    Just as an exercise in making the best sounding speaker system from your existing set of boxes and drivers? Put the 2226s in which ever pair of boxes is tuned the lowest. Put the E130s in the other...

    I suspect Clair had horns made to their spec by Community or DDS but I also suspect less than a few hundred of such horns existed back in the day and fewer now. If the OP wanted to recreate them now...

    The horn looks like a variation on a DDS 60x40. Those pop up on eBay occasionally with a two bolt throat drill out. They need a metal adaptor plate to mount three bolt 1" drivers. A very popular horn...

    One possibility would be to remove the existing crossovers and trace out their circuitry and then post the schematic here and ask if someone familiar with charge coupled crossovers to design the...

    I use a Focusrite 2i2 as an audio interface and a Superlux ECM999 is my low cost mic option. Used on eBay for this kind of thing is usually a good source.

    My experience with cheap Chinese knock off diaphragms. The Radians are the best option for 2440 and 2425 style diaphragms.

    I've posted this before but it seems worth reupping.

    You're right, I'm wrong. I just did a quick look at my 'goes into' list before I posted which isn't quite a comprehensive view as the document you used.

    The Meyer 1401s that I've seen are rebranded Yamaha drivers and AFAIK the diaphragms have long been unobtainium so I think I'd be a bit more tender with them than a first order high pass filter....

    For a home stereo cabinet that doesn't get bumped around it's very unlikely to be a problem. That said JBL portable systems support their compression drivers with a yoke, a simple piece of plywood...

    Bi-amping is a significant part of achieving the high output levels that the 4350s were designed for. If you don't want or need that capacity why not clone a different, less ambitious speaker project?
