Use it instead of wood filler ... it's faster, smoother, can be sanded out if you screw it up and re-done. Then my search led me to the Fostex website ... studying the response curves of their drivers, their excellent assortment of speaker plans etc. Happy listening! You all are pros. To get a smooth furniture finish the varnished cabinet must sit for 72 hours, after which I will lightly sand it with #220 paper and apply one final coat. The discoloration is a 50/50 mix of carpenters glue and water which I painted on to reduce the edges' inclination to adsorb the paint, which I will spray on tomorrow. I countersunk and tapped before screwing the panels together, gluing the joints when I was happy with the fit up. cone mod Much has been said in the past about adding foam between the wizzer and the main cone.....nothing new here..... except I didn't use foam. If memory serves me, they are superior to the Diatones I built by a fair margin, although both speakers shared many of the same advantages, the pipes being much better in the bass and throwing a much larger stage. It's best to drill out the screw holes in the base to a diameter slightly larger than the screw, so the thread engages only the cabinet bottom and fits loosely in the base itself. OK, so I'm bumming around the NY Noise show for 2002, nothing to show this year so I'm just another spectator. Also, the primer will not level, so there will be massive brush marks in the dried primer. I found the design in February of 2002 while co-oping in California, but I didn't have time to build them until I was back home in Massachusetts. I figure they may have some clue about this that I don't have. I bought a 5lb bag of Acousta Stuf from Parts Express, as well as some gold binding posts. This page consists of a description of my Voight Pipes. The stuff is dusty, chips, cracks, and absorbs water. Draw a line 1" up from the bottom on each panel for alignment of the baffle. 8.5 Combinations It is possible to combine various pipe geometries. I did not change anything in 4 weeks. There is a "Rightness" about the seamlessness of the sound. The RS28A-4 1-1/8″ Aluminum Dome Tweeters are mounted in 4” PVC tubes that reduce down to a 2” curved pipe. Regardless, they appear to be very sensitive to twaeks so you should be able to find a happy place for your own preferences. This is the Voight-Pipe Resource Page. Nothing at all in the lower section. I may try making one three-sided with all sides being triangular (different-sized triangles?). Finally, put a 3/4" round-over on the outside bottom edge. Fill, sand, spray, repeat. Nice, no? This is important! It could be done with a simple handsaw, a scrollsaw for the cutouts, and a drill. The best paint I have found for speaker cabinets is Rustoleum Satin Black. Saw the sides out, leaving enough material for finishing. Repeat until there are no more imperfections, using 220 grit paper. This tool ROCKS. Gio Post subject: Re: PVC Pipe Speaker Project with HiVi B3N / T20-8. I created it because I didn't want information about this speaker design to be lost. Frustrated by that I still wanted to try these little 5-1/2 inchers when my eyes fell on the Voigt Pipes in a farther corner of my shop waiting a better day. amp and a friend commenting that now I've built an amp maybe I should build some speakers. It's hard to tell from this picture, but the back of the base is only 1/2" behind the back of the enclosure. In all my work area was about 5'x8' so the notion of saw horses, dust free paint shops, and bunches of clamps etc. Put a couple of light coats on the raw edges of the panels. This design gets the benefits of a spherical design, but also adds a tapered tube at the back to eliminate all internal resonances. Veneer it, paint it, whatever. They do have awesome low frequency characteristic that I hoped the Voigt pipe would bring out. Currently I run my recently-built single ended triode amps (Svetlana 811-10) with my Voigt Pipes and really deem myself lucky to have arrived at a really good sounding system so easily. The baffle and speaker is mounted with drywall screws and sealed with latex caulk, the household kind. long and the width of the box) and just using a staple gun to secure it. amp, a speaker design that seemed like I could fit them into my living room without damaging the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) too much. Both sets were driven by the same amp using its A/B switches. Usually TQWT produces excesive midrange output. The Voigt pipes stand 72" tall and use Fostex FE166E drivers. I was pleased. For ordinary stereo, they have the best imaging that I've ever heard. Cut each sliced piece 8-3/4" or a little less long. The port then needs a second "parasitic" (pipe