    The angle on the edge of the front baffle give them a very nice look; a step above average DIY.

    Thanks!

    The lazy suzan is for measuring off axis response. This tweeter/mid combo measures better than anything else I've built before...and better than almost anything I've seen in Stereophile.

    Only 1.5", anything more really isn't needed. I'm still up in the air as far as finishes go.

    Sure, but you may change your mind after you look up the cost of drivers alone. Not everything I build gets posted there.

    Hey Face! very nice diy speaker. I know very well when you say the high cost...you can go cheap and you can go expensive in diy way!!! I build my own integrated amplifier and just in parts I spent $700 and my friend wanted one too but He went for the cheap version so I build the same amp for Him but I used cheap parts and recycle a lot of parts, all went for around $250 in parts.

    Thanks. I could build a cheaper version, it just wouldn't be the same speaker...

    With crossover, probably close to the 705. If you are serious, I could build a scaled down version that will be close in SQ, but cost a lot less.

    I hope this is a joke? The bottom two pictures are variations of back loaded horn drivers, and are very effective at creating high sensitivity, full range sound out of a small driver; it's all physics. If you are going to accurately reproduce a low frequency sound wave (which are very long in opposition of high frequencies, 50Hz is about 22ft long), you need to allow it to propagate through an amplifying enclosure that is a multiple of those wavelengths.

    No joke! Just hard to believe a driver that small can move much air.

    I can appreciate work like those speakers above, but I'd still rather have a dedicated bass driver for lower distortion and more headroom.

    Agreed as those types of speakers have a certain sound, which I find too limiting for my variety of musical taste.
