Dispensing with the intro, hi everyone, my latest project is a three way using a 10" PHL mid-bass, a Volt 75mm mid dome and a Seas 1" dome tweeter. The PHL will cover from ~ 70Hz up to 500Hz. The Volt goes from 500 HZ to ~ 3,500 and the Seas does the top bit. The PHL will be boxed, though @ 20 litres the volume is so small it's not really possible to fit the rest in. Perhaps handy though, as I'm thinking it's smart to make cabinets that don't need an army of muscle-men to move around. So, the idea is for the mid and tweeter to share a common mount while the 10" has a separate box and anything below that also has its own home.
Amps ... a mixture. Class D for the 10" [will this work noiselessly with my inverter?], an audio GD SA100, 2X100W for the Volts and maybe my venerable Aksa 55N+ for the tweeters.
Undecided: form of active X-over. I had been thinking of using the ESP option but I get the impression, that by the time I've bought a set of reasonable components, it won't actually be all that cheap while requiring a partial rebuild to use for anything else, so, maybe a minidsp.
As a bit of background, I've had a solar stand-alone power supply for more than twenty years. Lately it's got a bit bigger but it does set limitations on the amount of power I can splurge. In many ways it's an ultra clean supply though it does use a high speed switching inverter to give me 240 AC from 24V DC. Thus, the sine wave output is a compound of many, many small steps rather than being absolutely pure. Does this matter? Not so far.
Given I was getting ready to fight a fire last week but now it's preparation for flooding, things are a bit busy around here so the project might have to wait for a bit, though I've got the various bits together.
