I once had pics of the k69 next to Dh1a, here is a B&c next to BMS.0c4017d9828c8a937fc78282da621e4b.jpgc2011f333543f8d94861faf3526f4f6e.jpg0865806380f458610a53f180c49d6bb6.jpg

Yes, I have been reading about your project using the BMS driver and Fusion power amp.

The design of the phase plug required a big housing, so at least it is not as heavy as the other large bodied compression drivers.

Those are on your K-402 MEH speakers, correct?  I imagine they sound really good.

Not trying to turn this into a driver size comparison thread. But for fun, here is the EV DH1A next to a Faital pro hf200.0e32fefeb0c8bfcf22438e796b783037.jpg

Are the drivers all about the same depth? I have the EV DH1As, and was wondering if others are deeper insize.

I can't compare the Evs to my BMS, but my BMS are about twice as deep as my B&Cs.

Added some decorative trim.

Are those black areas some sort of mmumps?

 

I know see the wooden trim. Is that oak?

For some reason I was under the impression that Roy had added a phase plug to the Celestion he uses. If he has while those will sound good they will not be the equal to what goes in the Jubes. I had a chance to hear 1132 drivers on 402's with original phase plugs and then then the new ones and there is pretty substantial improvement.

Comparisons help us make informed choices. Thanks for sharing your picture.

Yes, the shiny black areas are modified contours, similar to what are called mumps on other horns.

 

The wood trim is rosewood veneer. The bright flash for that picture makes the wood color appear lighter than normal.

The New Jubilee video shows an extension for the phase plug. That would be a significant improvement over the standard Celestion compression driver.

I was wondering when someone would make some mumps. Did you notice a difference with your mumps? How did you make and install them?

I have not done any test measurements yet, but they sound really good. I used some semi-rigid phenolic sheet, cut the shapes with a bandsaw and large belt sander. Heated and bent to follow the curve, then attached with adhesive and seam sealed with matching vinyl wrap. The shiny finish was temporary, I much prefer the appearance as pictured at the top of this page.
