I think you build with your heart and measure with your ears. Bravo.

Wow !! you build some awesome looking equipment. I would use my heart to build them and my ears to listen , if i could find some info on how they work and what does each part of the amps and speakers cover.. I have an understanding of each one , but not a exact understanding of the effect of the parts in relationship to one another. Is there a book that you might know about that can teach me and get me started on building amps and speakers? thanks , would love to hear the items you built...

Yes, I measure with my ears.
Equipment for reference only, but sound detail, tone, sound state....I trust my ears.

Default Degree of cuts

Wow! Great looking speaker! Question at what degrees do you cut the inner curved slats at? Would it be 45* or 22.5* degrees and or is there a formula for it? Oh yeah another question, I have a pair of old school Utah 8 " inch full range speakers, you think I can use these as the pair to go into the speaker build, instead of using the Fostex. Thanks KoHo.

Hi, total 9 pieces of plywood and cut 99 degree. glue it together become a curve.
I'm no sure is it good for old school Utah 8,
depend on the speaker Q factor, this horn had a lot of bass, better for some drive had lower Q.
Thank.

It look like coaxial drive, single point design, twin paper cone away musical and detail, don't know how big for the magnet, capacitor may need upgrade for better high Frequency, under $140, best buy!
