    Fine, let's say <5" diameter magnet for CDs.

    I'm still a newb. Though from what I've learned I'm pretty sure the bare domes with big rear chambers will steal the show... But the calling to go against the grain has always been strong for me. Whatever it is I'm Interested to hang.

    Limit to the size of the CD magnet? Or just purely the horn/faceplate. Ive got some CDs that I think are 4.5"dia. Otherwise ill probably have to buy something else.

    Not sure what that would gain you. Not this time.

    This rear mounted tweeter is out but what about a reflector on the tweeter?

    Nope, no homemade horns.

    Can I use a CD with a homemade horn?

  • Wolf
    replied
    Since compression drivers need horns, and some come with, as long as it is under dimension, this is fine. A 4" square CD/horn is okay. This will likely limit to 1" exit drivers and loading will likely not be better than 2k.

    To clarify, can we use a horn driver that is intended to be used with a horn as long as the horn is 4 1/8" or smaller?

    I may have started that discussion, where any pro-style compression driver where you have to add a waveguide would be not allowed. Carving out a wave guide in the baffle for a tweeter would not be allowed. I assume rear mounting a tweeter would also Not be allowed

    I think there was some misunderstanding going on. This past SDC weekend told me that.
    if the tweeter has a waveguide and is as small as required, only then are waveguides permissible. You cannot add your own.
    Cutting down of faces to fit the rules is also prohibited.

    I was just showing that you don't necessarily need a tweeter that can be crossed at 1.5k. It could be that a lower xo would sound better. That's all. The x-over is not a simple one on this (my) speaker, and this was not a totally finished design. I only have one RS270p woofer currently, Got lucky on the off axis I suppose. I have some Morel. and CSS tweeters I could try, but my future plan may be a 3-way with this woofer.
Working...
