Dave,
Sorry for the delayed response; my wife and I met some friends for dinner and I just returned.
Very credible builds. The two domes we built started with poles set to support platforms upon which the domes were built. Each was a 5/8 dome and, as with yours, went together very quickly after the components were built. Cedar shake shingles were used to skin them. In one dome we placed a row of clear panels that tracked the moon's rise and setting(it was the '60s after all). The tedious part was building the sub-assemblies but the results very gratifying. The domes served as bedrooms and the areas below as the living rooms and kitchens.

Ray

PS
My wife just relinquished the computer.
Nice, simple structure...VERY well done! The junction boxes are a good idea. I tried them with welded plates but it was not feasable; sub-assemblies made of wood were cheaper and could be assigned to helpers.
I think Buckey would be proud.

I stand corrected. Triangle it is.
Humble pie doesn't taste too bad

If consensus states I should add strength to the "holey" panel I will coat it with a "resin" as Jackinnj suggested.
Let me know please.
I apologize for unintentionally misdirecting this thread.


Ron

Ron,
Absolutely NO apology warranted!!! Honey comb cells are indeed VERY strong! We are here as Dave has indicated many times to share information not to compete in one upsmanship!

Going back and looking there are some places with decidedly little meat between the holes... it might well do to resin at least those bits up.

Default Inside in or Inside out?

Any potential issues with building the X-overs on a small sheet of ABS plastic? Thought about static electricty but no moving parts here. Parts held with zip ties and ABS held in place with velcro for possible removal later?

I remember reading somewhere (can't find it now) that it makes a difference which side of the inductor coil the + goes into and out of, In on the inside or out on the inside? Anybody know for sure?
Coils at 90* angles of course.

Thought they looked familiar. I really should give those things a shot at some point, Especially since the SIs are supposed to work nicely on a (relatively) narrow baffle, so I might stand a fighting chance of getting them into the house

I wouldn't bother... the 15 really struggles to get up to the horn... i am eagarly awaiting the 10 (or to try any number of other 8 or 10" coaxes -- a set of 10" Tannoys out of the Kensington(?) would be interesting too.
