To the left is a SHO-10 which I am comparing as we speak. I will watch football thru them to break them in.

Not with a subwoofer or subwoofers!

This is my brother in laws house that owns the 3 SHO-10's and CS-18.1 powered. The woofers need some time to break in as the CDs are dominating a little.

They are slot ported below the woofer.

No, these have two round ports in the middle or in between the CD and woofer.

Oh right on must be the older ones than? Do they have the older waveguide too?

Yes older ones, when they started having the smooth finish and black poly fill.
post #585 of 1021
K gotcha.
post #586 of 1021
Huh, between Erich's comment and this, maybe I don't have the tweeter padded enough. Let me know if it doesn't balance out.

I won't know until we run some movies thru them that I am familIar with.

Delta 10s take awhile to open up and get some feeling to them. In my case anyway.

Why are you building the SEOS again? They replacing the DR250's?

Well, it first started off as a challenge for Craig's upcoming GTG. I won't know how they sound for sure until I get them in my theater and blended in with my IB. Here is how I see it, if these match my DR-250's these will become my surrounds and I would buy the big boy kits.

It all starts out innocent, then, before you know it you're explaining the pallet of goods in the driveway to the wife biggrin.gif

Excited to see what you think MK. What big boy kit will you end up with if you do prefer them?

First, I doubt I will like these as much as my stacks BUT you never know. The problem I see is that these use the delta 10 in a ported design which is fine. My current fronts have dual deltalite 2's in a horn so they are the upgraded drivers to the delta 10's with much more spl and higher sensitivity to boot! The bad is they drop off fast but still will have more power and sensitivity at 80hz even without the horn loading. So there is no contest at the woofer section. The difference is the CD and SEOS 12 vs the 40 piezo tweeters. If you can tame those tweeters they give you a very live sound without being harsh. Again, this is all on paper so you never know. If they do sound as good then the SEOSR would be on my radar.

When you have a hammer all you see is nails. So true I even inquired Erich on the 12" tempest kits recently. Looking to see if can make them fit for my application, and moving the SHO's to surround duty.

I'm still running dual DTS-10's off two ep4k's. Still have my drywall but I noticed the adjacent wall to the subs to another room flexes about 1". Plans to re-enforce that joining room wall, but all is good.

BTW guys, I used brad nails and a compressor so there are no screws except for the drivers and SEOS 12.

IMO nails aren't the best with speaker boxes. Need a screw with thread so nail doesn't back out under pressure. This happened to me building a 12" sub car audio box with brad nails in shop class years ago in high school and aftrr few weeks they began pushing back out. May not be an issue in your case
since 10 crossed at 80hz won't create as much pressure. Just keep an eye on them.

Nails look great because you can't see them. These are speakers and the vibrations are nill. Even my eD subs with nails were just fine. Compression nails and glue work just fine.