type) resonance at the second harmonics of the line resonance. Only the upper section of the pipe above the driver, is lightly filled with acoustic damping whilst the area directly behind the driver is lined with 3/8" wool felt. Finally the 6.5" Fostex FE166E drivers arrived, so I can do the driver cutouts next week. TQWT and QWT stands for (tappered) quarter wave tube and are also refered as Voight Pipes. Cut off the tops, leaving a little material for finishing. They are adequate to provide pressure to the joint while the glue sets, but that's all. Put a zobel (6.8uF cap in series with 8ohm resistor) in parallel with the driver. At 35 watts, 70 max, they are loud enough, (more then 100 decibels,) for a typical room. Surplus Electronic Parts, Tubes, Equipment, Technical Manuals Misc. In the far field, frequencies below 800hz are reduced by several db's. I put a few nails inside the pipe to hold the stuffing in there. Radio Shack SPECIFICATIONS for 5-1/4" HiFi Auto Speaker Cat. To damp the cabinet, all internal surfaces are covered with vinyl tile glued down with vinyl mastic. The bottom plate butts against the four previous panels. The panels are glued and screwed with yellow PVA glue and 1 1/4" coarse-thread drywall screws. My homage to Gilbert A. Briggs' SFB OB-09, open baffle construction, JA8008/TW034 and Eminence Deltalite II 2515, 15" bass driver OB … The stuff is brittle, expensive, and itchy. It is therefore possible to use physically small speakers. I think that this produces the best compromise between increased horn loading at f3 and the straightest curve between F1 and F5. I drew that curve by hand on one baffle and copied over to the other baffle. Take about a foot of 2" by 3" lumber and slice it in two pieces lengthwise but at an 7 degree angle. Stuffing: As you might have guessed, I used more than the standard amount of stuffing. It is overly detailed for anyone even modestly familiar with speaker building, but someone might benefit for the details. But it's one of the easiest speakers to build if built full length like this. Start with a rectangular piece of your wood 8-3/4" wide and at least 76" long, better longer if the cut should go wrong. Cutting Driver Holes Too Wide ... Well ... so much for precision (see section above). Stand the side panels up on the baffle. I used some sophisticated tools cause I have them, but all the cutting for this project can be done with an inexpensive circular saw ($40 at Home Depot). This is of course true because I used the RS drivers that have pressed steel bodies. Designed specifically for the Radio Shack 40-1354a (unfortunately out of print) wide-range driver, it should accept any 5 1/4" driver with a fs of 50-60 and moderate Qts (0.3 - 0.5). A little easier to construct and more stable too. I went to Home Depot and got a very nice sheet of 3/4" Birch Hardwood plywood for $42. Just make sure it is wood primer. If you like an open, crystal clear sharp high end, with a mid that's emotional but not overbearing then these speakers are for you. Pipe Inner Diameter (inch) This is the inner diameter of each tuning port. At first, I stripped the wood using a handheld circular saw. Hold it there and let your partner draw a line along the steel wire. Voigt pipes were a creation of P.G.A.H. It's a trade secret and I'll call it's the Half Assed Touch of Magic (HATM) that must make these speakers sound so good to me. It is a 8" high efficiency driver of 94dB with an Fr of 55Hz and is an 7.6 Ohm unit and is good up to 16Khz. DTQWT mkII: 3-way double tapered quarter-wave design, JA8008+TW034/waveguide + 2 x Eminence Deltalite II 2510. When I sealed the boxes for the first time, many screws did not go in straight and occasionally popped out on the surface of the pipes. One completed enclosure minus its base, standing beside a Magepan 1.6QR for size comparison. Then you rip the boards to the desired width. … Fit the case, drill, countersink, screw, unscrew, glue, screw instead of fussing with a thousand clamps. A Tapered Quarter Wave Pipe (or sometimes Tube - hence TQWT). I heard details in music I had never heard before. It's behavior is a complex physics of 1/4 wave helmholtz resonator, bass reflex loading and horn loading. I think any glossy cardboard could be used instead.This worked perfectly. The midrange can be tuned somewhat by experimenting with additional damping directly behind the driver. Hear the brilliant midrange that makes instruments like the piano come alive or the sound of the strings being strummed on a classical guitar. SHOW. It now appears that this unit is no longer available..I bought mine almost a year ago(1999) and didn't get around to using it until now....which is Sept.2000...but I have new spare ones available