  • Any DIY tower designs that use the Denovo 1.16cu ft flat pack?

    For home theater mains in a medium sized room, close to wall, listening distance 9-10 feet. I don't necessarily need super deep bass extension, as I have the option of crossing them to a 12" Dayton Ref sub.

    The goal is bigger sound, more midbass presence, than my current SR71's (7" TM bookshelves).

    Thanks

      Awesome, thank you. If those are the only ones I would probably just order the Amiga kits.

        What about a design that uses the Anarchy 7"? Here is one, but uses a NLA tweeter: http://projectgallery.parts-express....he-renditions/
        How about the Apollo-7 MTM in a tower?

          Not crazy about an MTM because of the tweeter height, but those Renditions look awesome. Wish there was a link to cabinet dimensions, is there a build thread with more info? I searched but didn't find anything. Thanks

          Wolf's Nephila, the box needs modded a bit. Wolf seems to think they are pretty nice. Component kit available elsewhere.

            Random thought... Give them a little built on stand and port out the bottom for the Apollo's to bring the tweeters up. Those Anarchy woofers are great.

                  Also...any speaker you can find with an 8" wide baffle and LESS THAN 1.16 cu ft would work as you could just put a divider in place to not use the un-need volume.

                  I did a quick look and found a lot more 8.5" wide speakers.

                    You could do a two way with the Peerless SDS-160 (available from PE) and the Vifa BC25TG, a sort of clone of a German DIY design "Startair 2S".

                    That design used the 830657 but the SDS-160 sounds the same and has more Xmax.

                    I made a test build in a smaller cabinet (0.5 cu ft) but found the sound a little bright, have since tweaked the XO for better balance but this woofer really needs the larger cabinet.

                      From me:
                      Nephila

                      I know there are more, but the cabinet was championed by Paul and used several times over.

                        The Nephila puts the tweeter higher than any other design using this somewhat short cab. Also visually "out of the rut".

                          Very nice, unfortunately the yellow is not my cup of tea.

                        Yes, the cabinet is based on the ProAc Studio 125.
                        beautiful little floorstander that. Especially in the veneers that ProAc offered them in: yew, and birds-eye maple.

                        It’s the speaker that got me into the hobby over 2 decades ago.

                        It’s a very suitable cabinet for many 6.5-7” midwoofers of the era.

                        The late Stewart Tyler knew certainly what he was doing, with mirror imaged off-set tweeters, thicker baffles, constrained layer damping, full baffle step compensation etc.

                          Paul's Spectrum is alive again, now that the Neo3 is back.
