Yes, I'm new to horns...I have only my ears...with other needed skills I have people around who help me and thank you for your help also.If you read SoundEx, then I don't need to post here.I'll be happy for any comments on my pages.
Thank you,
Murat.

P.S. today my friend made this video...he is selling vintage audio gear and has huge experience...his conclusion was: live music!...best he ever heard!
I'm really happy to have such a feedback, but I know it, anyway Smile

The RAAL
fiogf49gjkf0d
Looks like you still have the protective shield over the front of the RAAL ribbon in the video.  Is the RAAL in use or turned off?

RAAL is off now
fiogf49gjkf0d
Yes, now it is off. It is connected to 109db tap, but still can't match the sensitivity of the rest of the system.
So, I need another amp for it which is a big problem, because my amp is "piece uniqe" and I need to wait more that a year for the second pair.
I have an opportunity to try GOTO SG-17, but I think it will be the same problem.
More than 110db for the 14k+ range is impossible to get, so I need to wait for another amp.

Maybe talk to RAAL about changing the transformer
fiogf49gjkf0d
There should be an 111dB tap on the Lazy Ribbon, but perhaps you have tried that already.  Other than that, perhaps talk to RAAL to see if they can improve the sensitivity a little more with a transformer change (or something else)...it might be quicker than waiting a year for another amplifier.

Yes, I've tried most sensitive tap (3.5 Ohm).I'll contact with Alexandar to check if he can do something. It will be great if it is possible to modify it for higher sensitivy!

Anthony, sometimes 111dB is not what it is. In context of what he does and with GBL driver in MF I can see that he need ~101-103dB, I meant true dB. Do not forget that RAAls are line array  that would give you + 3dB and they are ribbons that would give you extra 1-3dB. In the bright room as he has he would not need a tweeter that runs far over 100dB, particularly if he load  it at the transition slope. Anyhow, I do not think it worth to think about this tweeter seriously as I am sure that very soon another 3-4 tweeters will be bought, tried and misevaluated. It is what it is.

Your friend is idiot and I have read his comments. Most of the people from your surrounding are idiots (of cause I am talking audio-wise) and musically are they are as barbaric as it could be. If you was trying to pursue to some kind of sound of your mind with your own listening and sonic objective then it would be one thing but unfortunately the whole interest you have in this business is to entertain yourself by participating in a social media-reported project. That is boring and tedious and you do not need a consultation with people who practice audio but rather a session  with behavioral psychologist....

Have you had any experience ?
fiogf49gjkf0d
Romy, I think that your problem is that you stuck in past with your existing experience.You never tried latest JBLs. You never tried LeCleach profiles. You have your own reasons not do it. But I don't see any reasons to comment others experience in the field where you don't have it.I already tried all kind of horn tweeters, so there is no room for another 3-4. RAAL is the only choice. If Alexandar can make it more sensitive - good for me.

We all (including you) have the same physical capabilities to enjoy live music. We both (with my friend) like to visit true live concerts in our local musical school and big concerts in Moscow. We have the same imagination of true live sound. Please, don't think that you are somehow unique in this regard. It is silly.

Of course, it is my own listening and sonic objectives, but why do you think that they are somehow different from others objectives. We all enjoy live music and want to have it in our home. And this is our hobby, so yes...we enjoy it and entertain ourselfs. It is not my business or antoher kind of interest.

…and you feel that using La profiles, computerized prediction and Neodymium rendition 2440 would make you “contemporary”? You are so uninformed about what you are saying and you have no even curiosity why you are so way off.

You will discover eventually RALL is no good match for JBL MF drivers and you have enough money and enough of that ridicules buying itch to keep purchasing all of that crap. That apparently gives some kind of “other” satisfaction. Which is OK. Let me to play with you a game. You so (unthinkingly) insist on La profiles for you horns but your tweeter has no La profile. Oh, my God, the channel where the edge termination is the most important and suddenly no negative opening!   My Deep Purple will be terminally ruined. Givolt!!! You need to do something with it.

   Oh, God! The idiot Lechnitsky told to pure Russian audiophiles that they need to tell each other that they go concerts but he did not manage to tell them what to do during the concerts.  Please, Murat, I have read plenty of audiophiles in Russia to talk about “music” and I well know the value of that lunacy.

Honestly I do not see any. I do see a desire to buy components, to pile them in listening room, to make pictures of them, to talk at forums using audio terminology and to demonstrate an adolescent excitement about any archived mediocracy. This is about all that I see. I do not say that it is bad, it is better than to drink vodka for instance but it has nothing to do with audio interests that I would be attracted or where I feel any difference might be made.