if anyone is interested. I wanted the driver to have a response difference between its resonance frequency (Fo) and its midrange sensitivity to be NO MORE than 10db. An example of a MTM bookshelf speaker speaker design appears below from Zalytron. Pick one panel and mark the cut line on the opposite side. Screws into the edge of MDF provide no real mechanical strength. When I found the design of the Voigt Pipe at the site of the Lowther Club of Norway I was taken by the simplicity of it and the fact that it uses a single driver, much like a point source that would mirror the microphone that originally recorded the music of acoustical instruments. After Christmas we set up a shoot out between the speaker pairs, the Voigt Pipes and the Hawaii 5.0 boxes. The single biggest mistake I made was to try to apply primer with a brush. They are not full range drivers and I have no idea what their Qts is. This is a very easy enclosure to build. It's very easy! Check revisited edition of TQWT on Lowther Holland page, where another driver is added to cure uneven response of a single driver TQWT. I didn't know how I would adapt to the steep price for Lowther drivers but went ahead anyway and build the Voigt Pipe cabinets thinking I might try some other full-range 8" drivers meanwhile. Lets face it, sound does not like flat angular surfaces and the curve has made a real big difference to both the bass quality and also to the mid range and imaging too. Drill and set the first screw at the bottom and the last screw at the top. Then after everything is finalized I will use a direct solder connection to the driver terminals. Back in the '30's that pioneer of hi-fi Mr P.Voigt designed the Voigt Pipe. from the Lowther Club of Norway: (partial quote). I shared my toils with friends who are still laughing at me not using a circle cutter for my router and cutting the hole a little bit at a time working my way through the material. Build 'em.......... you'll love 'em........... My thanks to Jonathan Weiss for the great suggestions and my great friend Ron VanTongeren, who had all the neato tools (rotozip, nail gun, monster clamps) to make assembly a 1 hour operation, as opposed to 10 hour ordeal. I ended up taking out all the recommend stuffing and leaving only a small piece of polyester (blanket or chair batting) directly behind the driver (about ? A closer view of the driver mounted on its satin black baffle,and you can also see the subtle grain of the natural birch finish. Normally this (2nd harmonic) resonance is out of phase with the driver's front radiation and hence creates a cancellation, the source of the deepest and lowest notch. You want to end up with the 8-3/4" by 71" triangle but cut the short rectangular crosscut after the diagonal cut is satisfactory. Installing the base. It's the mouth of a horn, so this 45 degree reflector really does make sense. TQWT's TL behavior offers a nice acoustic load for the driver over most of it's operating range and in addition the bass reflex reinforcement can be tuned pretty low so that a pretty deep and tight bass can result. Initially I thought that it would be smart to be able to take the super tweeter out of the circuit so I got a speaker cup for bi-wiring. I magnetically shielded the drivers to prevent interference on my television screen. Fix the speaker well into its hole now and then turn the pressure screw against the magnet with some feeling and judgment. I needed some speaker stands for my home studio recently, but didn't want to pay retail for them. Spread it with a finger, making sure the entire edge is wet. The triangular nature of the Voigt pipe causes its resonant frequencies to be spread across the midrange bands, and the length of the pipe accentuates the bass frequencies very well. I ended up having to bend one side of the hurricane nut up 90 degrees to get the driver into the hole. Since the high frequencies will have to be rolled off to avoid localization such speakers can be built with a single driver. One of the rear panels went on a bit off center ... leaving a ridge on one side and a gap on the other. Important note: The center of gravity for these enclosures is NOT at the front-back center of the enclosure; it's much closer to the front. After investing in a driver I didn't want to end up with speakers that put my cordless phone and television on the fritz. I need only 1 to 2 watt for loud listening levels on classical music. I used just chipboard again but kept very close to the design given in the VALVE e-zine. They can be built of Baltic birch veneer plywood with mdf trim, as shown here, for less than $250. Each enclosure receives three coats of fast drying semi gloss polyurethane varnish from a spray can. Each speaker base is