Lets see...

Well I have a busted CNC, a bunch of scruffy looking test boxes, a shed load of CAD models and the merest hint of a website if you can even call it that. Any takers? Haha

When things get a bit more serious ie. I have something to sell. I'll ask the mods to close/move this thread into a more suitable area. For now I'm happy to share the development of loudspeakers using pretty cool tools such as CAD and CNC.

Thanks for the tips on the website. HTML5 it is and I've made a start. I'm going to try and keep the same layout as I had with the flash version but there'll be no flashy animations aside from a basic carousel style picture viewer and drop down menus.

Cur-V: not so hot.

Also, a little proofreading is in order.

Hi Cal, its more placeholder text to flesh out what I'm looking at when working with the site design. I have every intention of going back and playing around with that job once the core layout is functional and I'm happy with that.

Definitely your efforts are a value and inspiration to us all, and I REALLY dig the 70s vibe version.
Hi Badman,

Your absolutely right. Its an awkward line to walk and I do sometimes forget that. You see I've been a member for years and always have and will be a DIY'er at heart. But as you say, even though the target market is virtually nill on here, its a form of advertising especially with the website stuff since that's nothing to do with DIY and has everything to do with product and selling.

I'll stick firmly to the audio side of things and leave the website and marketing style stuff out of the picture and stick to only the development and construction side in much the same way as I've always done in the past.

I'd appreciate if a mod could add a few words on this because this is fast becoming a grey area.

At the moment this is a fascinating and entertaining thread on the perils of setting up your own hi-fi business, so I see no need to chastise Ant.

But I am watching.

Yes. The thread has a nice "flow" to it with good diversity (..though that "sounds" strange). No sense in "dam-ing it".

Sounds good to me, as I say, love your work, the attention to quality and detail is something to behold. Those fuzzy lines are sure difficult and I find open discussion of them is the best way to achieve a quality resolution (as we have). I hope nobody takes this as anything but a polite suggestion from me, I'm not trying to give Shin a hard time here, at all.

Frequency response within +/-1 dB is hard to believe.

How come?

That's native without room and with 12db/oct smoothing on the FR. Its not that hard to achieve with active crossover and decent drivers.

Many studio monitors offer similar performance. Mackie for example supply a bit of paper with each of their HR series showing +/-1dB or better. And those are mass produced in China at that!

The LGT at its most linear had +/-0.5dB using Acourate generated correction filters.
