      Never even entered my mind, actually. They are on my list of things to switch to, but now that I have finally found spades that are worth a poot, I may stick with old fashioned 5-way binders.

      In this particular case, though, it was a cost/inventory reduction decision to go with the terminal cups.
      Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

        Never liked terminal cups because you can't get your fingers in there to tighten the wire nuts down. But since I've come around to more sensible ways of thinking and started using cheap banana plugs I guess terminal cups would be fine. They're still not the prettiest. Having said that I think I'll give the Speakon guys a shot, they do seem nice.

          Speakon FTW. They are awesome. Just started using them. Only thing is they definitely aren't as aesthetically pleasing as other options.

              Yeah, they're not designed to be aesthetically pleasing, LOL. But if the speakers in question are going to be moved about much, and that movement involves disconnection and reconnection by you or anyone else, Speakons are the best solution by far. Connections are done in seconds (a simple push and twist), with no chance of shorting the cable or connecting the speakers in reverse polarity. Even better if the speaker in question is being biamped.

                Just an FYI, I also have an all GRS 2-way coming.

                  ok, I know you say you aren't reviewing your own stuff anymore, but can you compare the sound of this three-way to the sound of say... the original cabrini, just for reference? I am still looking at a build with the 8" poly and this looks like a great project.

                  either way, good job! looking forward to the up and coming two-way also

                    Better up top due to the use of a better tweeter and dedicated midrange. The 8" is somewhat less satisfying than the 6.5", which I am currently working with. The 3-way would excel in a tower setting, however.

                        thanks, that is very helpful. I am guessing a sealed tower, 1 cu ft would do it.

                          JR,

                          Did you measure, have FR / Impedance graphs for the mid? There's a thread where that would helpful ...

                              Hey JR I just ordered the parts to build these. Need something to do while it's cold out. Looking forward to listening to these. Thanks for posting this.

                                Wow, blast from the past here - these speakers are still going strong in a rehearsal basement, actually. Once in awhile I get to go listen to them, and I still like them.
