  • Dayton, Peerless, NEO3PDRW build thread. Caution! Slow progress!

    I have settled on driver selection A) because I found them at a good price, and B) As promised, I selected drivers from PE catalog pages.

    The PPB cone HDS looks like a good performer having similar, smooth performance as the 830883 I used in my other dipoles, but with a much smoother rolloff and not nearly as much breakup in the higher frequencies to tame.

    I will still have to purchase the IB drivers, and hope they remain on sale until I can buy them. Too many vacations coming up.

    Here is the final design idea. No longer a mandolin shape, but more guitar shaped.



    I'm still drinking about how to attach the tweeter baffle, but I think I have it figured out.



    Something like this, but I am waiting on brushes for my router before I can tinker with the design.

    I will also try to keep the machining as simple as possible for those who want to build it. I get a little carried away sometimes and do very dumb things with power tools that is not "good practice" to achieve some things.

    Stay tuned

    Is it it driving you to drink?
