??? I mean the driver is acoustically an open baffle with an end correction of approximately 0.613x radius except of course being somewhat flexible as it oscillates over a narrow arc defined by its excursion.

Unacceptable in what way? Sure they show some sink marks near the reinforcing ribs on the rear, and the throat entrance on the XT1464 occasionally has some remnants of pins from the injection process.



If those bother you, then sanding and filling can give you flawless contours ( which only satisfy ones' OCD, with the smallest significant wavelength being approximately 5/8" ) and are not acoustically significant issues.

Even a moneyless middle class dude like me is able to CNC and lasercut a Large woofer able to hold a large format compression driver with a Tractrix 300 in a coaxial configuration, why don't you put a decent membrane on your horn, please ?
It don't merit it ?

PS : i've got the same shoes since 9 years, they smell good, they look approximately good but the soles are scary...

The Reflector is not a coax and I don't think it's designed to mimic a coax.

You've forgot the form rules...
I've seen the photo, then minded that have a complete diaphragms kit that probably will have to go to the trashcan in few weeks, and then immediately mind that i would be a good idea to give these prototype parts to someone that needs it for a test.

No I haven't, it was just a personal note

Your ingenuity is impressive!

I came across the ETF 2010 horn shootout and thought: "such a big Onken could work for camplo."

Seriously?! What's the point then beyond looking silly?
