Default Delta3 coming along ...

I guess you could call them my version of a Wilson Sophia, which is a reworking of my original Delta speakers.
This is the first time I've tried an automotive finish and its so much harder than veneering! Thanks to Shinobiwan for his finishing tips which have been very helpful.

Hi David.

Looks great, as usual. Can't wait for your writeup.

How wide is that bass cabinet?

Still using the old Dynaudio driver?

Not tempted to try an Hiquphon?

Had enough pestering questions for one day?

best regards,
Thanh.

G'day Thanh

The bass cabinet is a my Samson subwoofer with some additional bracing and a base to raise things to the right height. Its 300mm wide - any wider wouldnt look right. I've now decided I have no need for a subwoofer since in-room I'm getting good output down to 30Hz. Also, nowadays I'm really trying to follow the less-is-more philosophy and reduce the visual impact on my living room (which I admit looks like a real bachelor pad).

Yep, still using the old Dynaudio d21/2. How many dome tweeters these days get to 40 kHz? The OW1 would be a very nice alternative for sure though and I'd probably use it if it had the same flange diameter of 110mm (the OW1 is 94mm I think).

Exhausted after about 6 hours of sanding, cutting and polishing today.
The next few days (after work) I'll build the crosssovers - aiming for completion by this weekend , and I'm gradually putting together a write-up so I dont forget what I did in years to come
Cheers
David

nice work, mate!

can't believe you weren't using a spray gun, that paint comes out really good.
What do you use as a midrange?
