Anybody use/built the DR290 tops ?
« on: July 14, 2006, 11:00:40 am »

Just wondering if anybody has any experience comments using these:-
http://www.billfitzmaurice.com/DR290.html

They look like the answer to my dreams...

Got the plans and they are a pretty complex build (thats not a problem), but having concerns about a post on speakerplans.com forum raising points that any driver mounted in a bent/folded horn is going to be no good on upper mids....

Just like to get any other views on things as I dont want to waste my time and money building something that is going te be a major let down.  The image shows a slot in the front, this is where the HF driver horns are mounted but it does not shown them.

Cheers, Dave

I have built a pair of DR250's and the output was truly incredible.  It's definitely worth the time and effort.

We are getting 4 dr300's built to go on top of our 8 lab subs, won't be able to report  until we have them all together in mid sept. By all reports the dr's are very good, look forward to hearing them myself though.

Lawrence, what cabs did you replace with the DR250's or have you compared them side to side against other cabs.

I am tryng to get some perspective before I start the build of my own DR290's

Alan, what are you replacing with the DR300's

Cheers, Dave

Lawrence, What drivers did you use on your DR250's ??  Do you have any way of making an RTA plot or frequency/phase spectrum chart for us ??

THanks mate

I used the Eminence Beta 10's.  And the plots should be posted on Bill's site.

Hi Dave, we are building this system from scratch, so we are not so much replacing a system of the same size but upgrading to a bigger system. Although i have been with just 2 lab subs and mackie active speakers up until this point.

Cheers, Alan.

i am also very curious about the DR300 and i can't judge on the measurements made by the producer. I am also concerned about how they sound in the upper mid.

Cheers Alan
What mackie tops are they ?

should be an awesome output system when complete.

I assume you are doing lots of large/outdoor stuff having gone for the DR300's ?
