G1 V2 Updates


Our goal of this update was to improve and smooth the midrange performance of the Paraflex GLOBAL #1 style 1x12" Kicktop design, but the solution we came up with also benefits the cabinet's lower frequency performance. 

We began this process by taking acoustical measurements of the cabinet's Low-Tuned Resonator Section (with the front of the microphone tucked into the LTR) which we compared with measurements taken with our mic placed in the High-Tuned Resonator section (HTR), both to be compared with standard combined measurements taken at 1 meter.

This analysis revealed that some underdamped odd-order harmonic resonances produced by our LTR section are out of phase with our HTR section's output thereby causing interference in our combined response. These odd-order harmonic resonances can be seen as peaks in the LTR's measurement but create notches & dips in our combined response, most notably at around 500Hz and around 750Hz to 800Hz (in this particular design). 

We tried many different strategies involving offsets, damping materials, and various changes to geometry and chamber/resonator configurations, most all of which did not yield the desired improvements (sufficiently) until we began experimenting with Band-Stop Filters in the form of tuned chambers & ports.

The Band-Stop Filter chambers which have also been called "Absorber Chambers" are a Helmholtz (chamber+port) based solution which effectively tame (damp) the LTR's odd-order harmonic resonances to such an extent that the amount of interference with our cabinet's HTR output is reduced to acceptable levels.    

Our first Band-Stop Filter chambers were created via the utilization of the previously unused volumes behind our flare panels by porting those volume to the LTR's paths, which also as a welcomed secondary benefit makes this volume available to the cabinet's LTR section increasing overall LTR volume in turn allowing for improved low frequency performance.  

In our efforts to optimize the tuned absorber chambers we found that splitting the volumes to double the amount of ported chambers increased their effectiveness in the midrange which makes sense when you consider the target wavelengths involved (as 500Hz and 800Hz do not require large Helmholtz resonator volumes).

With more experiments we discovered that adding some damping material to the chambers and tuning the chambers a bit higher was beneficial.

A tremendous amount of effort from HOQS people all around the world went into the improvement of our G#1 design and we are sure you will enjoy this culmination!
