Nice.  I have a pair of Umax 15's, sealed 3.0 cuft flat pack, Inuke 3000dsp.

 

What box will you be using, and what amp?

 

I am installing the Umax 18's in a pair of large ported cabinets and each will have its own Dayton SA1000 Amp and external Velodyne SMS-1 DSP units.

 

The sealed boxes, available as flat packs, are a good deal. I imagine your pair of 15's do a great job.

Here's a couple of ideas. In both cases the response of a Klipschorn with K33 is in gray.

Very interested in the university classic design. Shame some discussions of the correct cabinet geometry ( particularly the throat ) went awry :(

There is no need to get the dimensions exact down to the last 1/64". Even at 1 kHz, the wavelength is still over a foot. So as long as dimensional errors are kept to fractions of an inch (even fairly large fractions of an inch), everything will be OK.

Yeah , probably just made some sort of wrong headed assumption that if a design becomes revered , there must be some sort of black magic in the finer constructional details :D
Chances are ill either make k15's again cos i liked em , or Claude's quarter pie as its so straightforward to build.

I just picked up this pair of oak KLF-20 for $300. Pretty happy with them. They sound great but there are substantial scratches, dings and small tears in the grill cloth. Overall for the price I can't complain.

Tim....you seem to find a lot of good deals....congrats.

Thank you. I was actually out looking at condos most of the afternoon. First thing i saw when I opened FB this afternoon was this pair twenty minutes up the road from me. I figured after 8 hours of listing them, they would have been gone. Still available so I jumped on them. Guy is moving to Hawaii and is trying to take as little as possible with him

It is a PVC coated mesh fabric from Rosebrand. Made to be outdoors and acoustically transparent. We were even able to print it to the color they wanted.

Also comes in very wide goods. We were able to do this 10 ft wide without a middle seam. Hard to tell but it is actually convex.

Nothing spectacular but was time to try out a Mini DSP and some spade connectors arrived as well.   Good thing is, the mini is well, mini, so out to the shop and the wife never notices the small items.  LOL

Congrats. I have often wondered about the Focus. And now the prices have come down enough that they are relatively inexpensive. Which version did you get?

Thanks brotha.   I got the original Focus.  These are totally different animals then klipsch. Soft, sweet top end, massive bass, killer imaging and midrange.   They are volume limited even with far more power on top then they can handle.   This is good for me as it will encourage me, to listen at lower volumes as they sound great at that level.   I also got the "step one" module that was optional for these speakers.  Essentially, it's a dedicated preamp for the bass output that supposedly does some background voodoo on the bass as well to clean it up even more.
