Hivi 3Way Build
« on: June 11, 2018, 10:44:13 AM »
Hi everyone. I would like to tackle a 3 way build next. I have the following drivers that I want to use: Hivi F8N, Hivi F5N and Hivi SD1.1-A tweeters. I dont have crossovers yet, not sure what to get and where. Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated.

if you want to use it as per pic this will be better



Otherwise remember to get the tweeter at ear level and mid-  tweeter spacing as close as possible

Should I separate the 8 from the 5 and tweeter?

I mean 1 box with 2 compartments. Then I put the 8 in its own compartment with its own port?

Yah 5 should  / must be in its own space  . A ceramic flowerpot makes a nice mid enclosure btw    In your design that can be sealed.

Yes. The woofer and mid should have their own respective enclosures. The tweeter is sealed, so can share the space of either of them.

yes the best would be 8" in its own calculated enclosure and 5" in a small enclosure to seal it from the bass driver. but most importantly is to calculate the enclosures properly and the ports required. the drivers do have some nasty breakup and will require 2nd order crossovers.
