I also remember how many hours Mattes spent on his flowers...

I thought you were already a busy man, X!

Which woofer do you plan to use with that Dayton driver?

But going the Mattes / Transfi way is tempting indeed....

I would use basic paper faced foam core so much easier to cut. My son was asking for a set of speakers for his room and I thought this might be interesting to let him help. Probably my dual Tang Band 5in XKi subwoofer that’s built already.

I received the drivers the other day. They are well made but note that the basket is plastic and not cast aluminum as it sort of appears that way. It has a large suspension with good support. The diaphragm and dustcap are both aluminum. I am not crazy about how large the square plastic bezel appears though - the lack of the 4 corner bevels seems to really make the driver look bigger than 3.5in compared to how small a TC9FD is. OTOH, mounting them flush in a line array simply requires a long trench rebate vs 25 beveled corners per side. A snap to assemble for a line-array as they would stack touching each other and leave no gap on the corners like a TC9FD would.

Still need to listen to it though.
