Twin Chr-ken70.3 Castle teaser
 
Hey all,

Well, I have just about finished my first full range build.

Twin Chr-ken70 Castle...or is it castle of the twin chr-ken70? If you could straighten me out on the nomeclature, Dave, I would appreciate it.

Here are a few teaser shots until I finish later this week.

When I saw the twin Chr-ken I knew I wanted to build it, but being concerned about lobing I asked dave if I could "castle" it. He directed me to the thread where he had mentioned it as a possibility, so I dove in.
I was close to finishing, but I was not going to be in the shop for a few days so I slapped them together without braces or proper stuffing. Thus, the screws in the tops. I am really enjoying the sound as is though.

I will give a full review and some more pics when they are done.

Thanks everyone here for you inspirational builds and coincidental obsessions! Especially Dave and Chis for all their development and pioneering.

It is great to see the suggestion turned into reality Those look fantastic.

I guess we should call it a Castled Twin CHR-Ken70 or Castle Twin CHR-Ken70 or Castle CHR-Ken70^2

I wanted to this or a Castle Twin Mar-Kel70!

Congrat - looks very nice and let us know how it sounds when you have some more hours on the drivers.

Will do. Although the drivers have been broken in out of the cabinet for over 100 hours using a playlist with 4 hours of music and then an hour rest. Played that for 4-5 days with them on the bench. I need to get the damping and bracing right before I give a real review. First impressions are very good.
