Chris,

Could you post your replies using a larger font size, I'm afraid I can't read it through all the smoke.


Best Regards,
Terry

Just stunning, Dave (Chris!!) love the veneer matching/colour.
soundwise??- oh, Chris did you add a piece of material behind the front baffle cut-out to flush mount the driver, or use a thicker front baffle?
best,
don

The Mar-Ken12Ts are lovely... yes, and like Doorman, I'd like to know how they are soundwise.

Here's the Mar-Ken 7.3 I finished recently.

Very impressed with the sound. These are for a friend - I'm gonna miss these when he eventually takes them home.

Thanks Don, sometimes the color and grain figuring just works with you, other times it's a struggle to finish the pattern for even a smaller enclosure than these with a single sheet.

Yes, an additional 9mm BB plate (for total of 27mm) on the rear side of front baffle to allow sufficient core for fasteners.

Chrisb,

Thank you for the kind words and specially for all the advice on building and finishing - it's helped me achieve "zero to hero" over the past few months.

The boilerplate is here: planet10-hifi miniOnken Plan-Set Subscriptions

I am working thru the entire planset to do trapezoids for all (including the new FFxx5wk) -- there will be multiple variations for some of the smaller drivers. There will also be a family of WoofTs to go alomg with them all. This to emphasis our feeling that to get the best out of a FR, and to make it truly full-range, adding helper woofers makes the most sense.
