Thanks for clarifying about the P7HD vs. P7.

Yes, I remember from the microTower plans that the terminus varied for the different drivers. That all makes sense.

I am also very glad that I chose to make my bottom plate (where the terminus is located) removable so if I ever decide to change drivers it is a simple matter of modifying or replacing the terminus, or perhaps replacing the plate and the terminus.

Perhaps a mod could spin this (and related discussion) off into a separate "microTower Revisited" thread.

I think a Pluvia 7HD microTower could be truly excellent. The basic design has stood the test of time, it is easy to build, has a small footprint and big WAF, can be bipole or "semi-omni", etc. etc.

Awesome, I would be interested in these as well. They sound like a good option for rock and more complex music that the horns struggle with, while still avoiding crossovers etc. Simple shape looks good for learning veneer too.

Okay so I have coveted the Woden Silbury and wanted to build a pair for a long time. I even have the thumbs up from my wife.

However, I am very, very tempted to order 4 Pluvia 7HD right now to retro-fit into my microTowers. The microTowers really do have a lot going for them. And it isn't that I dislike the EL70 drivers. On the contrary, I have really enjoyed them. They do lack somewhat in the treble end, however. Also, the ones up top on my microTowers got badly bleached by the sun (sitting by the window for years) so I treated/coated them and the results are pretty ugly.

I still have a big desire to build and hear some BLH speakers, but there are other options that would be a lot more practical than Silbury.

Hmmmm.... my wife just told me she'll buy the 4 Pluvias for me.

That’s the link (i just pointed it out in post 1). Your URL will be out of date with the next plan update — even if just to add a new vents page with at least P7HD in it).

Ooops. Sorry Dave. I missed that.

So, did you just confirm there will be a P7HD tuning/terminus designed?

I could take a crack at it myself , but I'd much rather leave that to Mr. Moose.
