Yes, a lot of effort went into the design and fabrication process. They sound remarkable. What's cool is that they can be stacked in multiples. One could have wall to wall bass if necessary. I'm thinking auditorium.

With EQ, I'm running flat to 20 hz.

Flat to 20hz..... Reminds me of the B&W Nautilus speaker.

What an incredible amount of detail work. I don't even want to know how much they weigh.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

They're quite heavy. I imagine that each segment weights about 600 lbs. That means the combined weight is 1200 lbs. Good thing my floor joists are 3x12s

Thanks for the positive remarks, guys.

Outstanding, Carpenter1!!

Can you provide some details about the HF horn? Did you design it? What driver are you using? Much obliged.

The high frequency horn is paper mâché. I have devoted an entire page to its fabrication.
