They are sorta like upside down Metronomes... did you model the quadratic taper?

Thanks Dave...I didn't model the quadratic taper, just designed them by ear. Flipped around like a Metronome with the driver at the narrow end improved the imaging,but gave a leaner midbass...with the driver mounted on the wide end makes them sound more meaty in the mid bass.

Here is a pic from the listening position...I must admit these sound much better than the Omegas on the stands.[IMG]Click the image to open in full size.[/IMG]

Those are kool! The larger top surface definitely increases WAF. She has more room on which to put quaint c**p.

Great job! They're a nice clean looking build.
I'm assuming they're veneer over ply/mdf?
(IIRC, there was a commercial offering that featured tapered cabinets. Castle maybe)

I don't think the Castle was quite as dramatic....

Thanks Doorman,

They are made from 3/4" mdf with an oak veneer(the flash makes them look more cherry/orange)...I generally design using solid woods,but solid woods change shape too much,not allowing a truly uniform build.

They sound great. They were our first attempt at designing our own with hornresp and autocad. Their frequncey response is about 70hz-15khz and they are the most sensitive(efficient), dynamic, detailed, and just downright real sounding speakers I've ever heard. Checkout more pics and discription here first try at designing our own horns
