    It's not the driver that's the issue, it's that he is missing the essential part... the passive radiator assembly.

    i'm aware of that, but he can still build a sealed enclosure with the proper internal volume (cu.ft) for the driver just as long he's within spec of what the driver requires, no?

    Yes, but at that point it has nothing at all to do with the Scout cabinet.

    o.k. thank you to everybody! I like it without radiator :) maybe I'll find the good one one day...I don't think MESA give their know-how to "Copy People" and I fully understand ;-)

    thank you :)
    I just print that logo on paper and put it under a transparent tape...so it's not done yet. I think I'll print it on some foil and glue it on some plate
     
  10. It looks great - did you redo the tuning based on not having the radiator?

    thank you, no I did not make "re-tuning" I'm not able to make it yet...I'm working on combo size box and smaller 1x10" cabinet with radiators right now ;-)
     
  14. Cool remember the below and don't turn the low end or volume up too much!

    What did you use for the radiation, and how did you tune them?
