I will be using the bamboo w4's for these ones. They are really heavy so I'm going to laminate a piece of 1/8 plywood onto the foamcore to reinforce it. I'll let you know how it goes.

cheers

I messed up on my calculations for some new Cornu's
The boxes I built for the TB W4's are too small so I need to get some different drivers. Solen has 2 options- TB W3-1364 or SEAS FU10RB H1600-08. Either one would fit - one a little small and one a little large. Here are the specs for them. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, cool concept. How about using a 3d printer to print out the spiral cone (and maybe piece it together)?

That might be possible.

A 3d printer can certainly work but the material is very pricey for a large build like a 20 inch x 20 inch x 4 in deep speaker. It would cost only $4 to $5 in foam core.

I guess. Some guys have started to extrude their own plastic. So, cost is a relative term.

See...

This is scary,
just chewed about it last week.
And dreamed about using some kind of wood-based
material...
