Those are way cool, Wardsweb. They'd be high WAF at my house 'cause they look like furniture.

Wardsweb,
I was watching silently until you posted. I will happily take which ever one you are not using.

Quick question, what kinda room minimum are we talking?

Wardsweb, those are both beautiful!

My brother had some Olympuses. So did one of my bosses, with Bozak B-410s for the rear channel!

Hey Wardsweb, nice to see some of your work. I know those curved cabs - glass bead filled walls made of twin kerfed panels? NICE

Default Bass Sorted - MIDRANGE NEXT

Think an 18 per side for bass is just the right amount of overkill Driver to be announced nearer to build. (Please keep in mind this is subject to approval of the bank manager )

So on to the midrange

Is a 10inch really too big? What should I look for in a driver for killer mids - drum/gun shot speed to catch you in the chest........

Recommendations so far:

Celestion TF1020
Fane 10-300 http://www.faneinternational.com/dow...0300_Specs.pdf

I like the lower price 'cos the bass drivers are a killer on the pocket

Any more suggestions?
