Oh, the 6x12's working correctly will easily outperform the 2x12's.  They need to be on concrete though for structural reinforcement.

Next stage of the testing.  Add the OB planar top and see how it works.

The dspMusikLCD 2x8 crossover it working and now to make some new measurements with CLIO Pocket.

The new GR Neo3 and BG Neo10 open baffle planar top flat packs are on the way along with the new HX300 amp boxes.  Hope to have them by next week for install and testing.  A new pair of GR Neo3's are here for mod to install once the baffles are built.

Once these are built, the 2x12's and dspMusikLCD crossover will be setup for frequency response testing with the triamp setup.

The new HX300 amp boxes are here from Jay.  Time for some gluing.

Here are the flat pack parts for an HX300 servo amp box. Nicely cut and easy to glue with the biscuits.

Takes less than 10 minutes for me to glue and clamp. Then let dry overnight and ready to apply a finish.

Latest pictures of The Monoliths new planar baffles from Jay. Also one with the servo subs.

Finished HX300 amp boxes with an HX300 test fit.

Looking forward to building these when the flat packs arrive!

Does Jay do great work or what!?!  What a nice guy, too.  :thumb:

Thanks Dave and Charles,

Here are the updated baffles from Jay with much improved frequency response.

They are ready for testing and then a set of baffle cut to build up.

doug s,

It is a waveguide from the design and testing point for the planar tweeter.  Does a very good job with the GR Neo3.

Glue-up has begun.

Started with the short side wing and small clamps.  Glue and let set.

Attach bottom plate to baffle and short side wing with glue and clamp let it set.

After that will attach the long side wing with glue and let it set over night.

Baffle #1 is glued and drying. Will let it set overnight and glue baffle #2.
