Yes we kind of realized what you were getting at as many of use took those same steps. The nice thing is that we can learn from what others have done and not reinvent the wheel too many times.

Which brings me to this link for the OP. You may look at some Fostex speakers to get something along the lines of what you want.

Thanks for your responses. I have a pair of Lowther Fidelios winging there way to me as I type. The Avantgarde experience was my 1st time with horns of any kind so for a smalll outlay I thought the Lowthers were worth a punt - even if they only give me a small taste of what i heard.

Thats very true, i had a bad hick up on my first ESL panels, there are so many variables. It takes only one to throw you for a loop and want to give up.
As Calvin says, you cannot base something "new" on first time and expect it to come out perfect. I did not cut any corners, tried to get get the best material, and still failed.
With help though, from Charlie, Ger, Calvin, those three have helped me achieve my goals, yes, it will take a punch to your wallet, but the satisfaction is priceless. Listen very well to these members have to say, trust me, listen.
A pic of your project is a good starting point, or a design. Thats what I did and ran with it, after some research and some approval for the idea.
Good luck on your project, mine took almost five months and still going, there is never enough after your first, if you know what i mean. He he.
go get it!

I like this dang deer for some reason. Mav
