That should be an impressively efficient box. What's panel resonance, if any, like? I've wanted to build something for a while out of ~10ga CRS -maybe a pipe-horn, so it's nice to see something else being built.

the easiest way to sum them up is that they do not color the sound at all( not boxy) .they are invisible , i have a pair made out of BB to use as a comparison

Arrrrg, acronyms. What do you mean by CRS? I know that as describing a memory defect.

Hey this is the way to make speakers! It could hardly be any easier, and no surface issues as with wood/MDF.

Why don't we see more boxes made of steel? What's the drawback?

From where I stand, this could very well mean that I have made my last wooden box, if steel works so well, as it would take a fraction of the effort to make a steel box, compared to making a wooden box.

I see some plasma cutting in my nearest future

this is where having ten buddies with nothing to do might come in handy. Is it just your phone or is that speaker enormous? I am excited for you, looks great.

CRS = Cold Rolled Steel.

Why aren't many cabinets made using steel etc? Weight, as mentioned, and, especially, cost. Not just of the materal (that isn't the main problem) but of working with the stuff. Most DIYers and companies are geared up for wood, not metals, even if they have the experience to work with it. There are other details too, but those are mainly excuses.

So what I hear you're saying is:

Go ahead, make yourself a pair of Abbey clones of steel?
