ALUMINUM WAVEGUIDE

You can check shipping costs below MY PC L1E 3B2

I used Small Packet International Air NZ $36.07 GB $33.45
Final Cost is Subject to taking them to Post Office and getting printed quote

http://www.canadapost.ca/cpotools/ap...execution=e2s1

The more people that want these price will lower
(200 + cost for each additional pair divided by the number of people) + filler board + shipping.

I could make the filler board slightly oversized and can be easily sanded to fit snuggly in the opening and so Waveguide ends up in the right place. I can also veneer the board and have a wide selection of veneers on hand. Cost wont be much.

I'll get pictures when I pick them up. I'm trusting these will be good. The guy has done some amazing things with AL. When I arrived he already put Waveguide in CAD and I viewed it in 3D. He made the front of one in lathe with MDF and looked good..

There is guy in my area that powder coats car parts. I might look him up
but dont know if this is best for Aluminum.

Spoonted, I like what your saying. Would love to hear more.

Joel

Waveguide pictures from Steve at Creative CNC

He decided on his own to put a 45 on the outside and I'm a bit pissed.
I know his heart is into it but not sure if its going to work for the way I'm putting these in. Might have to ask for another pair. The 45 could look good along with a 45 on the filler board but I'm also adding thin wood to flush fit the drivers..

Dont know how the pictures will look but when I pick them up will have friend do better pics..

Joel

Joel
that 45 degr edge is easy to remove by hand

but a bit small to support the tweeter around its xo point
looks more like a super tweeter thing
or maybe there's more to be added, and I missed that part
well, mine aint too big either
shown for inspiration only, and interest

Hi all,
After a few hours of listening last night i have noticed the following,

Please take into consideration half the time i,m not sure what you guys mean when describing different aspects of a speaker so feel free to educate me with my laymans description.

Straight away i noticed a sense of 3d depth to the music like there were layers,i have never heard this before compared to prev owned speakers that include Krix lyrix,vaf dcx and some older B&W 202s.

Usally you can listen to a speaker and say the music coming from left or right speaker, thats the tweeter thats the mids and always seemed mechanical to me not a live performance but the elsinores seem to come from (Trying to think of word) a sound stage or the music comes from the wall not the spekers at all (incredible).

If i concertrate on one speaker you can not differnciate between the tweeter /mids and lows they blend together not isolted probably say silky sort of sound.

Bass is effortless in tight controlled high quality fashion,the drivers hardly move to produce high sound levels.

Now i know people are not full of it when they say the have to listen to there music collection again and all this from a sony plastation 3 as the cd source (OPPO power board died) and a Pioneer SCLX73.

Jeez Joe now youv'e done it.

What next center speaker,new oppo or unity coupling amp.

Must get back to work.

Cheers spoonted.