Good, I hate to know everything! I just wrote that the poor Murat with his neurotic audiophile itch is condemned to go brainlessly very soon over many drivers. A few days pass and the guy have brought to his room an army of WEs, Gotos, Votavoxs, new JBLs and insist that he is experimenting. It is the very same guy who has (based upon the questions he is asking) very little comprehend ion regarding drivers loading, crossovering, amplification, channels integration and who has listening intelligence very questionable. I am sure that 3 days after tomorrow he will be flooding the internet with pontification like "come on I have tried that WE(or whatever)  and I didn't (or did) like it". What the waste! I told in the very beginning of the thread that Murat has to take it very sallow , do not buy anything for a year  and spend it not for "building" but rather self-educating what the purpose of audio might be. Apparently, my advise opened some kind of Pandora Box for the worst audiophile itch. God, I thought that I am a great Nostradamus but it turn out that I am a great diagnostician as well.

Time alignment
fiogf49gjkf0d
Murat, I was looking at your midbass horn design and I am wondering, how are you planning to time align that long midbass with the rest of the channels that seem to be time aligned. I mean, currently the midbass is physically 4.3m behind all other channels. Do you plan to use DSP with delay or some other solution?

It is 35Hz, 4.3m long and 1.4m mouth.

I believe that delay is easy to organize in digital domain without influence to the signal.I have custom DAC project and may be I'll use separate DAC for this channel with USB data buffer to organize delay.Another simple way is to do it on source software side. I didn't decide yet.

Romy, read my first post here.I told from the beginning that I'm going to try all kind of respected drivers to decide for myself what I like most.This is not about system as a whole with crossovering and other things. It is about sound of exact driver for exact range in most suitable horn for this range.For midBass and upperBass I've finally decided to use GOTO SG-146 - 4" throat in 46Hz and 200Hz LeCleach.For the 500+hz range I'm going to compare WE555, GOTO-555, Vitavox S2 and JBLs. For next range S2 and JBLs. Then RAAL and may be GOTO-SG17.I'm lucky to have all of them in my room and why not to evaluate ?You insist that I'm doing wrong, but honestly, I don't understand what are you talking about. And my impression, that you need to answer yourself why you worry about such a simple thing as comparison of different drivers.
 It is the very same guy who has (based upon the questions he is asking) very little comprehend ion regarding drivers loading, crossovering, amplification, channels integration and who has listening intelligence very questionable.
You don't know anything about my listening intelligence and better not to mention anything about it. Imagine that I have my own unintelligent expectations and want to fulfill them anyway. I'm not suggesting you anything from my unintelligent taste and not gong to further post my impressions, so don't worry.Regarding driver loading I'm not sure that you know everything about it. You can't explain how I get 150hz in 200hz LeCleach and your imaginations about driver with 2 springs are very irrelevant to what it is in reality. You don't understand superiority of compression driver for the low frequencies. You think that LeCleach's curl is useless for low frequencies. You don't trust HornResp. You just have your own explanation of things like anybody else. Nothing special - believe me. Everyone is the same. Everyone want to think that he is special and has some unique knowledge, but it is never true. So, I suggest you to be open for others experience. This is more respectable, I believe.

Well, perhaps I have more respect to the subject then to the people who do not understand the subject? You are taking about bolting different brands and models of driver to a random pile of acoustic irrelevancy and listening unsystematic results by the ears which have no idea what to listen, by the brain that has very little experience how to interpret the heard and by a mind that has no understanding about metrological discipline.  Why do you think I invest very little into my expectations from your experiments?
 Murataltuev wrote:

Actually I do. I read plenty of your posts and well observed the way how you interpret what you hear. I also paid attention to the way how you repeat and editorialize the words of others and I know very much who those others are. While you do it you feel that you extend the subject and compliment the subject with your own take but in reality you in fact do misunderstand the subject. I have seen it a few times and it was very indicative to me.

Sure, no one suggest that you should not fulfill your own expectations. Whatever make you happy! It is my verdict that your expectations has nothing to do with what I feel might be used as vicarious learning and I have very little expectations from your finding. There are other people at this forum and you might post whatever you want but I think you need to know my general outlook about your practice. Real sonic result does not come from running over stupidly “testing” an army of drives but perfecting of one driver. You do not know what it means at this point  but it is OK.

God, how the hell I deserve all of it? I do not want to explain to you each point – you will not understand. I will tell you only one thing. I am not against the HornResp but I am against the HornResp or RTA in the hand of the people like you. You people have no idea how to interpreted graphs and how they related to actual listening experience and in my view your “measurements” are irrelevant.

Nope, laughing about Morons one do not need to insist to be a Great Master or to pretend to be experienced with great audio. The sad thing in this whole story is that I am not laughing about what you do. In fact I took it is very seriously, listened you attentively and told you what I think you should do - take a fucking time and build in your mind a sense of own actions. Instead of trying to think and to understand what and why I recommend it you went for exact opposite – a barbaric and brainless actions.  That is why I am not interested: I was there, I know what it leads to. You might (or not might) “get” it in 10-15 years, until then enjoy your life but all attention that you will get from me would be a presumption of foolishness.

Yes, a separate delayed DAC, if one use only one digital source, is an elegant way to organize delay for the rest of channels. It does not answer the mains question however: why a midbass horn has to be positioned at the location of main channel’s stack? I was under impression that midbass must not be positioned in there, but it might be my hallucinations….

