I'm very happy with how my design is developing and it's meeting the criteria I set quite well. The Econowave has obviously been successful in bringing these sorts of speakers to average diy'er and that can only help my own design's popularity.
Agreed. They are both high efficiency 2 ways, and other than that, are two different projects. Ditto with Wayne's PI speakers. All good and different ways to get to a similar place.
Main difference I see between E'wave and this is E'wave didnt follow Geddes design ideas, probably closer to what Wayne on the PI site is doing, while this effort seems to be using Geddes ideas, a least as far as face plate and horn round over is concerned.
Another important difference is E'wave is basically a project for a high efficiency top, which one mates to his own woofer, and is left to manage the crossover for LP. augerpro's speaker here is a complete design, box, HP, LP, the whole stick.
I was a big advocate on the E'wave thread, and have a big set of them based on JBL 4507 and 2235H. I still am interested in building this speaker, a complete design. I'm sure there will be similarities. Pissing contests dont further projects, except the one I'll have with myself once NO Quarter is completed.
Thanks for the project, Augerpro!
