Default Who is the person with round speakers/enclosures on avatar?

I'm thinking of trying out that sonic impact amp everyone have been talking about and mate that with a pair of small, efficient 3" -4" for my small 10'x11' room.
The idea of the rounded enclosure looks really interesting and I want to mount them near the walls. (I'll figure out my mounting options, but suggestions are welcome)

So, if you're that person, would you please tell me how you did the round enclosures? What was the final volume for ur enclosure?

TIA

Yes, something like that. But of course, I'm not looking to make the enclosure out of marble.

Would something from the gardening department have anything rounded like that? I do work with fiberglass. Therefore, reinforcing the rounded enclosure won't be a problem.

well, the first few layers would be hard if i work on soft materials, something with stronger backing would be better.

I hope i dont have to go and steal those round street lights or something.

If you wanna stay with wood for the enclosure here´s one nice way to do it : http://users.tpg.com.au/users/gradds...udspeakers.htm
Shouldn´t be too much work for a small enclosure.

You could fiberglass a polystyrene ball (with baffle pre-attached) and then just use solvent (or a mechanical device) to remove the foam.

I've been planning on some round speakers for a while, haven't gotten around to it yet though.

I'm going to use stainless steel gazing globes. You can buy these in a pretty wide range of sizes. You'd need to backfill inside the sphere through your speaker cutout with something, maybe fiberglass or some kind of wood composite.
