  1. I think this is same driver, renamed. http://www.sbaudience.com/index.php/products/subwoofers/rosso-18sw1000d/ Wagner sell it if you are interested. It's listed as in stock. https://www.wagneronline.com.au/new-sb-2019/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/rosso-18sw1000d-89886/1002105/pd/
  2. Ha....Lego solves everything! I'm just rock'n out to my new speakers.
  3. Wow! jazzman53, this really is next level DIY, High end craftsmanship here... Congratulations on this outstanding project, they look fantastic! I really admire your patience & precision with your work. Thank you for sharing , i'll be watching closely.
  4. FWIW, This is taken from the "PK" driver, not the "K". Measurements taken using the H250, 90 x 90 Constant directivity. http://www.sbaudience.com/index.php/products/horns/horn-h250/

  7. Have you asked how long it will take to get? I think the whole SB Audience range is on back order?
  8. Absolutely! .....Also with the crappy Aussie dollar at 0.60, it makes this range of drivers very attractive when buying in Aus! It's a beast of a pro driver...... 120L, box tuned to 32Hz with 2 x 4" ports is a great result! only at half Xmax with 300 watts! You may want 3 x 4" ports for above 300 watts. IMO, good price in Aus when you compare to buying other drivers from overseas with similar specs!

  10. No, I don't have the room for them. I aready have a BFM Table Tuba front loaded horn and another 12" sub for now. If i was to build one myself i'd try the SBAudience driver. But that's just me, you pick what driver you think is best for your design and budget. Slot port is fine, same result as tube. My 12" is slot ported. Saves buying port tube or down-pipe!
  11. If you build anymore VBSS, maybe explore the SBAudience Bianco Driver! http://www.sbaudience.com/index.php/products/subwoofers/bianco-18sw450/ https://www.wagneronline.com.au/sb-audience-bianco-18-subwoofer-450w/sb-audience-range/sb-acoustics/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/bianco-18sw450-89880/1002173/pd/ https://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/295-036-dayton-audio-pa460-8-specifications-46885.pdf Yes, Bianco has higher qts & only slightly higher vas. But has almost twice the Xmax of the Dayton driver, lower FS, Higher sensitivity and $100 per driver cheaper than the Dayton when purchased locally. I modeled these 2 drivers and the Bianco performed better than the Dayton in 177L and same port tune options as the V.B.S.S enclosure. Also, the Dayton run out of Xmax at 200w, where the Bianco handled 400w and still under Xmax. EQ boosting the low end will be safer with this driver! I'd probably add another 4" port to the Bianco for a total of 3x4" ports. It moves more air and will suffer port compression problems when tuned 15-20hz.
  12. The Dayton driver is cheap in US, but not really cheap in Aus. This got me thinking..........Is there another cheaper, improved driver performance option for the V.B.S.S 177L enclosure? I think i may have found one! http://www.sbaudience.com/index.php/products/subwoofers/bianco-18sw450/ https://www.wagneronline.com.au/sb-audience-bianco-18-subwoofer-450w/sb-audience-range/sb-acoustics/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/bianco-18sw450-89880/1002173/pd/ https://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/295-036-dayton-audio-pa460-8-specifications-46885.pdf Yes, Bianco has higher qts & only slightly higher vas.

  13. Here's a few more to look at...... http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/monitors.html http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/woodfox-bookshelf.html
  14. Not really, just depends on how many watts you feed it! I'd rather a large driver doing the job easily, than a smaller driver working hard at high Xmax & high distortion. On the other hand, 2 smaller separate subs like 2 x 12" or 15" is better than one 18" when placed in separate corners of your room. More costly too. So many options, so many choices. Good Luck!
  15. Are they bookshelf rear, floor standing for front mains ? Reference model will be helpful. Also do you have a budget for your build? Maximum size sub enclosure you can have in your room?
  16. Yes..... B&C, Peavey & Lavoce to name a few others. I too thought .5 maybe a little low for OB purpose. But then you have to wonder why a quality manufacturer would make such a product for OB use. Agree .7 and above is likely to be more suitable for OB application, such as the Eminence designed driver on offer from Pure Audio Project. http://www.pureaudioproject.com/product/15inch-open-baffle-bass-woofers/
  17. You may want to tell us a bit more info, such as: Room size 4x6m, 10x14m and ceiling height. will be used for movies, music, or both? what speakers will you be using with the sub? stand mounts, book shelf, small or large floor standing? surround speaker system only? People will be more inclined to help you with some solid info, regards your room & current system to be used with the sub.
  18. I was browsing the SB Acoustics updated web site today, to which I found a link to "SB Audience" range of new pro drivers and horns. http://www.sbaudience.com/ I thought i'd had my head in the sand. I'd never come across this link or this range of drivers before! A quick search with the search bar on Stereonet has revealed no discussions/chat that i could find, so i'm guessing a few other members are not aware? Anyway, for those who aren't aware........ 2 open baffle drivers on offer, 12 & 15". http://www.sbaudience.com/index.php/products/various-drivers/bianco-15ob350/ Heaps of good divers to pick from, right up to 2 large subwoofer offerings 21". Wagner has them for sale. https://www.wagneronline.com.au/sb-audience-range/sb-acoustics/speaker-drivers/audio-speakers-pa/pl/ I'm already thinking about a new Open Baffle, DIY project with 2 x 15" BIANCO-15OB350 per side, with the new SB Acoustics 8" Full Range, or Tang Band 8" FR. Anyway, happy viewing! Should give some other fellow DIYers some new project ideas. Jason
  19. Ahh.......Yes, like the new Tang Band Coaxial 6" & 8" drivers! http://www.tb-speaker.com/products/w8-2314#tab-408
  20. I found this link below quite interesting! https://www.transcendentsound.com/full-range-single-driver.html Especially with regards to the comments about the speaker grill cover (ugly as a hat full of bum holes IMHO!) acting as a "diffuser and break up high frequency beaming". I would've thought the very poor & limited grill open-area (looks to be approx 50%) would cause more problems than benefits! I guess it's worth trying different grill materials with varying open-area, to customize the sound to your liking. It just needs to look much more attractive to me than the above pebble sieve.
  21. Certainly some very complex & interesting designs to be seen that's for sure!
