It's the larger neo magnet that they use on all the Kappalites.

A year or so ago I started a thread and showed some custom parts I was working on with Eminence. Two things they made for me were copper lined neo motors that are used in the Deltalites and Kappalites. That might still be a go at some point after more testing, but these don't have that copper in it. My goal with the copper sleeves was mostly aimed at making the Deltalites even better than they already are. I should jump start that project again to see how it goes.

@eng-399 , I have a new request for you. Finish the enclosures however you'd like, but then get the waveguides hydrographically dipped! You can get basically any pattern you want, and it flawlessly covers curves, corners, etc. I don't think I've seen anyone dip speakers yet, but I bet it would be an amazing look for the big WG.

The state of the boxes address
As of a few minutes ago all the bracing is complete in every box. I have two of the baffles on and the third will go on tonight or tomorrow because I ran out of clamps. After that the second baffle will be glued down and then we're of to the waveguide part of the build. I decided that I'm basically going to do what Erich had lauded out for it for it until later this year when I rebuild all three boxes and make them look like the latest picture Matt drew up. I have one waveguide part that Erich sent me and I'll copy that and glue it together so it shouldn't take to long to do. Here's some pictures of today's work so far.

Every box is identical.

More to come

What are you lining your cabs with? Ultratouch? Also, what are the dimensions of your cabs? What's the length you're using for your precision ports?

The cabinets are 20 inches wide 29.5 high and 16 inches in depth. It's just over 4 cubic ft. Per cabinet. I'm lining my cabs with ultra touch insulation and for the ports I'm using the front and back end of the flared ports with no extension piece just the coupling to hold together the front and back of the ports as directed by Matt. A flat pack would of been much easier and faster maybe next time.

Mike, do you plan on using a gasket or anything between the box surface and the port?

Yep that was my plan speaker gasket attached to the back of the port. The 15" speaker/woofer has gasket tape on the back of it already so I'm set there. I'll have to see about the 6 inch mid. It still hasn't hit me yet that these are replacing my behringer's up front I'm so excited. I still have two of my slot ported boxes in there I need to get out. There soooo heavy.

Hi Mike, or @mtg90 ,

I was wondering if you could provide the dimensions of the assembled XO? I just pre-ordered my kits, and I was thinking about having the XO mounted in a clear box on top of the cab, behind the horns. I'm assuming there would be room there, on the narrow flat packs, yes?


Thanks,

Tim

There's a flat section behind the brace on the horn bracket that's big enough to put the assembled crossover. MTG90 made sure the board would fit there.

Progress...
All three boxes have the second baffles glued together and I'm now sanding down the cabinets. Once done I'll cut the brackets for the waveguide and glue them together. Making them seamless is my next step after what I mentioned above.


I'll post pictures of all three boxes together once there all sanded down.

Awesome, thanks. How high does that large cap stick up from the PCB? Looking great BYW. Can't wait to get mine, although I cheated and went with the flat packs

Earlier he posted a pic, the cap has a similar diameter to a Coca-Cola can.

The mid is enclosed and screwed in with 4-4 mm screws.

The cd gets screwed in the waveguide.

The mid is a sealed back. The CD (as all are) is also sealed.

They will work fine in wall or sitting in the middle of the room.

All boxes are sanded down
After that I finished the waveguide guide mounting deal.

Saw dust everywhere


Now I'm going to double check the height of the waveguide to the wood then glue those together and start hiding the seams I. The box.
