166ES-R BIB is about as good as it gets. Too bad there are not more of those drivers. I built the Fostex Rx backhorn for mine and what a machine!! I almost wish I hadn't sold them, to have those drivers for a BIB.

Tachyon,

Looks like you used Gorilla Glue. Right?
If so Gorilla glue expands and tends to look rather ugly when trying to put a finish on it. TiteBond or other similar wood glues will not expand and can give a better finish. Also once the Gorilla glue is sanded it is very porous.

Yes....but polyurethane (gorilla) glue does a very good job of filling voids!

Made from genuine gorillas you know.

I tend to use PVA for my projects. Though my finishing technique leaves a lot to be desired. Bomb-proof yes. Attractive? No.

Internal dims 19 X 30 X 172.5 cm.

Magnet clear 0.5 - 1 cm from internal baffle

Sm 88.33 in/2, a tad more than the recomended 87.75

I used 18mm birch ply.

Poly-glue was only used in the bottom that I had removed, the new piece fitted snugly and the poly-glue filled the minimal gaps.



Now I'm just gonna decide what tint I'll use in the oil.. Stone foundation will be slabs of black diabas so maybe a dark red would be nice? Anyone not coulorblind out there with some recomendations?

I can't find any sims for FE164 on Zillas page...
maybe GM or Scott can do them if you ask nicely ;-)

http://www.zillaspeak.com/bib-fostex.asp

They are ready but not listened to yet, deciding what finish to use. My friend got this new power sander machine and we "uhm" grinded away to much of the outer veneer layer so one speaker got a big dark blotch that didn't really show until I put the first layer of oil on them. I will now tint them a bit, or a lot, darker. Live and learn as usual.
