Please don't. What if you veneer them with something with a nice figure and do a french polish? Then you can sell them for even more and anyone can buy them. Not just my twenty year old neighbor who is broke like most twenty year olds.

I think when it's time to do them I will allow someone else the pleasure. Finishing is not my specialty. I am a framer at best. Sell them? Geez then I'd be down to 31 pairs and that simply won't do.

A local fellow collected interesting cars. Built his own museum. He was offered a staggering sum for one of his cars. He hired a British panel thumper and a few other specialists. They built him an exact replica. He could drive the replica without the insurance company going nuts. So he sold the original.

So if the right offer comes along... take it!

Cal, is there a thread somewhere that shows what is going on with those speakers? Do the holes in the back sum up to a tuned port? What are the rectangles infront of the two higher speakers and, more generally, - wow!

Bit of a thread hijack though... Mind you the 3M thing was a ways off topic I had no idea what 3M stood for other than, in all seriousness, a brand I can trust.

Hi Mick,

I was away at the diy fest. Yes the thread is here.

The Flying V, Cal style

The holes in the back of the Altecs are because Dave showed me how that reduces the boxy sounding midrange and I really like the effect. The woofer is sealed. I'm not quite sure what you mean with the rectangles. Are you talking about the bases?

Ever try a Schroeder diffuser inside the box?

Hi Simon,
Nope and I'm not sure that would do it. Once Dave showed me, what is similar to an open back mid, I feel a bit spoiled. My ears really like it.

Well next thing to try is a diagonal baffle/brace inside the woofer enclosure to keep the woofers from "Chugging."

But you also migh want to try a larger mid box with diffusion.
