    The further the measuring distance the better. You want a far field measurement--a couple times the wavelength in question. Obviously that's not possible for very deep.

    Why does Zilch use 44" distance when he takes his measurements instead of 1 meter (39.4") ?

    Good to know. I don't check that site out very often.

    I agree, it's been quite a while since he's posted anywhere. I've sent him a few emails about the prototype waveguides but haven't heard back. He's usually pretty quick with responses.

    Hopefully he's doing okay and just took some time off from the 'interwebs' to get other stuff done. I'd make a quick call if I knew his number.

    Why??

    Active removes so many issues that handcuff passive designs.

    The design behind the passive crossover is critical to the design NOT the passive crossovers themselves. All my QSC builds are active and not passive.

    Thanks! I'll have to look that up

    Thanks! Any input into why active isn't recommended? Now that I look at the XO's I see the one on page 4 is pretty much the same as the 5 component one Pete posted on page 2. I could probably skip the L-Pad and use the DCX to shape the response - I guess that would only be around $50 in parts.

    The problem is I'd like to try to cross a bit lower than this since I'm using a 15" instead of the 12" the Deluxe uses - the vertical window will be even smaller :o

    Re: Flex Your PCD Mettle:

    I'm currently running something very similar to the EWave Deluxe with B&C DE500 on a QSC 152i (is that right? the one everyone's using) over an AE TD15M in an active setup.

    I don't have much experience with crossovers though and am always tweaking something here and there. Right now I'm crossing LR24 at 1.2kHz. I was wondering if someone could help me translate the crossover for the EWave Deluxe to what I would input on my Behringer DCX2496 to try out? Maybe even just the filters to smooth the CD out actually (I'm not very confident I'm using the appropriate filters to compensate for the waveguide)?

    I had also considered building the passive XO for the EWave Deluxe but wasn't sure what to build. The main posts has two links for the Deluxe one around page 2 that eventually has a very simple XO posted by Pete and then one to a post much later with a much more complex XO?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated

    Re: Flex Your PCD Mettle:

    I am leaning toward a separate amp for main speakers and subs now. The new Crown Drivecore amps are very inexpensive and have 24db LR filters built in, so I am thinking Ewave mini down to 100hz then maybe a tapped horn for 35 to 100hz. I just have to research some plans.

    But I plan on building a few different subs.
