Hi Mal, Great to see your project is still alive. Will be interested in what you settle on in the way of a crossover. Joz isnt the only one who will be looking for an invite to hear the completed speaker. Even if I'm too old and deaf to appreciate them by that time I'll still be able to admire your excellent workmanship.
Cheers Mike

The lengths you go to for a perfect finish are amazing mate. Can't wait to see the finished product. It really is brilliant work mate.

You are one crazy gringo! If anyone ever calls me extreme again, I will direct them to this thread. BTW, why did you not go for the complete aluminium build ala Magico Q3, Q5, Q7 ? You certainly seem to have the metalworking skills.

I did draw something up ,but it would have blown the budget .

I would of prefered to make the cab's out of steel plate something I'm more geared up to work with .But talking to a couple people that make speakers were worried it would ring even with dampening inside the cab walls .
Alloy could of been another option but the cost and the shape I won'ted just added to the cost .

The ply is just for form and fill .I'm going to 2pac finish the cab's and amp case's .

Yes it does . I was going to have the R1 sitting ontop but in the drawings the speaker looked unfinished .And I thought if I'm going to have somwthing like a wave guide to help blend it in I might as well build it into the cab .

Cheers

Heres that bendy ply .
