Test Fit #2!






Much better angle to work with. Also less interference with the wiring and such behind the trim piece. Next up fiberglassing it home.

You would have been better off going with the first aiming. You're going to lose a lot of detail firing across the dash like your second pics. Also, instead of beaming being located around the width of the tweeter (4khz), you're looking at beaming based on length (1740hz).

The best way to go about it is doing it vertically on-axis. You don't loose too much visibility. Fab is slightly harder though




Or if you can push the tops towards the inside of the a-pillar and pull the bottoms out like this, that would be better too.


The closer you can keep the driver to on-axis the better. They look better your way, but you'll regret the way it sounds.

knowledge: acquaintance with facts or principles, from study or investigation (science)
ignorance: willful disregard of limitations in a current practice (inverse of knowledge)
stupidity: doing same thing over again expecting different results (application of igno.)

Well painting all my trim and attempting to install it took up my whole weekend and then some. Crown molding sucks when installing an in older home!!! Nothing square about it. Also shouldn't of went out drinking saturday night... that didn't help me figure out the compound angles. Still more to go.

Well those are some good critiques regarding the placement. I do realize the planars off-axis response diminishes higher up the freq curve. These are being used as midranges, and not tweeters. I expect the crossover to be approx 700hz -> 3 or 4k. I don't know for sure what the F1 crossovers have in store for me.

I'm glad that I had them installed in the Car while I was driving around this weekend. I think I will be tipping them back a bit towards me. Maybe 1/2way between install 1 and 2.


Thanks for all the compliments.. This install is coming along nicely.

Here's are a set in my Car firing across the dash,(temp install) off axis on these are drop kick to the n$@$ flooring.... the only reason they aren't installed now is.... the left seems to be comming from in front of me, well because it was lol, his are alot more on axis than mine, I think he should do just fine, these have great response to 160 deg. iirc

True. I had these in a box for like 4yrs... just collecting dust. Then we tried them out in turbo5upra's Car and I fell in love. Awesome midranges!

Ha, always in the quest for perfection I'm creating new rings. Deal hasn't come along for the F1 tweeters I had my heart set on.. so I'm going line array style. I'm going to run a neo3PDR for a tweeter on top of the neo8PDR as a mid. More pics to come today.

Changing rings to accomodate my neo3PDR tweeters, and the neo8PDR midranges. Haven't cut the holes for the rear poles yet. Ran out of time during lunch.

Ha. Good guess. I'm actually the systems administrator for a local truss/stair/wall panel manufacture. As a fringe benefit, and being friends with foreman's I get free reign to use the shop tools for personal use. Also get materials at a discount cost. Helps to feed the addiction.

I have pretty much any tool I want available to me. Good way to spend lunch hours.

And you keep yourself thin. It's obvious you're not using your lunch breaks for their intended use.
