We altered the front baffle to be flush not like on the original plans all for the better I will say.

After some more time on them I will measure them and post the results.

The finish was to be satin oil finish only as requested by the customer.

Real nice work.

I would love to have a pair of the 8's sometime. Can't wait to see the measurements.

I once had a pair of Flat 10 and lots of friends had Beta 10

I think those Beta 10 are quite rare

That is just phenomenally pretty! To my mind some of the nicest Speaks I've seen. Coral to boot.

Wana trade for some nice big Sansui's with really neat lattice grilles?

Looking good once the drivers fit. Interesting how the lighting angle affects changes the difference in colour of the veneer on the 2 different size enclosures.

What amp(s) are being used, and more importantly, have you had a chance to hear them yet?

Well thanks for the comments.
These are being used now with some 300b's I will get a list of equipment if my client will allow me to post his list

My thoughts.
Well I let them burn in for 48hrs each set before I sat down for a listen here before I delivered them.
My over all perspective is shocking the way they respond completely different to vocals from each pair. Different is not a way to respond but shockingly difference.

With my client it took him a few years to get these drivers which are near perfect each pair. He does have a few other sets even a set of 10 passives as well. Yesterday we went over a few other options for a pair of 10 passives he has collected as well.With continuing to collet the Coral drivers he does want more of these built.

Imaging on the 10 seam effortless and more enjoyable than the 8.But this was only after a few minutes at his place without removing his large Tanny's from the listing area, just put them down and listen.

Over all my personal favourite of the 2 were the 10.

What my client was stunned with is he has 2 different speakers completly.

Veneering these cabinets to a mirror pair was a lot of work and looking at doing any others the cost would be more than we charged on these.
Now did it stop this customer? No as a fact he now wants a second pair of 8's for a family member ASAP.

We did alter the original plans as the plans as drawn several years ago had the front baffle set back from the sides and top, which was common for several designs of that vintage. But we made the driver chamber a little different to the plans plus more bracing in a few locations that could be a issue.

In the next few posts I will put up some measurements.
