speakerdude's DJ speakers & HT System
Last Update: April 04, 2003 at 18:56:22 IP Address: 131.156.255.251
Amplifier: 2 mackie 1400's
1 mackie 2600
1 Sansui AU-717
Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): Behringer CX3400 active crossover
Behringer Ultramizer pro DSP1400P
Speakers: 2 Eminence 18 inch kilomax subs in 9 cubic foot ported boxes. (1250 watts RMS each, F3 29Hz). I used Bass Box 5.0 to design the enclosures for these. I power them with a Mackie 2600 watt amplifier bridged to drive both of these.

2, 9.5 cubic foot boxes with Dayton 18Ē woofers (7mm Xmax, F3 of 26 Hz, 350 watts RMS), and monarch horn tweeters crossed over at 2Khz. I built these my freshman year of high school (1998) using Bass Box 5.0 and X-over 2.0 to design them. Their low-end bass response below 30Hz is about the best that I have heard out of 18Ē woofers that cost $130.00 new. The only thing I would change now is the crossover design. Now that I have access to LEAP and CALSOD, I can make much better crossovers then before. I power theses with Mackie 1400 watt amplifiers. I am selling theses to fund my new speaker project:

2 full range speakers (not complete) each with: 2 Eminence Kappa pro 15LF woofers(already have). I still need some 2Ē exit compression drivers that donít cost an arm and a leg, but still perform well. The selenium D3300Ti compression driver looks nice, but way too expensive, and Iím skeptical of how it will work with a different horn.) As of right now I am leaning toward a two way design, but three way is also tempting. Once I make a decision on what compression driver and horn to use, I will use LEAP and CALSOD to design passive crossovers for them.

Home Theater: My goal is to have a separate theater / music listening room. I built the Dayton IIIís for this room because they sound really nice, and didnít cost too much ($100.00 per speaker) My plan is to have almost all the components for a really nice home theater / listening room by the time I graduate.
