Correction - on closer examination, the tweeter holes have a metal M3 threaded inserts. The woofers have M4 inserts.

I just can imagine the bird size !

We will see more an more things like that with the 3D printing progress... with many diferent materials, metal even. Cost greatly decreases... and molds will be a souvenir.

Eggzackerly!

I've just realised the rear Speakon socket is probably fitted using nuts and bolts rather than cutting a thread into the plastic. Accessed through the woofer hole.

Yes, that's likely. Cool that it has the Speakon cutout. And also cool that it has the threaded inserts for the drivers.

Have you hatched a plan?

Almost! Still wondering about the egg cup needed. The originals come with rubber ones so maybe I can cut some rings out of foam. Could put a wig on the pointy end for extra diffraction.

Well it's certainly a fertile environment for ideas round here. Just looking at the Egg 100 photos, I think the 4" driver is a fancier one than the SDS line. It looks like one with a cast aluminium frame rather than stamped.
