thank you
all 4 drivers are woofers playing the same bass
that is the trick of 2.5 ways
think of it like a 2way with enhanced bass/midbass

I guess it just sounds better that way
the 'makeover' may have been needed as well

and SB might have better commercial value too
(I know Joe can't say it like that, but I guess no point in denying it)

drivers availability, and like tinitus said commercially more viable as SB Acoustics is the go to brand for current speakers manufacturers (less $$$ for the tech and quality)

Can anyone recommend if there will be much of an audible difference with an internal crossover rather than external? Can't seem to find much about this in previous posts

Should be no audible difference but if made internal, tweaking crossover component values or upgrading to higher spec components is much more difficult. I've made several component changes to mine over the last two and a half years. I would recommend external.

Joe & Co.:

I'm new to building speakers but have been approached by a friend with access to a professional woodworking shop that will build enclosures for us at a very attractive price. We are focused on the Elsinore, in part because of the detailed information available and the knowledge of its fan base. One of the unknowns we are currently wrestling with is whether the waveguides for the Elsinore Mark VI version are commercially available or must be assembled (and if so, from what). Frankly, I have no idea what it takes to construct a waveguide or the skills and equipment needed to make them properly. What's the story?

Thanks,
Scott
