    it's no point to go on about interfiering with peoples opinions,"no disrespec" because most of you know what you are talking about, and people beg to differ, black gates do have a limited shelf life, so most of all , in my quater wave loudspeakers i have had them now for 17 years but i count my self lucky, as for most of my equipment, once i tried liquid cooled tweeters, also lived since a teen with all the models of tannoy dual concentrics,"i miss those" it's all personal view, why i rest my case is very time consuming for me to advice other, when there are a great lot of you who can do that very well, and for me your enthusiasem is very inspiring,thanks, i mean that.

    I'll get some shots up this arvo. They're not painted yet but, and I haven't finished tuning the ports, but they're sounding superb.

    Also, if you end up getting those polyester caps Simon was suggesting, you could offload the extras on me ;)

    OK, not hijacking, but for anyone's interest/suggestions:
    One is the concept (bracing was ended up more complex and with a vertical one as well), and the unpainted, finished article.

    How's this proceedingt? I'm in the same boat as you and I would be interested to know how much difference it made. The soldering itself looks fairly straightforward but I'd like to only have to do it once (what with all that wadding to mess around with) - so picking the right caps would be an advantage.. especially since those 16 uF jobs look like such a tight fit.
