    The other benefit to the Dynavox LW5004 was its natural rolloff. I think I had a parallel notch on it and that was it to get it to behave.

      The LW5004 pretty much has a natural roll off at 5k. You can get a LR6 in the 3khz area with only a coil and cap.

          Here is fully assembled before InDIYana, wrapped in fiberglass and skimmed in body filler waiting for final sanding, and finally in polyester primer

            Nick, What did you do for the fiberglass layer? One or two layers of cloth? Did you rough sand the cloth before the filler?

              John, it has two layers of cloth and I just gave it a quick sanding to knock down any high strands and give the filler a little more to grab onto.

                I think you just like the challenge of making weird shapes Amazing work!

                Those LW5004 are NLA?

                  The original slab-and-bolt-frame are NLA from PE, but I bet they are still able to be acquired. The newer slim-frame are a virtual drop-in as some people have reported.

                    Wogg, you hit the nail on the head. That is the exact reason I have not purchased a cnc, I like the challenge of it all. Don't get me wrong a cnc can do some amazing things, but I prefer to work out difficulties manually.

                    Ben, I'm not sure when that change actually took place, maybe you recall.

                      If you mean from old to new versions, it's only been maybe a year and a half to 2 years ago. I know MCM was just starting to stock them in April of 2016. Geoff had a display at InDIYana that year, and they were just then getting their stock in. PE then stocked them later that summer, and the slabbed units were at the time still available. Eric Levenchuck (brkitup) built his 'Simplicity' that year with the honeycomb version. My guess is that the slabbed units went NLA at PE sometime in the first half of 2017.

                      I still love the look of the old units!

                        I really liked these too. Beautiful speakers with a highly polished automotive finish. Very cool and interesting name & shape. And a real challenge to photograph properly: Pure white cabinets against jet black drivers. The exposure has to be just right to keep good detail in the blacks & whites.

                        From my notes: "Good mid to upper tonal balance, highs are right on the money, depth perception very good, clarity excellent. Bass extension is a little weak." But to be fair, you are simply up against the laws of physics here. You really cannot expect lots of deep bass from a 5" driver in a small box. Look forward to hearing these again at Indy.

                        Bill.

                          Thanks Bill, I was just trying to keep you on your toes......photographically. Honestly I didn't know that the black and white would be a problem, I would have thought that the reflection off of the clear to be the issue.

                            How did you run the port? Did you mount the crossover internally inside? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

                              The port is on the bottom angled portion, and is just cut at 90 degrees internally, and the crossover is built on two separate boards that are attached to the top, with one on the flat and one on the 45. Mounting the crossover is one of the things that I struggled with most, there just aren't any good places.

                                a part of the function of the unique baffle shape is controlling diffraction, yeah?
