Mn-14 should be on the forum, as I took them to Iowa 2007 where they won the super-budget category. If not- the photos of xover are in my 'bucket and such. It's possible neither are on the forum, but I likely have those older ones on a disc here at home...

    I'll see what I can do...

    Oh- forgot another one:

      Way back when Radio Shack sold good stuff, they had a very nice cast frame full range driver that performed admirably. I used a pair of them with very good results.

        Apparently, the old photos are now showing again with the new management takeover at P'Bucket. I have not uploaded to the account since the takeover and tried to post anywhere, but I plan to and see what happens. I don't know if the interface is any better just yet, as it was pretty crummy last I used it.

          Don't feel so bad, the changes to the Forum software here resulted in my not being able to use my preferred moniker. Æ

            Your moniker shows up in your post just now....
            My issues were not with the forum software.

              Anyone figure out the figure out the NOLA design? Both 8 ohm TC9's in parallel, in phase, one with a 20uf cap in series?

                    I have a pair of RS100-4 that I am looking for a home for.

                    Thanks
                    Erich at DIYSoundgroup sent me this little gem to work up a crossover for an upcoming kit. I'd never worked on such a small speaker before. It was only when I set them up about 3' from my listening position that they began to really impress me. Not sure when Erich will have the kit(s) for this speaker up on his site.

                    Even without the tweeter, the RS100-4 made for a very nice full range speaker. I made a 3 component EQ network that tamed the upper mids and smoothed out the response, leaving a little rise in the top octave.

                    The first pic is the response of the RS100-4 with the 3 component EQ. The second is the response of the 2-way.

                      Started when I was a kid, and nothing I built sounded especially good to me. Ports were always wrong. Crossovers, too.

                      I guess I’m confessing to building a lot of garbage over the years.

                        Try this if link if you're interested in Brio clones. Craig (PWR RYD) did a similar design, but more of a traditional open baffle on the top. I heard it at a SD DIY and it really surprised me with its sound.

                            Iit may not qualify for your interpretation of budget but I built the side firing version of Curt's Cinderella a few years back and they still serve as the main speakers in our living room. They do so many things right I just can't justify building a more expensive design to replace them. They actually replaced the much larger RS MTMW that I worked on with Dennis Murphy and others.
                            Great budget speaker, small footprint with big sound.
