FR Back Loaded Horn DIY - advice required.


Recommended Posts

So I want to build my first Full Range BLH floor standing speakers.

 

Enclosure of choice is the Tang Band SUG-19-8" FR

But.... I have the W8-1808 drivers on hand & not the recommended BLH W8-1772 drivers. I didn't particularly want to purchase 1772's when i already have 1808's. 

Obviously the enclosure is tuned to the recommended 1772's, so if i did decide to use the 1808 drivers in this enclosure, what possible problems may/will occur with sound quality, by using the 1808 driver with a Qts .44, Vas 3.11. Vs 1772 driver with Qts of .27, Vas 3.34 ? Would you expect a large difference in sound quality performance?

or @atilsley

@Mushroom01 sorry i cant help with any solid tech advice, presumably the different driver will make a difference, but i cant imagine it would be massive?? the 1808 has all good reviews on parts express, same as the 1772, excellent choice of driver though, i have the 1772's in my similarly designed cabinets and love them

Thanks Upfront for trying to keep this alive, but i've given up on waiting for assistance & i'm now building a bass reflex cab for this driver for now. 

Cheers!

Surprised that Linc had not suggested a swap, but not sure if that would work.

Haha! We all know I'm a try it and see type of guy.

As I have the 1772's suitable for horns, 1808's suitable for open baffle?
