I ping the URL www.dougsmith.lisalandy.com and received no reply. The IP address showing is 209.200.238.20. It is likely the DNS here has the old/wrong address. Can someone do a ping and tell me the correct IP address for www.dougsmith.lisalandy.com
Thanks

Thanks, Pallas. I just made two. I might have done 3 if I was planning on using a projector and AT screen, but just two with a phantom center is working fine for me right now for music and movies on my LCD TV.

I did check with Earl before trimming the foam, he said he never made any measurements with flat vs rounded foam. The trimmed foam probably accentuates the high frequency response a bit, which is probably not a bad thing. Mine actually measure fairly flat (in the room with my uncalibrated mic) out to 15k Hz or so.

SamL, that IP address is correct.

Nice web site Doug.

For me I like to see the foam and the waveguide exit. I've come to dislike seeing the screws on the woofer and thats why the assembling is going to change to hide them. I think that this will improve the looks a great deal. Then I wouldn't even consider a total grill cloth and no foam cutting would be necessary. This is the better approach IMO.

Thanks, I haven't updated it for quite a while. As you may recall, I seriously considered leaving off the grill cloth and just making a clean transition between the veneered sides and the baffle - it would have made the construction process a lot simpler (and I do like the look of the rounded foam as well). I'd be interested in seeing an example of the new look.

Something is stopping the traffic from NZ. Same no response from office and home. Working for a US own computer company and connection unlikely to be bad.

It's all that porn content on his site. Nice wife Doug - "nudge, nudge, ya know what I mean?" (From Monty Python in case you think thats my phase.)

My site gets blocked from time to time and my E-mail from that site is definately a target.

Hi Doug,

Got your email. Can see everything clearly now. It is a beauty you got there. Think if I am getting the Abbey (working hard on it, cooking nice dinner, take rubbish out etc), I'll veneer it like you. Not sure if I'll be able to get the veneer and baffle join look as nicely as yours. It look tricky to me.
As for the foam plug, I actually prefer the bulge look. I am sure the 3D look do add to the 3D sound.
You mention that you would avoid using shellac based sealer the next time. Will oil base prime be a good alternative if brush priming it?

Thanks for sharing.
Sam
