      Good Lord Javad! Your builds never cease to amaze. Those Horns and subs together look like they're going to swallow someone with sound! If I tried something half this big I'm fairly certain my wife would either divorce me, or murder me... maybe both! Keep up the good work and I'll keep living vicariously through your experiments!
      Haha thanks Keith! They are pretty incredible to listen to, they can do things with the music I've personally never heard, Michael Jackson Billy Jean, a song I've heard a million times, is a totally new experience for example =) My wife is awesome, she is someone who recognizes my passions and let's me run with them, for that I'm very thankful!

        One last touch on these, I wanted to do some nice speaker wires that always stay with this set. I started with 6 strands of 18g cooper wire.

        We were all out of unicorn dust silver wire at 034Motorsport so this had to do.



        I twisted the 3 wires together as positives and negatives then twisted those together. The fun part was passing all that through some 1/2" clear shrink tuning, I should have used 3/4" but I wanted it to be tight.

        Some ends have banana plugs and others have spade connections.

        These are the main wires that go to the sub XO input



        I cleared over the bodies to insulate them









        Then the wires out of the XO into each sub and up to the midbass XO





        And installed







        Horn L pad finalized, this configuration allows quick and easy swapping out of resistors to adjust the L pad w/o any soldering.





        Thanks!

            How does Radian compares to the likes of B&C?

              I'd say they are equal in quality and performance, I've been very impressed with this 745PB, it happily plays from 500hz up and at 120+dB, clean and clear. Build quality of both is excellent, and the pair measure almost identically to each other.

                I think that you'll need to breathe in phase with the music.

                  Thank you for the input. I'll consider them next time I do a project.

                        LOVED reading through this thread! Maybe in my next house, with a BIGGER listening room!

                            I wish I lived closer, I would love to hear these. Huge speakers can be a visceral experience. Well done Javad.
