Tweeters Arrangements Inside The Open Roof Areas !!!

I received the following and I think all those who used the open roof type will face similar situations:

Hi Harry,

I'm D here. My BH sometime got many bird fly in and play inside there, but sometime dun have any bird. Is it something wrong with my BH? Or this is normal to the new BH (just operate for one month)?

I got something to ask you regarding the External tweeter installation at Open Roof type entrance. Attached is the plan view of my open roof entrance. I hear people said that, the external tweeter cannot installed like the picture i attached above. This is because the sound of the tweeter will crossing with the other tweeter sound which may cause the bird feel uncomfortable and confuse. Is it true?

Thanks for your advise.


When your BH is new you will normally will face many interesting observations:

1) There will be lots of birds coming over your place and wanted to enter the BH.  On the first day of operation sometime every birds that passes by will drop and enter the new BH for a quick look.

2) Those birds that already have their nests somewhere will not enter your BH for long.  They will just wanted to enjoy your new sound.

3) The young birds shall be your target new tenant.  Usually there will be only about 30% of the crowd are them, depending on the time of the breeding cycle, and they will go deeper into the BH.

4) The next issue is about the tweeters placements.  If you tweeters, external sound, are not properly placed those birds will just plays at the entrance hole.  The moment they passed the tweeter's base they will loose the sound.  When that happened they will make a quick turn to be outside the house.  So you might need to ensure that your tweeters arrangement is correct.

5) If you want to pull the birds deeper into your nesting rooms you need to install a few tweeters playing the external sound at the very far end of the nesting rooms.

6) As for your top entrance tweeter arrangements, I think you should face those tweeters to the sky and not to the wall. Those birds loves good sounds.  Once a new and good sound is played they will rush towards the source.  Those crossing spots are not that important.  Try not to get yourself too much into something that gives you negative thoughts.

7) Check the flying path carefully and orientate the tweeters towards their evening flying path.

8) You should tilt your tweeters between 40* to 90* so that you can push the sound towards the sky or where those birds are flying by.

9) Try to use tweeters that have water drainage holes at the base.  This will allow rain water to be drained out immediately after a heavy shower.

10) If you installed those hexagonal tweeters on your roof nearby, my advise is to arrange at least two tweeters to shoot to it.  The rest towards the flying path.

Hope Mr D reads this article.
