I cannot imagine a floorstander for the A6.2m unless it was mostly sand-filled void.

I have a 3.6 litre, 2.5 litre and the 1.5 litre for the A6.2m, most of them, including a slot vent version of below, are in the paid planset... this one been released for free.

That would be one way to avoid building stands.

The milli size box for the A6 is not to be sneezed at.

I haven't heard a thing. Was I supposed to contact him, or was it the other way around?

Dave do you have any photos of the ones you mention above? I want to have a feel of the workmanship required. I love your trapezoid designs but they would require way too much time and skill.
Do you require an email for a quote for the plans?

Ignoring the Fonkens at the ends, the 3.6L for 6M, 4.7L (milliSize) for 6P and the 2.5L that works with both 6P & 6M (perspective makes it hard to see tat it is about half as deep as the milli). All are in the same vent style as the CGRs, the trapezoid for 6P is still in my head, and if there is a trapezoid for the 6M it will be kinda swat.

As the builder of the enclosures in above family picnic photo, I can tell you the "milli" format was designed to be a simple build (there are kits for same) - and can accommodate a range of driver models by adjusting the length of internal slot shelf or including vent spacer/filler blocks (as can be seen on the 6M vs 6P)

As much as I like the aesthetics of the trapezoid shape, it does offer some challenges with small / shallow drivers having mounting flanges as wide as the Mark Audios.

I ll go for the 3,7L after all. Seems easy and straight forward, except from the brace part...
Already talked with Dave
