    Thank you.
    Can you also tell me the baffle width?
    From my pencil chicken scratches docs, looks like 8 3/4 external, using 3/4 inch plywood for the box.

    Here you go, my friend. They really are a lot of fun. I have pushed them very far, and started to hear the vent chuffing, but still the woofers
    were pretty well behaved.

    There are several well reviewed diy designs using the SB-Acoustics SB17NRXC35-8 and SB29RDC-C0004 speakers.
    In the USA, Madisound sells (1.1” dome $52, 6.5” midrange $58).
    In Canada Solen sells (1.1” dome 39$ Can, 6.5” midrange 83$ Can).
    The T+M crossovers will cost about $40 using standard grade L/R/C parts liteblue.
    Uses a 1650-1700Hz crossover for smooth nearfield controlled directivity.

    Unclemo those are works of art. That sapele wood is a work of art itself.
    Beautifully executed and finished.
    Andy.

    Unclemo, those cabinets are stunningly beautiful! And without a CNC, yikes! I think that some of the sawdust blew up north.

    Honestly it was mostly about patience, but thank you.

    Here you go Don, these are some pictures of my Galeon build. I just wanted to say thanks again for posting your design. I absolutely love these things. Great bottom end, buttery smooth mids and nice airy highs. I couldn't be happier. A couple quick details I guess. This build took a couple months, working on them when I had the time. Birch ply translam without a CNC (lots of time with the jig saw and just as much at the router table). The front, rear and top are solid 7/8" sapele that I used an aniline dye on to get the walnutish color. They were then sealed inside and out with 2 coats of shellac and sprayed with about 10 or so coats of lacquer. I've had these things playing for a few days now and all I can say is if someone is thinking about making their own set of Galeons, they are awesome, Don did a great job and was very helpful with answering questions. Thank you again good sir. I will be enjoying these for years to come!!!

    I'd love to come to Iron Driver and meet all the guys, but I can't justify the time or expense.
    With any luck, I'll be able to attend any Atlanta DIY meets after missing them for a few years.

    My three way "failed" or is "on hold" because I was trying to build a small 3 way (15 liters), and found that the
    midrange enclosure was causing a bit of + - 2dB wiggles in a critical area. I'd need to probably
    destroy the boxes and baffles and start over, so I shelved them and moved on for now.
    Oh, I see. Cheers Don
