    I like 3/4" tweeters with their top end sparkle and I find tilting up the last octave on 1"+ domes to help simulate that sound. Up 1 to 2dB at 20k.

      Maynard, your link doesn't work for me. I think this is the page you wanted to link to? You may have a redundant http at the beginning.

      Those are looking great....hope to hear them in the midwest sometime.....six days is a long commitment, but you need a break from the AZ heat sometimes. :p

        You are correct, Sir! And now, so too, is the link.

          I really liked the mids in the Malbecs. That was really refined and CLEAN. CA18's are indeed no slouch, but I've not heard those yet. I'd pick the U18 over the W18 for mids.

            I declare them done. Here is the XO if anyone is interested. Measures very well. Sounds great. Dynamic, tuneful. Very, very pleasing.

              The lowest possible F3 box alignment is not always the best alignment.

              Designing and building speaker projects are like playing with adult Lego Blocks for me.

                Ha ha! They are a bit, and the speakers are well over 100# each. So the XO's are in outboard boxes connected via Speakons. The speaker walls are 1.75" thick. Heavily braced. DEAD. Once place, I try not to move them!
