Changing the Singular Baffle (BD-Design)

by GC, Tuesday, March 15, 2005, 12:53 (4696 days ago)

Hi

I have finished the Singular cabinet and I am very pleased with how easy and fun it was to construct. However I have one question that is purely for cosmetic reasons and may affect the acoustics
Will changing the edges of the front baffle change the speakers musical performance? I was thinking of either using a router and cut the edges 45 degrees or simply rounding them off, to make the speaker look smaller.

I can imagine that it wouldn’t change the phase that much because I’m going to use a Fostex fe207e which is fairly directional, hence not a lot reflexes will change by changing the baffle. I could be wrong:-D and it would be nice to know if I’m severely handicapping the Singular construction.

Thanks for your time

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

This will not harm their performance, you can make them look smaller! :)

Ciao,

Hello Daniel

Rounding the edges will improve the sound of the Singular

Please let us know how they sound with the Fostex Fe 207 E

I am planning to use the Fe 207 to ..
Do you have pictures .. and drawings ???
