If I were to do it again, I would choose around 3-4 mm hole size.

it's a tough call,but would probaly have to agree with you charlie on that one.and also(depending on lowest frequency exepcted)i would probaly go with a .080" to.090" (or 3/32') spacing for a panlel that width, to stay close too 100:1 width vs spacing.this will give you a little more headroom for the lows.even my little ones bottomed out ocasionaly (4.5" wide )at .0625"(1/16")spacing and the bigger ones at 9" wide defintely did at .0625" spacing so i used .090" on all of them for that reason.i also didn't have a crossover either as they were running fullrange then.the difference in efficantcy i made up in using a higher bais voltage.charlie i assume your using a crossover if so at what frequency did you choose and what is the d/s spacing you chose?.jer

placed the order for panels, copper tape, 1/16' foam tape, and a big smile on my face!!!
on the down side, i still have to build the step up transformers as well as a free standing esl. i also need to purchase a nice active cross over.
Charlie, sorrry for calling so late, and thanks for the info. people write books for a reason, Sander's to me is a pioneer in audio, my son, father, and thank GOD my wife are interested, its taking more time than i thought though.
but when parts come in, i will find a way to have the days to make something and more than happy to share results. thanks guys, girls, whomever is reading as i go, support is 110% here! If i had some more money, iwould make another donation.

I'm using 1/16" d/s spacing and 51% open stators with .141" diameter holes. This is good for hybrids and it provides for very high output. Also using a DBX Model 223 active crossover (24db/octave), which I picked up on Ebay for $75. I started off with a 380hz crossover point per the Cookbook guidelines but I've recently reduced it to around 280 hz and it sounds great there too; although the lower I set the crossover, the more EQ and amp power it takes to balance the low end dipole phase cancellation. I got plenty of amp power so that's not a problem for me.

excelent,that would have been my recommendation also,charlie,like i said, i had prefered to use .090" spacing over .0625" spacing because i was pushing them full range and i had two sets of frames,so all i had to do was unbolt the thing and swap them out.if mavric gets a 20mil coating thickness on the stator with a .0625 d/s then running a slightly higer bias voltage should be more than enough to make up for any defficiency's.every time i see a good deal on ebay its always when don't have the cash.just recently i saw some dbx 266 compressor's i that need badly because the one i had some how disappeared a few years ago.jer

i have used lots of equipment from behringer you can not beat the price for the quality in fact i almost bought their biggest mixer before it was pulled from the market for being a half priced mackie 32-8 clone.their reverb unit was awsome so was there compressors not to mention their little mixer which is basicly a half priced clone also,( sorry bob)no you can,t go wrong there.it would cost you that much to build one. i'll look it up and take a closer look tonight.the linkwitz-riley filters are what you want to use anyway.jer
