The SEOS waveguide was designed right here on the AVS forum last year by some pretty smart forum members. Even Zilch had his thoughts go into the design and he was really looking forward to trying out the 10" version. He liked both sizes, but thought the 10" was pretty neat. Zilch was actually going to be the one testing these before he passed away earlier this year.
The project started out as a way to replace the QSC waveguide used in many Econowave style speakers that you could no longer purchase. I promised to get it prototyped and produced if a design was agreed upon. I've never done that before but thought it might be interesting. A few forum members figured that if we were going to make a prototype from scratch, we might as well try to make something even better. As the process went on, it turned into a bigger group buy for other waveguides and horns spread over a few different forums.
After a very long wait, I finally got the pallet yesterday and started unpacking. Let me say that these different sizes were packed really well and every space was filled with something. Very impressive.Lots of photos.
I had already removed some packing material a few Iwata-300 horns from the top when this photo was taken.
Here's what the Iwata looked like, notice the tape on the front saying there were more horns inside!
I felt like a scientist removing something from an alien's belly as I cut open the tape.
They managed to get some big items on this pallet too. Here's a monster 38" diameter horn, with another "small" horn stuffed in it's mouth. And there's yet another one inside the mouth of the smaller horn! (I put a hammer there to give an idea on size)
Couldn't move those big boys until I took out all the small ones filling the other spaces. You can't see this in the photo, but there were even horns inside the shrink wrap on the larger ones as well.
