I was going to comment on that. With askward shaped speakers it is nice to have convienient handholds, with this idea one does not have to trust that the cabinet topology supply them.

Thanks Mr Bass.

Aye, they've been blowin' me away for ages now, its a combination of Scott and 4" drivers y'know. I blame them both! He brought a large double mouthed pair of Fostex loaded Harvey Cabs (I think) to a DIY HiFi meet up the North of England in about 2009. He played a Doobie Brothers track and the Doob's were stood there in front of me... since then I've been hooked on biggish cabs and small ish drivers. Awethumne!

S'pleasure Mr D, I love their sound and sticking piccies up on how I made 'em! The Frug3's are in two 'heavy traffic' corners of my project room. Both have a door on either side. One to the 'stock cupboard' and the other to the rest of the house. Fitting handles makes it easier to shift the FH's out the way when I want access to either door! THAT type of handle doesn't ingress inside the cab in anyway, the 'sacred ground' behind the driver isn't breeched at all. Made sense to me

Aren't those pretty blue 126 the ones Scott had in Harvey (the 1st spawn)?

We might have to conspire to give them measles.

Yep, I think so Dave. The cabs a crazy colour too IIRC. I trawled through some piccies of the 1st ever DIY Fest I ever went to in 2006 (not 2009 as I thought earlier) and found the exact cabs and drivers (I think).

Cheers BassyBoy! Aye, every good quality sheet of BB Ply that B+Q had I found the grain going down the 4ft span not the 8ft span, bonkers, especially after I'd shifted my cut sheet to get the grain matched, doh! It all went out the window but the quality was good so I just went with it (baybeee).
