pipe speaker design

In all my work area was about 5'x8' so the notion of saw horses, dust free paint shops, and bunches of clamps etc. Occasionally, I hear it resonating at lower notes, which is undesirable. Use of pipes was suggested by … Cut the back to width, leaving enough material for finishing. A Tapered Quarter Wave Pipe (or sometimes Tube - hence TQWT). I want to get a subwoofer so I can high-pass filter the Voigt pipes around 60Hz. The backs were hinged so that I could adjust stuffing, felt, etc. In reality, all three alternates represent the same loudspeaker mechanism with different cone suspension compliances. Same goes for finding the holes for the drivers after you are done veneering. I would like to try the folded Voigt pipe and would like to make them longer so I can used them without a sub. Do not put legs on the bottom of the speaker cabinets, because the rectangular vent hole uses the room's floor for extended bass radiation. Repeat until there are no more imperfections, using 220 grit paper. It is highly regarded by some speaker designers, as evidenced by established manufacturers such as Castle. But what they have in volumes is that immeasurable quotient of speed fun and dynamics and they do not suffer the sweet spot of many single drivers....hey you move around with these and still feel that you are having your cake and eating it too. The port baffle is decorative. Make the driver cutout . Buried in the pages was a Fostex design using the FE207E and the Fostex recommended super tweeter. I didn't want to spend another penny on more dowel just for veneering so I improvised a set of “tent cards” fabricated out of photo enlargement sleeves. Along came summer 1999 and time passed with other predilections. The Copper Tones Speaker A CSS FR125 Full Range Driver in a ML TL Enclosure The BSC is Built into the Base Built by Paul Kittinger. Surfing the inter-net for speaker projects, I looked at many but shied away from complicated vented boxes, transmission lines and crossovers with associated math. Here's the front with the stringers clamped and glued. I'm going to have to remove some of the lining and retest. In the far field, frequencies below 800hz are reduced by several db's. Careful with the thin ends of the triangles! The driver is not placed at the apex of a horn as usual but rather at 1/3 of horn's lenght. This is why you start with an overlength board. It works like the sound-post in a violin and helps keeping the magnet rigidly mounted. After Christmas we set up a shoot out between the speaker pairs, the Voigt Pipes and the Hawaii 5.0 boxes. Here's one completed side sitting atop the remaining piece. There are four traditional pipes used for both my front and surround speakers, and a modified pipe for my center channel. The concept is an economical speaker based on a waveguide and efficient pro midbass. The Voigt Pipe with its single full range driver is the most amazing speaker that I have heard. The RS 40-1354 are said to go up to 15 kHz but not much further and I like the absence of that abrasive hiss some tweeters offer from digital recordings. My system diagram. There is a comprehensive study on TQWT with additional helmholz resonators writen by Jack Jakulis (Word 97 format). The concept is that the sound emitted from the rear of the loudspeaker driver is progressively reflected and absorbed along the length of the tapering tube, almost completely preventing internally reflected sound being re-transmitted through the cone of the loudspeaker. They have 3 dimensionality and depth even when we are far away from the sweet spot. The connectors are slipped onto the driver terminals and the driver is installed. A Folded Tapered Quarter Wave Pipe using the Fostex FE-167E Full Range Driver Rear View Built by Richard Goodland Cut the baffle to length with a little left over for finishing at the top. Spray the color coat. The only thing that didn't turn out as well as I had hoped was the top of the back panel on both speakers. Normally this vent has a horizontal floor and is approx. There's enough choice in tuning them that you should be able to make them sound good to you too. The fast transient response of such wide-bandwidth systems just makes the sound so smooth, like a well built horn-loaded speaker. the Voigt Pipe is a Tapered Quarter Wave Pipe enclosure, which is a very old design and not very popular today becasue of its size (if built full length like this one) or the complexity of the cabinet if built as a folded horn. The first pair that I built were experimental, and I had no desire to invest any more money and time then needed. Loosely stuff the upper half of the pipe with clean, long hair wool or equivalent damping material. All