#2 Build the deluxe version of the Econowave and maybe she'll appreciate the great sound that by most all accounts is quite stellar..

#3 This waveguide is the better option in the Deluxe EW with the B&C250 from what I've read that's been all worked out by Zilch and Company:
QSC PL-000446GP Replacement Waveguide Horn for HPR152i 245-625

(1) No she's a witch.

(2) I used to have a nice pair of 10" Tannoy DMT studio monitors in the living room. They were amazing (to my ears) but she hated the looks and was very happy to see them gone.

(3) That horn would have been my first choice if it wasn't so wide (14"). My box is only going to be 10" wide.

There are other JBL waveguides in the same line as the 6" x 12" from the initial Econowave. I recall there was an 8x8 as well as a 6x6 discussed in the original thread. Plus there was a smaller elliptical dayton waveguide someone used successfully in a KLH 6 or 17 cabinet.

See Zilch's mega Parts Express discussion thread, particularly the "Spitwad," "4x," and "Mini" links.

It still saddens me that he's not around anymore. RIP, Zilchster.

Just had a quick look and noticed someone used the Eminence Beta 8A in one version of the Econowave mini.

Yes it's a real shame I can't ask the man himself. He seemed like a very helpful chap.

How about a SEOS 8: Fiberglass SEOS-8? - Waveguides DIY Sound Group

I think a plastic version for much less $ is coming out.

Then Maybe Eminence Delta for something in the 8" range. Won't make much bass though.

Far from econowave, and I meant it more for HT, but this might have the WAF your looking for and make more bass: System Pictures & Description

Once heard that the difference between a terrorist and a woman is that you can negotiate with the terrorist

I will also recommend the SEOS. For drivers my preference would be Radian 475PB when crossed over 2k+. In larger SEOS my experience is that this driver really shines when crossed over high (1,5k+) - in this setup I would therefore choose it over the DE250.

lol don't let her see #1

A few weeks ago I read that whole Flex thread at Parts Express, plus the Audio Karma Econowave thread.. So much info!, but I skimmed over most everything that wasn't related to the Deluxe version using the QSC WG with the B&C250, and I was also looking for anything I could find Altec related to the 416 etc..

So, lots more reading I'd say to find a smaller Econo that's up to muster..

If your pockets are deep enough you could always get her something sparkly and shiny, if that could allow some Econo Deluxe sized cabs into the living environment

Or? plan B to push the limits! = Look around and find roughly 4 cubic feet of stuff that she has about the house that you're not really fond of, and tell her it's gotta go!

Anyhow good luck with the project, lots of great info to be read on the Econo's..

Dabbler recommended that one earlier so I guess it may be worth waiting for the plastic one.

Can't find the Radian in the UK, but may be worth shipping some in from the USA if they're better than the DE250.
