The most important thing was to have the woofer integrate with the mids seamlessly.

too many octaves not a chance!,good quality woofers focus only on bass

  • All Tweeters look like a target, then shoot them!
    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

You are referring to big woofers as 15'', what Dave mentioned is able get from 8'' or 6'' woofers as usually used in Europe, sorry the redundance :lol:

Sounds good.  :thumb:

Unfortunately I won't be at RMAF but I live pretty close, about 30-40 min away. RMAF doesn't have a suitable room available and I may not get the final protos done in time anyways, I am looking for a different wood shop right now and may have found a great fit, the owner is into HiFi and builds musical instruments too. But I don't mind demoing the rough protos, they don't look nice but they sound ok... ;)

I just read this thread for the first time and your photo bucket pictures are gone as usual.

Can't you just post some pictures on your own?

I would like to see what you are up to, especially if it looks like porn :lol:

Yea, no one wants to pay the $50+ to upgrade Photobucket. Me too.

Pretty close... the thunderbolts will now be painted on the horns, which will be made out of a cone of the finest cardboard and the latest tech in "invisible" scotch tape!

Unbelievably, pricing will be UNDER 6-FIGURES!  :icon_twisted:

I'm still in the shock and denial phase of my break-up with photobucket. I'll work through it and get some photos up soon...  :wink:

Just so folks aren't disappointed I have not and will not (yet) post pics of the entire speaker until final prototypes are done, and I'm in the process of finding another shop to partner with to build the speakers after the last one proved to be a disappointment. Between this and dealing with branding, marketing, etc. the actual design of the speaker is the easy part!

Just a reminder... if anyone wants to stop by while RMAF is going on I'm about 35 min away in Lafayette. I'll be home about an hour after RMAF is finished for the day Friday through Sunday. I can also be around Friday morning as RMAF starts at noon unless you have a press pass. Espresso drinks will be available Friday morning and beer/drinks after rmaf.  :)

The speakers have 15" AE woofers, 4.5" custom Omega midrange drivers in 330 Hz Le Cleac'h horns and Fostex T500A MkII tweeters. ~102 dB efficiency, active bass <400 Hz.

Amp is a 2 chassis EL34 SET with 6SL7/6SN7 driver section with it's own power supply. LDR preamp. Digital server source, bring tunes however you like, I can rip/load them.

PM me or email dave at zenwaveaudio.com
