Bob,
I don't get it. Do you mean that your styrofoam will hold blade as you push the foam core through it like a tablesaw?

The suspense is killing me! So 6L6 and Cal have identical setups.

No, not identical, my horns are 30" square with a 4.25" tall (deep?) throat.

The Foamcore Cornu spiral works very well for getting surprisingly big and good bass out of such a small driver. If you are interested in making an enclosure with this technique and materials, I recommend it!

Here you go. Cronus in background.

Blade & Block

Sorry for the lighting. Just used double sided tape on the angle.

6L6, you sound disappointed ?????

I'm running a couple passes of this system on the Vifas right now. I was skeptical if they could handle full big band stuff, but they are handling everything I throw at them with flying colors. Kudos to Vifa - again !

I found they excel at big band especially brass and woodwinds. My earlier impression with Harry Connick's band was exceptional sounding, the speed and attack of the brass was really cool. I can't seem to get a good impression when playing big classical orchestras. Chamber music is great, but complex classical orchestral stuff no.
