band 1761 min tweeters coaxially mounted to a dayton rs100p, and finally a tang band w69 woofer. These are basically multiple truncated pyramids with different side angles, and that includes the internal enclosure for the rs100p.

      looks great so far!

      can you give more details about how you mounted the tweeter in the mids?

        Very nice, aluminum ring around the tweeter?

          I am SO digging the truncated pyramids. I've been thinking about building something like that for a long time.

            Nice! Looks like the competition might be pretty stiff in the Spring...

                I think not! ...but the gauntlet has surely been thrown...
                I know what Javad, Nick, Bill, Kenny, JohnH, and myself are doing; and it will be pretty stiff competition!

                  How hard is it to remove the phase plug from the RS drivers?

                    The phase plug can be removed easily by turning the driver upside down and giving it a sharp hit with a punch that fits the hole...it's a 2 second ordeal.

                      pretty easy, it is glued on. Tap from the magnet vent hole and it will pop out.

                        Nick, nice build. The guys with the lathes will do well in this competition. I surprised Ben knows what I'm doing as I'm not quite sure myself.

                            Me either.

                            Geez ... If I'm ever able to get to one of these meets, I'll leave my stuff at home.

                              I thought sure I recalled what you told me at MWAF.... Maybe not!?

                              I really like that Nick is using the W69 TB woofer, as I've not heard that one yet. I had/have(?) a flat lo-pro W69, and really as underwhelmed. The other seems like a better driver. For those that heard it- we know how good his coaxes sounded in the tapered fiberglass pods he had at MWAF a couple years ago.

                              This is going to be fun!
