I moving head in stubborn fashion. The jig problem is no big deal. I will work it out. Be gone most of next week, so will be a while.

@ZM, thanks for the link. Buidling it is the fun part and how I learn what little i learn.

@Ra7, tthanks for the info. Indeed it does seem like the easiest to manipulate. Ibam strongly considering it.

I wasn't aware that design details were ever published.

The Exemplar is/was an excellent sounding speaker. The last version I heard was at the final VSAC in 2008 (?) and it was absolutely excellent!

I certainly wish I had a pair. But I don't believe any plans have been released.

Best Regards,
TerryO

but why would you need plans ? on the picture it looks pretty straightforward to me

The speaker evolved over a number of years and versions. However, if it's easy for you, that's great. Perhaps you'll publish the plans of your version?
I for one would appreciate it.

From glancing at it, it seems different in that there are no straight sides and it doesn't vent to the front, possibly being sealed. I could be remembering wrong, but did GM suggest that horn loading of the woofer needs a big room. I am going to be sitting 10-12ft away. I was looking at a front loaded born setup the other day that used the 515-16g, I think. Seems like the ceramic versions. An get away with smaller boxes. There are some 515-16g on the bay, but they don't seem to do as well S the 8g version that GM recommended earlier. Won't get the 414's until Tuesday, so hopefully I can redo horn jig and get at least one done. Be nice to start working with real stuff
