I assumed that the horn mount allows moving along the z-axis to accomplish such. I know I will maintain such flexibility until it is aligned. I won't stretch to the use of coax CDs. Even a single CD will allow me plenty of room for "improvement" over my last effort.

Ed ... had me concerned or a minute. I only bring up because my large mid horn will stick out quite a ways (16") and look a little weird. Zene

Zene, The possibilities I like include the elegant integration of support for the horn-cd combination and plenty of real estate within the cabinet for a tapered line QW or back-loaded horn...TBD

That's how movies got invented. Projecting an image onto the drapery concealed the weird looking speakers, thereby entertaining one's date who might not have been a music buff. No?

Exclamation Wires

Lynn, and Bud .
A relevant ( hopefully ) post here .
If you think you've sorted the speaker wire issue with Bud's Litz/cotton specials , I've got bad news for you !
Just bought some Tellurium Q Blue speaker cable, and now have some 'Black' on loan which is running-in and playing as we speak .
This company is making waves here in the UK , 5-star reviews on all their stuff . The Black costs about 300 for a 3m pair , unfortunately, for us DIY fans ...

My comments here if you are interested :
Colin Wonfor - Page 3 - World-Designs-Forum

I could imagine a fascinating conversation ( about heatshrink ? ! ) if Bud and Colin got together !

Can anyone point me to any discussion regarding the choice of a 4.5 - 5 cubic foot cabinet size for the 416 driver? I spent a couple of days catching up on the thread and I didn't see it.

The reason I ask is that the original Onken was over 12 cubic feet.

Err.. no.

Aperiodic. Or perhaps "mostly" sealed.
