Hi,

I want to rebuilt my mid/tops and will use the x15 plans, slightly different.

Can anybody tell me what insulation material and how much I should use for the x15?

Thank you

Dave

I'd say use as much wadding as possible without covering components that are likely to get hot/fire hazard.  BassBin Pro modelling software gives the best results when you specify high density wadding so i went that route.  Just ensure that the wadding doesn't obscure the ports - I think the generally accepted idea is that not obstruction is within 100mm of the port rear.

If it works, here's a piccy of the inside of mine, the wadding is the same in the top section behind the CD too.

I had to compromise as i needed a top hat on the cab but the effect it should have on the port should be minimal

Rog, why doesn't the site support smart tags, it'd make life loads easier (at least when I'm pissed anyway :D  )

What kind of coating did you use? Trimite?

And what kind of driver/horn/speaker did you use?

Nice job btw!

Thanks for the kind words, I wish I could take the credit

The cabs were built by Dom and finished by me.  I think the build piccys will be on the site soon.

Drivers are P-Audio SN15MB and 440 horn with a different horn to the plan spec.

Paint is from Aldcroft Adhesives, textured speaker paint (can't remember the code but they only do one and a stain) Comes in at about 17 for 5kg and I can thoroughly recommend it (as Dom did to me), that finish was done with a textured roller, about 3 coats on each and it's tough as old boots
