        Got the xover finished. This will be the same for all 3 speakers.

          Which alignment did you settle upon from your pics in post # 16 for all 3 speakers?

            Never mind - I see my confusion, now.

            Looks great, BTW.

          Just out of curiosity, how were the drivers chosen? Not questioning the efforts/work but simply curious. If Paul is helping I am sure there is solid reasoning behind it. Just can't say I remember a center channel with a pair of 10" woofers in it.

            This is my design. I can't remember exactly how we decided on these drivers. I know I was aiming away from metal-cone drivers for the woofers and mids. I hadn't really worked much with the RS-P line, so I think that was part of it.

            The RS270 are monsters; I had used the metal-cone ones on a big WMTMW design 10 years ago and just couldn't believe how much SPL they can put out before xmax. So the "P" version seemed like a natural way to go.

            The tweeters were chosen because Rich had asked about a variety of tweeters in this price range, and the Wavecor stuck out as something hat could hold its own in terms of sensitivity and power handling--without actually being a horn.

            I recently had to give these monsters back to Rich. It was a sad day for me; although a happy day for my wife (she was relieved to have reclaimed all the space in the TV room). They sound glorious. Just gobs of output. But I was also able to dial in a great amount of precise imaging with the tweeters. I'll officially publish the design in the coming months.
            Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

              Oops, sorry about that. I had just read the post about Curt...corrected now.

              Those are some very nice tweeters. I have the Anarchy MTM's that Pete designed and they will definitely keep up.

              Look forward to seeing the finished product!

                I love them, and I can only imagine the sound of music coming out of them.

                  I just wish I had room for them.

                  They look like they sound awesome!

                  Twin-10" Paper RS Series Woofers . . . Mmmmm . . . If they sound as good as the RS180P's I would buy them anyways - and figure out how to fit it all in here later - impressive stuff.

                  Thanks, Mr. Carmody!

                    The only issues I've found on the RS270 is that the boxes are massive! I actually have a quad of the aluminum.

                      You can make the boxes appear smaller by cutting a hole in the floor and using the space between the joists . . . Where there is a will, there is a dead-man walking a fine line concerning WAF . . .

                        Some updates for the LCR's. Added some inner dampening. I have the crossovers built and ready for the drivers. Also painted the MDF flat black with 2 coats of prime and 2 coats of flat black. The front Zebra wood did not get stained just 2 coats of poly to get things sealed and stronger.

                          That wood is exquisite and all those other thingies are just icing on the cake.

                          You know - that's the part about this hobby that I really dislike - the visual part that people see and appreciate so much more than the technical aspects of making them sound so good.

                            Crossover design for my speakers - YouTube

                            Thought it might be easier for all to watch a video of the crossover design.
