Then I would advise the discovery Scanspeak series very nice drivers, low mechanical losses good linearity great-brand name and very nice price. Cross it low 1.5kHz because of ctc spacing.

Progress has been very slow, too many projects, too many interruptions.

I have cut Tasmanian Blackwood to about 5mm thick & laminated it on the front face. Unfortunately when I route the curve on the edges the grain gets raised in the sections that the router bit is running against the grain. There is no way of avoiding going against the grain. I am using a brand new bit but still the grain gets raised & dug out.

I will try modifying an old bit tomorrow to see if I can improve things. As yet I have not cut the full curve. I was hoping to avoid using too much sandpaper as it will take the crispness off the curve, but I don't think I will have much chose.
The plywood edges will be black at the end of the day.

What I REALLY hate is having my fingers so close to the router bit when I'm curving the head section, scary stuff

Default PAINT SUGGESTIONS

I'm going to paint the woofer box & plywood edges black, charcoal or some similar colour. I would even like a paint that had a bit of a sparkle to it, only a little bit though.

Do any of you aussie's know of such a paint?

How about the charcoal grey hammer tone I used on my amp case's ,looks nice inside .

Or an automotive metalic grey . being inside you mighten need to clear it to protect the metalic .But cleaning it could be a problem .

Click the image to open in full size.

Do you want the cab's to look shiny or a satin or matt finish .

Cheers

Hi 56

I was going for a Satin to almost matt finish, I think the automotive is probably the go, if it can be done in a Satin, I seem to remember you where toying with some pretty outlandish colurs for something at one stage

Any suggestions?

I used the hammer tone one one of my little projects but it's not what I'm looking for for the speakers.

Heres a couple of cabs I painted for a SNA member .He wanted a satin finished that could be cleaned .So i mixed 10% flatten base into the paint & the last couple of coats I thined it down a little bit more .

Don't forget painting satins and matts its very hard getting dust out of the paint without
painting the surface again .

Cheers
