Also, I would like to solicit criticism for this stator design. It has slots rather than holes, and I made it simply to cut down on machining time. On my CNC, it took over 20 mins to cut each stator with holes. With this design, it took less than 10 mins. How might it affect the sound produced?
Slots don't work well for me. I did roughly the same for stators, and it was abysmally terrible. It takes "no bass" to a whole new level. I have no idea why. My test was done by replacing stators and nothing else, even used the old diaphragm so the test was controlled and nothing else was going on.
Here is what mine looked like
