Q: is the curved sweep on the back critical or can it be modified for "aesthetic" reasons?

About to order the alpair 7s very soon.....

It is functional. Thr curve helps to make the high aspect ratio mouth look more like a square to the exiting wavefront.

I understand that there is a bit of free time on the CNC machine next week.... so assembly after that!

No. Larger ones are prving a real tuff nut to crack. Bigger drivers really require larger boxes (assumming the driver is suitable to being fitted into a horn).

Excuse me for going OT, I'm planning on building a pair of these soon, was reading through looking out for any pitfalls, or tips, when I saw the above gem.

This is genius... I wish I'd thought of that.

I see, I thought perhaps there might be a "Bruce" or "Sachiko" offspring in Mk3... How about 6.5" version?

Thanks,
Jaz

There is a revision of Sachiko for FE206En coming. Vulcan is the offspring of Sachiko.
