EPI & Epicure Speakers:
The Epicure 3.0
The Epicure 3.0 is a speaker designer's dream project in many ways.
The cabinet is a truncated pyramid with curved edges and the tweeter mounted on top in a small round plastic capsule, in an attempt to time-align the voice coils and reduce the effect of the cabinet on the sound.
The grills were designed to offer no acoustic interference, although now they offer none at all, since they all disintegrated with time.
The cabinet is well-reinforced with cross braces. The 10" woofer, 6" midrange, and 1" concave dome tweeter are all optimized for the overall design.

This is the original version, from documentation and several examples:
There is a later version that has the tweeter mounted further back on the top panel. This move resulted in some changes to the crossover between the midrange and tweeter.
