I bought out the remaining inventory of custom Neo 3 tweeters from Serenity Acoustics. These are the models used in the Super-7.
With these I will be producing a limited number of kits with flat packs. The flat packs are a necessary part of this design and have to be CNC cut. Flat packs will be made by our northern neighbors Jay and Don and drop shipped to each customer per order.
I will be limiting these to ten pairs and that's it.
Basically these are the X-Otica with the custom Neo 3 tweeter in an open baffle wave guide. Testing, measuring, and listening to the prototype went fantasitc. So custom Neo 3 tweeters, M-165NQ-16 woofers, and M-165 woofers below.
Here are a few pics of the test box.
We'll be making a few cosmetic changes like sloping the sides and giving the speaker a slight tilt.
Borrowing lessons learned from the Wedgie design, the baffle is 1.5" thick. And with the Neo tweeter mounted to the back side it physically aligns the Neo tweeter to the voice coils of the woofers. So they stay in phase front to back.
And the 1.5" deep wave guide let the tweeter play way on down....
The test models sounds amazing. It is very much like the Wedgie design but with a little more body and fullness.
