The gap is in the 2 to 3 mm range. When using Joel's wave guides I hot glued some coins, dimes to nickles, for spaces to the back of the guide and put some thin foam an inch or so around the hole to make a seal. You can adjust the effect by how thick the coin is and how big of a ring of foam you use. I ended up using the home made guides I started with as the mdf seems to impart a little less edge to the sound. The Bolser mod makes it where you can toe in the speakers more like you are used to.
I live about 10min from DFW airport. Be sure and bring a couple of cd's that you are familliar with. If you are a musician try to make it by on Wed night or Sunday afternoon when some friends and I get togehter play music.

Hi Guys

Just a quick question - which is the best place in the Netherlands to buy Peerless 830875 Drivers and Peerless 810921/Scan-Speak D2608 Tweeters?

I used to recall a company - but not their name - and been searching in vain for their website.

Cheers, Joe R.

Default Crossover with Jantzen inductors.

This is latest incarnation of my crossover with Jantzen inductors in the 1.8 and .33mh positions. In series with LF and MF pairs only as I felt the lower series resistance was more beneficial in these locations. They weigh about 2 or 3 kilos now. Lots of copper!

I do plan to redo them but it's fairly time consuming and I want to upgrade some of the components so I wont do a layout until I have all the parts that will comprise the final version. I want all the components to fit perfectly on the pcb. I'll post the layout once it's done in actual size so that anyone with a laser printer and some photo paper should be able to etch their own.

That is a nice use of that material. Looks very modern.

What did you use to attach the mesh to the speaker?

Hi guys,

Yes they look a little like electro statics i think they sound nicer !

I fix the grilles on with small screws through holes in the mesh, i have been meaning to replace them with black screws to match
