So, I just finished refinishing my 1980-82 lascalla's. After 2 gallons of Bondo and a gallon of duratec, they look great. During the restoration I found a piece of speaker surround when I removed the bottom. Even though all drivers worked well, one k43 was very deteriorated with dry rot and missing surround in places. I replaced both with crites aluminum replacements. No mods needed in these old cabs.
So, the questions are. I have 2 k43's that could be reconed and used. I also have 2 generic 12" woofers I think we're used in a car setup. These are all 4 ohm speakers, and my pioneer elite does not accept 4 ohm. So I was thinking of building a custom bin with a k43 and 12" in series per channel. Will have 4 woofers total and 8 ohms per channel. Would this be a good setup? And can I drive the k43 without a crossover? I plan on powering them on B channel, which plays the same as front left and right, but uses the unused side channels in my 7.1 system, effectivity making it a 5.1 system with 4 front speakers.
I was thinking of a compressed horn setup for the k43's and direct radiating for the 12", what design should I use for the k43's? Lascalla's bins? Jubilees? Or something different? Thanks in advance for all advice.
