Stormtroopers, as dubbed by my wife. This was a learning project in terms of design and build.
Flat response with extended flat bass response and managing to amke the Peerless tweeter work with the Aurum Cantus woofer. Largish bookshelf was the goal with transparency, soundstage, and efficiency.
Aurum Cantus 8 ohm 7″ woofer
Peerless Dual concentric 4 ohm tweeter
2″ port with flare
MDF 1.7 L modeled on iOS exclusively
XO is 3rd order butterworth, zobel on both drivers at 8/4 ohms respectively, and attenuation network (Variable L-Pad) on the tweeter. Over engineered the copper wire at 10-12 AWG internally and externally.
Surface mount only, time ran out and wanted it done. Flush mount on future builds.
3rd order buttersworth, zobel on both drivers, L-Pad on tweeters
There is better than anticipated off axis response, high efficiency, clean soundstage, transparency with DAC supplied music, warm lovely vinyl music, very good background music experience, some challenges with near off axis and port leakage, latter now resolved with stuffing.
