Default Pics of CNC routered Big Fun Horn

I've just finished skinning the CNC cut horn with MDF panels, which were pre-cut to size. You see in the photos I've used biscuit joints on all corners. No screws used at all so far.

For cabling, I'm using Cat6, which I'll braid into the two channels.

Sound deadening in the cavities is accoustic wool, plus heavy felt (furniture removal blanket!).

Big? Scarily so...probably approaching 100Kgs each.

Looking forward to hearing them.

Regards. Andrew. Sydney.

Looks great! I am not familiar with the design, how does the driver fit in? Looks like it'd go bottom right but am not sure how

The driver cut-out is not shown in the pics.

To get the idea - see this link -

http://www.lowther-america.com/bigfunv21.pdf

The compression chamber is at the top left corner.

I've noticed a couple of Coral 8-inch and 10-inch drivers on Ebay, so I might track them down. If I miss out, it will be Lowther.