a 14X14 piece of 3/4" mdf. Both will be painted satin black for contrast with the natural wood. Common - forget about the great sound that you have and feel the music with the Pipes and get off the boring treadmill that you are on in the ever upgrading path in the hope of getting better sound and never being satisfied. These lines are critical -- get them right. A good friend of mine had me go demo a pair of Von Schweikert speakers which had a rear firing tweeter. Well, before embarking on this project I hit the internet, and found a wealth of information it would be silly of me to repeat here. The bottom edge of the rectangle farthest away from the driver is cut away in a gentle sloping curve tangential to the far vertical and to the bottom edge of the rectangle. Make the driver cutout . After you have cut one, you just lay it over the other and cut the bottom of the second triangular board to produce two identical sides. Type Quantity Tuning Frequency (Hz) This is the tuning frequency of the box - Fb. The entire pipe can also be seen as a tapered transmission line in inverted form, that is, widening rather than narrowing from top to bottom. The Audax HT210A2 full range drive unit is a real bargain.....i.e., cheapie! Make a subwoofer enclosure plan. Some calculations for the center channel were inaccurate. Here you'll find an explanation about the Voight-Pipe's design (also called a TQWT or Tapered Quarter Wavelength Tube design). (Unfortunately, this approach would prevent me from buying rear-projection televisions.) I put screws on 6" centers. That includes a pressure screw from the rear of the cabinet against the backside of the driver magnet. Great Products, Low Prices. Use Lowther drivers PM 6A, PM6C, PM7A. I will build the next ones for a friend of 3/4" Baltic birch ply. It's surprisingly easy to get two identical triangles from one board. I thought that might help to fill in the void I sometimes sense in the middle of a stereo pair too far apart. They seem to indicate a 14 liter ( .5 cu ft) box tuned to about 58 Hz. Same goes for finding the holes for the drivers after you are done veneering. System response will be primarily determined by the respective line-length and vent resonant frequencies; the driver position being used to create destructive interference of the higher frequency stuff we don't want coming out the vent (that is, it shouldn't be at an even fraction of the acoustic length of the pipe). The concept is an economical speaker based on a waveguide and efficient pro midbass. Ok, so you can get an idea of where to start with the stuffing....this is what I have done - but experiment yourself - there are no absolutes in this game and some may prefer the stuffing in the lower part of the line - indeed as one would find in a folder pipe. Now the same procedure at the other end. In hind sight I would have been better served to learn on something other than Lacewood. I'm still inconclusive about the center channel. Set the tiles and let the whole thing set overnight. Generally drivers somewhat between the extremes (around 0.4 Qt) seem to be ideal for these. This is where not finally fixing the base piece into position is a great benefit for those wanting to experiment with different terminations. This seemed to take care of the BSC, brightness, and all the other offenses that the Fostex drivers are accused of having. A speaking tube in use on a United States Navy Landing Craft Utility (2005) A speaking tube or voicepipe is a device based on two cones connected by an air pipe through which speech can be transmitted over an extended distance. The materials used in the project were chosen for practical purposes. First, I took some SPL measurements of the bare pipe. Screw the cabinet together. I want to get a subwoofer so I can high-pass filter the Voigt pipes around 60Hz. This is what its about....fun! One of the vertical sides coincides with the vertical edge of the Voigt pipe. Make your own Subwoofer Box Design. One solution is to place the speakers flush against the back wall. Glue in the port piece. Finally, in the upstairs listening room connected to the Bottlehead Paramours. It has become a useful learning experience for me to see and hearthe latest loudspeakers, that aspire to the absolute best in sound performance.For this I drive to Las Vegas with my spouse for the International Consumer Electronics Show and T.H.E. Clamp or nail the triangles together like a sandwich and plane or sand the triangles together so they end up having exact the same dimensions when taken apart again. It should be vertical to the front panel and coincide with the speaker axis. Place the port block between the sides and clamp the sides with a bar clamp. Surround loudspeaker. Posted: 