    I finished mine a few days ago. I've listened to them for a few hours, and plan on more listening time. VERY happy with them!
    Thanks for the design Chris!

      First crossover mocked up before soldering. Yes I ordered the parts before realizing there was an updated crossover!

        So Mike, if that's an old Advent or AR peeking into the picture, you know it "needs" an Econowave update. :D

          You'll still like 'em.
          Those are the ones I'm still listening to.

            Yeah i am sure they will be fine. By the time i finished both crossovers it was to late at night to really listen but the one i finished earlier sounded good. Can't get over the bass response! I may redo the crossovers tonight i only had small guage wire to make the leads with on hand last night.

              Some more progress. Almost to the point where I'll have to make myself stop listening to them and start prepping them for a paint job. These things definately punch well above their weight class!

                  The one that is peeking into the picture is a Dynaco A25. That guy is going to stay as is. However, the Econowave idea has been scratching at the back of my mind lately; I have a set of Infinity Qa speakers I took the Emit tweeter off and now they only have the 10" woofer. They really seem to be good candidates to get an Econowave upgrade. I just need to decide what horn to use on them and how to cross it. As it sets, the woofer was running full range. Hmmm.....:rolleyes:

                      Where'd you get the foam you're using to line the inside of the cabinets?

                        Looks like mattress topper.

                          Thanks for the comments. I look forward to seeing the ntn build. I took these over to my parents house for them to have a listen and my dad may want a set of ntn's for his front channels and a set of standard nano neos for surrounds. The foam is a mattress topper from Walmart. It was easy to put in with spray adhesive. Thanks to Chris also for cleaning up my camera phone pics!

                            Here's a list of members who I THINK have built one of these ND105-4 designs. If you're not on the list, please add your name.

                            11 Nano Neos (that I know of - not counting mine):
                            kornphlake
                            johnnyravo
                            ---k---
                            mikejennens
                            cliffburge - "This is an good design with high value."
                            lostboy77 (soundbar? - built the Pico Neos though!)
                            justinL - black finish
                            patrickm - tall slim tower version
                            Drew - "much bigger than they have any right to sound."
                            MLS - "image very well and would blow somebody away when you tell them that they cost less than $ 75"
                            Tim - (user - "tdv") front vented, hidden ND105 frame, IMO the best looking Nano Neos yet

                            5 on deck:
                            ericJ - XO done, hard at work
                            DIYNut - XOs done
                            jmw - PE sent wrong caps
                            zomby
                            Soundslike

                            fastbike - lots of parts?


                            7 ntn:
                            hyperlite
                            cooper
                            django
                            (patrickm)?
                            cliffburge - CC (horizontal) version
                            isaeagle - ". . . they keep asking about the sub. NO SUB ON!"
                            GregK (out of the blue! - NO warning!) - "They sound very nice."
                            Xtreme - finished, and they're GONE already!
                            "I am VERY impressed with the sound . . . incredible to believe that these are only two 4" drivers . . . fills the entire room with very detailed, excellent sound and enough bass presence to not need a sub."

                            "These sounded better than the RM40T's I bought a while back, and those have a $1150 MSRP. The staging is excellent, and every detail is perfectly reproduced. Nothing short of spectacular. I kept forgetting that my sub was turned off. I ran a few bass tests tones through these and they can definitely play musically down to 32hz. I seriously had to check my receiver's settings 3 times to make sure my powered sub was off."

                            "The . . . response is very flat with no undesirable peaks, and they sound VERY large . . . fills the room and with such elegance and accuracy that you really have to hear them to believe it. I'd rather scrap my entire Polk Audio Monitor 40 based home theater and use these two instead"

                            3 up next:
                            Herman Trivilino - almost done
                            cwad - XO's done
                            justinL - thinkin about it
                            fastbike - gettin' close to starting

                            Thanks guys.

                            Chris

                              My ntn's are indeed "in progress". Albeit slow. I have all the parts, and am puttering on the crossovers.

                                Haven't built the ntns yet. Ordering the the parts for the updated crossover. Also ordering another pair of drivers because I think I still want to build the original Nanos (I currently have everything to build 2 pairs of original Nano's).

                                If anyone wants, I have a Sketchup package for the ntns. Meets Chris' design volume. Have also modeled the box in Woofer Box...
                                I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.
