    More or less it. Idea is that the sand will vibrate and the energy will dissipate into heat. I have no idea how will this will work in practice because the cabinets are way way way overbuilt, but hey its DIY so why not lol.

    Im in the process of putting on the gloss finish coat. I've been listening to them a couple weeks so finishing was delayed :D

      Do you have the cabinets finished? I'm really curious to see how these turned out.

            Beautiful work all around...can I ask how you applied your gloss and what you used? (Lacquer, poly, shellac, special sauce, etc?). Did you use a sprayer or buff that nice gloss?

              Very nicely done. I'll bet you have hundreds of hours invested in building them...

                What kind of Ribbon Tweeter does that speaker use? Is that a Raal or a Fountek?

                  Neither. I wanted something with performance like a RAAL but less costly so I am importing these and receiving great comments on the sound.

                    They kinda look like the old Ravens.

                    Are you going to be selling them individually as well, and do you have any pricing/specs?
                    Just curious,

                      I sell them in matched pairs for $350 including shipping but can also provide single units for center channels. The sensitivity is 90db with a 6 ohms impedance. Can cross as low as 1.8K or even lower with the right slope. Very flat response (I can supply curves from the baffles I've used). Excellent power handling and low distortion. It compares well with the RAAL 70-20XR, in some ways I think it's better but it is a little lower in sensitivity.

                        $350 per pair including shipping for the kit, Does that include pre built crossover as well? I'm sure the RAAL is awesome but just a bit too expensive, I'm happy to see you offer an alternative. Is it an AMT Ribbon? or similar to a standard ribbon. I have always wanted to build/own a ribbon that's why I am curious. I have only heard them retail.

                          No, $350 is for the tweeters only. The Anniversario kit is $850. It's not an AMT and actually performs better than any of the AMT's that I've looked at (open to anyone proving me wrong on that).

                              How do you like the Auricles? Those use the RAAL tweeter correct? I am trying to decide which kit to build. I have already built the Fusion 12 of course that used a PCB crossover board. How difficult was it to build the Auricles Crossover. The anniversario looks like a very nice speaker although I have no idea what tweeter it uses so I cant compare them with a RAAL or Fountek. Im not sure if they would sound completely different or very similar.

                                There's an owner of the Anniversario who has owned a speaker with the RAAL as well - you can see his post on Audio Circle. I've used many different ribbons (probably more models than most any other designer). I'm importing this tweeter because it offers performance similar to the RAAL (in some aspects even better than the 70-20XR) for a lower cost. I'm a straight shooter and this was a no-brainer. It's easily better than the Fountek with more linear response, less distortion, and will cross lower.
