A short lived incredible line of speakers that vanished into oblivion.


This page contains the instructions for the use of the enclosure tuning charts, some data on various speakers/drivers and a chart for enclosure internal dimensions following the golden ratio (Phi) 1.26:1 for various cabinet volumes.  All pages linked below are in high resolution JPG and can be printed with good quality.  They are all in greyscale (black & white) 

They are appropriately labeled below.

The golden ratio dimensions aren't mandatory but many, including myself maintain its attributes.

This theory also applies to room dimensions.

Paul Klipsch references a paper published by R.H. Bolt:

"Note on Normal Frequency Statistics for Rectangular4 Rooms", J.A.S.A. Vol. 178, No. 1, July 1946 pp130-133.

That Klipsch reference can be found in the following 2 links.

The VENT list contains charts for vent tuning at various frequencies for various cabinet volumes as well as maximum power vents and a de-rating set of curves for maximum excursion.  This should all be explained in the instructions.


Links to the various product line tuning charts of GAUSS speakers.

This list will be added to as time permits; I have tuning charts for all GAUSS 10", 12", 15" and 18" speakers.

The model numbers seem to have the following coding from left to right.

First digit = voice coil diameter

Second digit = diameter.  1 is 10"; 2 is `12"; 5 is 1`5"; 8 is 18"

Third digit = impedance   4 = 4 ohms; 6 = 16 ohms; 8 = 8 ohms

The last digit and the letter are unknown.
