Default Free speaker enclosure (Newcastle Australia)

I have a pair of floorstanding enclosures that are no longer required. These are quite large at 480 wide x 1050 high x 256 deep and are OB for the mid. The shape is based on the Infinity RSII series of the early 80's. The bass enclosure is 48 litres effective (Vb).

These were an attempt to beat my current mains and have had several major changes but never did beat them so the project has been aborted.

They are made from Tassie Oak veneered MDF and in the current form were using:
27TDFC
XG18WH00-08
P21WO-39-08
SP21R or vented using the passive radiator hole.

They are available for pickup only at Newcastle NSW Australia and will hang onto them until the next bulk waste collection. No drivers or crossovers.... enclosure only with attached damping.

In an attempt to reduce the backwave from the mid from the bass woofer so it didn't interfere with the OB mids, acoustic treatment has been carried out on the back panel as well as acoustic tiles on the sides.

By the look of it, there is no reason that it sounds bad. Unless your main speakers sound at reference level.

Good luck finding a home for them. I have already got my cabinets built or I would take them.

I would pad more stuff at the back than what is shown in the picture.

That'd be a shame to throw them away!

How was their sound deficient, and do you have a thread for your current "mains"? (how do these compare?)

Yeah, his mains ain't too shabby

Assuming he is still using those Scan OB things with the Vifa bass

They sounded extemely good but never reached the heights I was after to out do the mains. Maybe a bit too smooth and polite for my tastes. The XG18WH is a great driver and is going into duty in a stand mounter box I have here. The 27TDFC will be used in that as well and a great tweeter.

The back of the mid does have a layer of damping material but was removed for the picture.
