Nice! The color helps the integration of the suprabaffle, and makes apparent what an odd and interesting acoustical design the BIB is.

There's lots of Scandinavian architecture students that would LOVE these I predict build-them-yourself BIBs from IKEA someday.

They look great! Any stuffing?

Also, i notice you swapped out your low cost driver for a fostex. I see it behind one of the fiestas... Which fostex did you choose?

Gozilla, u have a sharp eye, el cheapo driver was actually installed in another cabinet (even taller) and sounded great (gave it away to a friend), so this was my 2nd BIB, this time with FE107E and is a keeper as my main speaker. Smooth bass.

For the Fiesta BIB: I used a carpet layment behind the speaker and the acoutic polyfil below the speaker placement (to the cone end) for the Fiesta BIB as recommended. Initial listening is very nice, will wait to see if the sound changes...

Default update

The speaker is broken in since I left it on for two weeks, this weekend I did some listening thru my 30 year old lovely Kenwood receiver and t-amp clone.

I am surprised by the bass, rock solid and more than deep enough for non rockers. I am not sure if the "unfolding" of the regular BIB has any advantages but these 3" speakers in fiesta is really good with variety of music. Am surprised by the even orchestral music, jazz and popular is extraordinary. Midrange and high sound is not surprising but the quality and extent of bass is...

It has been a while since I built those and gave it away to my relative. Now can't get it back.

If u have speakers of interest, try to get to BIB calculator and the folks here can give u full dimentions of "unfolded", inverted BIB. I may have energy to try this again but don't have the same speaker.

Please let me know if u go ahead and will like to follow your progress. My craftmanship is all amateur just with a circular saw, nice paint and lots of glue/patch to hide the workmanship or lack of.
