A good friend once postulated that the number of cats a person keeps is inversely proportionate to their sanity.

We have two. Two humans, two cats. We rationalize that that leaves us at equilibrium.

Dave, Ive wondered if yours are all domesticated or if some of the pride are semi feral?

Fred (name inspired by Angel), Francis (named after Drake), Kristina (aka kris-tuna since that is all she eats) never come inside, Ulyses rarely comes in, but the rest do... we live on 4 acres and all the cats spend appreciable time out doors (in the summer we sometimes won't see some of them for a week at a time)

I've two cats... that make me certifiable? Aristotle can open doors by the doorknob and Kitty just eats a lot. He named himself, since he didn't answer to his given name only Kitty.

Why am I writing this? I must be insane.

Oh, why cardboard? What if someone sets a drink on it... it'll leave a mark.

i'm really glad you asked that question.

i went to see this show:
http://guggenheim.org/exhibitions/si...rms/flash.html

with this person, for whom i built the speakers:
http://www.mkgallery.com/artists/colman/colman.html

and my brain started to spin.

i am a huge fan of minimalism, especially 1980's new york minimalism, and the statement these artists were making by rejecting intricate imagery and color and traditional "art" materials and frames for reduced forms, latex paint, wallboard, styrofoam, concrete, flourescent fixtures, dirt and open spaces or whole rooms, and art you were allowed to take or write on or otherwise alter.

we chuckled through the whole show. this was deep shiz, and funny, and it made us happy to see it. also it made me think about the art of audio building and the selling of audio and art and why it looks the way it does and all the assumed definitions and chosen limits. not to mention the hype and hyperbole.

now, my friend rich is a slob. his paintings are often done on crumpled grocery bags or paper he finds laying around in the trash can or on gallery walls. he's a rising art star. those paintings are valuable. they are full of dirty, animal content, and they are honest, and they are well worth the dough.

and i knew rich would put his drink and his cigarettes on these. probably splash paint on 'em too.

but of course i don't care because i've seen tons and tons of expensive gear with thin gold plating and veneers pretending that it isn't disposable and fashion driven.

and i KNEW he'd get it.

Blackie,
Can you tell us about the bracing?
Are the drivers connected directly to the skins or do the mount to the braces?

Dave:
Did you adopt all the cats or did some come and get you?
Mine are restricted to the indoors. There are too many self involved and reckless drivers in our area.

A good friend just adapted these littermates from LA animal rescue. They were found lost or abandoned when less than 24 hours old. At 12 weeks, they are doing great:

Kandi (the chocolate rocket -- a tiny little burmese) adopted us... someone must have just tossed her out the car. She will only go near my wife -- she'll actually cling to her and help her "type" on the computer.

Patricia, Lolitta, Beetle Bailey are all cats we got. Hannibal, Uly are offspring we decided to keep on our own. The rest, Finneous, Penelope, Fiona are cats we ended up with during the process of getting Cloe fixed (Lolita didn't like that we gave her 1st batch of kittens away so we never saw her 2nd batch (Cleo & Chloe -- Cleo died in childbirth). (makes the count now at 12 actually). Max, Ariel, Lily all left or met untimely ends (like Eagle Cougar or Racoon). Ezelkial Spynoch (2nd Pope of the Left-Hand Orthodox Church) was with us 2 years, went away for 3 years and came back on Thankgiving nite to spend his last year with us before dying of old age.

braces are made of some alder lath i had lying around, 1.5" x .5", i glued 2 pieces to each inside face with silicone II adhesive/sealer.

drivers are bolted directly to the cardboard, which is super-thick 600lb/sq inch 2 ply corrugated.

boxes were selaed all over the place with silicone II, and the black goop is some spray-on autosound panel deadener which i had leftover from putting a system in my car. whew that's another story!

here's a coupla more revealing pics:
