Smile Latest project, 3 way with 10" sealed woof

Here's a pic of the project I recently finished. It's a 3 way using peerless drivers with the woofer in a 2 ft3 sealed alignment. I used lamination construction for the cabinets and the finish is natural cherry veneer, boiled linseed oil, followed with poly. Crossover designed by Rick Craig. They sounds very nice.

NICE!
That finish is awesome.
And I love the cabinet design.
Good choice on the sealed 10" 3-way, too.
..I've been interested in trying a similar design lately.

They also look fantastic! I love the elegant shape and I'm also a big fan of sealed enclosures.

Very nice work,

Fantastic looking speaker. you should be proud.

Looks like a peerless mid - what are the other 2 drivers?

Thanks,
David.

Hi Nortp,

Appears to be previous Peerless drivers as well.

And since I honestly have no experience with woodworking whatsoever, add me to the list of those who'd like to see how you constructed these cabinets too. I've always liked those rounded enclosures.

Default Some build pics

Go to

http://mysite.verizon.net/pjncan/

To see some build picks.

the drivers are :

850146 10" CSX woof had it from a previous project.

HDS 850488 5" mid had it from a previous project.

HDS 810921 twt got it new for this project

Baffle tilted 8 1/2 degrees for time alignment. Felt mask to help with diffraction. They are really heavy and dead cabinets ~ 100 lbs each. Rick did a great job on the crossovers, the imaging is awesome, sound is single driver coherent.

Default Yes there are inwall speaker outlets

To keep my wife happy I have the electronics in another room so I ran 10 gauge speaker wire in wall to supply the speakers. It was my nod to WAF.
