Re: Looking for a change
I've sent the plans. You've got mail! I would suggest using your existing subs, flanking the mains, as described in these posts: Room modes, multisubs and flanking subs Helper Woofer LocationFor more information: Pi Speakers FAQ

Re: 4Pi Placement
The main thing is to cross the mains axes in front of the listeners, and to use flanking subs. The flanking subs will both add extension and also smooth the self-interference notches from the wall behind the speakers, vertical modes and other similar an...

Re: First coil in woofer's LPF with and without helper woofers
That's kind of the point, yes. If you don't use helper woofers, then the mains are the only sound sources down low. And those tend to both rolloff sooner and shift source directivity from (baffle influenced) halfspace to omnidirectional. Then add to t...

Re: "Are Audiophiles Wasting Their Money?"
Hi, I have encountered a number of similar thought, both pro and con. I find there is some merit to each. If you go the really cheap route and get big box store stuff it is almost always unsatisfactory in some manner. Frequently it will not last well. ...

Re: Pete's Home Theater Build
Sounds like a great plan. I think that's what I would do too. Are you still planning to run constant directivity cornerhorns? Or are you going back to your original plan of using four π mains? The cornerhorns would be perfect for that room, but one...

Re: Damping H290C horn
Yes, I expect self-interference and room modes are likely the problem. I use the three π subs, which have a LAB12 woofer in them. But you can use a smaller sub, perhaps one that doesn't give as much extension, if you're worried about bothering the neig...

Re: Damping H290C horn
Thank you! I will try to damp the horns with the modelling clay. There is an insulation sheet between the high and the low section of the speaker (hanging across the brace). But it isn't high quality insulation, however thick enough. If the quality o...

Re: Damping H290C horn
Bill Epstein is a big fan of using rope caulk to surround the horn. Some people do that to other horns too, and it sure doesn't hurt anything. If you don't have rope caulk, use modeling clay. Rope caulk is pretty similar stuff. As for the bass, did...
