    No real noticable difference on the RTA. (Maybe 1 dBA reduction between the suck-out and peak.)


    But the increased cabinet volume, though small, would help and there is the...

    Knocked His Block Off

    The Mermans do females great, but there is a suck-out at 250 Hz, with a dip below and peaks above and below the dip that affects male voices. I attribute most of this to the cabinets that are made...

    She Was Literally Brought to Tears!

    We have a 21 year old UCI student that comes to the house three hours a day to help out. The other day she was wearing a Taylor Swift Tour tee-shirt and I asked if she listened to music.

    She said...

    My understanding is that on-axis lobing is not an issue so long as the drivers are located within 1/4 wavelength of each other. A 1kHz tone is ~1 foot, so 1/4 wavelength is ~3 inches. So as long as...

    Not original and the 136 actually goes a bit lower, but falls off a bit sooner.

    But, there really are no 136 cones left so, there is what there is.

    If you put a 136 and 2235 on the bay, both in...

    I felt the 2241 was too loud so now use a 20 ohm parallel resistor to reduce the volume and made changes to the crossovers to compensate accordingly.

    2241 is now crossed at ~320-325 Hz and better...

    Higher impedience will also have a higher BL. The BL is a measure of the "control" of the woofer movement with higher being tighter.

    One benefit of 4 ohm is that SS amps will make more power into...

    Visibly, there is a difference in the thickness between a D130 and a 130A so they do not use the same cones, even as replacements. (There are also internal differences such as wire material.)

    I made some changes to bring in the 200-400 Hz a bit more and remove a bit (~2 dB) of the bass.

    I've also found that "flat" may not be the most musical nor the most intelligible. While the overall curve should decline slightly, I like a bit of "brightness" in the 1-4 kHz area and it only...

    Like I said, Wurlitzer uses reeds and Rhodes uses wands/tines to produce the sound and I think that the reeds have more harmonics. Both have a sustain pedal.
