Dave,

Very nice work - both the drivers and cabinets look great - kudos to you and Bernie! Chris should be a happy man.

ve also been looking at those Bamboo cutting boards. Have you considered those before? I'm sure you have.
I've been thinking the same - but pretty expensive and 1/2" is the max thickness I am finding.

I recommend you do some reading about working purpleheart before you get seduced by the appearance. It's nothing like working bloodwood.

In my experience, purpleheart is hard on the tools and hard on the woodworker.

I was thinking Purpleheart from South America.... I've used Bloodwood from the same continent before..... pretty stuff. Finding enough of it is the hard part.

I've also been looking at those Bamboo cutting boards. Have you considered those before? I'm sure you have.

That was pretty much my experience with the bloodwood. It's incredibly hard, waxy and dense, but brittle at the same time. Wore out some nice Porter Cable tools on it, the dealer could not believe it. It also burns when routing pretty easily due to the above factors. I found going very slowly and backing off a lot giving the tool time to breathe helped.

I'll follow your advice and read up.

If I were to put one Alpair cabinet on its side (center) and two upright (LR) would that affect tonality or coherence across the front stage at all? What about baffle step? Originally, I was thinking of three short boxes, all the same to fit under the projection screen as the 'ideal' front stage matched sound, but I'm weakening on going the usual way instead (different LR and center cabinets). What say you?

3" is better but of course you have to combine it with midbass

I assume you mean the W3-1797S.

Any full ranger in the Tang Band flat cones better than W4-1798S? Keep in mind I only need them down to 100 Hz. I have a decent subwoofer already.

Anyone (maybe you?) compared them with the Alpair?
