Why us a tweeter with the Neo 10's?

For some reason I was thinking  the red line was Neo 10s... and then the Neo 3 picked up.. but I wasn't coherent.... it is summed ...

Ah,

And I could bring the level of the Neo 10's up a bit and flatten out the response a little more, but doing so makes them a bit forward and on the bright side. Dropping the level a bit over a wide range tends to soften them and help balance out the overall power response and room responses a little better for most rooms.

WOW!

I received my Super-7 upper kit today.  Very well packed, great quality. Easy to assemble.
Everything is put together temporarily. I will prep and paint them when the weather warms up.
Impressive sound, even in a lousy room, I will play with placement on the weekend. I just
wanted to sit and listen tonight.

NICE!!!!  Congrats on getting such awesome speakers!  When they were sold at retail for $20k, they were underpriced.  People getting them for the kit price are getting the deal of the century!

Got mine last night. These are just dry fit together to see what they looked like on the dual H-frames.

Hey Mike, are you building these for yourself?  I am looking forward to your thoughts regarding these as compared to your NX Oticas.

I see your sides haven’t been rounded over, that would be my preference as well.

Best,
Ed

Ed,

My plan is to cut the sides and base out of figured cherry to match the subs. I will use the sides and base from the kit as templates. Because of this, I asked Jay to not round the sides over. The pieces will work better as patterns with straight edges.

Now I have to find some 8/4 figured cherry and save up enough money for the rest of the kit

FYI The kit from Danny comes with yarn for the tweeter. Reply #8 has pictures and instructions about how to modify the tweeter.

A Super 7 monitor and   dual h-frame fully prepped and ready to  go to paint.
This set is going to be used  as a  center  channel with a pair of  Line forces.

If it's a center channel it should look like the x-voce. :eyebrows:  That would be the biggest center channel ever!  :P

(Ok, I know that's not true.  I'm pretty sure someone used an LS-9 as a center a while back.)

Jay, does this mean that the line force is complete and available for purchase?

Thanks,

yeah man,  see    the  Line  force  thread, added  some  pics  today.
We've got  enough composite in stock to do another pair   without  having to order  more.    Will bring in  more  after  the next  pair is  spoken for.

A few updated pics of the  Super 7's build state...
Went with   House  of Kolor  "tangerine  for the  side panels,  the front baffles,  the  frontof the  sub enclosures and the  front  braces
https://www.houseofkolor.com/kolors/detail/index.html?id=S2-KBC08&ref=kolors
A couple pics






This is  a deep  kandy  color, it is pretty cool. It can be pretty  dark  in  dim light but man, when any light hits the edges, it  POPs.
Still need to   get the bases  done in  satin black  and spray out the inside of the   rear sub enclosures (satin black as well).
Getting there 

jay

forgot the front baffles

Beautiful Jay.  Looking forward to coming up to hear them some day.  I didn't realize the painting was done before gluing them up.

Thanks Jeff. The sun is poking through  the window this am and  man, it's crazy   what the HOK paint does in the sunlight.
In many cases, we paint after  asembly but  with these and the  Kandy color,  we had to go this route to keep the  color  consistant.
With the lower  rear  subs section of the  S7's being  a  separate sub assembly,  it makes it pretty easy to do,  hopefully  I still say that  after final glue up !
