Are you going to take over the living room with these monsters or have you moved upstairs yet?

Probably staying downstairs in the family room as it was when you were here.

I built them for moving the stereo into the small downstairs music room, but I think they will sound better in the big room and maybe they can go into the corners which be more WAF.


Looking good professor. Getting close.

Thanks Charlie

Gettin rollin on these now.

1, 2. Gluing on the other back panel
3, 4. Install wiring
5. Test fitting the front baffle
6, 7. Gluing on the front baffle
8. Ready for the final 2 side panels

The side panels have a 45 chamfer cut on a table saw. They are 53 inches long and for some reason the chamfered edge is not straight. So when it fits up under the front baffle overhang it leaves a gap. All 8 side pieces are the same way. Tomorrow I will try to recut them, as there is enough extra meat to recut that edge, but I'm not sure why it happened. Will have to make extra careful saw setup.

Looking mighty good Rich. Looks like you are getting pretty close to wiring and testing.

Keep up the good work.

Slow now, but 2 of 4 boxes are built and wired.

I hate to sound naggy, but any more progress Rich? Just curious.

Thanks for the bump Steve!

The arrays are on ice for now. I have bigger fish to fry at the moment.

But I need to clean up my audio messes all over the house, so I will have to finish them soon.

Tapping on the undamped box makes the large internal panels ring with high Q. So I need to damp and brace those.
