Is that safe? That glue isn't so good to burn.

I've had a little too much of burning lately forgive me if I twitch!

They probbbbbably have a burn ban in effect in California right now...

Not to make fun or light of the situation.

You have to get the fire really hot.

I keep telling people... with global warming Victoria will end up with a climate like San Diego... with these current events, i'm thinking that may not be a very good thing -- we already sweat the summers as far as forest fires go.

I love 'em.
I Thank Scott Moose and Planet 10 for the design, and credit was given to them both as the designer of the speakers.

Not terribly efficient speakers but the quality makes up for volume.

I thought your speakers provided some of the best balanced sound and imaging on Sunday. The only scary moment was when the right channel tweeter started to break up at extremely high volume. I wasn't sure if it was the amp clipping or the tweet. But all was well when they lowered the volume a hair. Once again, great job!

Thanks for the kind words WBS. I'm sorry I don't remember what you brought. Everything was new to me, and I was quite overwhelmed (Not hijacking thread)
My thought was the amp that was clipping, I have played them much louder than they were at the time. I realize the size of the hall makes a difference, and it is always better to play it safe. At ~$160 + shipping per tweet I'm glad he turned down the volume.
It was a lot of fun to hear all the different speakers / electronics that everyone brought and worked so hard to build. Everyone was a truly part of the DIY family. Nice people... I only wish I could have stayed another 10 minuites to hear the F4s....Got home after 10:30 as it was.

That is a great price on those speakers. I paid that much for the drivers alone.
Hint: Upgrade the Xover components after you listen to them awhile. Then rebuild the boxes if you like. (You'll be glad you did)

I brought my camera and left with the Moth drivers and other assorted drivers! Hopefully next year I'll have a Moth based pair to bring!

I don't think you'll find 25mm locally. I've just finished a set of Thor boxes for a friend, and I had to resort to 22mm. Just keep the internal dimensions the same. Thicker walls will result in more rigid sides. However, I don't think it is practical to increase the wall thickness, as it is already of a respectable thickness, yielding a fairly "dead" enclosure.

The boxes without drivers are already quite wieldy, so you may regret adding more mass...

here in quebec we have 2" mdf very practical for enormous boxes butnot for little ones
