Figures. Actually, I think that's a brilliant idea. Bet the local council, or whatever equivalent would witter about 'health & safety' as a way of wriggling out of it unfortunately.

Up side -those cabinets look like they're coming on very nicely indeed.

Second up-side: Derek, who's black Sachiko's are shown on the Frugal-horn site, has just sent me some images of the 126 cabinet based on this layout / design. Here's one of the shots he sent -you can see his black, full-size cabinets with FE206ES-R's lurking in the background. I think they look sensational.

You are right Scott, they look great in Black, and I have considered this myself, but I am a little unsure I would be able to pull it off, though it would look cool and hide the odd imperfection in the grain of the wood. I will look into it further, I may be able to hire some spray kit to do the job. Steve.

Default Modeling these beasties

Hi Scott/Dave/all:

With the BVRs, could an existing tuned cabinet be converted to BVR operation by adding a flare? Does the flared section simply 'take' the vent output and waveguide it/convert to low pressure high volume? Or does it have significant effect on the tuning?

I got asked this elsewhere -the updated text I wrote for the Spawn pages should hopefully clarify things a bit once it's up.

Like most things in this life, it's a yes & no situation. Yes, you can convert an existing box, assuming it's suitable for conversion (you need to account for vent location & internal standing waves which affect the response). Also yes, that's what the flare does. As such, it does have an effect on the response, so you do need to size it right. Ideally, you want it to have the minimum apparant effect on the modelled FR.

The front is mahogany veneer. The finish is seedlac and wax. I love shellac!

Greets!

Well, to put this in an easy way to visualize this, if you can design a horn extension for your mouth that doesn't change your voice's timber and tonal balance, then yes, but getting it right is no trivial pursuit, so the short answer is no for most folks.

Default Sachiko 126

Not sure if this is the first Sachiko 126 build? They sound wonderful! Thanks Scottmoose for the plans!
