I wish I knew where the better elderly (and lively) communities are that's for sure. But it's also a good experience knowing what to expect as we grow older while he stays with us. It's also an opportunity to set an example for our kids as to how we would want them to treate us when we grow old.

With audio, as probably with any science, sometimes you just sit there and look at the differences in the data, and sometimes you suddenly notice somthing that you missed before, and that sometimes might become more obvious once you know it.

My project is coming along nicely! The sealed TD15M cabinets and the PR-loaded TD15H cabinets are finished. Now I am working on something to support the Azurahorn and A-C ribbon tweeter. My plan is to start with a simple support for just the Azurahorn, and work in the tweeter later on, because the front-to-back alignment of the horn won't be known until the crossover gets worked out.

Grill frames of masonite will be built to fill the inset area around the woofer frames. The whole front of the speaker will be flush with the outer surface of the cabinet.

There's a pretty big stack of Acoustic Elegance shipping cartons sitting in the garage now.

Looking forward to some frequency response measurements!

Nice! 15" midwoofers will certainly give things that tactile touch.

Thanks for the kind words! Building the cabinets took a lot longer than I expected, but really like the way they came out.

This morning I looked at the TD15M on the spectrum analyzer, no crossover. Quite an amazing response for a 15-incher!

Simply Awesome. Im kicking myself for not getting the TD15M, I just have the TD12Ms right now. The TD12M doesn't go as low as the TD15M.

You are not only going to love the measurements but the performance is pretty good too

Beautiful finish for a difficult shape !

If you haven't decided for support of your horn yet - why not try some weird idea first ?

Beautiful Swingin' Speaker

Very impressive. Those guys sure know what they're doing. Shame I can't afford a pair, but I have 3 sets of 15"s already and can't expand my comparisons beyond that.
