Default I think I've made my choice...But have a question

Ok after looking at most of the more common designs and weighing the advice received I think i'm going to go with the sigma208 enclosure with the 206 drivers.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place to view some pics of the building process. Some of the drawing's details are a bit puzzling to me at this point.

Also if anyone can recommend any driver mods i should be doing that would also be a great help

Thanks

Here the site of Simon, a friend of mine, who build the 208ESigma cabinet. Not the same cabinet, but his most excellent photographs should give you a good idea of how to proceed / what the process will resemble. http://www.atrj13.dsl.pipex.com/na-f..._rear_horn.htm

Re driver modifications, point your mouse toward www.planet10-hifi.com, and order a set of Dave's phase plugs for them. The difference is not subtle (& is measurable I hasten to add -no voodoo here!)

Another mod is to damp the basket and magnet with ductseal or similar, and / or glue a large piece of felt or similar to the rear of the magnet. There are other modifications you can do too, but those should do to be going on with...

Do yourself a pleasure and find a good wood shop (worth searching for) that can precisely cut the wood or mdf for you. Then all panels will certainly fit perfectly and you gain a lot of time.
