Fried Model T subwoofer

Reference Materials

 

The Fried Model T was a dual transmission line subwoofer, using a pair of 10" Dalesford woofers.  It included a crossover to roll off high frequencies to the woofer as well as a set of direct inputs for use with an electronic crossover.  It also included a simple first order passive crossover to roll off the low frequencies in any associated satellite.

The Model T was sold both separately and as the woofer portion of the Model H/2 system, which also included the Model B/2 satellites, complete system shown below.  Lots more info on the H/2 and Model B/2 is here.



The Model T was an evolution of the woofer system from the original Model H, a 3 piece satellite-subwoofer system.  To allow easy customer upgrades (and keep production costs down) the cabinet for the Model T is identical to that for the original Model H, except that the woofer hole was enlarged to accomodate the new 10" woofer (the original Model H was an 8" KEF B200 SP1022).

This page is intended to provide information on the Model T for owners and/or prospective builder's of the system (although the Dalesford woofers are quite rare today).
