Performance

The performance data published below was taken from the 1198 speaker which includes the full ES-curvature around the baffle edges.  Otherwise the 1323 waveguide is identical. 

Since the 1323 waveguide is baffle mounted, it is strongly suggested that large baffle round-over features be implemented to retain similar performance as published below.  The 1198 speaker uses the same SB Acoustics TW29BN-8 tweeter. 

Raw frequency response shown below (no crossover):

Below is the suggested crossover schematic as a starting point.  A flat response is achieved with a single 4.7uF capacitor.  A Lpad circuit can be used to attenuate to the correct level. 

The simple crossover achieves the frequency response shown below.

Distortion is kept to a minimum due to the aid of the waveguide, despite the low 1.5kHz crossover point.  Shown below is the 1198 harmonic distortion at 95dB SPL at 1 meter distance. 

The frequency response below is the 1198 frequency response after crossover development with the Purifi PTT6.5 woofer.

  • Allows precision CNC machining from solid hardwood (ie. walnut) 
  • Suggest Watco Danish Oil  (See Example Video HERE
  • ES curvature for optimum sound quality (minus wrap-around at horn mouth)
  • Clearance for tweeter surround (assumes use of SB Acoustics TW29BN-B

  • Locating pins for tweeter (keeps tweeter centered) 

  • 2kHz Low Frequency Cutoff (Fc) 
  • Allows for 1.5kHz crossover Point by reducing distortion at crossover region 
  • 180mm W x 115mm H x 40mm" D