21 Aug 2009 2:27 am . LESSON LEARNED ... full scale practice on cheaper veneer. There are four traditional pipes used for both my front and surround speakers, and a modified pipe for my center channel. The TQWT therefore adapts well to fullrange or midbass drivers, which don't have very large excursion. There are schematics for the speaker housing construction. If you have difficulty with that shape take a piece of spring steel wire and bend it in a curve that touches the sides of the rectangle in a gentle slope almost coinciding with the sides near the corners. They correspond to impedance curve peaks which can be easily seen on a plot. After a minute or two to dry you can putty knife off the excess when it's begun to turn plastic and you're as clean as a whistle. Once I was satisfied with the sound, I screwed the speakers shut. Well rather than bounce the sound at 45 degrees out into the room - it seemed like the logical progression to smooth this out and give a better transition into the room by means of a curved reflector. TC120TD5+two7W4411 MTM vented.pdf I may add bases to the bottom, as they tend to be a bit wobbly. The Voigt pipe is a type of loudspeaker enclosure that embodies a combination of transmission line, ported enclosure and horn characteristics. Once the back and sides are screwed together, you can remove all of the clamps. I have a VERY small work area and even smaller tool storage ability. Apply the finish of your choice. By tapering the pipe as shown, the resonances will spread over a wide range of frequencies, thereby eliminating the 'one-bass-note samba' that can sometimes be heard in poorly designed reflex and TL enclosures. The internal dimensions are determined so that the throat area is equal to the driver Sd and the mouth area equal to 4 times Sd. Fear not ... BONDO saved the day. half the height of the one here. I decided on two thicknesses of MDF, cut as per the drawing. The Copper Tones Speaker A CSS FR125 Full Range Driver in a ML TL Enclosure The BSC is Built into the Base Built by Paul Kittinger. They sound good ... to me. 13. The speakers and the design began with the information found athttp://www.pi.algeriaaudio.com/. Along came summer 1999 and time passed with other predilections. Once you experience the full range driver you will never go back to crossovers and multi-way speakers. I have not found a good way to do it until today. They are good for fairly large rooms where you can spread them 8 to 10 foot apart and 3 foot away from the wall or more. Sorry, not for me. The RS drivers put out a lot. The TQWT is really good at a few things. Glue that and center it onto the rear of the speaker magnet. The stuffing will, however, reduce the sensitivity of the speaker, but compromises must be made, yes? I don't really think there is much to it and it would probably not sound much different with just a plain rectangle or whatever design you like. A loudspeaker that stands head and shoulders above all others. It is beveled toward the inside because sound doesn't like sharp edges. Other drivers have been inferior to the FE207. I glued generous amounts of Elmer's wood glue to both sides of the joint, looking for glue oozing out the sides of the box. It is highly regarded by some speaker designers, as evidenced by established manufacturers such as Castle. Other than the peaks on the spikes are rounded over, the correspondence is almost exact. Enclosure Design Procedure; Resources; Quarter-wave transmission line speakers employ enclosures that are tuned to provide low-frequency extension for the speaker driver. But somewhat the sound stage was attached to the speakers or not really free of it. You may view my design notes here: (Although, they are not neat). To find the holes for the machine screws you may want to make a template of the layout before you veneer so you can use a hand drill to re-drill through the veneer. The high frequency extension was a little weak, but thats what my plasma tweeters are for. Can you post a schematic of the cross-over? Likewise, those who plan to prefer to listen at painful levels may wish to look elsewhere. The round speaker mounting baffle will be bolted on to enable me to substitute different size drivers by changing to a different baffle. Also, packing density is not critical, within reason. 12" x 12" vinyl floor tiles. It will be used for the port block, and as a spacer during gluing. I don't think I'll low-pass filter the Voigt pipes, they cut off pretty naturally around 3kHz with these "heavy-coned" speakers (their cones are not really heavy at all, in fact they're probably lighter than most midrange cones. The rest is easy. Ideal for tube enthusiasts or those who like their speakers with effortless oomph.
