A lite version of GMs pipe attached. He has donated the design to the transmission line speakers site with the intention that plans will be distributed on a "by donation" basis... even without having the page up or the details of distribution worked out i've already had one donation of $25 for the plans.

I've been living with these speakers for some time now.

I'm still using an amp6-b from 41Hz audio, source is an iPod playing LossLess, or a CD player occasionally.
I've also built a 4th order active crossover for them (80Hz), having recently built some tapped horns to cover the lower octaves.
Now they're crossed over, the maximum SPL issue I mentioned earlier isn't a problem - they go loud enough to annoy my parents, and remain clear when pushed. Treble does become a little forward when you really turn it up (keeping up with a hairdryer sort of levels), but the screamy cone break-up (3-5kHz) generally associated with paper coned drivers just doesn't show itself up.
As a whole, these speakers could be done for much less money than stuff from a typical "hifi" store, but I'm yet to hear a commercial design that comes close in midrange detail.

Top job Dave.

Chris

I just did the drawing for those boxes. Tim Forman gets credit for the design.

Not that I know for sure but I doubt that he has? I'd be interested in his impressions if so also

If you're just looking to see what people think about the GPA 604III this is the place you want to be : Altec User's Board

Cheers
