Default Demetris, Milevas...and others too...

seems like the Hemp driver thread has become pretty convoluted, so I thought I'd start a new thread for the Demetri and the Mileva speakers, and builder experiences. Not strictly for these builds, but others too, of similar types. I attach a couple of photos of the Demetri/Hemp FR8 speakers recently completed..

Of course Dave is smiling, proud Papa that he is.

Here are some photos of a Hemp FR8c in a Demetri as played at RMAF 2007.

There is something inherently beautiful in the proportions of Demitri; almost Japanese in a sense...

Two different yet equally beautiful Demitri builds. Really nice work. I have read some positive reports regarding the grass shack speakers... so Nanook, how are you liking your Demitris?

Cheers
Raymond

Stunning work, all. The WB proportions are lovely, and Dave's internal layout is artistry IMO. Love them.
