Just breaking them in. Exeptional bass from 7" Seas H1215. Cabinet very heavy at 125lbs.

I wasn't sure about going the 2-way route on this one so I have both tweeter and mid wires routed through seperate upper chamber for easy changeover. Space above tweeter will fit a Morel small face or the Vifa D26NC55. Current tweeter cutout is exact fit for any of the Vifa 4" mids.

X-over is velcro-mounted on a slanted board below woofer. Removable turnbuckle side brace facilitates easy removal of x-over.

What a beauty!! What is the finish?

The base is similar in concept to what I'm building (but won't be done for a while).

*Very* nice!

I'd personally like to see Troels HESII (Vifa version) done with a cabinet shaped similar to this particular Kharma esthetic..

High Eff., Good Looks, Excellent Sound.. (..just dreaming. )

Appreciate the compliments guys.
First I sealed the mdf then three coats of Rustoleum Sandable Auto Primer.

Finished with 6 coats of Duplicolor Truck/Van Spray paint ( Dark Garnet Red) and 6 coats of Deft Spray Lacquer. Looks lighter in pics but actually quite dark.

I have a few days before I can buff out the finish and top with Minwax furniture wax. I can use the rest as my arms are aching from moving these things around.

Although they sound great already I can't help thinking what they would sound like with a 7" Revelator or C95 T-6 with a 9500 or 9900. Or just adding Vifa 4" mid and D26NC55 to make it a three way.

Any thoughts?

Great work! The baffle edges look like more than a simple roundover...how did you get that look?

Drew a vertical line 3" from front face on sides/top and sculpted by hand. Yes a lot of work! Contour gauge helped.

Sides and top are 1 1/2 " thick.
