    Here's another picture of the XPL-250 that I shot in a hurry.

    The LE109 really is a one-off. Greg thought he used a "half-weight" 112H/2108H type cone and then made up the difference with aquaplas.

    The 095Ti here is coated with aquaplas.

    "If it's metal, coat it."

    Substrate is irrelevent with respect to the question of "should I or shouldn't I coat it?".
    Al, Ti, Be - coat it with aquaplas. It takes the "zing" out.

    Very recently I noticed that statement had been amended.

    "If it moves, coat it."

    The 095Ti and 046Ti are a very difficult components to work with. They are very forward and the staggered baffles in the XPL Series are a must.
    The L250/250Ti/XPL250 baffle also "works" due to the slope.

    I actually have two versions and I patterned neither after the XPL Series or L250/250Ti/XPL-250.

    One version is a knock-off of the 4315 style because I couldn't help myself (Besides I had to use up the can of JBL Blue Bo so graciously sent me).
    121H, 112H, 093Ti aquaplased, 046Ti aquaplased. Bi-amp only.

    The other version is a minimal baffle, staggered version.
    The 093Ti and 046Ti enclosure is slightly wider than their frames.
    The 112H enclosure is slightly wider than it's frame.
    112H, 093Ti aquaplased, 046Ti aquaplased. Bi-amp only.

    Can you tell me if the enclosure is essentially the same as the L250 et al in terms of overall dimensions? The enclosure in the photo seems to follow a European market model, at least in terms of the beveled edges. May well be an illusion but the enclosure above seems smaller.

    It's an illusion. They are full blown L250/250Ti sized enclosures.

    Aquaplased 093Tis, interesting idea. Wonder how they would sound in XPLs. Are you applying it yourself?

    They are rather unique, like Greg's LE109's.

    Wonder how they would sound in XPLs.

    I've never tried them in a stock XPL system so I can't say.

    In reviewing this old thread a couple questions come to mind:

    1. Did anyone build a XPL-250 clone or update a 250Ti with 093/095Ti and 046Ti drivers?

    2. Is Aquaplas a simple coating? Does anyone know what it is and how it is applied? If simply coating a metal dome improves it's performance and lessens it's distortion and "ring", then isn't it something worth trying on say a 035-TiA?

    There's a lot on the topic here if you search a bit...
    then isn't it something worth trying on say a 035-TiA?
    someone else thought so:

    The picture shows the speaker on top (kind of an L26 if memory serves) sitting on top of a matching cabinet shown holding LPs ...

    Seawolf found one of the speakers recently at his local thrift warehouse ... http://audioheritage.org/vbulletin/s...ad.php?t=20028

    What if..

    Ok, the XPL-250 looks interesting.. but what if one were to use a 2245H, 2204H, 096Ti and a 035Ti?

    Or perhaps better a 2245H, 2204H, Mid and Tweeter from a Yamaha NS-1000?

    Maybe best of all and 2245H, 2204H and a BMS 4590 ?

    Seems to me that any of the above would be a nice combination of drivers.

    Recently, I came into some 2245H and am contemplating such a system. I sure could use ideas...
