A while back I built my own mixing monitors for my home recording studio. I used some 8” mid-woofers I already had and found some 1” tweeters on closeout from a discontinued commercial studio monitor. Cabinets are 3/4” MDF. For the tweeter waveguide I started with a piece of MDF drilled a 1 1/4” hole and then used chamfer bit leaving 1/8” for the bearing to ride on. after measuring the widest point I used a hole saw to drill the next layer and then chamfered it too and glued them up. This gave me the 1 1/2” deep conical horn. Lots of sanding and dust masks on this one. I got it prepped and smooth with filler primer first then about 10 coats of rattle can red. after paint cured I wet sanded and used automotive polish.
