My favorite is the bookshelf press full of books as used by Sebastian on the wooden Cornu build.
Hey whatever you have around. The problem with cinder blocks is they are not useful for anything else when done with clamping (other than building brick and mortar stuff or to make stands for a dorm room shelf).

P1 - channels completed, before caulk seal.
P2 - filets placed.
P3 - filets clamped.

Fingers crossed. wish me luck.
Man, that almost begs for a clear baffle. Nice work, Cal.

Oh, c'mon. I'm using my cinder blocks for a backyard maple sap boiler...so no speaker gluing for now.

That really depends on the depth of you FC syndrome. Could lead to a whole new project. Remember??

Two fresh blocks per FC project and soon....

Cal,

Just to be sure - your efforts are really impressive. Can't wait to hear about the results. Only having a little fun at your expense.

Yet another note to self: Cut the pieces to size before gluing together. Yellow glue is hard to cut with an Olfa knife.

Yes but like most things, I use them up on something. In this case they became base weights.

Cement is good !!! Made these last summer for a pair of 8" monitors from the PE forum. Have all the components - just need Spring to come to get them unstuck, thawed, cleaned up and painted

Here is another iteration of foam board construction with foam stands. Two Audience A3 Full range speakers per side in a traditional full SD, 1/4 wave at 40Hz. No tweeters needed here and the bass is that typical warm type that only TL can provide. The imaging is also stunning. Still need to do some measurements. Foam is a cheap prototyping material and these enclosures could be fabricated with 1/4" or 1/2" plywood and still maintain the narrow profile.

Looks like those drivers are gone from PE. Think 4 of the Vifas would work?

P.S. Sent Paul K. a link
