    Thanks Z. They might be my main speakers in a couple months. No work for 8 months now and just signed the house back over to the back. We have 6 months to get out. If we end up in an apartment, they will be it.

    Would you recomment just using the crossover you posted for that WG?

    Edit: is there a better WG that you would recommend for that space? I have 7" x 5.25" to work with with no trimming.

    FAT™ coaxes an additional 2.5 dB out of them, which may get this combo to 94 dB.

    I don't see any issues, either, thus far; if K6.5 works, these will too.

    [They're gonna rock, looks like.... :D ]

    The spec'ed response of the B&C 6NDL44 shows really good extension and to my untrained eye, minimal breakup. The bottom end response looks ideal for a 2.5 way, though the spec sheet doesn't say anything about the test box.

    The basket looks really strong. Now I want those...LOL.

    You're just going to have to try it, Dennis.

    Since you use those nearfield, I don't think there's any detriment to the narrower dispersion of the little Selenium waveguide in your application.

    Shop around a bit further, and you'll find it just under $100 street price.

    Soon as you move up from D220Ti, in neodymium, especially, you get to this level pretty quickly....

    I want to make FAT™ happen here, now that PCD has shown how.

    Those'll also fit with the 6" waveguide in TW-0.38 for a truly diminutive (Indignia-size) package....

    Re: Flex Your PCD Mettle:

    Maybe this is a better place to post this project and question. I have been thinking about eWaving my Best Buy Insignias. First thought about using the 6x6" JBL WG but it was just a tad to big. I could make it fit, but it would take a lot of trimming. Then I saw Zilch's project using the Selenium HM17-25 and that WG would not need trimming to fit.

    So below is a pix of the Insignia and an FR for the woofer only.

    How do all think this would work out sound wise? I know I can build it, but would like to get some opinions as to the match up between the woof and WG.

    Too cool!
    It looks so good I am considering giving up my mini 4430 project and going with the taller cabs for 2.5 way. They really look sweet, Zilch.

    Clearly, you like the Celestions. Can't hide that. :p

    EconoWave Mini S-6 - First Listen

    Y'all know I don't do "How's it sound?" and I'm certainly not into hype, but in the course of gathering .frd and .zma data last night, I couldn't resist hooking it up to the prototype crossover sitting on the test stand from the previous S-8 builds for a quick listen.

    OH, MAN! The big boys with custom drivers in their arsenal certainly know how to make this happen. I put Celestion CDX1-1731 on the little 6" square waveguide, dialed the L-pad flat within +/- 2.5 dB, and now can't wait to get this little guy into PCD and optimized....

    Re: Flex Your PCD Mettle:

    The entire drill's about enabling others to do cool stuff with the concepts here. I'm always pleased to see DIYers running with what I detail, but it's just as gratifying watching others explore their own approaches, as well, having broken down the barriers, kicked open the gates, and pushed them through....

    Good job Zilch.

    Although your timing is slightly less than optimal. :p



    Dang it.

    Even nicer in the Dayton curved-side cabs (I have a piano black pair), but we've certainly moved up a notch or two from roadkill here.... :D
