In Reply to: RE: Felt to absorb tweeter reflections? posted by Inmate51 on April 13, 2017 at 19:55:49
Only the midrange horn is from an EV Sentry.
Tweeter is a Beyma CP25, mid driver is old Klipsch K55V, bass horn is Peavey FH1 with Klipsch K33 woofer. Network is ALK "universal".
They are the evolution of a pair of LaScala I used to own!
Ah, yes - I just read your reply to tomservo regarding the tweeter. Sure looks like the one from the Sentry III/IV though. That's why I was puzzled about the 8K bump. Anyway,...
Not being sarcastic or anything, but, what you have there is what might be called a Rube Goldberg or Frankenstein speaker system - an assemblage of components which don't necessarily work well together, and which you are trying to "fix" by adding band-aids here and there. I think what you're going to find is that the band-aids are introducing their own problems while mitigating some other problems. I'm not so sure that the "notch filter" is going to make the system sound "better", but it certainly will make it sound different.
Still, I AM sure that it's great fun to play around with it and see what happens! Good luck!
My speakers are in fact the result of modding a pair of LaScalas and are all (tweeter, crossover, midrange horn) "recommended" upgrades -or in the case of the crossover, built for the task.
As such I can assure you they are a success as they sound 1000x better than vintage stock LaScalas, and have provided me with great sound for years.
The thing is 1) as an audiophile I keep wanting them to be "better" and 2) I have now dofferent acoustics and it makes treble "issues" stand out more. But they still sound great :)
If the notch filters aren't satisfying I will just remove them, and maybe try to locate a pair of 2404 from JBL in the future.
Hey, don't worry about it! You like them and you're having fun. That's all that matters.
