Your speaker is an eye candy. Congratulations!
But why did you use chunky wooden beams left and right of the cone to hold the bars? They look great, but they are a major source of secondary sound sources (aka diffraction). Better countersink the Fostex and eliminate the wood. There must be some simpler and innocuous way to retain the bars if they are essential to you, and you will get a big improvement in clarity and focus.

Salas- most excellent point. The grills are removable for listening and are only there to keep my speaker eating dog from making this speaker his fourth victim!

I don't think you mentioned the tweeter previously, but in any event - what XO configuration are you using? IIRC, Frank is still fiddling with his.

Very nice work, anyone who hasn't sacrificed a driver to kids or pets might have trouble accepting the need for any type of protective covering. Now you only need to worry about territorial "marking"

A buddy of mine lives in a casual rural environment that includes a house full of felines. Virtually all new speaker boxes get tagged sooner or later - very hard to remove from raw plywood. He maintains he can identify the culprit by height and spray pattern - I don't think I want to know how he's collected this insight.

The 206 is run full range and I have an external 6dB crossover on the horn super tweeter using a Fostex Tin & Copper foil capacitor.

I thought I would include another picture of the building process. The bud is used for scale.

I resemble that remark... anyone need a cat. Pickup or local delivery only.

nope, small these aren't

I was wondering about the cap value - corner of filter slope and attenuation point, etc.
