Joel,
Regarding the waveguides, would it be cheaper to get one unpainted, or, say, made out of high density plastic?

Unpainted would be cheaper but needs a protective coating and slight machining lines show. Powder coat hides lines

My intitial talk with the CNC guy was to use some form of plastic. Round stock blanks for a pair was $440.
A 4x8 sheet, same material was $400ish and making them on his table CNC machine is not best idea for that profile. Still would cut the sheet into rounds for lathe.

In the end Aluminum was the way to go

Thanks, Joel

Don, Sorry I'm sure I didn't get your emails. I was checking frequently.

There was a few other emails but the machinist had to drive a bit to pick up the blanks so we had to cut it off.



12 Waveguides ready for paint. Drop off tomorrow

Some Waveguide fillers

Some one already mentioned it but think I'll try gluing in filler and then using filler around the edges. At this point I can level the the mdf and veneer over the front complete.

My fronts are 17.5 mm ply so have to recess Wg a little more into the sub front..
