    The final speaker:



    A half cubic foot, F3 of 42 hz, and capable of just under 104db down to 35 hz with 60 watts of power. Boom. Headshot.

    Clamp Again


    Box Ready to Test


    Copper is ready! Are you?


    Ok, enough of that. I am going to cut and paste a bit about my design choices here from the PDF with all the build details you can nab below. First the response, the proof is in the pudding or so they say:

    I like what I see. Would you take them to Iowa?

      That is a great mid! I also like how you dealt with it's "issues".

      I really liked the finish, and I think you finally found your method- they looked very convincing.

        Thanks! They are no longer mine, but rumor has it the new owner may just be taking them to Iowa, so you could get your wish.

          Thanks Ben, I do really like the sound of the mid in the designs I've heard it in.

          I also think this is my best finish of this style yet, but I feel that the actually texturing part could be improved some yet. I have more speakers to build, so this won't be the last time you've seen this style!

            Nice build! I learned a trick with hammered paint: cold paint/surface increases the effects. So put the paint/metal in the freezer or go outside in winter
