Can we see a closeup of where the waveguide meets the tweeter?
At the front? I dont have the black ones. there all shipped. I can show the wood ones(taped in place) that I have in other cabs that are now MK5

Mk5 sounds great.. Great job Joe
Friend showed up and immediately noticed more revealing and detailed treble
Bass is better across the range and midrange clean and the main thing(balance) I loved about them seems to remain.
All first impressions after 4 hours


Waveguides
I"m keeping rough track of the takers.. I think its close to a go
Best to email me at neverenoughmusic@hotmail.com if you want a pair
I'll get the starting numbers and then post a final time fo anyone coming in a bit later..

Thanks for the comments on the speakers..


Joel

I think I can handle that.

I received the waveguides from Joel today. Wow, am i impressed! They turned out spectacular! They are quite substantial, more than I expected. The powercoat is first class and really lends a professional touch. Hat's off to Joel for the superior effort and outstanding turn-around/comms (Thanks again Joel).

In any case, here ya go:

Question for those who built a Elsinore center speaker. If the speaker is close to your tv don’t you need to use shielded speakers? If so how did you resolve that?

Thanks,

jea

They make a fitting called a slip coupling. It already has the center ridge missing. Look in the plumber/pipefitting section.

Thanks. The plumbing slip couplings I found were a bit undersized. The 3" electrical coupler I got from home depot is ~3.5" ID (90mm ID) and 88mm in length. Once the center ridge is eliminate, it should be perfect. A 4 and 1/8 hole saw (105mm) will be just about right if not perfect for the outside diameter.
