Thanks Bill. I thought the lack of a pole vent was a little odd. I'm just hoping to find SOMETHING about these. If I can use them as-is in HT or in an econowave, great. Otherwise I might keep...

Oops, good catch. For some reason I thought I saw the outer diameter was 12" or less on those 1260W/1262W drivers. I think I meant to put a 26inch inside height. I'm trying to keep the overall...
