    Re: My RS180 MTM Design

    Which tweeter did you use and did you use the original crossover design? Also assuming you used the RS180-8's in parallel?

    Where did you get that carbon fiber fabric. I like that.

    Thought I'd share a couple of completed photos of my cc of this design. Keep in mind, I'm no photographer and these photos were taken with my phone. Very pleased thus far but haven't got a ton of listening time in. Thanks for the design, Jeff!! I would have posted a build thread, however, I forgot to stop and take pictures along the way. 3/4 MDF with a Latex in satin black finish. Baffle is wrapped in the faux carbon fiber fabric and countersunk into the face to match the mains I should have set up for too awfully long.

    Thanks for finding that. I think you should be good with the non-shielded tweeter based on Paul's measurements.

    Thanks Jeff,

    I have been over the thread quite a few times, Pete S said yes to drop in for RS28A.
    The thread just seems to bounce around a little bit (not bad, and not bashing the thread).
    Then there is a few that say no to the drop-in of the RS28A.
    My main intention of asking is so that the end result (if/when built) they are correct. Rule #1 - Don't mess with a Jeff B. design, Rule #2 - Don't mess with a Jeff B. design (the pixies - where is my mind, is on in the background - made me think of Fight Club - the movie.)

I believe it was Paul Carmody who posted the overlaid response of both to show how close they were. I can't really make the comparison you mentioned without having at the very least, one of each kind of tweeter, and I don not have the "s" version at this time.

    It is such a great design, I would love (and by the looks of the responses, so would others) be able to have access to build it without any compromises to your work.

    Thank you

    Did we not see some of the build before? I seem to think so. Anyway, nice work on the cabs.

I'll do a quick couple of photos and post them in the Project Gallery section when they are complete. Thanks again, Jeff.. for the design and your assistance with some questions a while back.

    I used that port , untrimmed , on the back baffle directly behind the tweeter.
