Smart looking "box"

I'll be very interested in how the sound changes (i'd expect better, maybe way better) as you move to these materials.

Andrew and others, thanx for your replies.

Andrew, as I am in Brisbane, if I were going to get a speaker (or other - amp chasis?) CNCed, you would be my first point of call.

Thanx for the responses regarding materials as well; all very helpful.

All the best
Raymond

Thanks.

I'm thinking of tryin panzerholhz to computer cut and glue up. Can machine up to 60mm thick.

This is the excellent (and costly) product used by Clearaudio for their top-spec turn-table bases.

Scroll down the page to see the close-up pic of the turntable feet.

I'd like a C-Horn built like that....

Default DIY Licensing

Do you think you might be able to sell plans with a license to
build, say, four cabs for an appropirate fee? I suspect that
they may be buildable with the router working against an appropriate
template to control the profile. Crazy for production but OK
for a DIYer.

Thanks,

Default Pics of Visaton 200B in new C-Horn!!!

I'm blown away by this driver used in my C-Horns and the Big Funs.

http://www.creationaudio.com.au/library/chorn/pic4.jpg

Compared with the Lowther DX3's, the bass response of the Visaton is amazing....and for 1/5 the cost!!

What has been other people's experience with this driver?

Also - has any one tried the Visaton Quadro (using 4 of the 200B drivers per sealed cabinet)?

Hi
This does not look like a Visaton B200 to me.
Beautiful cabs though.
Congratulations.

Andrew,

Send me the link to the right picture and i'll fix it.

I also fixed the thread title where you mucked up the name of the driver.
