Default Klipschorn Upgrades Stage-2

Well I've decided to go for Stage-2 this year of my Klipschorn upgrades. I've been holding off due to the price of the 2" compression drivers I want (B&C DCM-50) for the squwakers. I just found out that the price has dropped from about $1,300 per pair to $780. My upgrades will consist of the following:

From Daves Fastlane Audio (Dave Harris)
1. Eliptrac-400 squwaker horns.
2. Custom motorboards with black grill cloth.
3. ContacT tweeter horns.

From ALK Engineering (Al Klappenberger)
1. B&C DCM-50 2" compression drivers (squwakers).
2. B&C DE-120 1" compression drivers (tweeters).

I'll let you know how it goes and I'll post photos when I get home and install them.

Al recommends the extreme slope crossovers for the B&C drivers.

This is the ES5800 (squawker to tweeter)


This is the ES400 (woofer to squawker)

@Rpatt - I see Al likes using the Clarity ESA caps. I used those in my Cornwalls and my Heresy. I had thought about using the MR's but the ESA's work fine!
