    Getting serious . . .

    I couldn't get Ed to pose for this one, but he really deserved to.

    I must have missed it but what tweeter are you using in this design? RS28A/F or something else?
    RS28F . . . listed in the tags at the bottom too.

    Well, Ryan did a little tweaking last night on the crossover, just a few part value changes, small increments. 10% reduction of the woofer inductor, and a 20% change on one of tweeter cap values. Hard to tell the difference looking at the two sweeps.

    But today, I just didn't want to stop listening. They are starting to throw a really large sound. On a few tracks, before the changes, bass seemed a bit thick, but has now tightened up dramatically. The orchestral tracks I really like, are starting to have some of the Byzantium magic. The bass/mid/treble levels are really starting to dial in.

    When Ryan told me today that he was thinking of going ahead and veneering them, I knew he was starting to fall in love!!!! :D

    Can't wait to bring these to Chicago!!

    As Ed says, it will be a hand sanded rounded edge. No router will be touching the face of that baffle.

    Looks like the WG goes right out to the baffles edge... if it does taper in right at the edge, a routing will look "uneven" as the bit hits WG where the baffles thins. I'd watch that close.

    Just breaking the edge with some hand sanding would be nice!!!

    That would get my vote. I would hand sand all edges the same including the box.

    I was thinking a tiny chamfer on the edge would look just right.

    They'll be rounded just a bit. No more than 3/8". But they're not ready for the final finish yet. They overhang the cabinet by 1/16" currently, and will be sanded to the proper size. At that time, I'll add the small round over. Any round over won't affect diffraction at this point, but it will make for a nice look when painted.
    I'm not so sure... I think the crisp edge on the front of the baffles looks nice, particularly because of the waveguide.

    Think hard before adding that roundover... tough to go back.

    I was going to suggest this but I was concerned about the effect it may have on the wave guide.

    They can't possibly sound good looking like that. Put some clothes on them. :p :D

    Seriously, those are awesome.

    This is an incredible build. Can't wait until it's completely finished, those cabinets look unbelievable.
