Looks like one to me. I like. Oh yes, I like.

Take care when putting the 1812 Ovature on that the cat isn't in residence or it might go flying...

Any comments about MDF vs Ply?

In normal listening, I can't seem to notice a difference. But if I listen more critically, I think I can detect a difference sometimes, but the difference would only be small.

No other mods, just break in and changing the position. Although to be honest, the bass is still not fantastic. In familiar music some of the low notes just don't seem to hit where they are supposed to. I think I am probably just expecting too much though.

Chris & i were discussing this last night... some of the major differences will be in stereo imaging, where the very subtle clues fill things out.

With 1 of each anything related to this will be out the window,

dave

PS: how is the bass coming along?

or at the very least you'll be cleaning up residue from a brown note

Just my funny project using the TB W3-871S. This is a ceramic enclosure, painted with the same color of the TB cone. The feet still need to be done. The enclosure tuned like an ML-TL.

Default ah...

But how do they sound?

You still have your page up (the clone stuff?). Just curious.

too early, still breaking in the speaker. I had them since two years but never used them Up to know, this is pretty good but I won't say this is the best sound, it is just for fun. My web page is still up with the clones (sorry there was a typo in my signature URL) but I moved it.

Default Update at 8 ball audio

This is the latest addition to the family.

It's based on Sheldon's Tidy TL design and is a direct result of gaining a daughter who likes to shake things a lot.

My Highball designs had to be temporarily retired as there was too much risk of my daughter doing an Indiana Jones and shaking the stand so the speaker rolled off onto her !

I'd be interested to hear anyone else's experiences if they've used this design. Currently it has no BSC implemented or stuffing which i hope to add later.
