Here's the current Sketchup model for the bass cabinets. It's missing much of the bracing but gets the idea across. This isn't vaporware btw, just sketchup makes a more understandable look than my current pics. There are "ribs" like shown all the way around. 31" height.

nice looking. It reminds me of a few things...but it's a much more affordable implementation than most of those.

Why not have a brace that goes all the way through the enclosure to connect the top and bottom plates?

There are ribs between each of the shelf braces, but no, there's not a full top-bottom continuous brace. The bottom has many braces distributed over the surface of it, and connected to the first shelf brace, which has more connections to the second.

Construction of my cabinets was completed today. One more weekend of opera performances, then next week I can prep them and apply the DuraTex.

Further work on the speaker project will have to get in line, though. Next Monday I get to pick up my new Kawasaki Versys!

Gary,

You have to be in the minority. You are an employed music educator/performer with money left over for nice audio projects.

Life is good!

Chris

BudP,

What happened to your newly designed speakers? I recalled you posted a schematic somewhere within this relatively short thread.

Boy, does she wish!! But she's only 13 so the most she could hope for would be riding two-up with me. But Solveig had better not hold her breath...Tineke won't even let me get her a helmet.

Not sure what you are referring to. For a short time I was using the Azurahorns AH-425's with the GPA-288's on top of the Klipsch Chorus II's, using their woofer sections only, but the Klipsch woofer wasn't smooth enough through the crossover and it didn't seem worth the effort. A few years ago I bought a set of Von Schweikert VR4's and got them upgraded at the factory. I sold them earlier this year and am now listening to AN-E's. The Ariels are in storage. I don't think the woofer surrounds are very compliant anymore, but I'd like to listen to them again sometime.
