mmm. i just got my horns installed. maybe ill come around to taking pics.
found myself image dynamics cd ultras full bodies with drivers for 175 shipped. Is it just me, or does the plastic bodies smell really bad?
ive spent...40 minutes of tuning while driving. and ive gotten them to sound really nice for a few songs.. and other songs sound soooo bad and sharp
To -10db thatís being the only eq on horns for setting gain. than ajust gain down until sounding smoother and listenable
Than eq down other problem areas. Donít boost in eq at least until you know whatís actually going on.. even than...mooot
You definitely overgained. You want the gain to sound like the horns arenít quite loud enough barely , than fix the midrange and midbass by cutting peaks and should come together.
Read Ericís tuning horns thread and pay attention to the details of what he says to do. All the little steps matter a lot with horns
And I love the smell of the mold release and urethane. Especially on a hot day :-) smells like pen ink (yummy)
ALSo pull the diaphragm out of the motor (carefully) gently pull on the voice coil as you pinch the voice coil and see if the glue has separated from the dome.
Inspect for dents in dome from abusive crossover points from hitting phase plug or debris in throat. Clean the voice coil gap with masking tape and business card and reassemble if all looks good.
Eric can help you or direct you on a new diaphragm if you need one.
