I've decided to build a pair of old school mains for an upcoming demo in the company's new listening room (more on the latter in a dedicated thread later on). The system must be up and running by the 8:th of May, so this project must indeed be quick (as in "10 days to go"), and dirty (as in "cheap prefab boxes"). In order to save time, I'll run the system 3- or 4-way active, and (if time permits...) tidy up the FR with an inverse filter. I do have all the components, amps and crossovers, as well as boxes with uncut baffles, so now it's "just" to build the speakers and dial them in. (The room also needs lots of attention to be operational -- the final acoustics preparation is still on the drawing table...)
As evident from the drawing below, the system is well suited for experimentation. Apart from the various modes listed in the drawing, the bass bins will be used as distributed subs in a 5.1 setup for experiments with room mode suppression. Finally the monitors might end up flush mounted in "real" cabinets -- if I can convince the Genelec and Geithain camps, that is
Any and all comments and suggestions would be highly appreciated!
