Thread: About dance stacks..

  1. #161
    Here's the case coated :

    I used 2 layers of oil-based primer so it should give a nice, durable finish.. time will tell. Maybe I'll use it with a home stereo.

    No updates?

    Nothing so far.. I've set this project aside until I get the financial stuff sorted out (sorry for the late answer but for some reason my Tapatalk cleared itself and I lost all subscriptions so I didn't get a push notification)

    Currently I'm looking at a sum of 2,5-3k (in EUR) to complete the system with hardware, drivers, amps, processing etc.

    If I was to break it down/buy them in parts : roughly 1k in hardware&drivers, about 1-1,5k in amps&processing, and 300-500e in cables and an amp rack etc.

    EDIT : plus some 50-100e in material to finish the 2nd sub.

    The old disco systems did.. I however implemented the mid box in my design.

    I get the idea of a dance stack but just like F1's version you need some proper mids and highs to deliver something approaching the HI-FI sound these systems are supposed to deliver, something like a speakerplans MT102 or MT122 would work and look right IMO and give you the 4-way setup.
    At one point I was thinking a mid/high box with horn-loaded subs but there are "better" commercial options (ie. more lightweight with better spec'd/custom drivers than off-the-shelf ones) available so it was a choice between buy or DIY (edit : I designed the system portable with possible installs in mind but it's more suited towards disco/house/techno etc, not so much live PA/bands in which the 2-way system would've exceled at as they're much simpler to scale, set up and operate)

    Anyway, sorry for not replying but I had to move from my old apartment, and due to space being limited I had to abandon the speakers there so the project is canceled for now. In the same process I also lost my studio.

    I still have my old PA (during 2010-mid 2019 I went through three different systems) and both DJ/live setups as well as records/instruments though and I'll still probably continue the mixer/crossover/amp projects and circuit designing as I have no longer access to woodworking facilities.

    EDIT : in my spare time I started designing a step sequencer/synthesizer on GroupDIY.. I also sketched a VCA compressor for it which I was planning on implementing to the crossover as it's probably closer to "true RMS" than the current one (for convenience the CV trim and feedback pots could be ganged together reverse in respect to each other or leave the feedback control inside the case as a trimmer, also to simplify it a bit the LED driver IC could be substituted with a shunting varistor/zener to ground so it acts more like a limiter at high voltages, this however could make the compression characteristics somewhat unpredictable at normal volumes due to the feedback circuitry)
