Looks like the Avalon Sentinel's to me. Thats a lot of cutting to create those boxes for the mids!

I'm not really a big fan of awe'ing at cloned speakers. I think it's better to draw
up your own design and make it from scratch. Custom rules. You can still get
inspired by designs and mimick, but that design looks too perfect and is labeled
a clone. Maybe there is a different agenda we don't know about? Maybe the guy
wants to sell the unit as the real deal when it's a fake :naughty:

I know someone who did this BTW and he got big $$$ ...;)
Your quest if you choose to accept, clone the Wilson Audio Alexandrias
and sell them for $45k :p: Sell it to a blind man :crazy:

I heard one in 5 items sold in China is a knock-off.

Speaking of custom speakers....

Anyone know where I can get the loudspeaker cookbook cheap?

Try Amazon or ebay/FS forums.

PE sells them...but they are not "cheap".

I need to order the new one that just came out a couple months ago. Since I read less than the first two chapters in the 6th edition, I might as well just start from scratch and read the entire 7th edition instead...LOL.

Some people I guess aren't creative enough to come up with their own design....
