Cabs are sanded and ready for finish. I like the bare wood pattern. I'd like to clear them like they are. WAF says black to match the rest of furniture. So black it is.

I'm really tempted to put the drivers in and give them a spin. I have to wait for the Duratex to get here. They need break-in anyway.

Heres the pics.

I couldn't wait to here them. I put a broke-in pair of Besty k's. Hooked them up to my HT system. Preliminary testing sounds great. Mids and highs are very clear and sweet. They dont go as low as the 6.226 mltl's but there not room loaded as much either.
Now the WAF has gone up. I might not get them back to the listening room.

I'll try them with my main system this weekend. Room loading and the tube amp system will make a big difference.

So far I'm more than pleased with them. More testing asap.

Kool! If all goes well, they should sound like a big, well damped sealed alignment except with some mid-bass gain.

Well after a long delay. The cabs are getting a finish. Should be done by monday. Three coats of minwax poly. Looking good so far. Pics soon.

Understood, I resemble that remark! To paraphrase an old saying, 'what I use to do all day long now takes me all day long.

They are finished! I set them up in my living room just to see how they work in a large space. The mids and highs are excellent. Bass is tight but not as low as my 6.226^3 cabs. Still no need for subs. Tonight I'll put them in the smaller listening room. Loading will make a difference.
The flash in the pics dont do the finish justice. Look much better in person.

I added a handle on the front. Also the mesh screens in the port come from dollar general mesh trash cans.

Update tomorrow on the listening room tests. There keepers!!

Thanks GM for the specs and help.

Mark

You're welcome! Thanks for following through on both designs! So few folks do.