five speakers use a single Radio-Shack 8" 35-Watt full-range driver. One good example of a spherical speaker is the Gallo Nucleus Solo above on the left which is made of rolled steel or brass. I ended up not including one ... principally because I only have a 2 W amp and the line level correction just stole too much of the ambiance I was striving for. This will assure that everything will be square. This is indeed a marriage made in heaven. This is pretty much for cosmetics only, so put what ever edge treatment you want. The stuff is brittle, expensive, and itchy. Placement within the room ... OK ... a matter for each situation and room , but in my case they are 34" from the back wall and 20" from the side wall. But it was the anticipation of listening when I was coming home every day that made me think of what was happening here. One solution is to place the speakers flush against the back wall. First, I took some SPL measurements of the bare pipe. Then, you need to sand virtually all of the primer off, which takes forever and clogs all of your sandpaper, because you didn't let it dry long enough. I used about a l ½ lbs. Gio Post subject: Re: PVC Pipe Speaker Project with HiVi B3N / T20-8. Once the contact cement has dried for the recommended 40 minutes or so just lay them out and then beginto place the sheet of veneer over the work and then pull them out one at a time. Finally, in the upstairs listening room connected to the Bottlehead Paramours. So I drilled a pilot hole, stuck in the cutting bit and proceeded to drag the router around the circle I had drawn. Once everything is smooth, spray the entire cabinet and sand smooth with 320 grit. A wood rasp to knock down the big stuff and some bondo and everything was 'true enough' to veneer. Instead of a smart talk, here are measurements of different stuffing strategies. long and the width of the box) and just using a staple gun to secure it. I think it sounds good.No, this is not an invitation for speaker wire debate. Proper mouth size should be 1-2.5x Sd depending of the author, which should be closed down a bit to get the best sound. Stand the side panels up on the baffle. Place the port block between the sides and clamp the sides with a bar clamp. Voigt's audio inventions. Align the 1" lines on the sides with the bottom of the baffle and clamp the sides to the scrap with a bar clamp. It's surprisingly easy to get two identical triangles from one board. Cutting Driver Holes Too Wide ... Well ... so much for precision (see section above). It's a bigger surface area for the stuffing to have to leak past and is easy to stretch out of the way if you want to put more/less stuffing into the box. During a school break, I constructed a single pair of pipes. Run a 1/4 bead of glue down the edge of the back. The RS drivers put out a lot. Instead of troublesome tuning, two or more pipes can be employed in one enclosure, possibly even with different drivers. I used Silicon glue for that. I switched to my dremel with about the same effect. I think these equations are for a fully stuffed pipe, because mine seems to drop off around 55Hz, and it's about 60% stuffed. The internal dimensions are determined so that the throat area is equal to the driver Sd and the mouth area equal to 4 times Sd. i have found that it can rob too much of the top end so a similar but alternative solution was found with the use of polyfil teased out very lightly. It's the mouth of a horn, so this 45 degree reflector really does make sense. Save the scrap piece. For some time I was already tired of our stereo, I really did not use it much, but my daughter did and I liked what she listened to, only I could hardly stand the speakers threshing out the same bass-note when it got below 100 Hz somewhere. I have no idea what havoc shelf braces would bring. Align the inside edge of the back with the bottom of the sides. Based on my experience with these speakers, any speakers that I seriously invest in will probably be based on full-range or extended-range drivers. Screw it to the baffle for alignment, but try to keep glue out of the top/baffle joint at this time. Important note: The center of gravity for these enclosures is NOT at the front-back center of the enclosure; it's much closer to the front. Get primer in spray cans! Veneer it, paint it, whatever. Be very careful handling the sides before the cabinet is assembled; the pointed tops are very fragile. Two things happen. It will be used for the port block, and as a spacer during gluing. The 40-1044s' range is perfect for vinyl, CD, and movies, but they are a bit lacking when it comes to using them with DVD-Audio. The following section describes some lessons learned that I hope you find helpful. Thanks