Default New Cabinet for NF5EX

My good friend Sanjay Nambiar redesigned the orginal Feastrex cabinets .. I heard it briefly.. Excellent sounding cabinets.. It's quite an overkill cabinets with Vertical and Horizontal bracings.. 1" plywood used all round. Will post some pictures of the cabinet below....

Waooo... mean looking bracing, out to kill all box resonance.
Is the sounding a bit dead with this implementation compared to your pryamid box?

the bracing may not be an issue... the paper bags may . i tried it in D5nF BR cabs, and find it takes away some life from the sound.

...a very solid job nonetheless. true to mr. lim's work. for internal stuffing, try those harness use for refurbishing sofas or car seats.

Hi Bro,

This box is also pryamid like mine... Sanjay drew it as such. I really like the openness and clarity of this box. My current box is still a bit boxy... Anyway, went down to Mr Lim's place yesterday.. I'm asking him to build another more overkill box for me...

I don't hear the box at all with this design as compared to William's original version. Pure driver all the way .... Love it.

Hi,

Yes, very nice meeting you too... Really like the CDs you brought. I was too was quite surprised at how well Tony's Delite amp matched the NF5Ex.

Keep in touch.. Will invite you over again once I get my new cabinets done up..

Cheers

William
