Default Fiesta-iBIB!

when I asked Scottmoose some advise on iBIB using Tang Band W3-871S, he drew me a line sketch of his suggestion.

From there my imagination took off (I should be on something to slow me down...) and using sketchup and here is what I came up with. It is somewhat top heavy so I had to construct a base/foot and I managed to build it in 2 parts, so the baseactually separates for easy move and at same time reasonably stable. (we have occasional earthquakes here in Southern California). All made from MDF except parts of base.

My kids saw the paint job and said "that's fiesta colors..."

The sound?, I also built a DelSol (smaller speaker) using same color and near identical speaker and BBB continues to surprise me with the fullness of base. I like the colors on DelSol so went with the same color but in reverse. Midrange and upper is more than adequate for non rock music IMHO.

Now have to look at Harvey...

Gychang, lovely work!!

Just a couple of questions:

It appears that the line is tapering down from the top, which looks open. So the line is not folded, or is it?

iBIB is understand by all here (I think) to mean that the opening is towards the floor. If the opening in your BIBs are towards the ceiling, perhaps the title should go through another change.

Thanks,

They're an unfolded TQWT as driver Fs is too high for a folded box to be especially practical.

In my excitement of trying to put up some pictures, I made several mistakes. The speaker is not inverted BIB, you are right of course. It is unfolded and opened at the top (like the regular BIB).

Moderator: the title should be "Fiesta-BIB!", sorry about this.
