I allways wanted to have a studio sound on stage. Now I have a concept in my head that should come close to achieving this goal. Since I build loudspeakers for hifi and studio applications for over 20 years I thought lets build a superior 2x10 cabinet. First we need to know why most of these 2x10 cabs with tweeters do not have a studio sound: conebreakup All of these cabs have a crossover frequency of about 3 to 4khz. Allmost all 10' woofers will have a conebreakup between 2 and 4khz. This means that the decay at that frequency is also very long. Long decay will not make your sound clear and crisp. This is not what we want. So, what do we need then. A low crossover point. And what tweeters can handle a low crossover point (say 1.5khz)? 2"drivers. Couple a good 2" driver to a 8" Tractrix horn and you'll have the tweeter for a superior 2x10cab I have done some great tests with 8" tractrix horns before, these type of horns sound very hifi. Then, we need a good 10" driver that can move some air and has low distortion. A high xmax is what we need. I found this beast http://www.oberton.com/index.php?op...e&id=180:10b200&catid=49:ferrite-loudspeakers I now have two of these at home all I can say is that they are way better then e.g. an Eminence Deltalite. When the deltalite started farting(distortion) the Oberton speaker still produced a very clear tone. I could push the Oberton much further before it started to distort. This one can move as much air as 2 "regular" 10's like the deltalite. Also, these guys don't need a huge cab to perform good. In the upcoming post I will show the cabinet design.