Steve L. for the bondo suggestion. The triangular nature of the Voigt pipe causes its resonant frequencies to be spread across the midrange bands, and the length of the pipe accentuates the bass frequencies very well. Driven with 8 watts they will blow the top off your house and their dynamics will slam you back against the wall with their speed. Some calculations for the center channel were inaccurate. ALSO NOTICE, that some more expensive drivers do not meet these criteria quite as well, including the FE208 Sigma, or even the new-fangled, just out FE207E. The cabinet does vibrate and works as a secondary radiator to some extend, similar to a musical instrument. One pipe with its unfinished speaker mounting baffle and port baffle set in place to check fit. Take about a foot of 2" by 3" lumber and slice it in two pieces lengthwise but at an 7 degree angle. was out. There are several types of transmission line enclosures and one of the more popular ones is the mass loaded transmission line (MLTL). Spread it with a finger, making sure the entire edge is wet. I used the eyelet screws and tied first-aid gauze to retain the stuffing while I was 'tuning'. Since the high frequencies will have to be rolled off to avoid localization such speakers can be built with a single driver. The "port" really isn't a port at all. Discover (and save!) Mark the width of the back and draw a cut line the length of the board. This tool ROCKS. I put screws on 6" centers. True edges and apply the edge treatment of you choice. I'll try that next time. Both sets were driven by the same amp using its A/B switches. Some day when I get a more powerful tube amp I'll fiddle around with the speaker level BSC circuit recommended on Martin King's site but for now I'm pleased without it. The Equations I found for Voigt pipes seem to match up well with my version (see right). That one quip has led me down the trail of building these speakers and I hope you get some insight on my project and encourage you to build your own. Not too hard but hard enough to withstand all expected vibrations. When I sealed the boxes for the first time, many screws did not go in straight and occasionally popped out on the surface of the pipes. Place the cabinet on its back and screw down the baffle. I think any glossy cardboard could be used instead.This worked perfectly. A folded Voigt Tapered Quarter Wave Pipe with the 'trickest' crossover giving clarity never before heard with a sound stage that is alive and wider than the speakers themselves. Cut the back to length plus 1/4" extra. By it's shape TQWT is a conical horn with relatively high cutoff frequency. Leave the remaining sheet a few inches longer than the 71" length for reasons I'll explain later. Spray the entire cabinet with primer. The back panel should be miter-cut to fit the 7 degree angle with which it meets the bottom plate but I left it square cut and filled in the gap with silicon caulking. If there are any visible imperfections, fill them NOW with light weight spackling. The trick is to have a major port resonance at the lowest frequency desired (essentially the driver's resonance). This is important! I may try making one three-sided with all sides being triangular (different-sized triangles?). Any reservations that on me may have about them, and yes they are not perfect but what faults that do exist are benign in their presence. When I found the design of the Voigt Pipe at the site of the Lowther Club of Norway I was taken by the simplicity of it and the fact that it uses a single driver, much like a point source that would mirror the microphone that originally recorded the music of acoustical instruments. Other than the peaks on the spikes are rounded over, the correspondence is almost exact. Put the cut off piece between two new shelves, square the edges and clamp both ends. They are not full range drivers and I have no idea what their Qts is. The entire pipe can also be seen as a tapered transmission line in inverted form, that is, widening rather than narrowing from top to bottom. I found the speakers to sound the best to me with a toe in so the intersection was about a yard or so in front of my couch. That being said, the vast majority of DIY speaker builders start with a straightforward, rectangular cabinet design that even though lacks the bells and whistles, and highly engineered elements listed above, still sounds fantastic. Next, I lined all four sides of the cabinet with yellow Fiberglas®. For proper balance the front of the base should extend 4" or more out from the front of the enclosure. The port then needs a second "parasitic" (pipe type) resonance at the second harmonics of the line resonance. The driver is usually positioned close to the