Cal and I discussed using bolts with tubes where speaker screws are.
Rather than dowels.

Ooh! That's a great idea! I never thought about that part, other than using through bolts and fender washers on the back. The tube is a great idea.

The dowels I'm envisioning near the end of the horns... to brace where the outer panels are furthest from the foamcore.

I have been collecting the corrugated plastic spindles from cash receipt printers (Dalis the girl at the post office does the actual collecting). Some of them are long enuff to be perfect for this.

Old plastic pen tubes could work too. Need snug fit or it rattles. Plumbers putty stuffed inside tube will also do the trick.

I'm 100 hundred miles away form such luxury. I knew it was a mistake moving to the Desert . Somehow, I will prevail.....

You can order them and have it in a few days. I have ordered boxes from this company before. They seem to have a wide variety of sizes at a reasonable price.

Another source for plastic tubes is those used for nails/screws to hang gutters. HD, Lowe's, etc. will have them in the gutter dept. - and cheap.

Ferrules, I never though of that. Pretty dumb for a guy in the roofing business, no?

Is anyone building the smaller 20 inch version, or all you all going for the full size 70 cm or larger? Just wanted to have some comparisons from others for my build with tc9fd's.

I got a pair of TB W4-1320 and a pair of tc9fd's on the way. I might do the minis too after the mediums are done.
