I wish to fit a 50mm - 8 ohm Myler speaker into my current project. Any suggestions/recommendations regarding the correct mounting i.e. does it need a baffle board?

Thanks in advance David Marks

with a baffle board or a small wooden box will make a huge difference as the speaker fires it gives waves from the front and the back you don't want the reverse sound bouncing back to the front destroys the sound

All speakers need a baffle board if you want them to be heard. The longer the air path from back to front, the better. If the back of the speaker can be enclosed in a container that doesn't let sound through, that is good. The bigger that space, the better. It also needs a clear air path in front, to let the sound out of the boat.

Hi David , I have mounted my speaker on a board flush with the top of the hull and used the hull as a BOOM box as they say and it sounds great .

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