middle of the baffle or slightly lower. Finally, put a 3/4" round-over on the outside bottom edge. It is a 8" high efficiency driver of 94dB with an Fr of 55Hz and is an 7.6 Ohm unit and is good up to 16Khz. You want as smooth a frequency response as you can get, right? The stuffing will, however, reduce the sensitivity of the speaker, but compromises must be made, yes? I ended up having to bend one side of the hurricane nut up 90 degrees to get the driver into the hole. Cut the width with a little left over at both sides. Voigt in the 1930's which are similar to the concept of a transmission line, except the speaker is placed near the center of the horn-shaped pipe. Now drill and set the rest of the screws on this edge. But that in NOT why I have it presented here. First you rip the sheet to make it more managable. All five speakers use a single Radio-Shack 8" 35-Watt full-range driver. I have my eye on a Pheonix Gold Cyclone Sub, which is made for car audio, but is the most bizzare speaker I have ever seen (it looks like a washing machine agitator, and works like an Archemedian screw compressor). The only way to reduce these line resonances is to stuff the line severely, which changes air speed and therefore acts as prolongated line, but at the same time kills efficiency. I bought some (20!) Hear the brilliant midrange that makes instruments like the piano come alive or the sound of the strings being strummed on a classical guitar. I wanted the driver to have a response difference between its resonance frequency (Fo) and its midrange sensitivity to be NO MORE than 10db. They stand ~74" tall at the moment (with the bottom attached) and I located the speaker center at 39" above the floor. I rounded the edges and applied a 1/2" roundover to the front and sides. - Herbert Jeschke. Since it is a good idea to place the speakers off center in a baffle and because the scrap plywood I had offered that shape I made those baffles looking a little like wings pointing toward the middle of the sound stage. The midrange can be tuned somewhat by experimenting with additional damping directly behind the driver. from the Lowther Club of Norway: (partial quote). The basic shape is a long wedge that stands on its smallest side. It's behavior is a complex physics of 1/4 wave helmholtz resonator, bass reflex loading and horn loading. Pipe Inner Diameter (inch) This is the inner diameter of each tuning port. Sand it off (150 grit) and apply some more. I will build the next ones for a friend of 3/4" Baltic birch ply. I used tung oil but I think Lacewood wants a high gloss ... with less than perfect sanding to start due to the grain and lots of coats with sanding between. A few years ago /u/datums wrote a series of posts on speaker design. I've ended up naming the speakers LP #9's ... because what could go better with S.E.X. One, you get too much primer around the base and port. NOTE: The baffle is glued to the rest of the cabinet AFTER the cabinets is lined and stuffed. One can argue that this design could use some bracing. Currently I run my recently-built single ended triode amps (Svetlana 811-10) with my Voigt Pipes and really deem myself lucky to have arrived at a really good sounding system so easily. Make these triangles first, that is your trickiest cut. I do recommend using MDF for the first run. There is fortunately another option. I have been listening to these for several hours now and they sound really really good with the plasma tweeters. you're done. Hold it there and let your partner draw a line along the steel wire. This seemed to take care of the BSC, brightness, and all the other offenses that the Fostex drivers are accused of having. The midrange definition and presence is amazing. The depth is increased by 1/2" to allow for the vinyl tile used as internal damping. Surplus Items. The design is simple: A tube of PVC filled with sand sandwiched between two pieces of wood with all-thread. I adapted the design so that I could use it as a center speaker with the distinctive triangular peak that the other pipes contain. That braces the rear panel across its width and will carry the T-nut for the screw. You choose. To this end I ended up having the MDF cut by a pro and I stuck to assembly. Good luck " Thank you for the posting Greg! There are four traditional pipes used for both my front and surround speakers, and a modified pipe for my center channel. I built this page as I went along. A little easier to construct and more stable too. - imagine that you had pivoted the floor on its central axis between the two sides. 8.5 Combinations It is possible to combine various pipe geometries. The notches are caused by line harmonics cancelling the output from the drivers front.

