Hi Joe,

is it worth considering getting these made out of plastic, I bet someone on this forum has the means? You have obviously got a good mould.

Joe,

Thanks for the wave guide information and pictures and also the future dimensions and drawings.

If everybody that responded earlier is still with us, including BHD and mantraxl, we have 7 in our group, assuming the final cost is acceptable to everybody. We shall appreciate it if you and Steve would let us know how to proceed the negotiations.

Thanks,
Francois

Elsinores has been my first effort in the DIY audio world and I am blown away with the results.

Hello

Just wondering if it matters if the drivers are installed, rotated by 90 degrees?
So the flats of the speaker sides are vertical with the side of the cabinet instead of horizontal.
Just for a different look thats all.

Well done greenpea looks great,the picture reminds me i still goto make the grille frame.Thanks for the waveguides.

Currently trying to set out the coils on a4 paper for best orientation any suggestion appreciated.
I was looking at humbles website and he packs the stuff really close together, couldn't find one with five coils though.I did see his write up on coil placement but the five on one board got me.

Cheers Paul

Pictures 2 and 3..

I,m thinking picture 2 as it keeps the coils relative to the wiring diagram.(V5)
Less chance of me stuffing it up.

Hi Paul,

Changing the driver orientation should make no difference, as long as you manage your wire connections.

My layout is most like your Pic 1.

Apparently lab measurements indicate that any crosstalk is very low after about 50 mm between coils I usually go or the greatest separation allowed by the dimensions of the mounting area (or box). Another rule of thumb says that when you look straight through the whole of a coil you should not see another coil behind it, especially not one with the same coil orientation. Pic 1 looks the best in this regard also.

My 2 cents. Good luck.

Francois

Good news about the waveguides and congrats with your superb looking Elsinores. They speak volumes about your craftsmanship.

As you know from earlier posts we have 7 people in the US that expressed interest in group buying 7 pairs of waveguides, pending the final cost. Would you and/or Joe prefer to proceed by private mail in our discussions?

Then please send PM to me.

Thanks,
Francois
