  • Brotherly Tritrix

    Finishing up a ported Tritrix build (19.3 L built to Curt's website specs) for my brother. Thanks to this online community (and others alike) for all the support. I'll be building a version of the Statements (most likely the Minis) in the near future, and a pair of Overnight Sensations for living room recording studio monitors for a cousin this weekend. !!

            As I was typing out the start of my AviaTrix MLTL build thread, I realized I never updated with completed pictures! Painted the stands black per request. Being my first build, I can't be too harsh on myself for how the baffles turned out: the roundover along the top edge burnt the oak (my router is an old fixed speed Craftsman) and the tearout on the right top edge from the same roundover process. Live and learn! Lots of living and learning to come with the AviaTrix, Digger8, and sometime in the future the Statement II ... or IV ... or Finalist III.

            I must say it again, these sound so awesome for ~$200 in parts.

            PS, BeerParty, your AviaTrix build on htguide is what inspired me to take the plunge with this design, on top of being so impressed with the Tritrix cousin.

              Beautifully done, Josh. I really like the stands, too.

              How did you attach the baffle to the cabinet?

                Might as well throw up pics of the OS MT as well, for some reason I can't find a finished pic (black paint) but I stole one off my cousin's Instagram of it paired with a Leipai amp I steered him towards. He uses them for general playback and monitoring for music recording.

                  Thanks Tom, your compliment fuels the "-phile" in my audio obsession, lol. The baffle was glued on oversized then flush trimmed to size. I installed everything via the bottom midwoofer cutout. The big mistake was taking the oak baffles into the garage (winter in central MD) to work on them, then back inside to store them. I hadn't thought that process would warp (bowed along the grain) the wood that quickly, over a time period of about two weeks. They installed and glued up fine, though there is a little more gap, looking down from the top, on the L/R edges.

                  The OS MTs I made have a removeable rear wall, and for the Aviatrix I'm planning on sealing everything up again. I don't really ever plan on reusing enclosures... that's the fun part for me. The audio payoff is also equally as fulfilling, but making the enclosures from scratch is great.

                    Wow, those turned out great! Yes, tweeters to the inside and the stands are really nice. I think I can find all the little mistakes in every build I've done, going back to the late 70s and early 80s when I was making enclosures for those Speakerlab models. No one could see them except me, but I used to obsess with getting them "right". I learned that if no one else could identify the little imperfections, I could be satisfied that the speakers were actually "done" and turn them over to their new owner. It took me a while, but I got there. Those individual characteristics are what make them special and one-of-a-kind, and those I'd be proud to own. Good job...looking forward to seeing the Statements or Finalists when you get started.
