Help With Fergitron Dividing Network for a custom built speaker?
I have a question about a custom speaker I
once acquired and spent a little time with. I eventually parted it out after my ex-wife relocated me.....
My main system at the time included a pair of JBL 4435 speakers which I liked very much. So I like big vintage JBL speakers for some types of music.
I kept the dividing network because I thought someday
I might want to build a slightly modified pair. The speaker was purchased from
a roadie who was involved with the Alice Cooper Billion Dollar Babies Tour. He said it was used
for “side fill” on the tour. It was a massive speaker approx.. 60”H x 40"W x 30"D and
constructed of 1” 22-ply Russian White Birch. It was marked as a custom
creation by Fergitron Electronics. It is probably close to a JBL 4343. I kept the dividing network which can be
seen here: https://photos.google.com/album/AF1QipOrijNudEVp6CXI-grr4dQpFVL_YMcGldl1spPx
used the following speakers:
- Gauss Cetec #1502 8 ohm
- JBL 2470 driver (16 ohm)
50 watt with JBL 2345 radial horn.
- Gauss 12” midrange
- Gauss #4580 8 ohm 15”
- Fergitron #2060-3 8/16/8
ohm. 2000-6000 Hz. 200 watts.
I was thinking of building
a pair myself and substituting the Gauss drivers for vintage JBL’s and having
someone I know build a duplicate copy of the dividing network. I
can’t find anything on Fergitron so I cannot contact them for information. Does anyone here know anything about Fergitron
and whether this network worth the effort to duplicate for a large speaker project like the one I am thinking about?
be helpful and merciful, I am an aspiring audiophile on a tight budget….
