Melo,
I have been following your adventures with the Vifa's and really like what you do. The boxes look like a lot of fun and the process is most of the enjoyment sometimes. As Thom. Edison said about his 10,000 failed attempts before perfecting the light bulb - he looks at them as lessons learned (what not to do).

Btw, some people like the imagery of Monet's very much

I have been pursuing smaller-scale wacky ideas with just single Vifa's. To date the following builds have all been tried with the trusty old TC9FD:
1. Wall mount folded and flat TL in stereo
2. Desktop/bookshelf BLH
3. Cornu spiral wall mount
4. FH3-inspired floor stander
5. Folded bookshelf MLTL
6. Flat wall mount BIB (Flatter is Better or FIB)
7. ??? Possibly might try 4 driver array in floor standing MLTL

One interesting thing about this process is that the driver remains the fixed point and you can really see the difference in sound the *cabinet* makes.

Keep up the great work and the cool ideas!

On the opposite end of the audio chain, I am going to build directional shotgun mics using PVC pipes with slots cut into them and the cute WM61A capsules - it's in the "Everything Else" forum. What are you going to do with focused sound sources but zap unsuspecting people from far away with Barry Mannylow

Hi Melo, you have any plans with that ambiolith? Maybe you could consider slicing it in half and place each line in the correns of the room sort of like normal stereo. Drivers are already angled, you could just lean it against the wall. Try it. You may like it.

A parabolic line reflector? That will have a tall but narrow beam that you can paint sound (I mean Barry) across people on the sidewalk as you drive your car down the road.

Kind of like pushbroom Barry mobile...

Yes, this is what i'm going to do when I add the acoustic reflector to make this an omni.

See this thread:
Omni full range line array???
