I think the No Quarter could become a cult speaker where it becomes a highly prized speaker due to the limited availability of the waveguide. I also don't think it is an exercise in futility as QSC was really cool about selling these waveguides and a lot of them were sold before their new waveguide design was implemented. I have 10 of them that will be pressed into service in one way or another. The reason the NQ was attractive to me was due to the approach that you take with your speaker design. You clearly 'get' what is going on and it is clear to me that a final product would be a really well designed speaker that would not fail to please.
All is not lost for those of us who are neophites in speaker design and wish to use this waveguide. Most of us are familiar with the 'econowave' and 'show us your meddle' threads at AK and Zilch's efforts there. Zilch clearly 'got' speaker design and has posted many crossovers with different combinations of drivers. He did choose compromises always using the same breakdown, trapezoid kit enclosure where as the NQ is a purpose built, few holds barred, system. I'd gladly build a memorial 'econowave' speaker system that would sound great, but the NQ is the holy grail for this waveguide.
Thanks Brandon for your efforts and teachings and for the inspiration to achieve considerable sound quality through DIY efforts.
