  • Finished Paul Carmody's Swope MTM's for home theater...

    Vertical translam with some acrylic sides. I got sidetracked with work and life, so they took me forever, but I'm happy with the finished look.

    VERY attractive (to a speakerbuilder, anyway).
    Nice "flow" to the wiring.

        Cool AF!!

        A design that really highlights those beautiful drivers.
        Do I spy a pair of overnight sensations in the back?
        I love my overnight sensations and my Swopes.
        Paul has given the community some amazing gifts.
        I think the Sunflowers will be my next build.

        Enjoy, I know you will.

          Looks very cool indeed! Reminds me of some horn designs I've seen where the entire side is clear.

          Did you have any trouble getting a tight seal on the sides?

            I have the same question, there does not appear to be any sealant or gasketing around the sides...curious how you achieved a good seal.
            Also, in the first picture, how did you light up the edges?
            Great looking speakers, BTW. Well done.

            I have had varying opinions over time about acrylic sided speakers. Sort of a "not really my thing, but good for you" feeling. Maybe because I really appreciate wood grain and texture. Your's is probably the first example where I thought not only, "that's pretty cool", but also thought, "I'd like to build somethin like that". What pushes me towards liking it that much more is the small-form factor. I haven't loved acrylic on floor-standers but on a desktop I'm impressed. Great job. Thanks for sharing.
