Wasn't Eddie working on the surround project. Does anyone know if he's made any progress yet?

ray


Ray I am still working on that put every thing I found at this time is that I would have to lay out alot of cash to have tooling made. I am looking for the original maker of the surrounds or woofers and had no luck in doing so! But I am still looking for some one to make them or anyone who can make them put it is not going so good! Eddie!


It's already started Eddie.... GO POST viewtopic.php?f=28&t=11167

It's not about better; one is for the Original ALS and one is for the Platinum ALS (& I think same app for the Silver ALS).

Re: Dynavox

It sure is a lot easier working with high impedance (16Ω) speakers in arrays, though.

Re: Dynavox

For shits and giggles I emailed about the ETA of the wp-1120.

They have none at the moment for they don't even have the parts in for them yet.

Re: Dynavox

The reason I ask which is better is I am thinking about using them in a custom speaker project and just wondered if one driver was better than the other, I wonder if the db output at one watt is the same for both of them.

The 16 ohm drivers are easier to run in a parallel configuration than the 4 ohm. Makes the crossover completely different as well. If you're going to actively bi-amp to avoid passive crossovers, I'd go the 16 ohm route & run them parallel.

I want to use 8 12" on each side so i guess i can run two stacks of four in parallel and then run these in series to end up with 8 ohms. I liked the looks of the honeycone driver better than the paper cone but it is probably better. if i use the Honeycone driver it i guess i would have to run two stacks of 4 in series to get 16 ohms and then wire them in parallel to give the amp an 8 ohm load. I plan to bi-amp with a clearview electronic crossover. I just got two new 60" ribbons from Toy Maker today for this project, Now i have to get the slab built to hold it all. My originals will move to the back of the room. I saw a picture of the original concept amazings and they had 6 square woofers on each side so I thought, I should do that to my pair.

Re: Dynavox

Probably a little crazy. Hay I saw the post with the giant 27” woofers on each end of the speaker so I did not want to be outdone.

Re: Dynavox

Toy Maker seems to be moving now. How can he be provoked to produce the surrounds we all so desperately need? Anyone with the right answer moves to the top step!

Obviously, you haven't read his signature.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
