Smile Hohl Flute Transmission Line Project Complete

Presenting the organ flutes...

Acknowledgements first:

Martin J. King for the free use of his research and worksheets.

Vikash for the web page template. (I still managed to screw up the scripting though, if someone can help me correct what I did wrong. His template looked a lot better than the page).

A Picture, followed by a link to my site, where more details and construction are posted. The site will evolve, hopefully.

Click the image to open in full size.

This is my new DIY site; stay tuned!

Thanks to all interested,
Dave

PS--

These are wife pleasers, not Dave pleasers. She's pleased with them, though, so I'm happy enough. Here's our conversation last night:

"Do you like them?"
"Oh, yes. I'm pleased how they turned out. Much better than the caterpillars."
"You didn't like the caterpillars?"See here
"Oh, they're Ok, but by this time on the caterpillars, you were busily trying to kill the family" See here

Silence.

"Oh yeah..."

So I'm happy. On to my BrianGT Gainclone to power them!

Clever design. Good job! I bet those modded 881s sound quite good.

I'll replace your email address with your new web site on the cateroiller article at TLS.org...

That web page does need some work... if you want some help or suggestions mail me...

I gave them a little workout yesterday. I'm impressed. And they look soooooo cool.

The "official" listening test is a few days away yet. I'll let you know!

They're working out great. I listen for hours without any fatigue at all; this I attribute mostly to Mark McKenzie's mod, which I found here at Madspeaker (McKenzie Acoustical Design) . When I mount them onto the wall (as they were designed), I'll post another review.

Meanwhile, I'm pleased with the accurate response and good detail as far as the design promised. Nicely detailed staging, to be honest.

Hi Dave, you didn't escape the quotes which is why the page doesn't render properly.

i.e
'We've magically transformed into panels for speakers!'
should be
'We\\'ve magically transformed into panels for speakers!'

I've made the changes here: http://www.vikash.info/audio/downloa...iew/index.html

Ah...much better, thanks!

Still something funky wrong. Do you see a bunch of empty boxes below the thumbs?

You saved the source file with File -> Save As I think which contains the rendered output not the plain source.

foolproof method:
go to this url: http://www.vikash.info/audio/downloads/imageview/

Right click on 'index.html.txt'
Select 'save target as'
Save the file as 'index.html'
Upload this file to your sever and voila (hopefully)

That did it! Thanks Vikash.

My BrianGT GC is assembled. My decdun preamp is nearly finished (thanks Nick!~). The living room has been freshly painted. The hohlflutes will be mounted in their intended location therein, the amp and preamp will be installed, and then I will post back.
