BG Neo3 / Betsy / Eminence Alpha 15 A MK III

The MK II version was lacking in the treble region. I have added a tweeter and fidled with the crossover. The tweeter is a BG Neo-3, the midrange is a Wildburro Audio Betsy and the 2 woofers are Eminence Alpha 15A. The system is tri-amplified fully active using a Behringer DCX 2496 crossover, a Behringer… Continue reading BG Neo3 / Betsy / Eminence Alpha 15 A MK III

Betsy / Eminence Alpha 15 A

Update: These were dismantled and replaced by a completely different design. After some critical listening I decided that neither bass response nor treble was to my full satisfaction.  These are my current Open Baffle  speakers. The drivers are a Wildburro Audio Betsy and an Eminence Alpha 15 Woofer. Two bucket subs (not on the picture,… Continue reading Betsy / Eminence Alpha 15 A

Bucket Sub

I was intrigued by the bucket subs as suggested by Transcendent Sound. Here is the link: Bucket Sub Below a photo of the subs on my workbench. The woofers are being driven by a Behringer iNuke 3000 DSP. The amp is cheap and has a lot of power and is capable to push the drivers to their… Continue reading Bucket Sub

Cabinet re-build of my Jordan JX92S / E100 VTL

Since I still like the sound of the Jordan VTL speakers and listen to them literally every day, I decided recently to get rid of the ugly and unfinished MDF cabinets. Inspired by Blumenstein Audio's Orca fullrangers, I have decided to use Bamboo plywood as well. So, off I went to the next local woodshop… Continue reading Cabinet re-build of my Jordan JX92S / E100 VTL

Open Baffle Project

Update: These were dismantled and replaced by a completely different design. After some critical listening I decided that neither bass response nor treble was to my full satisfaction.  I am trying another attempt with Betsy. This time with helper woofers, a DSP acting as a crossover and equalizer and two stereo amps. I have used… Continue reading Open Baffle Project

Betsy

Update: These were dismantled and replaced by a completely different design. After some critical listening I decided that neither bass response nor treble was to my full satisfaction.  I have built the winged baffles for Betsy today. One of the drivers makes rattleing noises on some test tone frequencies. On 63hz, the noise comes from… Continue reading Betsy

Betsy has arrived

Today "Betsy" has arrived. I have imported them from the wild wild west. Wild Burro Audio Labs is the company making them and I will put them into an open baffle. The wood, actually MDF, is already waiting in the garage. I have attached the drivers to an amp and started breaking them in.

Jordan JX92S / EAD E100 in VTL enclosure

Over Christmas I have completed another project. I built a transmission line design with an EAD E100 driver. The driver and enclosure design go back to Ted Jordan. The driver used to be called JX92S. The enclosure design can be found at the Jordan website. I bought the drivers from Esoteric Audio Designs in Sweden.… Continue reading Jordan JX92S / EAD E100 in VTL enclosure
