before we start building the second skram we want to make oszillating tests with test pieces. These will be like 18mm birch, 12/15mm Banova with Epoxy(and carbon), the same with poplar and birch. we are not sure zet, how the tests will look like, but we are sure to find a way after that we will make the second skram out of the winner design and then compare it with the orig. skram. Ok, those are interesting advices, so we will try it without them first. Is it a good idea to make i.e. per side one Top with both, the AMT with the Mids, and a second cab with only the Mids (eighter with the same tuning or again as a 4 way system?) Another change in the plan is to use not the very expensive wavecore driver, but instead something like the http://www.precision-devices.com/Product-Details/PD103NR1. Would you recommend a closed box or BR Design for a tuning around 100Hz? (And could you recommend a calculation tool for designing these?) We want to use a FP10000Q for two skrams, another class A/B or D amp for the L/R mids and one for the L/R AMTs. Do you prefer a single extern dsp for all amps or the build in dsp (with much more effort)? Thanks a lot for your help, I think we are on a good way!
Hey guys, my friends and I are totally fascinated of the Skram and for now we want to build two of them. At first we'll build it with the suggestion of 18mm birch ply and after we want to do some changes for the second pair. We want to make it out of 15mm (birch ply and in the core of it one layer of poplar to make it lighter) in addition we would like to add some braces out of carbon and epoxy resin. It should be as stiff as 18mm birch ply. Do you have any concerns with this plan so far? We are not sure which kickbass we want to use. Maybe some of you have another recommendation? We are planing to build one Cubo Kick 12 per Skram with the 18sound 12ND830 and a little bigger cabinet, so it gets down to about 90hz and up to 200hz. The other consideration is to build some sealed boxes as kicks but I worry if this will be very harmonic with the Skram. But it should be the purest and punshiest kick, isn't it? There would be I guess 2 drivers per Skram (depends on the driver). What do you think? What would you do? As Mid Tops (from 200hz with a bit different AMT) there will be one Mundorf AMT (with a horn in front of it and an active cooling system) and two Wavecore WF259PA01 per side.. Mostly we are playing Techno, etc. but the system should be able to let you enjoy all kinds of music... It would be great if you guys could help us with your knowledge! Thanks a lot, Timon
