WOW... They did a hell of a job on that....

Too bad I can't read it....

I wonder if it sounds just as good as the factory Fonus Faberous ones.....

Eye candy has a big influence. Jedi mind tricks. hehe

Here's a great example. The 'Shinman' spent at least a year and probably
100 pages on DIYaudio making his speakers.

Shortcut pic here;

He did a great job on eye candy, used great drivers, but I argued alot with
him about audio on many topics. He thinks I'm crazy. Time will tell.

Long story short. Shortly after building those, he sold them and made some
excuse that he was moving away and couldn't take the speaker with him.
He also mentioned that the sound wasn't as good as expected. This was a
really confusing issue for me to digest. He had a uber PC XO system that he
highly prized, he used ATC mids and woofers and Seas tweeter, good stuff.
IIRC, he used DIY amps...... but to not like the sound is weird. I blamed 'tuning'
as the problem as he didn't seem to spend much time with the system to extract
maxium potential even though he claimed he did. Maybe he just has very high
expectations or fubared the install ?

What now? He wanted to make another system, but more uber. You know
what I recommended based on his experience, but he didn't seem to agree.
Instead he is just making another 3 way speaker, just like the other one,
in a pretty package, using different drivers, trying to find the Holy Grail.

CAD drawing.

Poor guy, the only thing good about this design is he is using a nice RAAL ribbon
tweeter, but the rest of the design is not leaps ahead of his last one. I know
if you took my advice, he's rule. lol

I was never big on eye candy. I want to win the race with an rusty old beat
up muscle car with 2000 horse engine.

It does make some difference.... However it isn't the biggest point.... You probably did better going with the Def Techs than you could have done straight off DIY. Not saying anything bad about your skills, it is just that there are a lot of ins and outs in building a loudspeaker properly... :fyi:
