Any thoughts on the diffraction of the front baffle? I notice your F3’s has a lip around the edge where the grills go but it is not as demonstrative as mine. Part of my mod is trimming off that lip from the sides and top/bottom but my cabinets are not veneered like yours. Just wondering if that is something you’ve considered or not and if it shows up on measurements.
The horns seem to be directional enough that it doesn't affect the sound.
Can you show us a pic of the stock crossover?
Yep, it's coming tomorrow.
I am a little shocked to see a $3998/pair speaker without bracing though. Looks like a Duratex like finish on the front/rear baffles with a veneer wrap around. Good thing you are showing these things systematically, thanks!
Oh, there's bracing now. We braced the hell out of them, haha. I'll post some pics tomorrow and also we've lined them with norez. There also wasn't any acoustic stuffing, so that's going in there too. Parts quality on the crossover leaves a bit to be desired. I'll post more tomorrow on the crossover stuff.
Also, the horns are made of plastic. I'm going to damp them down too. The woofer frames are thin and resonant as well, all of it's getting damped....
