The lighting was quite low and there is even a plastic bag next to one speaker. I will take tripod shots tomorrow with decent lighting.

Looks great. Wonderful grain selection. Worked out nicely. A7'S do resolve more, but the 10's are bbetter for everyday listening, IMO.

Ryan,

Congrats! Very nice build. Make sure you break in the drivers before cranking up loud, and have fun listening.

This cabinet features the offset holey brace as well as bracing that goes side to side.

Very pretty boxes. I like the grey driver with the reddish Mahogany veneer.
Congrats.

Thank you I guess 8 years of cabinet making was worth it.

At our shop we have a lot of smaller pieces of meterial that go to waste. I will need to investigate the smaller cabinets for these MA Drivers.

Still listening a low volumes but it's just amazing how much bass these produce with very little cone movement. Even with the high pass set at 40hz. Perhaps most of the excursion in this design happens outside of the speakers operational range.

Default The Setup

Click the image to open in full size.

Apparently the WAF of the subwoofer has suddenly dropped. Center channel will be replaced, it will stay with the magnepans in another setup.

I'm thinking a MarKen 7.3 or 10.2 primesize. Calibration is being used so frequency response with the exception of low end extension is a non issue for now.


Current Specs:
Reciever
Denon AVR-591
1200rpm(slow and quiet) 120mm 12v fan cooling modification

Mains
Pensil 10.2 40hz high pass

Center
4x TB 315E Dipole 8 ohm 200hz high pass

Rears
2x TB 871S 4 ohm 120hz high pass

Subwoofer
Peerless 12" XLS with matching passive radiator 20hz high pass
500W Bash plate amp from Parts Express
1200rpm(slow and quiet) 120mm 12v fan cooling modification
-this is the source of the blue light, here comes the e-tape

Source
Nvidea GTX460 HDMI straight to the receiver. Streaming of the DTS and DD works.

Display
47" Philips LCD running 1080p HDMI from the computer. This is the source 99% of the time.

I am impressed with the inexpensive AVR-591. The cooling is inadequate with this unit, fan cooling keeps it cool with very low distortion. It's preamp functions are unbelievable.

Great job.

One little picky bit, with your building experience you should be easily be able to build a much nicer table to put all of your gear together! That should put the WAF rating at 11...maybe even 12.
