Re: Tubes

I’ve collected the pipe this morning, pretty substantial looking stuff. I’m waiting on the 8 inch drivers being delivered and need to get some 18mm plywood. Hopefully I will have everything I need over the next few days.

Re: Tubes

Quite possibly not. At 22mm thick the pipe should be pretty substantial on its own. I’m really interested in hearing these. If these work I can get the pipe in larger diameters to try the 12 inchers.

Re: Tubes

Stu, that makes perfect sense and is what I was thinking of doing for the tweeter. I have another idea too using a dremel tool.

Dan, the idea was to line with lead then paint the entire inside with bison. I can try them without any lining first though to compare the difference.

Re: Tubes

I’ve ordered a 1m length of 355mm HDPE with a 22.1mm wall thickness. This should be plenty for 2 speakers. I just need to decide on the length for each speaker.

Re: Tubes

Absolutely! Half the fun is in trying ideas out! I’ve emailed a couple of pipe manufacturers to see what the costs involved are. I’m struggling to find anywhere online with that diameter pipe in stock. I will persevere!

Re: Concrete Cube

Do you prefer the presentation of point and squirt over semi omni regardless of the number of drivers?

I think some custom built boxes would give you improvements.

Re: Tubes

Yeah there are a couple of ways of mounting the legs, it should be pretty straight forward. I can’t see why these shouldn’t sound good but I guess it’s a case of suck it and see!

Dan, what is it that you prefer about two front baffle mounted speakers?
