Thanks!

Well... they are not done yet , but right now they have been sanded with P240. I have used a two-component filler ( Biltema Norge ) and then a normal wood primer ( Biltema Norge ).

And since this is a picture thread...

Sorry for the lack of information.

The throat L=140 mm

The speaker used is a Fostex 206E.
Calculations were done with AJHORN

The amplifier is build in. And a measuring was done with DEQX
Damping was done with wool. It had a lot off effect changing and adding this. until I got the best result.

I've had a lot off fun listening to them.

They are stil not painted because the owner doesn't want to stop listening.

Default Itty bitty FR's for the PC - retro style

Apex Jr dual cone FR drivers.
Routed maple baffle. Feast Watson oil finish.
Hammer-finish spray painted PVC plumbing elbow.
Au-plated binding posts.

I managed retro, I think.
But next time I'm going full-on steam-punk! :-)

cheers

Doug

Don,

The "chassis" is perfect, but the 9-pin tubes are out of place.
