      You nailed the first 3, and the Purples are the new ClarityCap CSA. There's also a black Mundorf in there...

        Thanks! A camera phone and poor lighting hides things well

          Yeah there’s a bit of everything in there. I had several different caps in the parts bin and also ordered some to try. I don’t want to start a cap war, but will just say I enjoy trying different caps as a part of fun of the hobby. The black mundorfs are actually electrolytic - in the tweeter circuit (gasp!)

          There are more caps than need be because I bundled caps to get to my value because I used up several I had laying around in conjunction with some new ones.

            Those CSA seem like really well made caps. The leads are long and heavy.

                  It's very nice! One thing I'd adjust is to increase the tweeter diameter a bit, gaps like that can be problematic. Black self-sealing silicone tape would work well, easy to apply and remove, and stays put.

                    Glad I got to hear them! I wish I would have heard them from the sweet spot. Being off axis the mid to treble area sounds a bit colored, other wise nice build. Congrats on the win!

                      Good point, thanks, I had thought about that as well. I could have cut them a little bigger to begin with, but the tape is a good suggestion.

                        Thanks, yeah you were seated at almost the sharpest angle. A smaller angle though is the sweet spot. About 15-30 degrees is nice and flat. On-axis has a suck out and top octave rise from the waveguide and too far out obviously the top rolls off and I assume the back wave of the mid is dominant.

                        Two nice things I notice with them in my living room is they sound good no matter where I am on the couch. Very wide sweet spot within reason, no head in a vice. They also change very little for being a dipole in regards with distance from the wall behind them. I didn’t mind making them two feet deep as they should have at least that anyway. Right now the back of the box is only 6” from the wall and they sound good and have a large image.
