Dave,

Are the plans for those Woden Victors available anywhere?

I've been a fan of full range/wideband speakers for a relatively short period of time; probably less then 2 years at this point. While exploring what's available I've been silently reading a number of forums, including those dedicated to the DIY individual, trying to enhance my knowledge. Not that I'm capable of building anything mind you, but more for my own curiosity (I find this stuff fascinating, to be completely honest).

Over the course of the past week I've gone through this entire thread, and I have to say that I am completely amazed by what you folks are capable of. The designs, craftsmanship and ingenuity I've encountered in these 160 pages is absolutely stunning. I envy your skill and abilities. Some of you are truly gifted in that regard. IMHO, there are a couple of people here who should consider building speakers for a living (assuming you aren't already, of course).

I really have nothing of value to contribute -- just my 2 cents, which is not terribly significant or germane -- so I'll refrain from saying anything else. But I did want you to know that there are reticent neophytes lurking about, some of which are in awe of what you've been able to conceive and produce.

It's presumptuous to speak for the group, but may I say that a little opening flattery will go a long way - but as anyone who's actually tried it can attest, turning a hobby like this into a viable commercial enterprise is much harder than it looks.

Rest assured that I wasn't kissing tushie with that post - no brownie points for me! Seriously... I really am impressed by the expertise I see here. There are some skilled individuals, for sure.

I'm not dismissing the complexity or effort associated to opening your own business; I know, I tried it myself. What I see though are a few people who have unique designs and ideas, ones that no one else does. Often that results in success, but a startup is certainly a tremendous undertaking.

Now see, this is exactly what I was talking about. Just look at those pic's, I mean really look at them. Study the details and craftsmanship. Incredible.

I agree with you 100% Jman. Malibujeff's Martellos are indeed an incredible work of art, making then visually as wonderful to look at as I suspect they are aurally to listen to!
