It's my latest incarnation of an all in one.

The smaller drivers are in the front triangle and the woofer and amps are in the back part.

Now I'm going through the painful waiting stage. The textured paint doesn't seem to dry at the same rate as the spray-on base coat.

Oh well, I guess I'll pop a cold one and watch a hockey game in the meantime.

I've been thinking about doing something very similar for some time now...

I was thinking cylindrical enclosure but that introduces as many problems as it solves, at least as far as construction.

I'm curious to see where this goes!

Sometimes you have to throw the tweaking, the religion and the foo-foo aside and just throw a sledgehammer it at!

Bunch of speakers, ton of power and a box--drink until it sounds good!

Yes, plate amp for the woofer and a T-amp for the mid/high.

Nope, but when I have time...

This is just a portable system, it will be fed by an iPod. (don't shoot!)

The box is made but the textured paint is really slow to dry so I may or may not get to this tomorrow but when I do you guys will be the first to know.
