That is sad. They won't work in California? Sudden change of work?

Yes, I got a notice from the US Postal Service on 7/5! The Canada Post must be making up for lost time!

Change of work, and I don't know where I'm going to live. Yet. It's a very positive move, but fraught with unknowns. Mainly $$$ If I have no nibbles, I'll keep them....

Thanks again for all your contributions to the hobby...

I have had my eye on this flat pack deal, and think it would make for a great project for this coming winter.

One question: The metronome horns look great, my wife would like those. Any interest in a flat pack project for those?

Shipping package size is the problem with the 'nomes - best to try to find a local wood-hacker I can't imagine they're a complicated build - I just haven't gotten around to a pair yet; here are way too many other projects to try, and they just don't appeal to me aesthetically (or more importantly my wife)

chrisb, now you have peaked my interest. What designs are you looking at that score higher on the wife-appealing scale?

He hasn't seen my latest cunning plan yet. Although I suspect Chris's good lady might not be quite so keen. That said, tall it may be, but it's elegant, although I say it as shouldn't... a trifle Art Deco / Modernist.

To go by post the package needs to be <1m maximum dimension and <30 kg (as well as some other size restrictions) so a met or any of the double mouth horns could easily cost more to ship than to buy. One of the reasons that i have been evangilising local garage industries making flat-paks or finished or semi-finished speakers. So far with limited success.

Please note that the 1st run of FH3 flat-paks are all sold. We have begun work on a 2nd batch. Price will rise a bit to get a little closer to where i think they will need to be to cover all costs. Shipping as given in post #8 also proved somewhat optimistic.

17 pair altogether. 8 FE126, 6 A7, 2 EL70, 1 FE108eS

The beta build of the flat-pak ended up with FE126eN as well (seen here with a full-height deflector which will become a stealthWoofer once i dig out my external "plate-amp"). If there is interest we may do flat-paks for the woofer.
