Looks great, Rich!

Cheers,

Thanks Pete!

Jay did a great job on them as well as the 2x12 cabinets.

OK so it looks like I have the right amp, the only thing is I need a slightly higher XO freq like on the HX. I am using it strictly for music.


For this speaker application I want balanced inputs and the higher XO frequency to integrate with the dspMusikLCD digital crossover for direct drive of each speaker element.

The A370PEQ will play up pretty  darn high in  an OB configuration.  Use the AvR/12 slope and you'll  be amazed at where it will reach..  Danny regularily crosses around 200Hz using this  slope setting.
How high do you need them to play  ?

How  high do the  HX series reach  rich ?

Jay,
The HX300 amp says 200Hz @ 12dB/Oct.   That should be the -3dB point, so higher frequency for -6dB.

Latest pictures of The Monoliths new planar baffles from Jay. Also one with the servo subs.

Looking forward to building these when the flat packs arrive!

Looking good Jay! 

Rich, anxious to see what you come up with, I’m currently running NX Ottica MTMs in a similar footprint.

Best,
Ed

Ed,

Once I have the baffles will be a quick glue-up and then install the planars for measurements and then dspMusikLCD crossover update from the original version with the old open baffles.

Just moded the next pair of GR Neo3's today with the yarn.  Ready with those and the pair of BG Neo10's to get the baffles setup for listening with the 2x12 H-Frames servo subs.

Waiting on the new baffles from CNC to use. 

No schedule at this point.

Latest test baffle from Jay for the Monoliths.  Will be interesting to see the response with the latest waveguide.

The final version of the baffle is at CNC to cut baffles.   

Waiting on an update of when they will be cut and ready to send them for finishing.  After that ship here to load drivers.
