    jabo horns have landed

    So the Jabo horns arrived in a large box this morning from Germany. Err they are quite big, methinks 'er indoors is going to notice them immediately. Will need a new strategy to introduce them into the system. 400Hz horn 535mm at the mouth and 353mm long. Thats all folks, they are now tucked away until I can scrape the dosh together to buy the compression drivers. Fender Strat USA anybody, no? oh well ebay it is. DSC00620.jpg

    OOooh. You need to get the drivers bought quick smart and get them over here at xmouse
    Seriously, i'm very interested on how you get on with this lot. If it's successful I may well pick your mind and follow a similar route.....

    no chance of me bringing them over at christmas, bonnie doesn't know about them yet, have to pick my moment when I've earned some brownie points. maybe Scalford if I make it or have a room allocated. lots of ifs at the mo.

    Haha! Nice one Paul. Looking forward to reading about your escapades with these. For sure you;re doing the right things by going to compression drivers!

    undecided as yet, have been leaning toward the BMS coaxial drivers as used by BD Design in the Orphean, but not the so called modified ones they sell. I am more interested in how they sound to my ears rather than how they measure. I have been reading Romy the cats macondo thread, very interesting and given me some ideas but I won't be approaching it in such a technical way, just my usual haphazard way with lucky results. Yesterday I bypassed the digital crossover with the 8" mid driver and let it run wild, it sounds much better that way and there don't seem to be any integration problems with the woofers or tractrix horn. The 8" drivers will be stepping down and the Jabo horns will be taking their place on the baffle when I get the drivers.

    It's been a while since I last read it but the Ariel thread on diy audio is also interesting and similar to what you're doing.

    It's actually very similar. Altec 288 on 425hz le cleach horns with 2 parallel 12" wooded open baffle. The designer is quite renowned.

    Beyond the Ariel thread. I think I'm getting early dementia sometimes.

    compression drivers arrived yesterday, so bolted one to a horn, modded the wiring, added a 3.3uf cap in line with the hf horn and placed the horn on the table in front of the baffle.Not ideal but until I mount the horns where the 8" drivers are now and find a new position for them, that will have to do for a quick listen. Well sounds surprisingly good, everything seems to blend nicely, nothing stands out as not sounding right. Even with only one horn and the 8" on the other channel covering the same frequencies it works. Can now turn the wick up way more than before without distortion, I guess, so the bass is better. Next move is to bond some ply to the back of the horn so I can mount it on my baffle.DSC00643.jpg
