R2U system. The final stages. was created by tony.a.s.s.
Having posted a photo of the latest horn, I thought I would show the application and fixings before the system is finally painted and loaded.
The photos show the horn support and rear driver support. I made these prototypes to prove that mechanically it will work. I now have to make sure I can put everything into production now. (No glazing over)

Saul, the angles in the mid are symetrical, it's just the photo angle.
Bitzo, I haven't finalized the accurate x/o points yet but my target is around 600 hz from the mid to top. This also means that the shortest wave length from the mid is contained within the cab, so there will be breakup of smaller waves.
The whole system could be finished by the end of this week, and when I post the pictures, I will give a full account of the system and my thoughts on why I did things the way I have.

are we going to be fortunate enough to see a preview (picture) of this new system :) ? was reading on sp that its built just needs testing when amps have been acquired?

-edit-

have reread your last response on this thread :p guess we will have to wait until testing has been done

I am nearly there with the system. I have just finished making the x\o that divides the two halves of the compression. I have just converted it from a bunch of bits to something that resembles a crossover. One of my problems in getting the new one done is time, because I am busy with other stuff. Anyway, it won't be long. I have also only just received the balance of the chassis speakers I need for 2 stacks.
The basic system will consist of, per stack, 2 RXjnr subs 1 1x15 folded horn upper bass 1 2x12 horn mid hi cab. The horn as you will have seen is suspended in the mouth of the mid.
This primarily is a dance system, and for live work, it's possible that one of the subs will be replaced by another upper bass cab.
Without any skids on the cabs, each stack will stand, with 2 subs per stack, 94" high which puts the hf horn in a good position.