No. Both will be painted satin black for contrast with the natural wood. Finally the 6.5" Fostex FE166E drivers arrived, so I can do the driver cutouts next week. Start with a rectangular piece of your wood 8-3/4" wide and at least 76" long, better longer if the cut should go wrong. With such a high Fr, I was not expecting anything from the bass department - oh how wrong I was there too...I have no problem at all in this area, yes they are a bit bass light and there are times when you wish there was just a little bit more there - but that is more the exception than the rule. Same is probably true if you use cast frame speakers. Below that is the modeled combined output. Frustrated by that I still wanted to try these little 5-1/2 inchers when my eyes fell on the Voigt Pipes in a farther corner of my shop waiting a better day. Apr 18, 2013 - This Pin was discovered by Travis Gibson. Can you post a schematic of the cross-over? Ported vented subwoofer box design calculator solving for port or vent length given port or vent diameter, number of ports or vents, box volume, tuning frequency and end correction factor This Eris set from PreSonus are a high definition studio level pair of monitors. Sadly that site and the many images of other Voight-Pipe builders is no longer available on the web. The cabinet is constructed entirely of butt joints. There are graphs of the finished speaker's sonic characteristics. TQWT and QWT stands for (tappered) quarter wave tube and are also refered as Voight Pipes. I'd like to add a super-tweeter to pick up notes above 18,000 Hz off of high-resolution recordings. The bottom plate butts against the four previous panels. It should be vertical to the front panel and coincide with the speaker axis. Make a subwoofer enclosure plan. The boxes sounded great, very fast and accurate, clear and happy without discoloration that I could hear. But somewhat the sound stage was attached to the speakers or not really free of it. The bass doesn't quite come out and grab you, but it's definetely there, and very accurate and well-defined. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Voigt_pipe&oldid=964405392, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 25 June 2020, at 09:13. I need only 1 to 2 watt for loud listening levels on classical music. The baffle and speaker is mounted with drywall screws and sealed with latex caulk, the household kind. I like the look ... although I suspect there would be more bass if the speaker was sitting on the floor. The Audax HT210A2 full range drive unit is a real bargain.....i.e., cheapie! I think these pipes are the best sounding speakers I have heard for under $100, and my friend says they sound better than most big 3-way speakers he's heard. Cone material is doped paper and the wizzer is also what looks like some sort of treated paper - though stiffer. The bottom line is Miraflex® and polyfill are one-for-one replaceable. It's hard to tell from this picture, but the back of the base is only 1/2" behind the back of the enclosure. Big Mistake! May 17, 2020 - Explore Dennis Perusse's board "speaker cab plans" on Pinterest. They sound especially good driven by a pair of Bottlehead Paramour 2A3 amps. One of the ways to reduce line resonances is to stuff the line severely, which "elongates" (changed speed of sound) the line and prevents midrange output, but at the same time it decreases efficiency. This can be put in after you have already listened to your new speakers, but I found it audibly to great advantage. After I graduated from WPI, I found the time to construct the remaining three pipes to make a complete surround-sound set. Lining of the TQWT's sides is useful for prevention of reflections from side to side of expanding pipe (horn). Put a couple of light coats on the raw edges of the panels. What's next? A good friend of mine had me go demo a pair of Von Schweikert speakers which had a rear firing tweeter. It looks fabulous against the dark amber wall. Figure 18 shows a “passive” circuit which is designed to be placed at the output of the amplifier driving the main speakers which filters and attenuates that signal for feeding to the amplifier(s) driving El Pipe-O. Installing the base. I used ~1.2 lbs of stuffing per pipe in the upper half. These speakers are for Jazz and in my opinion they do a superb job with it. I have seen other versions of this pipe with the units mounted on the sloping side, rather than the vertical one and I have tried it with the cabinet aligned as such, but find that as you might expect - the sound is upward firing...great if you stand up while listening!
