I certainly wouldn't think so.

Hey Dave, I just realized the drivers I want to hang on your famous OB wall might be a bit much for them. I think the drivers are about 40 lbs. apiece. What do you think we can do? Maybe get that guy with the strong back to help support them? Also, the 16" frame has a cut out of about 14 3/8" methinks we might need a better securing method than the painters tape.

As you know, there are trees around here that they use for artificial vanilla flavouring but I wanted to make sure no one got any funny ideas.

Like me for example.

The big baffles can only accomadate 8" (i have some client W8-1808 i'd like to try out)

I have a jigsaw, we may be able to scare up something you can cut holes into.

Look forward to the diy fest this weekend.

David, I have 2 pieces of thin 1/16 ply about 30"x40" laying around for front baffles if needed.

Gary,

After last year's experiment with reinforced 1/4" and the goldwoods, we'd likely need to laminate quite a few layers togther... sounds like an ideal material for shaping into some sort of curved back enclosure....

I was talking with Bob (Creative Sound) today, and he is bringing over some clearance stuff. I also expect Gregg the Geek (Custom Valve Design) is likely to bring some of his boards, and i'm going to be offering up any stock of completed units for 20% off and will have lots of free or by donation & cheap stuff up for grabs. (so bring money if you think you are going to be tempted)
