My name is Viktor, I am from
Poltava, Ukraine. Recently I have
finished your project " 3 - way classic". I made MDF body
plus oak with Herberts toning and 9 layers of Sayerlack and men made
leather. Inside I put 30 mm of thick felt and midrange padding
polyester inside a box.
This body inspired me: http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/3WClassic_RichardKuba.htm
Please, don't think it is a plagiarism. I made the body all by
myself. I have a small woodworking workshop. I made ash support by
This is my work from the beginning to the end:
The wall thickness is 27 mm, total
weight is 28 kg. The throttle I made myself and impregnate with
lacquer. I used around 6 kg of copper. I
made the body a slight bigger because my throttle are bigger than
those you used. I wanted to save a volume. Vent
tuning around 36 Hz.
I have some concern about
In the area of 200hz?
I also measured TND+N
How do you think, does it look real?
I used: http://saveimg.ru/show-image.php?id=5640b872b1fcf83df47bcb9319710313
I also tried the vent tuning for 45 Hz, but I did not like it.
For filters I used Bennic capacitors because of sours economy, and
usual white " blocks" resistors. http://www.newoldsounds.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=10615
I would like to know your opinion about reasonability of using
more expensive crossover components for this construction, and about
" white blocks" - resistors. You gave a really good
comparison with, for example, electromagnetic relay " in-
flight" of two pare of acoustic with the expensive crossover
components and cheap ones. What do you think about my speaker, should
I use more expensive components and what would work best?
My source point is M - Audio 2496 plus foobar. My
amplifier - http://cxo.lv/index.php/solder/amps/43-holton00
What do you'd think, do I need a higher level source for my
speakers? Should I use E-MU 1212 or ASUS STX, and is there any sense,
in your opinion, in those kind of speakers? In
my case, I wasn't able to get a distance more than 5 cm between a
magnet CA22RNX and L2041, L2031. http://saveimg.ru/show-image.php?id=049f12e9bbf034682a9f2fcb6cb70d0c
How important that reciprocal effect?
Now, I want to talk a little about sound: Mid - detailed, a little
bright (screaming) on the level above mid, I don't know, maybe because
of room. Low sound - quite clear, but not enough of a low range (
range down?) Maybe F3 = 45 Hz...
I am satisfied with the sound- my time wasn't waisted. Thank
you very much for creation of those speakers. You are a great
Sincerely, Viktor, Ukraine.
