    Nor me , as a johnny come lately. would be a tremendous shame if interpersonal frictions stopped the sharing of knowledge :S Apologies if that comes across as a little self serving, given i've expressed an interest in building a set of these. #peace

    Just out of curiosity , what is it about the c15w spec wise that isn't available in other drivers ? Or is it just a case that they hit on something magical with their formula for it? Is the evm15l still in production? Evm12 seems available here ( europe ) but only crusty looking used p.a 15l's :s Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk

    For sure , decent c15w would be unobtanium here. I've a vague feeling another poster said in another thread that the kappa 15c didn't model well In the classic. I need to brush up on horn response I think. Got a mini DSP nano to play with once I've decided what I'm doing Sent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F using Tapatalk

    Amazing thread. Had been curious about this cabinet for a while so I'm super grateful for ajsons and the other contributor's for demistifying those sketchy old plans. Although I'm sure twin evm12ls would be pretty spectacular, that runs me about £1000.00 in the u.k. Any other driver recommendations? Wondering if the eminence kappa 15c that Claude recommends for his quarter pie is suitable * Or for a few dollars more -> http://www.precision-devices.com/Product-Details/PD153ER ? Thanks (* That's another cab I'm wanting to try out if it'll fit well enough in my small room ) Sent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F using Tapatalk
  5. Are you intending to build one? Must be curious after working on the drawings The Dean appealed to me as it's quite a handsome cabinet , fitting neatly into corners without intruding too far out into the room. But as stated , I'm less than confident about my cabinetry skills for that one. Seems hard to go wrong with the q.pie given its straightforward design and a helpful forum including the designer himself and other builders. Build cost looks very reasonable too.

  6. Thats definately a big attraction of the design* ( in conjunction with the expected performance ) . what is the go to method for a nice neat curve on the mouth section? Router on a 4 ft radius arm ? * though about making a university classic dean. But it doesn't seem to measure better and then there's so much opportunity for failiure with all those angles to cut ( and sketchy plans ) Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  7. Wish i had lovely cabinet making skills. Anything i make is going to look 'budget p.a' :s Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  8. Interesting post. I guess i could run them in a smallish box or open baffle above the qpies while im fashioning the other horns i mentioned. Wouldn't sell. Im in the u.k so its that bit harder to come across items like them again. The eminence driver you mention is easily and cheaply available so im happy to follow your suggestion there ( i did once ring eminence and at the time they were happy to sell me k33's too ) thanks.

  9. Better than an altec 604-8g? ( which i already have) ( i can sure make something else with those if so ) Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  10. I LIKE it . thanks Claude , appreciate the input. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  11. Man cave melancholy :- hi Claude , firstly thanks for offering your interesting design free to diy'ers. Would you be kind enough to consider if i have a workable option. The problem is my new listning room. It really is a cave. 7ft 5 wide , 8 high , 10ft 5 long. I have sketched ( horribly ) a few possible orientations . Width ways on the floor would mean trimming a few inches of the tips of the mouth. Any issues here with each channel essentially firing directly into the other one ? ( would a central divider/reflector make any sense? ) Below the q pie operating range im looking at either bill fitz table tuba ls in corners or the lab12 design you have posted. Above will be a fane studio8m in the pi midhorn and an altec 288 in a tractrix. I've altec 604 to use in the qpie or if its not practical in my room a set of karlson k15's as i do likw that karlson kick. These are all parts i have to hand. Just wish i had a bigger room Regards Gary Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
