Marty, you should check out the recent thread about AE getting away from DIY. Maybe you could post measurements here and we could help you with a XO instead of John. You know, give him some time back I know Matt has used both the SEOS 15 and AE 15, albeit at different times. Besides, with several different insights you might get a better result.

Be prepared to do the hard work though

Speaker grille and waveguides

In a separate thread on how to make speaker grilles I asked were there any issues with sound PQ if I made a grille that went around the waveguide, ie, would there be some diffraction issues that were "listenable".
Since this is the main thread on DIY waveguides possible I should have asked here, re-post below:

I planned on leaving the lower ports visible, did not want to cove them up, from a sound PQ viewpoint is that ok to do though?
If so I might to give the speaker a totally clean look when grille on.


Q:
Will the high freq short size wave (green) hit the grille edge and potentially cause some sound quality issues? Diffraction.

Mtb, I've got some grills on my speakers that are along the base of the waveguide. I plan to do some serious comparison listening with the grill on and off. But haven't yet. Also will test with them on and off. So it you're patient I can help eventually.

Tux - sure I'll put the neo magnets in the baffle during build but won't make my grille till you post some measurements.
I do plan on making my grille as "thin to win" as possible.

I've been out of town for last 10 days. Before I left there was talk by Bill and Erich of a high end coaxial for Atoms. Any developments? Very interested.

Builds: Maelstrom 21 Ottoman Build, Dual Opposed MFW's x 2, Statements, SEOS-12/TD12M x 5.

'The Atom' project is in the coaxial thread. There's a small change needed that's just about done. I'm also waiting on a well priced 6" model that I should have samples of really soon as well. The other 6" coaxials would have ended up costing more than the V-8 and V-10 so I had to go back to the drawing board for the V-6. I will be posting photos as soon as I have them in my hand.

Hey, have you considered a metal perforated grill? I think they perform pretty well and dont need a frame.

There is even places on the net thatll make them custom sizes for you with boxed/bent edges.

They look pretty nice imo.

Just a thought.
