    Anyone out there clone these? I know they have a vifa tweeter and a peerless woofer. Judging by the dimensions it is a 6 1/2" woofer and the tweeter looks like one of the dual concentric tweeters. I looked at klone audio and didn't come across anything, I might have missed it though.

    Thanks for the reply Thomas. The pics look like the first kestrel.[​IMG] This is the kestrel 2 transmission line. looks very similar, what do you think these dimensions are? I'm not very good at judging that type of thing. I apparently cant post pics if you go to meadowlarks website and click on the photos tab you will see a pic of Pat Mcginty holding a kestrel 2 with the transmission line exposed.

    Print the picture. You have 3 known dimensions from it. You can use those to index the cabinet in the photo creating a 'scale' like that on a map. For more info regarding this process read THIS link
