I have a minidsp, some walnut veneer and the Alpair's, and some amplifiers.

I should be able to fit it all onto one board of ply 45, and the Peerless woofers are 130 for 2.

under 200 from where I am now, lots and lots of time though, will be sped up if I CNC the parts.

I started making a full size mockup from MDF of the teardrop cabinet. Should have it all glued up tomorrow, and turned later in the week.

Pics to follow.

Here is the mdf mockup, each wall size was just guessed and made smaller than the last. A bit rough and ready, but should be able to lathe it smooth and see how the process works. The flat face is just big enough to be able to route in a rebate for the alpair driver. And the overall dimensions were limited to a 10" radius as to visually match the 10" woofer.

It has been drying over the weekend. On thursday I will sand the driver hole face flat and square, make a faceplate to hold on the lathe, and when my new lathe arrives turn it into its final shape.

Run them through something like IrfanView to reduce size and resolution. I usually post at 800x600 85k.
