Help with designing a crossover

I think your Fiberglasss Speaker box will work. But be careful with the insulating material. It would be better if you clear the insulating material before putting on the resin coat otherwise it might become a bit messy. You have a perfect idea so go ahead with it.

Help with designing a crossover

So does anyone else or even Joel himself have any opinions on whether its a good idea to do 2 methods in one WO?

Also how does my training plan look?

Any help/advice would be really appreciated

Help with designing a crossover

What do you mean by showing up through your textures? Do you mean youre making your own textures, or just applying premade textures and something else is showing through?
Gimme details and Ill do what I can to help

Help with designing a crossover

Ah C:Runtime does the job.

Its counterintuitive at first,
but it works, and also provides a sort of
quarantined upload zone.

Thanks I would never have
figured that out from the Winzip help files.

joetama I understand there would be an increase in performance by using just about anything other than your current setup. However, what really is the point to building it yourself if you aren't going to go for the best sounding design that you can build yourself. If you aren't going to challenge yourself and learn something out of the whole ordeal you might as well go buy some Klipsch or JBL speakers.

AUr6 I appreciate the help & suggestions guys.

I'm not going for something golden here... just something for fun to see what happens. If you saw the speakers I'm replacing, you'd understand that it wouldn't take much for an improvement (think mid-70's era speakers... 3-ways with a hole where a passive radiator used to be... particle board with the back stapled into place)

I guess the main goal for me on this one wasn't so much to try and shape the output of the speakers like you might do for home stereo/theater use, but more or less try to make sure I find the right crossover values within each speaker's useful range...

I figured it might be fun to have something that I could screw around with and not worry to much if I FUBAR the crossover.

seagrasser If you really wanted to stick with the project, you could buy the crossover mentioned in the design and reverse engineer it. Or look into this one and see if you can predict the response.

It has better components and would probably sound better.

Looking at the PE page on the design, the design would likley benefit from a notch filter somewhere around 8 or 9khz to dampen that spike, and something would have to be done about the dip in the 2.5khz range.

My opinion is that if you want a garage speaker, this would fit the bill. If you want to design your own crossover look for better drivers. I'm not sure these would benefit from the extra effort.

joetama Jim speaks the truth. I've built a couple of 2-Way projects and have been designing a 3 way project for almost a year now. Getting the drivers from AudioJunkies threw a wrench in the design, but still 3-way is hard to do with out knowing exactly what you are dealing with.

However, honestly with the "woodies' project the speaker drivers themselves aren't the type quality you would write home about. So, they would probably benefit from a specific designed crossover but not that much.
