Ah, that will look great. Are you going to run a tweeter?
At this point, I’m planning I’m just running a 2 way with the horn and 416. From what I’ve read the 288-8k should be good out to 16,000 cycles, which theoretically is exactly the limit of my hearing at my age. ;)
 
So what’s the timeline on these arriving stateside? I’m hoping you’ll do a full “glamour shot” session.

That’s a really good question. My intention was to have the Onkens done by the time the horns arrive for exactly that reason!

But... DHL tracking hasn’t updated all week, so I don’t know if they’re still in customs or if the tracking is just not working. Your guess is as good as mine..

If I see any update though, I’ll let you know as I know you guys are almost as anxious to see these as I am. 😉

IME, items from Germany don't get held up in customs nearly as long as stuff from the Ukraine, Russia, etc. does. Hopefully they'll be on their way to you asap!

I don’t know what you’re doing but I’d be refreshing the tracking every hour!! Super excited for ya!

Markus is a great friendly guy.... He's given me a few pointers on how to make own... I plan on doing that, but it's a project further down the road!

I look forward to seeing some pics and hearing some listenng impressions!

DHL tracking still doesn’t show any movement... so it may be a while.

But yes, Markus is a very nice guy and a pleasure to deal with.

Sadly, no update. Hasn’t moved according to tracking.

I sent Markus an email to see if this is normal and if he has any further information...

Maybe you've already done this, but try tracking your DHL shipment on the USPS website. Sometimes you'll see more detail on the receiving country's end after it is handed off at customs.

When I ordered SUTs from Sowter there was a long delay of weeks that I believe was US customs. No updates, just that they had left the UK and been handed off. Crickets until the day before they finally showed up. Literally close to a month in limbo.

FWIW, I’m waiting for a record that I ordered from a US label about a month ago. When I contacted them, they said that they’re waiting for them to make their way out of Germany. COVID-related delay, they said.

I heard back from Markus and what he’s saying jives with the last few posts as well. Packages are getting held up for weeks in customs and DHL tracking sucks.

Guess I'll just have to be patient. ;)

A sign of the times. I went to harbor freight yesterday and the shelves were half empty.
Ah yes, i hadn't thought of Harbor Freight and the impact of them having a bunch of generally cheap imported stuff. Are all those Pittsburgh tools they carry even made in Pittsburgh?
