  • Guess the drivers.

    Just saw this handsome five figure 3 way on Pinterest(Eikon Audio). Nice cab design. Then I thought "That woofer looks familiar. So does that mid.." Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

      They coulda at least squared up the driver holes for that cost...

      RS225 for the woofers. I'm betting the 5FE120 for the midrange. Any flavor of AMT could be the culprit there.

          On the back right above the slot vent.
          I agree with Wolf, that's kind of a large oversight on any speaker, let alone one costing quite a bit.

            I guess they figured not many people will be looking at the back side of the speakers.....Personally I would be more concerned with eliminating the screw holes in the front of the speakers.

              What are you seeing as not "squared up" ? IDK what you mean.

                The rear-firing woofer isn't "straight". The screw holes aren't symmetrical, which I agree is a pretty major oversight. Even on my budget designs, the screws holes are lined up as perfectly as possible.

                  I think they actually are and the angle from which the picture is taken provides the visual distortion.
                  As has been said that would be far to glaring an error.

                    I'm certain they are not level across. Even in the set-back angled view, there is no way they would be straight.

                    If it would be straight, the left screw hole would be on a higher latitude than the right screw hole. As I see it it's either level in the angled view, or just below the right.

                      Yeah the rear driver hardware is clearly not aligned against anything. It's just screwed in its hole wherever.

                        I went to their site and found a much better photo of the rear and it's very clear the mounting holes aren't oriented as one would expect, but that doesn't bother me in the least (and maybe that was simply a mistake on the unit used for photos, or there is a reason for it that we're unaware of).

                          That did occur to me, but visuals should be better than that. Directional mounts rotation from driver to driver, or highlighting a visual would be a valid reason, but there isn't anything but symmetrics here.
                          I'm baffled as to why.

                              I don't mind the screw holes; Eggleston Works leave them exposed too, through the baffle covers. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
