This is the ROAR10, it is a 10" TPQWR design proposal.
Please note that this design has not been built yet, this far it reside purely in the theoretical domain.

This is the ROAR12, it is a 12" TPQWR design proposal based on 18mm Plywood.

The ROAR12 has been built, and measured loaded with a B&C 12PS100, you can find pictures from the build below courtesy of Johannes Rodin, measurements will be posted as soon as the driver has softened up to give a more fair result.

Further tests and measurements needs to be conducted before we can make more definitive comments on the ROAR12 performance, but so far it shows a lot of promise and it sounds really nice, and much :)

This design has been built yet by yours truly.

Driver mounting envelope check (B&C 15SW115 geometry):

The quick setup:

The measurements below where take a in room, so don't stare yourself blind at the results, yet they should suffice as an indicator of the performance.

Distortion at the appreture ROAR15:

Complete system, bare in mind that this is a room completely devoid of any form of acoustic treatment, the ROAR's are gained up a bit from what I usually like.

Line source adventures

After having seen several compact line source designs based on small full range drivers pop up in the product offerings from big name manufacturers I became intrigued and decided to give this a try.

The Faital Pro 3Fe22 driver seemed too be a good choice since they perform very well, have decent power handling and are affordable in larger quantities.

I decided on a sealed system with ~1,3dm3/driver when sectioning them in groups of four, and it works fine when combined with some low end support, in this case by two THAM10's loaded with Faital Pro 10HP1020.




I'm currently using a Linux loaded skylake I3 NUC with a HRT microstreamer D/A as source, processed by a DBX Drivereack 260 and powered by two LabGruppen IP450's.

The system sound very clean and hints of having a lot of headroom if needed, no doubt it is overkill in the current application, but it sounds really good so I'm happy.

I also tested them together with the ROAR12 with impressive results in an outdoor environment, I really need to do this again, the FCAM123 seems to really like the outdoors, and they sound just fine at a distance.
