Happy New Year,
Ed

Just  a bit  of an update for those interested. 
I've done up a  model  with  some mods to the original baffle and a  dxf.  They  have been submitted  for programming and cutting  .   Hopefully will have a  prototype done  fairly soon that  I can get down to  Danny  for   testing

Danny's got a fully built, gorgeous silver  pair he  offered up for  $10k (see his post onthe previous page)


With all the time/labour involved in finishing a  set  to that level, jump on   these

 :D time is what I do have,,,,ha.  Budget minded as you know. Just need that baffle. Are you just going to make a top piece to sit on the dual sub box ? That would work ,,,, :D

If you are going to build the S7's, do yourself a favor and go straight for the Jantzen wax/paper/copper foil inductors.  I also prefer the ClarityCap MRs bypassed with Jupiter copper foils.  Both caps are great, but the real magic is the Jupiters, IMO.  If you can afford it, just get Jupiters as your full sized caps and forgo the CarityCaps (or Sonicaps) completely.  Jupiters are so good, they do not need to be bypassed, if you use them as your main caps.

Yeah, I like those Copper foil Jupiter caps too. But it will be $2,440 for the four caps needed.  :(

No doubt!  Although I do think the Jupiters are as good (and maybe better) than the Dueland caps and those are 2x to 4x more expensive than the Jupiters!!!!

The ClarityCap MR bypassed with the Jupiters gets you pretty darn good sound, too.

Just for my own curiosity, if this Super-7 rebirth comes to fruition, can you listen to these speakers in the mid/near-field? I have been enjoying my set up more currently, having moved to sitting about 5-6 feet away from my speakers.

Would sitting that close with the Super-7 not work correctly?

Yeah, I have everything in stock to build out a set, and I have a completed set.

Not a problem.

The crossover was designed with 1 meter (39") and 56" measurements to the mic. So the drivers have blended seamlessly by that distance.

 :D. Ok,  give her hell Jay.  Get a few slip-on baffles made to sit on the sub boxes and I'm in. 
        Sorry Danny,   I'm a little slow on the take.  4 caps are an extra 3 grand my $ ?  Don't think I'll be
             doing that .....  :D

The crossover parts that Danny designed these with don't cost near that much.

Tyson was just telling you what he has done and is suggesting the much more expensive caps instead.

I agree with Tyson I upgraded to the Jupiter Foil with Sonicap bypass, but I use Alpha Core coils. Pricy but in my opinion well worth the $, really a step up.
