Off Topic / Armin will be back soon
« Last post by Rip Van Dan on Today at 09:03:32 PM »
Hi All,

You may have noticed that Armin has not responded to messages recently, which is unusual because he has over 11,000 posts.  I got a message from him asking me to let you all know that he has not had internet accessibility for the last few days but he expects to have it again soon.  May be a couple of days yet, but at least I heard from him and he has not dropped off the edge of the world. :D

I paged a few of the speaker gurus into your post at TalkBass since they might not have seen it yet.  Cheers, Bob

Hi,
  Here is a video of the cabinet and amp head. https://youtu.be/qfK2JV51ohE
I need suggestions on a suitable coaxial and woofer combination. 
Thanks,
Ian
PS I asked this in talk bass also.

Well, if you can live without the coaxial speaker, ie. no tweeter, you could always use these:

Eminence makes retrofit woofers for the XLT and XST cabs.

Glad to see that it turned out so well.  Checked out your slide show and the combination shelf/mount looks like it worked great!

I did tons of research for this project, and concluded that is safe to perform on the amp (but I hold no liability if you try it yourself). I can provide links to info contributing to the claim of it's safety if anyone would like. Or feel free to research it yourself. I have another thread on talkbass.com discussing the project here... https://www.talkbass.com/threads/mounting-my-eden-wt330.1286768/ ...if you would like some detailed info about the planning stages.

Anyway, I hope this is helpful to those of you who are fed up with trying (unsuccessfully or unsatisfactorily) to mount an Eden wt330, wt390, or wt405 to a standard rack case. Enjoy my slideshow here: https://youtu.be/YJm8F3QwGrM

A couple of appropriately bent strips of metal with mounting holes drilled in them?   Not really very much, and probably a much more secure way to mount your amp.

Hi Ian,

Here's the specs for the CXC212 from the 2003 catalog, which used the WT330 for the amp.  The specs for the CXC212 are in the column on the right.  A later version used a different amp with the classic semi-parametrics EQ system but in an FET front end without the golden ear chip (yours has the golden ear tube emulation chip). 

Power handling on it is 400-watts RMS/800-watts peak.  It will go down to 2 ohm minimum load and puts out 420-watts @ 2 ohm. There is a typo on the Frequency Response though.  It is supposed be 40Hz-20KHz   instead of 10Hz-20KHz.



Since your amp will handle a 2 ohm minimum load,  I think it makes sense to use the 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel to make it a 4 ohm cabinet.  Then you will have the 330-watts @ 4 ohms available just using the internal speakers, plus you can add another 4 ohm extension cabinet if you like to run it at 420-watts @ 2 ohms.

I would guess, since the cab originally did 42Hz with the CX1260/CX1260c speakers, that you should go with the 45Hz replacements and not the 55Hz ones.  I don't build cabinets, so I don't know how it's done, but I do know that you need to find out what low frequency the ports are tuned for.  Like Bob said, there are some cab-building gurus on TalkBass.com who might be able to help you out on how to determine that.

Putting different speakers that will actually sound good in this cab without knowing the Thiele-Small parameters is a real trick.  I hope it works out for you.

The plan seems expensive, and may or may not sound good to your ears when you're done.  There are gurus at TalkBass who have the patience to work with you on speaker selection if you provide the net internal volume of the cabinet (subtracting for bracing, ports and the two 12s) and the number, diameter and length of the ports.  With a description of your tone goals, they can make a few recommendations of drivers that could work.  Good luck, Bob
