The reason I'm thinking 8x4 is that it would be very easy and 8 ft will get under a typical ceiling, I've built a pair of Vulcans and I love them, now I'm thinking could they be just a bit better? Also I have a 1000 sq ft room for them to live in.

well, just siamese twin them, C-37 the boxes, upgrade drivers to Fostex's next ES/R driver that size, or try something really silly....

sooner or later, you just gotta sit back and enjoy the music

I should try that sometime

chrisby, are those cushions for the comfort of those who wish to get right inside the speakers? Is it some sort of health and safety issue? Magnificently mad, or should I say without compromise.

Cheers Steve

It might be obscene but would clear/smoked lexan sides with black lexan innards work?

seeing these transparent drawings makes me wonder.

It's an unremarkable varnish with an enormous markup which is flogged to the gullible as a universal application. Makes everything sound better. Size, MOE values, resonant behaviour etc., make no difference, a coating of this stuff & all your problems are solved.

SY analysed a sample. His findings are here: C37 similar material and here: C37 similar material

Could the Vulcans be scaled up Scott? Congratulations on a superb design by the way.

Thanks. Glad you're still liking them.

No, scaling cabinets is at best problematical. I would have to do a complete new design from scratch. It's possible, but unless there is significant demand for such a cabinet, which I doubt (I respectfully beg to differ that 8ft would fit under most ceilings; my own for e.g. are exactly 8ft tall, which is typical for a post-Victorian suburban semi in the UK), I probably wouldn't be able to get around to it any time soon. Note too that if a symmetrical configuration is employed, the driver would end up 4ft above the ground, significantly higher than most people's listening position, so it would need to be angled down appropriately. I like the excess of the idea though.
