Excellent job. Tough routering those holes so close, eh? Time for some Crown Royal rare edition and a good 2 track recording
Feels good don't it?

Jason
The two weakest links in the playback chain are the loudspeaker and the recording.

Your speaker look great and will respect any WAF ;-)

I hope that one day I'll have the opportunity to visit you and listen to your "Babies" !

All the characteristic are close to the real Arro:
2 order linkwitz riley crossover with impedance compensation
Peerless drivers
oxygen-free 8ga copper wire
maple veneer
I did not use borosilicate since it was too much expensive
biamp capability
...

It was not so hard, I did some testing on scrap MDF.
I prefer Remy Martin VSOP

The WAF at home is very good; she didn't complaint when I told her that I will probably build a 9 feet el-pipo She find these Arro very cute (probably because they are small).

My familly live in Quebec city and I drive there almost once a month so that's not a problem to organize something.

Excellent, well done, and a fine job of veneering to boot!

Can't wait to see the photos of the El-Pipo

Nope, the two weakest links are me and my soldering iron!

The hardest part was...the black base. High-gloss black is a pain, there is probably 20 coats of paint (sanded with No. 600 sandpaper) and I still see small dirt.

For the el-pipo, man, this thing is huge to bring back from the Home-Depot... People at the home-depot will think that I am crasy to make cement in the middle of winter...

For my Fredon, I was planning to paint the base and the top using High-gloss black. I decided to try on one base and soon realised that it would be a pain in the a.... So, I decided to use black melamine paint. Using the appropriate foam roller, I had very good result. Not as beautifull as High-gloss black but still the base and top look very nice.

Don't worry, they are use to see peoples buy these tube during winter. The construction guy don't have the choice, they can't wait until the summer to build what they have to buil


Next time you come to Quebec, just e-mail me a few days before your trip and I'll try to get a free night & invite you to listen to the Fredon. Your comment would be more then welcome. Maybe I could spin one of those black plate we love so much