Oh, might God, Murat, I am so sorry. This is the very first time when I got mistaken in assessment of internet audio hoodlums. I thought that you are  a Moron but after listening of your evaluation session that you so kindly uploaded and commented upon in so minute details: 
 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfkV66A7ZlM 
 
... I realized that you are a genius and I was a Moron. Evrything is great with your new experiments and your sound is so wonderful! Please quote me at your Russian site. You are the generalissimo of Russian horn installations and I think Russians need to put your face at their money.

Evaluation
fiogf49gjkf0d
I had my friend visited (he is on video in red) and he asked to play his music to evaluate coloration. His verdict was - he doesn't hear horns!He never used horns because of coloration and was very skeptical about my project, but he said that it is first time he doesn't hear horns. And I've posted it because my readers always complain that may be my system is doing well only classical. So, I've posted also some vocal:

Anthony, thank you again for your suggestion. I didn't even expect that it is possible.Alexandar confirmed modified tweeter for me:Let’s make a tweeter with 3.5, 2.5, 1.75 and 1.23 Ohm. That will give you 1.5dB steps, just like on existing tweeters and max sensitivity of 4.5dB higher than what you have now on 3.5 Ohm.

A false alert.
fiogf49gjkf0d
To Murataltuev:
 
Murat, do not worry about it, you are not too bright (audio-wise) to understand even the subject of this thread. I do recommend you do not waste your time neither to read nor post at this site. You of cause can read but since you understated read, heard and seen less than my Cats I wish do not hear at this site about your “progress”. I had enough idiots at this site who flooded it with by-products of their “audio practice” and I do not want juts waste of my forum space.   
 
To the Rest Readers:
 
Sorry, folks it was a false alert. I was initially under impression that the guy above is trying to build some kind of audio but he turned out to be just an internet buffoon with accidently acquired audio vocabulary.

GOTO 146: Quite accurate prediction.
fiogf49gjkf0d
Some of you remember as a few months ago a Russian guy pup up at this site with GOTO 146 driver and wanted to build a midbass horns with them. I naturally took interest as I never dealt with Japanese 4” compression drivers and I though it might be a good learning vicarious experience. I did express some warnings about GOTO 146, not that I have my own experience with it but rather productive warning, something that in my view derived from the driver design. Eventually I felt that this Russian guy is nor particular worthy material for collaboration and I withdrew from his association. I still sometime monitor what he is doing and the direction he is going.  It is no surprise that he in his playback progress is running in his successes and failures directly along with the plot that I predicted to him months back. I found this “plot for retards” and this Russian guy unfortunately fits the bill. However, if analyze what he does and put out parentheses the stupidity of his action and his obvious disability to realize what he is doing then his actions and his results do objectively demonstrate something about GOTO 146 driver and what is the most important in a way demonstrate the value of my initial predications. The predications was about using GOTO-like drivers very cautiously as this over-magnetized topology might not be suitable for bass. This is very interesting concept that I was pitching in multiple threads including the electromagnet thread. From what I am seeing that Russian guy does indicated to me that he hit the problem I predicted. Without having my own ability to experiment with it I do not think I will progress in my judgment but the word of warning is still there: beware the overly controlled drivers as it might compromise bass softness. Sure there are way to deal with it by imposing different loading mechanisms but this is very murky subjects and you will be stepping in very uncharted waters.

Great, thanks!

Thanks, Murat. I do not need neither the listed drivers nor 146 that you feel is work out better for you.  As initially told you your endeavor is just a waste of the drivers and it was very clear from very beginning that your infatuation with GOTO will be over very fast and you will move very fast to brainlessly admire a next hallucinary crappie invention of your mind. It is sad that you having a freedom with GOTO did not experiment with them sanely. It all was exactly as I predicted as you started before: brainless application of GOTO drivers, stupid and senseless conclusions and result assessments, barbarian Sound accomplished, discarding the whole project and them cursing the internet forums with pontifications about your GOTO wisdom and horn practice. If you member I called your Russian Angelo, after a Brazilian retard who does the same for years. Well, I seldom wrong and your story is the case to prove the point. So, feel free to call your drivers unused as trust me you never used them. 
 
 
PS: I still glad that you did go over the GOTO testing as you unwittingly proved a very important point of GOTO application.

Told you so, or, maybe not?
I suspect you were both right.
We each have our own priorities, but I did find a couple of his youtube videos to be interesting, as far as one can tell anything useful from compressed video.
Not the point though really.
I'm more interested in this idea of bass hardness-softness and whether it's truly a question of magnetic hardness.
Your experiments were interesting, but as you accurately pointed out, Goto systems are without fail fairly badly implemented in concept, and so i don't think we can yet be conclusive on that extreme.
The fact that our man here seems perhaps to have given up on the project(?) seems to put the experiment yet again out of reach.

I think though, you might have been a touch hard on him, there was clearly something lost in translation, and he was learning, at his pace.
But then again, could have just been more money than brains.

I'm stuck in the same vicarious camp, because i can't even imagine spending that kind of money on any single component.
