Scaling The Imperial
06/11/10 at 08:29:18
 
On paper, I'm trying to figure out how far I can scale
the Imperial down (mainly to accomdate 8" and 4" speakers,
respectively) before losing its usable loading on the driver
installed in it....Any thoughts Embarrassed

Hiya Henry,
You could check out my 'Mr Valiant's Half Imperial', about twenty or so articles ago. There I used 4, 8" elcheapo drivers and threw in a Vifa tweeter and she developed a sound that, though no where near as deep as the full Imperial, sounded nice. So much so, I feel it would be good to launch into the 1/2 Imperial using quality materials and drivers.
There are many other articles on rescaling the Imperials in the forums. On the whole, the results where always positive, sometimes, surprisingly so.
Cheers
Gary

Can you point me in the direction of those articles, so I can read them and then rethink the range of ideas in my head Undecided
