Yes but it means moving it further from the bass unit

Mine stopped asking a long time ago. Thankfully these are not recent purchases, just stuff othwerwise collecting dust.

EDIT: I was in a rush. If the HiVi dome sounds best [I use that tweeter for the livingroom TV] I will use it. I will simulate where the tweeter can actually be placed before the final decision is made. I hate to admit it though, I am still a sucker for a good paper cone tweeter. Call me old fashioned but if the Technics happens to win, I won't beat myself up over it, and I do have others I can bring to the table to make sure I'm not being an sentimental idiot.

Nope no room for a ribbon unless I move it out of the driver chamber and that means too much separation between them.

Note to self: Just because you Googled "Perfect Pentagon" doesn't mean that's what will show up on the screen. Should have checked, would have saved time on layout.

Tonight I start the channels. Pics coming soon.

So the interesting part has begun. I am making a big mess and it is going very slowly.

Cutting the channel pieces with a bandsaw works really well but everything else makes me want to cut off my...

This better sound good 'cause this is way less fun to build.

Next time I have a bright idea can someone just smack me up side 'o' the head.

No need to smack you, usually when one gets this kind of ideas there is no stopping anyone. Waiting for the end result. So, less posting more fabricating... You can post everything when done.

Wow, you are taking foam fabrication to the edge. Even if it does not sound as good as the effort applied, you have pioneered a new technique in enclosure materials and construction.

Can't wait to hear the results.
