What is the angled board in the throat? Just a brace? Or serves another purpose?

That came from trying to figure out how/where to put the driver. centering it in the throat just seemed to be sloppy, not directing the sound energy/air very well. The driver is to one side and that board tapers the throat from S1 to the first bend. Wont know until I get it together how well it will sound in the real world but it should be awesome.

Subscribed; been looking for used TH50's and this looks like a great alternative.

I hope she meets your expectations!!!

I've never attempted anything on this scale before and let me say its a HUGE challenge (a p.i.t.a.) I'm hoping to have it ready to play on Sunday afternoon. Moving this thing around by myself is a task. The other project I'd planned (Dual 18 TH) is definitely being put on hold until I get a nice enclosed double axle drop gate trailer to store everything in!

Made a little progress today. Along with a HUGE MESS! I used six 5 gallon paint buckets to weight the side I glued on today and one fell off somehow It just happened to be Smurf blue Click the image to open in full size. and is all over the patio, luckily a neighbor heard me swearing and had the idea to throw some quick-set cement on it to soak it up

Getting closer, I'm going to put the last side on tomorrow! I wish I had more then one day off a week, this project has taken almost 2 months (7 days) so far.
