Econowave Deluxe build - Page 2

post #31 of 38
Jayhawk,

Again, great job with these. Makes me contemplate a similar build myself sometime. For me, dabbling in subs is one thing. But a nice, well executed main such as you've pulled off here is very, very cool. I'd like to read more comments from you on their various characteristics and capabilities.

I want to take a moment to post I can appreciate the normal, vertical manner in which you're orienting your center channel. Seems all too often I see individuals orient their CC driver elements in the horizontal plane un-necessarily. It's one thing if that's the only avenue available, wrt height restrictions etc. But doing so without those restrictions seems ill advised.

I know in my room, a horizontal, horn based two way does exhibit inconsistencies that aren't there when placed vertically. We've all seen the measured reasons, but when it's audible at the LP, that's what is important. Man, I really dig that clean, no fastener appearance of the LF driver area of the baffle.

Thanks for sharing...

Wow, very nice work! You built very nice looking speakers and then covered them up... cool.gif
How do you like the sound now that they're in their final places?
How do they compare to the Stens?

they seem to have more range (downward) than the stentorians do--maybe better dispersion, they sound more even across the listening area. I guess that's what you get with horns though eh? I didn't give the stentorians too long, as I'd already made the decision to move the speakers behind the screen and they wouldnt fit.

So if anyone in the orlando area wants some stentorians (x3) on the cheap--let me know smile.gif
