Interesting subject...

I've bookmarked the page and intend to drop by later. It'll be as a viewer for now, as I don't have any speaker projects planned at the moment.
Nice indpiration, though.

Good work Navin, how do you keep the layers in shape after gluing, do you nail them in.

An excellent resource, Andy.

Did you coin the expression "Translam". I never realised before that I'm a Translamer but I'm not surprised.

What a fantastic collection of interesting looking speakers. I'd love to listen to them. Maybe we should we hold a show for all the curvers out there?

Also, I believe that there are some interesting speakers with a moulded construction. Do you have any plans to feature any?

All in all, it's wonderful that so many builders and manufacturers are starting to get away from the straight sided cabinets of old. Curves can solve a number of design problems and look better too.

Keep up the good work. Thanks.
Steve
