Further on the Curvi -- that there is no driver offset is a pointer towards a non-optimum TL.

Is the tool he uses a Polissoir?

A non-varnish finish fascinates me. I'd love to know more.

Thank you, Mack

Default Greg's Alpair 10.3 boxes

Here are some new speakers, first build for a while. The new Alpair 10.3 in the official 16l reflex box. That's sapele veneered plywood and cork sheet fronts. I realize I'm more of a hard modernist than most folks, but I like them, and that's what counts.

This is sort of a partial cross post from the MA forum, but these are different pictures of the speakers in their intended location. World's finest bookshelf speakers!

Those cones are a real nice colour. Cork? I have thought about leather.

Hi Greg B
The tube amps look so nice and they also look beautiful with the speakers.

Though the driver (SB12MNRX25-4) is not really designed for running fullrange I decided to implement it as such. Paint job is by my 5 1/2 YO so not your average finish

Still have to build the second one for a stereo pair. I think once I have that they will image very well. This one doesn't sound at all like a small speaker. It really throws a full sound into the room, I was quite surprised. F/R does need some work but is not too bad as is.

Tony.
