    This is the first time I've seen a slot loaded woofer like this. Where did you get the design?

    What FR driver did you use? Nelson has the plans set up for a 8" driver. I bet a Betsy and the Alpha 15a would sound pretty good. And very inexpensive too.

    EDIT: Looks like a AN classic 8 ?

    DSC_0322.JPG Added a bit of color to the Home Depot birch. Walnut & cherry. Wife doesn't like the black drivers. I need to get some dark wood for the baff or buy some Lowthers. They have creme colored cones. Yesterday using the table saw I got a bit careless and have a few nice cuts to back it up. Won't do that again.

    Timing is everything. ;)

    I have the PM2a drivers in Medallion cabinets and love them. They do require some care and feeding to perform at their best.

    without a doubt and not a problem. I would love to tackle these.

    Glad you have all your fingers. I almost did that too on my last speaker build. Looking great.

    thanks for the link. Thinking about conical horns these days also or even exponential horns. Way over my head but need something to do.
