I believe Kudzu was brought to the US from Japan specifically for erosion control.

I don't like either one. The only way I've been able to get rid of Bamboo was to create a brush burn pile on top of where it was growing. It eventualy stopped coming back. Kudzu, I haven't figured out yet.

@Erich H
I asked about the SEOS-8 a few pages back. It may have been missed in the drama or possibly you aren't at ready to divulge the details. If it's the latter, that's fine. I just know it's easy to miss posts in this monster thread.

This thread sometimes moves too fast. I have a constant flow of emails telling me that someone posted to this thread and I check this thread daily, and yet I also missed the SEOS 8 update. Obviously I did not check it thorough enough.

But the "carbonization" of the bamboo you're using (heating such that sugars in the bamboo caramelize and darken) also makes the bamboo like 30% softer? So maybe it becomes no more difficult to work with than some other hardwood?

Luckily commercial CNC bits are carbide, but yes it still requires more bit changes than Baltic or MDF. It's not the easiest material to work with, but worth it if you like the look. It's a very good material to build speakers out of, but the expense kind of makes it a higher end option.

I saw those when you posted them but nothing about a SEOS-8/CD version with something like the DNA-150.

Man you have skills. I can never look back through this thread and find anything.

Don't use "pages" ... it's not reliable, due to varying pagination settings. The post number should be canonical though.

What gets me is that AVS Forum won't spend an hour's programmers time to put in dynamic redirection of old forum links to new URL format.

Good news. Are there going to be preassembled xo for those and what about the 1899?

I was under the impression that the SEOS waveguide was best suited for 2-way. Is a smaller waveguide or horn needed for the tweeter, then a standard SEOS for the midrange?

What is the purpose of the new 3-ways, or in what application will they work best?

You sir have missed the 1099's and Maximus thread. A 3 way can allow for some beefier woofers that can't normally be crossed around 1000hz.

And a dedicated midrange to avoid crossover in voice frequency range?

I'm still waiting for the volt 10s to come back in stock before upgrading my fusion 12's to a 3 way design. Still kicking myself for not ordering them on the last round. Silly me for wanting to wait couple weeks until I actually had the cash. It is exciting to see some three way designs coming to the site. They will make a nice upgrade to what I have with hopefully enough punch to make me stop thinking about building mid bass modules.

Hard to comprehend more speakers to the line up, when it seems tough to keep ones you have already in stock.

I know Erich is trying to rectify this situation. Sometimes it's not his fault that certain parts or speakers are simply out of stock. He has been working with manufactures to secure larger quantities of special order speakers lately, think 1099 black woofers and mids. He's also had the issue of the parts being shipped overseas and there being a dock workers strike. Hopefully things will start changing and he is able to keep things in stock for longer periods of time. Hard to do so when you don't have a lot of available capital to purchase larger quantities of product for a range of products.

It is almost literally unbelievable how much work and money Mr. H. puts into things. Really quite impressive and inspiring. Always fun to see what comes next, even if I don't have the budget to build two of everything!

I can't shake the thought that maybe a few "all [or "almost all," but that wouldn't completely eliminate the risk of stock problems] parts available from Parts Express and elsewhere" pay-for-protected-IP (Say, $20 or so? $50?) designs might help put some money in the ol' DIYSG R&D&Beer coffers -- especially since the SEOS 12 is available at PE. Maybe a low-cost, budget driver generic updated-Econowave model, and a high cost, fancy-name-brand-driver model?

I'd _volunteer_ to take care of stocking and sending out (paper or email, either) XOs/designs/instructions bought through DIYSG.

Things do go out of stock, but that doesn't mean more kits shouldn't be done. If anything it will be better to get more variety because if one thing goes out of stock due to a part, there are 5 other choices.

The Volt's are very close to staying in stock all the time. I've got 180 compression drivers coming by air and will be here in a few days. Then another 500 on a shipping container that will be here in about 1.5 months.....that will keep those in stock for a while. I got in hundreds of crossover boards for the Volts too. The other hard part is getting the inductors. PE carries the ERSE models we need, but it takes ERSE a long time to get them back in stock. PE will say 'Due April -5"......I wait. Then it will say 'Due April 15".......wait.....'Due April 25'......wait.....Now they are saying 'Due May 01.'

I had a feeling that was going to happen so I ordered 100 directly from ERSE 2.5 weeks ago, but who knows when those will be here. Then ordered 80 from Meniscus that will hopefully be here in a week. And when PE gets them in stock, I will clear them out as well. If all goes well I should have a few hundred in a couple weeks.

And to be 100% sure I'm going to put another order into Eminence for more Volt 10 coaxials. I've got a lot right now, but it takes 7 weeks to get them produced, so I want to order early to be sure.

Sounds like it is almost worth figuring out how to wind your own inductors just to avoid supply problems.

I'm definitely excited for more designs. I really appreciate all the effort Erich puts in to this site. I'm still surprised he doesn't charge more even if its just for his time. An extra 10% would still make these speakers an incredible deal.

I think one sure way to help Erich, that he's asked for, is to provide good information on posts for product info, instructables, reviews.

Also pain points are customizations ("Can I have the kit with no horn?"), lack of follow-through on pre-orders.
