  • Has anybody tried the SB26ADC/CDC in an off-the-shelf waveguide? Augerpro did some great work on customs for them, but I haven't seen anyone posting results in guides like the Visaton or SEOS8, which I'm guessing might need a little mod work to narrow the throat a bit. Their low-end capability looks great even with no waveguide, but some directivity control would be useful.

      An Elliptical Pete S designed for my spec. It's 1.5" deep.
      Guess xmax's age.

      My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

      • I think someone mentioned Toels Gravesen's use of waveguides at some point. This is a link to several tests he did with Scanspeak drivers using his waveguide. http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/ScanSpeak-waveguides.htm

        • RST in unmodified SEOS WG, curves to follow, I imagine
          they will be great, like the slightly modded SEOS to accept
          the RST grill.

                I am currently investigating using 1.4" "pro sound" WG/horns on 26mm domes.

                • With a .125" thick CNC faceplate the transition should be fine.
                  Perhaps even without it.

                    fixing those and adding some holes to mount the guide to the tweet should be all it takes for a
                    good fit, more soon. Click image for larger version

                    Hi Xmax, Do you have a chance to test DA25TX in Visaton Guide?
                    Thanks in advance,

                      • Here is the RST28F-4 in the Visaton waveguide. I have yet to measure it, but will post when I do.
