Wow, I don't think I have ever seen a flatter 95 db driver/speaker cabinet combo!
This looks like the bomb to build if you want the ultimate Tabaq.

Thanks for posting those new sims Bjorn. Nice to see the bass be unaffected and the response smooth out even more. Its incredible how smooth that is, and the driver is at a better height to boot. Thanks so much!

Below are the updated Sketchup models of the speaker. The material is still 3/4" thick, and dimensions are internal as they were before. The depth has been rounded off to 16.25" instead of the ridiculous decimal it was before. The driver is now positioned 9" from the closed end, and the image was given a wood grain color and the visible ends of the material black color just for kicks. This is the final design, just need to get ahold of some Betsy K's (out of stock for 6-8 weeks) and other parts and pieces.

Thanks for sharing the design. Have been looking for a while for a "nice" looking and easy to build enclosure and this seems the best of all.
Should be a good match to my newly modded 8-watter ASL Wave-8

Not yet. The models above we're just posted yesterday. That's as far as I've gotten so far.

Ahh sorry, my eyes have failed me... I was referring to your "Join Date" as the post date. Good luck with the build! I will be attempting these as well.

Looks like this plan will fit on two piece of 3/4" plywood which is awesome.
Found two great options at HomeDepot here:

Birch

Maple

A cut plan for Home Depot:

1- Horizontal Rip 46 1/2" (or do 1/2" on one side first and then flip to do the othere side so you have nice edges)
2- 2x vertical rip 17 3/4" (or remove 1/2" first for nice edges)
3- 3x vertical rip 11"

Take the 11" boards to the cross saw

1- Cut first one to 15 3/8 (This is the front)
2- Second 11" board: cut a 16 1/4" piece (top)
3- From same board: cut a 17" piece (bottom)
4- From the same board: cut a 3 1/4" piece (port)

You still have about 25" or material left for braces, etc...

The best thing is to do all the same dimension cuts at the same time, so a little bit of planning is required.

(Am I reading the dimensions correctly?)

(You will need to watch/supervise the person doing the cuts and measurements to make sure they are doing it right. Talk nicely to them and tell them this is for a critical project :-))

His dimensions were all internal dimensions since the plywood size is nominal. I will be using 3/4". Here are the dimensions for each piece that I came up with. Do they match up with your cuts glt?

Front: 11" x 43 3/8"
Back: 11" x 46 1/2"
Side: 17 3/4" x 46 1/2"
Top: 11" x 16 1/4"
Bottom: 11" x 17"
Baffle: 11" x 3 1/4"
