Variac, now you need to build a couple of BIB speakers, something tells me that they will aesthetically pair well with your amps!

Thanks guys! I will post a couple more photos taken outside so there is more light, and some close-ups, when they are finished.

Vix, I am a big fan of BIB's and have built a couple. In a month I am having a Speaker Day where I have convinced some friends and family to show up and we will all work to make them each a pair of BIB's based on the Pioneer BOFU, BUFU, B20 whatever- you know the 8" with the whizzer cone.. I think that we will build about 8 pairs. They sound so good for so little money that I am kinda forcing these people to get some!!

But your point has occured to me.... I could make a pair of BIB's that match the amps in a lot of ways and they would look mighty cute together.(if "cute" and "big" can be the same) In fact it occured to me that a somewhat bigger aluminum tower could be a bib speaker AND a heatsink!! It wouldn't have flow through ventilation , but if it is big enough that wouldn't matter. The only problem is that I have been somewhat convinced vibrations affect the sound..

Variac,
Very,very Nice!
I am a little upset however... You beat me to it and I'll have to enjoy copy-cat status. Copy cat with a cool amp that is...

I've been sitting on some 4.5"aluminum sq. for some time.

The tube idea works well. With the 4.5" tube maybe you could have two towers, side by side for a stereo amp and spaced apart a bit - one for each channel...

Would actually have more surface area than mine for the height..

Nelson, do you have any additional advice on which impedance someone should calcluate a passive active.cross-oer which works well with the F4 ?

From the manual:
"You can take advantage of the same arrangement if you have drivers and you
want to make your own custom passive crossovers:
An alternative arrangement results when you create your own passive crossover
networks using resistors as loads and feeding the results to F4 channels. The
networks behave more ideally driving resistors than the complex impedance of
loudspeakers, and the resistor values can be set over a wide range of
impedances.. The loudspeaker drivers themselves benefit from the direct
connection to the low output impedance of the amplifiers."

?

Yeah, they would be tall, but the footprint would be WAF tolerable.
Two BIBs in corners, and two monoblock amps next to them. Like four big chimneys, giving it an unconventional, "industrial" look. It would surely look interesting, and no one would object.
