Re: Speaker help required...

Unfortunately, driver design in particularly the past 15 years has moved away from the type of units used in the TDL, so you'll struggle to find current equivalents. About the closest general production unit I can think of to that model (note I am not saying it is spectacularly close, though it's in...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Well, with series filters you've got in effect a single circuit where all components including the drivers are (to a point) connected with each other; in parallel circuits each leg is more or less independent electrically speaking. YMMV whether that makes for better integration or not. Quite possibl...

Re: Yorkshire Hi-Fi Club

Providing I'm not stuck at an archive in London, I'll (finally) be able to make one of these. Sounds like it'll be a good day.

Re: Fane 12-250TC Retro Speaker.

Too right. I'd also buy from elsewhere rather than giving them business.

Re: Fane 15" full range speaker

For what it's worth, it was Thiele who was largely responsible for popularising golden ratio for speaker cabinets back in the early - mid '70s. Nominally it spreads the eigenmodes / reduces their build-up. It's not the only option of course, pretty much any irrational number basis can be used as an ...

Re: David Wilson

Yes, some were IIRC (I've not slept for 4 nights, heading to bed in a minute). They have vented too, depending on the model. David was very canny at manipulating responses to produce a particular sound; whether you like it or not he knew what he was doing. They've use[d] a few Scan based units, espe...

David Wilson

David Wilson finally passed away a few days back. Like Wilson Audio or no (I don't, but if you get beyond the cliches there are aspects of his approach that are worth noting), & whatever you think about the pricing, he was a major figure, quite a nice person by most accounts, and a rather talented r...

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

I've loved everything they've done. I first ran across them back in '04 when one of the old digital channels broadcast highlights from the previous year's Festival au Desert. Something about a telecaster with those lads makes a lot of sense.

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

Right. It's useful that some of the simpler software out there can do it too though; they're often a little more capable than people realise. Attached is a very quick & dirty overlay comparison in WinISD assuming the Seas A26 used in the WD25 series. Yellow is a Butterworth (Qtc = 0.707) aligned sea...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

Most decent box modelling s/w can do aperiodic, or at least get as near-as-makes-no difference. Best way of doing it for a basic aperiodic is to model as a vented box in something like WinISD, reduce the vent size down to a very small area & whatever notional tuning frequency with that that gives yo...

Re: Monacor SP-310CX Coaxial Driver MLTL's

a poser for Scott, maybe Would it be possible to sim this driver in a W25t or possibly an A25/35 or similar, and what would you use..... I have some notes from the middle of last year and I couldn't get this driver any lower than 120hz in a reflex box, and closed it came out at less than 20 ltrs, n...
