I've been under the impression that these two versions of this speaker differ in the way the woofer is installed but that the horn chambers are almost if not exactly the same. Would someone please enlighten me about the differences in these two versions? :blink:

Thats a nice looking cabinet my friend :applaud:, looks complicated too. Are you going to veneer it?
Good luck with it, cant wait to see it when its finished.

are they properly placed? Shouldn't they divide the outer horn sections along the symmetry line? At half the angle of the top horn boundary?
