Bass performance Betsy with Lii Audio Fast 12
10/25/22 at 15:45:03
 
Hi there,
Due to this great forum and of course Decware I stumbled over the Betsy Open Baffle design. Intrigued by the performance / price ratio I ordered a pair of Lii Audio Fast 12 drivers (the Fast 15 where not available at the time I ordered mine in Europe/Germany).

I hooked only the drivers up to my amp and the bass was quite low. But the 3dness was so great!!

As I will do the baffles in the second week of November here my question: Will the bass performance improve when adding them into the baffle?

As Steve wrote on the product page on the Betsy's that the bass will come from the coupling to the floor my second question: Will the adding of ISO Acoustic Gaia be counterproductive with respect to the bass performance?

PS: I will add them into a 1,2 inch thick hard wood baffle.

Best, Steffen Smiley

Hi Steffen,

Mounting the drivers in baffles will definitely increase the bass output.
The combination of the baffle surface and coupling to the floor will make a BIG difference.

As to the addition of the ISO Acoustic Gaias, I can't address that.
Some of my customers use cones, spikes, etc. under their baffles and are happy with the results.

Your mileage may vary ..... so please share your findings .....

Best wishes,
Randy

Hi Randy,
great news! Thanks a lot. So now I just need some faith in my project :-D Anyhow - if you would deliver your Betsy's to Germany I would instantly bought one.

I will definitely keep you informed about the project and even more important what I think about the sound they will create.

And I love the fact that the community here is very open! Such a great thing! It's about music and even more important: About people sharing one hobby!

Best and enjoy your day!
Steffen
