Xaborus not to worry - no offense taken and very happy to read your informative post. That's the beauty of diy - make it how you want and be in charge. Then make it again if you want to try it a different way. Get valuable input along the way from helpful folks who've been around the block a time or two.

Dig that transparent black look. So many options.

Too early for meaningful impressions - still adapting and haven't cycled in other amps yet. There was definitely a change in the first 2 days and right now I would not call it warm at all. Think I will need to try the 12ohm resistor and stuffing quantity. Will say that I turned it up to 11 last night to show it off for some youngsters and it certainly does impress at high volumes!

I think they're beyond good and maybe even great. But I want to spend more time getting to know them with various configurations. Changed the amp tonight and I'm getting some new character. For sure, the mid/tweet is a star.

Position near the rear wall, and proximity to the side walls will influence tonal balance, reinforcing LF.

The big woofer is pretty stiff, out of the box. A couple hours fiddling around will get you sorted...

Part of the reason the A26 design works with such a low Crossover and such a simple one is the use of a 1.5 inch tweeter. They have the right acoustic output where you need it. The only one I could suggest other than the Seas is the Audax TWO34 XO 1.3 dome.
I say don't mess with it. The simple elegance of the design is part of its appeal.

How does A26RE4 looks like compared to old 25F-EW? It would be interesting to compare...

Been using them daily since I hooked them up and the initial build euphoria has not worn off at all. Still need to connect up some key amps and torture test. The larger A26 is blocking vertical growth of my tower of diy electronics, so need to shuffle things around. One thing I find particularly impressive is the quality when the volume knob is twisted to the right - and this from a humble Wiener Pro. Super smooth and non-fatiguing.

More when I can, driven by Pass designed M2 clone and VFET, and hopefully also even an F6.
