Did you need any internal bracing?

But seriously, any build pics or gut shots?

Looks cool

Hey Guys, thanks for asking. Been having trouble posting pictures. Here are a few details of the build.

The speaker cabinet shells are 3/4 inch thick C.S.A. cement based concrete rated at 9000 P.S.I. The concrete is P.V.A. fiber reinforced, colored to slate gray and diamond polished to 3000 grit. A special reactive sealing system is used to densify the concrete and enhance color.

The front baffle is 3/4 inch solid oak and in the back is a 4" x 18" removable panel for dampening adjustments.

The concrete shell weighs 54 lbs and the finished speaker weighs 63 lbs.Click the image to open in full size.[/IMG]

Ed,

They aren't mine, I just posted the pic. I did post a link to where I got the pic though. They're Mark's personal speakers if I remember right. Maybe Mark will chime in with the wood and the finish

Hi Ed,
The wood is Asian light Oak, reconstituted in moulded or jointed sections. Quality is suitable for descent furniture and cab making. My boxes were had a rose-wood stain applied. Then I buffed-polished then with a wood wax.

Thx
Mark.

Thank you Mark. There will be a pair of rose wood colored speakers on this forum, hopefully soon. I am very excited :-) After a long internal debate as well as some help from you I have decided on the A10 gen 2 drivers, ordering them tomorrow.
