      is this what your were talking about with the 90x90? It appears to be the same size as the eminence.

            I don't think I have ever quoted myself before, but what the heck. I just measured my existing cabinets and realized the old Vals will make perfect 'sub stands' for the Ewave HPB+. The CD will be at ear level while sitting. little vintage with a lot of new.
            I am listening in mono to my one prototype and still cannot get over just how good this 'kludge' sounds. I can't wait to get the tweaked cabinet done and playing.

The one I have done sounds pretty good - thanks to Zilch (I am fortunate to live an hour away so I get to visit the master in person.)
            But the cabinet is really a huge compromise and needs to go so I am thinking the not so econo-HP plus my 2235's in B380 sub clones my be the way to go.

                      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

                        Good job Zilch.

                        Although your timing is slightly less than optimal. :p



                        Dang it.

                          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....

                          • 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....

                              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
