Which version of the design are you using. I'm trying to locate a set of plans (like the new 18mm ones on the information page) for the version 3 horn. I've tried emailing Brad but he only did a few sketches.

Thanks

i'm using Peter Sylvesters mk 2 designs with 18mm marine ply, have not looked into the mk3 designs, my labs however have turned into the mk4 version, as i have made some slight modifications to the box (wheel and handle and access cover mods) as i'm sure most people have! be wary of the 18mm conversion plans there is a few head scratchin moments in there, measure twice cut once is the name of the game

so are you in the uk then?

Yeah i'm in Nottingham.

Looking at building a couple of LABs and obviously want to use the best sounding design. I read that the version 3 had smoothed out the response a bit. If i can't find any proper plans i'll probably resort to building version 2. What were the mods you did to yours? Anything major?

The modifications i made constisted of throwing away the construction guides after 2 days work and going about it my own way, it is imposible to build a box exactly to the 18mm ply conversion dimentions. Plan your own method of assembly, worked for me.

The main layout of the horn in the box is as the mk 2, i did make my own personal mods like handle placement, wheels, metal access covers etc.

tested one last night with some drum and bass, oh baby.

good to hear someone using the LABs for D&B Smile  Apparently the Tribe of Munt (techno sound system) have been using some LABs for a few months.  Let me know if the LABs will be out gigging as I would love to have a listen to the finished article.

BTW I am using Peter's design.  The V3.0 does smooth the frequency response but seems to allow greater cone excursion so I decided against.

Hi Jeff,

Our system is small but lovely. Our name changes on a fairly regular basis, but at the moment it is called BASSIC.

We do the odd party and pub night in and around Dorchester but we have only recently become system owners prefering to go to Bristol based free parties (were you at steart/ smeatharpe/ leominster/ merthyr?)

Our system is made up of 4 12" coax beymer speakers and will soon include a pair of LabSubs (C-Audio and QSC amps). We also sometimes add a mate's KAM 1850's for a little extra.

I'm sure I have been to a NINE BAR party - are you from the south west too? Will you be doing a post Ashton Court Party?

Maybe see you there. Twisted Evil
