    Given my pragmatic nature, I'd have to go for something like "X 1/9". It's still mid-engine Italian, parts are plentiful, and $30k doesn't buy you a project requiring another $70k for the restoration. Oh, and I'd like mine with a modern engine transplant instead of the 65hp sewing machine motor they shipped with.

    Regards,

    Rob

    About $10 shipping isn't bad from Taiwan....

    This one:
    http://www.parts-express.com/beston-...eeter--277-112
    ...is NOT the dipolar version.

    Now since I've checked- it does not look like the Dipolar is not on the PE website.
    Maybe they can get it?

    And no- I tend to push the box-building complexity to make it more of a challenge for myself.
    Later,

    Very nice Ben, but please take a lot of "detailed" pics throughout the design, since I also have 2 of these woofers.

    Guess you are not a square box fanboy! (:

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Exactly. Although, in your case, I'm surprised you haven't named far more speakers after cars. Then again, when it's your day job, sometimes the novelty wears off.

    Very cool build.

    The only thing to consider is the tweeter's rear wave summation with the woofer. I think by adding a second tweeter with a z offset by the baffle width might work. I haven't figured out what to do with the impedance. I usually start like you have then go measuring.

    Sub'd for another CF build - looking forward to seeing how yours works out.

    PS - I like your taste in cars Wolf!

    Until this one- I never found the right combination of name and style. Vector was always on my list as well.....

    your Mangusta pic made me think of this car I saw down at a museum in Florida, kinda along the same lines...



    ...and also Italian ta boot!
    Looks like a neat design you have going.
