    Given the contents contribution to the hobby, thank god it's still going. We certainly don't need any more 5" dome tweeter two ways now do we. There;s something worth givin up the ghost.

      Congratulations!! You scored Post #1001 -- thank you for your contribution. ;)

      This thread is alive and well; hundreds of DIYers all over the world are designing and building EconoWaves according to the precepts documented here. Its role as a reference resource is reflected in the view count.

      Its going to get worse...I've finally figured out how to put zma and fdr files into PCD. Now just to make my own such files from measurements....

        Hopefully the hating is a joke? Otherwise its odd.

              I have fiddle farted around with doing this for 2 or 3 years now, I'm with in purchasing the Zilch recomended mic pre and some cables away from measuring. I just wanted to play with zma and fdr files of others and get a little up to speed on PCD. Then the measuring learning curve begins, and how to make my own fdr and zma files. Since the B&C DE 250 and QSC guide has already been done, I just need to come up with measurments to make fdr and zma files for the JBL 2235H.

              Then I should be able to tweek my existing crossover somewhat better. I have not bought a router yet, I'm not placing anymore projects in front of measuring.

                  Yes, using drivers anyone can purchase from PE, designs anyone can build, in Dayton prefinished cabs....

                        Zilch, Im going to start making some baffle moldings but I have a couple of questions.

                        Assuming Im building them for your Econo waveguide deluxe build how far back do I need to mount the woofer?

                        Im building them assuming the woofer is rear mounted but I can go with any thickness on the baffle, Im going to use 1 1/4" round on the front.

                        I guess I could also move the woofer up closer to the waveguide but should I cut off the bottom lip of the waveguide or cut off the extra 1 1/4" of round over that exists on the top lip of the woofer mouth?

                          I look forward to seeing your design. You might want to try out some options in SketchUp and solicit opinions from the usual players by posting a bracket of them; there appears to be considerable range available within which to "work" this design element....

                            Thanks Zilch, Good info. Wanting to use the 1 1/4" round over isn't going to help the CTC :(

                            My sketchup skills suck so its always tough for me to do graphics. I would rather just mock up some baffles and figure it out. Im going to try and build two different ones this weekend.

                            The front is easy compared to figuring out how to get the back of the waveguide molded then matching it to the front.

                                Zilch, is this still your protocal for obtaining FRD files for use in PCD?

                                Thanks,
