    Thank you for the data. It appears from pictures I have seen of the Array 1400 that the "lip" of the horn, where the horn meets its enclosure in the SAM1HF, appears to be aligned with the baffle of the Array 1400. I guess that would also be where the VCs are aligned.

    VC Alignment

    I had found this post stating 38 mm from baffle to front edge of horn:

    Vertical distance is 1-1/2", the horn is offset forward by 38mm. But again: that might relate more to the VC alignment than anything else. So if you're not using the same horn and same LF cabinet the values would change.

    Got it - I'll also make sure the voice coils are aligned. Thanks so much for checking.

    Some Major Progress

    I finally got these put together enough to give them a listen. So far I'm very happy with them. I think they sound better than my Performance Series stacks which is saying a lot! The bass cabinets are 3.7 cu ft and I love the bass. The mids and highs are really clear and smooth. I have not connected the battery to the charged caps yet, I want to hear them both ways. I'm going to listen to them for a couple more days before final assembly and finishing. Name:  IMG1_1941.jpg

    This is how I am going to build the tops. I plan to paint the tops satin black and veneer the bottoms with walnut veneer.

    Thanks to all the members who have helped advise me with this project.

    Finished!

    I finally got them finished. I have been listening to them without the batteries installed in the CC networks, hoping to hear the difference after I install them. They sound really good without the batteries.
