They do not look that strange in real life...

Here's a closeup shot. Some observations:

- The seas driver is beautiful
- The 10F is tiny !
- The passive xo (this is the hybrid version) is huge !

So which is it? Damped U frame (cardioid) or H (N) frame (dipole)? Or do you have plans for both ?
It's a dipole. I must have missed on place where I still referred to the u-frame. Will correct. Thanks for noting it.

[edit] corrected.

I thought I read somewhere that you were contemplating a change back to the u frame. What was your conclusion?

Exactly. Whis is why I went to the all active system and a single, 8" lower mid.

I was, for a while. I was not satisfied with the performance of the dipole woofers. Then I loaded the XXLS woofer in the N-frame dipole and they performed as expected. So I took another look at the SLS N-frame dipole and found it came down to a couple of bi-quad coefficients which some how got corrupted when I loaded them into the miniDSP. Once corrected things worked out as I had anticipated. So N-framer dipole it is.

That makes sense really. Looking at the passive xo I would reckon it's one expensive bit !


These are not mine so I could not integrate it with my subs due to the lack of xml file. So I had been listening panel only. I will figure out a way.

if you have a minidsp you could put it before my active crossover for the Note. Make one output of the minidsp a pass through just to get the miniDSP delay and use that as the input to my active crossover.Then use the panel out for my active crossover to driver the Note panel amp. Use the second output of the miniDSP to configure the woofer system and drive the woofer amp directly off the miniDSP. The woofer should have an LR4 acoustic LP at 120 Hz.

In fact I reckon they look pretty cool in that special DIY prototype finish with the masking tape holding the tweeter waveguides on !
Good thing there is no photo of the crossover put together in matching style.
