I agree about the bigger waveguide right now. We should stay focused on the smaller 6" - 18" models because that's what 99.8% of the people want and that's what we have, and that's what we know works really well. When we discussed which size to make the plastic model, everyone thought the 18" was too big for most, and the 15" was still a bit too much. The 12" was by far the most desired, and it smokes all other brands.
So the number of people that would get a 24" wide model would be extremely slim. Plus there's a chance that the BA driver will go low enough on the SEOS-18 for some 18" woofers. One idea behind the SEOS was the ability to cross lower for it's size. So the SEOS-18 competes with larger horns already.*** Gentlemen ***
I say let's get some darn speakers built with what we have, what we all decided on, and what we have coming very soon. We're here, we've proved it can be done, and we now have the parts to do it. Let's tay on target so this project can be a proven winner. If we don't, we have absolutely nothing.
There are a few people here that I talked to behind the scenes all the time right in the middle of this project. If you recall, I always said there were things going on in the background. The reason I didn't do it out in the open was because of what my Grandmother always taught me to not let happen.....'Too many Chiefs, not enough indians'. She actually said "Too many Chiefs not enough Injuns"
, which I like much more.
When there are too many ideas being debated, and no one grabbing one and pulling it through, it's a completely doomed project.
So let's slam dunk the first part and get it done, then worry about the other .2% later.
I can't do crossover work yet. I'm simply not good enough and have zero problems admitting that. But as stated on the very first page of this thread......I'll get the waveguides prototyped and made. Now let's have some crossover gurus get some darn speakers wrapped around these things so they can be enjoyed.
