PS maybe You and $$$man should concider starting a new thread, as we seem to have hijacked bko69's build thread.
Regards Xoc1
Xoc1, thanks for that. Yes, I think a new thread is in order. Sorry, bko69 didn't mean to hijack your thread, BTW nice build!

Parts Express have got metal grills on special at the moment. You can cut to size using a angle grinder with a cutting disc.

Hi bko69 - Looking Good!
Grilles were discussed quite extensively in the TH18 Thread
JBell posted am example of a basic grille here....
TH-18 Flat to 35hz! (Xoc1's design)
A grille will make a significant difference to the strength of the cabinet as it reinforces the weakest part of the speaker enclosure.
TundraLTD did some interesting sims in akabak using a 50% open ares grille that showed minimal differences to the response of the speaker
TH-18 Flat to 35hz! (Xoc1's design)
Regards Xoc1

fhperez: nice photos. everything is so nice and clean. are those qspot 260s i see?

sorry did not answer your question about how i will stack them. i think i'm going to do 2 clusters of 4, sideways with mouths touching in the center. i'll post a photo later when they are done. not sure if i will center stack them (like i should) or split them up 4 on each side. guess i can try it both ways.

Bob,

Depending on the venue layout, and coverage desired, center, side or spaced arrays are all what "should " be done.

Thanks for your pics... I know sometimes I get caught up in, "can I get a db more if I do..." kind of thing.... I love seeing pics showing folks having fun.

After all... if it's not fun, you're not doing it right....

thanks
