    Can you get the sensitivity just by looking at the response graph? i.e. if the response falls within 80 and 85db for the most part, is that also the sensitivity?

    Paul: I'm very intrigued. What is the sensitivity on these?

    There are a few possbilities, there: that the rendering for those files naturally smooths things by 1/24th or 1/12th octave, which would effectively eliminate those spikes (unsmoothed FR/phase look a lot like that) - or there's some logarithmic nastiness going on ..

    Oh. Yeah, that does happen to me a lot. I think it comes in the file conversion. I measure in JustMLS, where the phase looks normal. Then I take the file into Response Modeler and "boost" the SPL by 100 dB or so (to bring it up to the mfr spec). Then, for some reason it gets strange values every time the phase wraps 180 degrees. Maybe Jeff knows why this is.

    That's a great idea! Don't egg me on like that...

    Odyssey, Genesis, Channel F, Vectrex, Telstar, Jaguar, Lynx, and my personal favorite--the game system that changed my life--Dreamcast

    Um, what about it?

    And now I'm gonna try real hard not to name my speakers after ancient computers anymore. :o

    How could you possibly skip the "T/S" 1000?

    Not sure where the name came from 'cause IIRC it actually had 2048 bytes of ram, and didn't it come from The Land Down Under?

    Nice design Paul and a fairly low component count on the XO as well. Given the low sensitivity of the M6's, a 2.5 system would really shine with those drivers.

    Nonsense!

    I, for one, want to build a big 3-way called "The Colossus" and a single-driver speaker called the "Zuse".

    It's crossed just shy of 2000 Hz. Don't try this at home, kids. :rolleyes:
    That's what i thought. Impressive Paul.
