  • Your thoughts on my cabinet design ? Just renderings

    Just want to know what people think of the design. The color is probably going to be red just to make a statement when you see them. I Google Scetched them up in with actual measurements and a mock up of my small living room.
    I basically want to know , if you like the design aesthetics of it ? I know they are rather large but the enclosure design calls for it.



    Thanks ,

      It's more like the Sophia after seeing them in person I really liked look. So I changed it up a bit to match the drivers I want to use.
      If you have ever seen the Sophia's in person it's almost the exact size and shape.

          Looks good!!! If you can achieve 1/10th the sound of the Sophia's you have done yourself well.

            Never heard any Wilson's, myself, but I dig the look. Go for it!

              Nice looking cab, the red should be killer.

              I've been thinking along the same lines for my CV box rebuild simply for the aesthetics.

                The nice thing about sketchup is that you can use it to figure out all those angle cuts, instead of having to be a mathematician. I say go for it, looks killer! I love seeing complex angled boxes, especially when they're DIY, it takes a lot of work to make everything fit together right. Looks like fun though.

                  I say go for it, but I don't the look. It's not your fault; I've seen very similar designs and just never liked the shape of speakers that look like that. On the other hand, others like them and even if you think they're ugly, I'm sure you'll be a better builder after it's done. I still those type of speakers are ugly ...not yours in particular though.

                    :rolleyes: Anyone who applies themselves in learning speaker design and crossover theory and uses correct procedure can easily meet or exceed any manufactured speaker out there. It's not magic it's about scientific reality.

                      I'm w/ OCD. IF you want something dramatic w/ similar designs. Search for the Blades. That is a more esthetic, dramatic design IMO.
                      I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.

                        A bit clunky looking, if I'm honest. Try to get some curves in there. Maybe big fat roundovers on the vertical edges... something.

                        Should be some awesome full rangers there. Keep us posted!

                          They will look great, esp. with a huge presence. Go for it!

                            They look good. What drivers are you considering?
