I am no expert, but I would think as long as the internal volume stays the same you would be OK. Plus having solid all around allows for a nice big roundover which I believe is a good idea.

I have just looked back at the date of my original post...16th October 2010!

Could possibly be a contender for the longest speaker build! :-)

Anyway, back on track and due to fit the drivers and complete the build by the end of the week

I am grateful for any comments you may wish to leave

@Tripmaster - not even close to the longest build. I have a pair of Dynaudio Gemini's I started in 2000. Not done yet!! I think I may hold the record.

the white paint is very reminiscent of the original 70s EPI product that kickstarted this whole project - nicely done

Thanks Chris. The colour was more by chance. I really liked the white primer/undercoat, so decided to go with a white top coat too

Great thread. I have a rough looking pair of Epi M75s that I'm trying to fix up. They appear to be identical to the MT-1 but with rubber feet rather than extending the corners to the ground. The drivers are CTS and supposedly the same as those originally used in the Bose 901 series I. The cabinets are so rough that I might just build new ones rather than try and patch up the current ones. I realize that this project was geared toward a specific driver but does anyone have any comments as to how I may improve on the original design?

I have no way of measuring the drivers and don't have specs for the CTS Bose drivers. I suppose that without that info that replicating the original cabinets would be best.
