Default Wood cone speakers for Frugal-horn or other DIY

I'm making a frugal horn (www.frugal-horn.com) to go with my amp. These speakers use a single driver and rely on expertly designed wave guides to reinforce the sound. You can have a very low power source and still have a decent sounding speaker. Best of all it's a diy.
I'm putting together a group buy for wood cone speakers. Of course they have some draw backs because the increased mass of the cone. However they look fantastic.
Each 6.5 inch, 8 ohm speaker driver will cost you $40 plus delivery to your house. I need a minimum order of 50 but I'm willing to buy the last 10 on credit and sell them later if I can get 40 paid for in advance.
Please see this link:

If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask. These retail for $79.99.
Check out the group buy for a speaker as cool looking as your amp.

Are you building a frugel-horn or one of the horns on the frugal-horn site? A 6.5" speaker is not going to fit in a frugel-horn.

Sorry,
I'm building one of the other ones, from the spawn series, the Mikasa. Also,I'm almost done with the Oliva. I'm just heading out to the garage to put on a coat of stain. The Olivas will be done in the next few days. The Mikasa will have to wait for the group buy for a wood horn or make due with something else.
Are you one of the people who created these?
Thanks,
Spencer

Mikasa is also designed for 4 1/2in drivers. Specifically the FE126E. This wood-coned job might fit (just) but the enclosure isn't really big enough. Based on a brief look at the driver specs., it should go into the Hiro box. Of course, there's only one way to find out how well it'll really work...

I must have my Spawns mixed up. My next plan is for a 6.5 inch driver'd model. I'm afraid all the sanding is getting to my brain.

I found that plastic wood covers a lot of sin.
