awesome job they look great!
do tell did you use any damping/stuffing in the driver compartment or liner along the first segment of the duct?


Thanks! Right now I've got a square of 3/8" thick carpet padding glued to the surface just behind the drivers, to attempt to stop any reflections that might come back out the cone. I believe it made a slightly audible difference when I compared with/without between the left and right. So they both have that now. Otherwise I don't have any other padding in the horn at all. I would like to get them setup properly in the room and then compare response while adding/removing padding a little at a time.

Seems like the more I read, the more it seems padding is not an exact science. Guess I'll just test and tune!

sometimes stuffing makes audio magic other times it leads to a 40 of scotch....

After quite a bit more time listening and using a UMIK mic to help set up the listening position correctly I can confirm the clarity from these speakers is fantastic! Now that I've been bit by the "bug" I've been wanting to learn more and build a pair of subs to help augment these horns.

Since I'm a relative newbie I've been looking at Joe's critical Q sub build, and have read quite a few opinions on the pros/cons of it. Overall I think the size and use fits my application and living room, so I'd like to give it a try. As the peerless XLS cannot be purchased anymore I'd like to use the Dayton RSS315HO in this sealed enclosure with roughly 42L volume. The plan is to use a miniDSP + the UMIK to EQ/filter the subs from the mains. The question I have is about plate amps... It looks like the dayton SA240 plate cannot be purchased anymore and a lot of their new designs have had higher failure rates. Any suggestions on a good quality plate amp I should use for the sub? Let me know your thoughts!
