Are you talking about frequency? We are porting them for a 400-500Hz crossover, but they will play much higher in frequency.

Yes, was referring to how high were you crossing them over in your design.

We are going to Burning Amp this weekend to see other DIY stuff, and hopefully will be able to start cutting wood next weekend.

I can't wait to see how this turns out. I may want to copy the design if I could keep it about the same size as my La Scala\EV's.

The current design, I think will be about the same width as your La Scalas, but hopefully will eliminate the La Scalas as this should be a full range speaker.

Today I got all of the MDF required for a single horn cut to rectangles, but 2 pieces still need to be cut to triangles, and 2 pieces need to have the front and rear edge bevel cut so it will be flush at the front of the cabinet, and flush in the rear to hold the compression driver. I also need to get 2 woofer rings cut. I have edited the first post with the new size of the horn, and will update with pics when I start to put it together.

I will make sure I get some pics of it going together...hopefully today will go well, and we make some real progress. I am not sure how much time my new friend will have to help me today though.

Today we got the basic rectangular cabinet together, rear part holding the horn driver, and 2 sides cut, and angled. The horn is a 45 degree horn so far and will extend beyond the cabinet a bit. The sides of the horn are 33". The dimensions of the box are 40" wide 27 1/2" high and 26" deep. I am contemplating making a second section on the horn that will flare out maybe 6" more. From what i understand this will help the polar control of the lower end. By the time we got this far we ran out of time. Hopefully next weekend we can get it finished. I will take pics of the cabinet before we insert the horn inside. If all goes well it shouldn't be long before it is ready to test. :)

It is at his house...hopefully we will finish it this weekend. He thinks it will fit in the back of his SUV. Give me a call when you get a chance.

It didn't make much sense to me to just post a pic of a square box...since that is all we have done so far, plus we ran out of time. I will have pics up after we work on it this weekend.
