Gotcha. Thanks.

I saw the new fullrange units on the (menscus if I spelled that right audio) group web site but as of pricing maybe the end of next week. They look nice.

Hi,

The tweeters will be delivered on Thursday and we will start accepting orders on Saturday.

Documentation is very slow these days for a variety of reasons. There will also be more info on the Planar2 shortly. This plus 4 VWRs in a BLH were a hit at the Ottawa DIY event.

A little close up.

Man I'm dying to get info on these. I'm pretty sure I'll be buying the tweeter. Trying to dream up a use for the wide bander. Oh, and that Planer2 :eek: I love it. Want a pair really bad.

msmkravchenko, looks nice, but I gotta admit, I never would have thought to pair up those drivers ;) Interesting combo.

very cool stuff fellas! I'd suggest a thick layer of felt alongside both the horn and the midwoofs, that horn is not well-terminated (price you pay for small mounting flange and good C-C spacing), and the mids are no doubt throroughly illuminating that baffle edge.

Sweet stuff though, very cool :D

Considering how long the VWRs have been available, Mike might not have had much time to get fussy with rebated /flush mounting of the drivers, edge diffraction control, etc.

Nothing says proof of concept prototype like unfilled brad nail holes or untrimmed / sanded cabinet panels - congrats.

No, of course not- I mean later down the road. But I'd call limiting diffraction, especially as regards horn termination, as more than a "getting fussy" thing, I'd say it's key in an overall design.

They look very cool, not trying to disparage at all. I know Mike's probably already well aware of the issue.
