Thanks! I'm very happy with them. The pictures here show some light reflection that looks like a white speckle pattern but they're completely black..

Its spring and going to get outdoors to router the filler.
First going to box the waveguides seperately for shipping alone.

Hi Joel
I was concerned too, but the gap is fine (looks like it was designed that way)
I think if you tried to match the two faces perfectly it would look like a mistake if you know what i mean.
Yeh, I see what you mean.

ATTENTION:

ALLUMINUM WAVEGUIDE PURCHASE

Price

$160/pair $240/three plus shipping
$170/pair $245/three including fillers plus shipping

This includes nice screws and have purchased shipping boxes(holds 3)
I kept it as low as possible.. will have to make several 90min round trips with high gas prices..



Asking for cost of waveguides up front
I can get the ball rolling with deposit to get them made
Please purchase max 3 for personal use

will get shipping cost at that time


Shipping

Box size waveguides only 20x20x16mm weight 1.8kg/2 2.7/3
Box size waveguides and fillers 25x18x19mm weight 2.8kg/2 3.2/3
Fillers to be built

Was at the post office and was told the online estimates are accurate.
One thing, it seems that when the weight goes above somewhere between 2 and 3kg we lose "Small Parcel International" and only given xpress or gound and price goes up. Expect to pay what comes up but could be lower and I raised weigh a little just to be shure.. Only pay actual cost. Ground can take 2 months . Small Parcel or xpress is best
Need postal code for US and Canada only.

Examples "small parcel" 2 waveguide only NZ 54.18 GB 50.26

My Postal L1E 3B2 to check rates.

I don't know, but in principle we would ususally move you to 'swap meet' forum

and considering other members using this tweeter might be interested, it could actually be to your advantage

but as said, I don't know

Hi Joel,

At the risk of looking really stupid, I have a question:

Do the waveguides exactly match the mounting plate of the tweeter and does it have matching holes so that the WG and the tweeter are mounted with the 4 screws?
If so, that would be great.

How are the WG's finished? Are they black anodised?

The mark 5's sounded so good I decided to see what upgrading the inductors in the signal path would do. I went from wire wound to flat tape wound from Madison Sound. The difference is subtle at first but with a little listening the midrange really sounds much more clear with the bass notes immediate with no ringing. The whole integration of the sound is better. The cost was about $100 US and well worth it. The Elsinor's are definitely world class speakers. Thanks again Joe for sharing these with us diy'ers. Good luck with your commercial endevor.

personally, I have been happy going the opposite way, from foil inductors to really cheap wire wound
different speakers though

btw, for the big ones I can really recommend toroids
can't do without those
