BK-16 and Audio Nirvana Super 6.5
 
I couldn't wait to finish the other cabinent so I put in my Audio Nirvana Super 6.5 into the one BK-16 cabinent that I bought from madisound. Wow. Fantastic!

I originally had the ans6.5's in weeny monitor size cabs. No bass at all. The BK-16's have a nice balanced sound. Now I need to finish the other cab, stain, and varnish. I'll report back with tests on my other amps once I get the other one finished.

Initial thoughts. The ans6.5 need more high end with Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism SACD. A super tweeter would be a good idea. Otherwise they sound excellent as-is with Miles Smiles and the Bongos Bongos Bongos LP.

Looks nice.

Where did you find the plans for your enclosure?

I'm not sure exactly where the plans are from. I got the flat pack from Madisound. I figure after I buy all the cutting tools needed, wood, and extra wood cause I messed up, it would be about the same as the flat pack. I would guess a bench saw and a router would be minimal tools to do this from scratch.

Finished finally!

My listening setup in the picture above:

Marantz 8b
Glassware stepped attenuator (on top of the Marantz)
Lite Audio LS7b preamp
Rega P3 w/ DIY opamp phono preamp
Forty buck Sony SACD player

Impressions:

The bass won't blow you away, but it is sufficient. They really showcase the Marantz's mid's. I'm sure they're far from perfect, but I haven't ever heard better!

Congratulations. Those look nice and produce the tunes to your liking as well. A winner all round!. :)

Cheers

My next act will be to find a way to protect the drivers from little fingers, crayons, and bananas. Metal grills would be most effective for cost and ruggedness, but will probably effect the sound in a bad way. Cloth grills would be nice, but would likely have a 3hr lifespan around toddlers. For now I have to truck them back and forth from a safe place. I may try placing them upside down on top of the entertainment console.
