This project entailed building two (2) small format MTM PA speakers utilizing the best materials, components, and construction techniques.
Build an enclosure that had very high SPL, power handling, and excellent fidelity.
3/4″ Baltic Birch plywood with zero fasteners. Entire enclosure is held together with beach-wood biscuits and glue. This method while taking longer actually ensures a stronger bond and zero chance of vibration and resonant frequencies from fasteners coming loose.
The only fasteners that were used were 10-32 T-Nuts and grade 8 SHCS’s to hold the drivers in place. 1/4″-20 grade 8BHCS’s and clamps were used to hold the grills. Pan head wood screws and finish washers hold the aluminum wave guide in place.
Crossover was electronic by choice of Ashly Protea 3.6SP
While this project was very time consuming, it yielded a product far superior than any big name PA speaker that could be purchased. We utilized the finest materials, construction methods, and Eminence Drivers for a high quality product. This design is very unique in the sense that there are next to no PA speakers in the MTM format using a wave guide like this. We steered in a different direction than the typical line array MTM design. This gave a much more versatile use for its application
