  • Working on a new design. Viawave/SATORI MW13P-8

    Playing around with 3D model of the speaker at this point. Contemplating bottom-firing port. I like the idea of a stalagmite, facing the port. Ukrainian builder cka3o4nuk executed this in his Cyclop (Troels Gravesen design) and I actually got his consent to interpret the design idea in my smallish two way. https://picasaweb.google.com/cka3o4nuk/Cyclob

    Most likely, this speaker will be gloss black.
    Will update as design progresses.

    Looks more like sculpture and not a speaker. Hope it's for DIY-NY. 😊
    Bi-da-way, Polk has used ports like that for years.

    Man does not live by measurements alone, a little music helps.

      I'm pretty sure I still have the Polk Powerport developers spreadsheet somewhere?.........

          I used that on my A Mains build. It lowered the tuning a couple of Hz, so take that into account when building yours.

            Did a bit more 3D modeling.

              Huh, plan on printing that thing or CNC? A table saw isn't going to get ya very far on that swoopy design!

                CNC.
                This is sort of an exercise for me. 3D modeling a complex shape, then virtually slicing it in to developable surfaces and finally machining.

                  Interesting. Please document and lay out your plan. Interested in trying something like this!

                    This looks terrific. Can't wait to see more.

                      Thanks guys.
                      I can actually save files as CAD and email them. It's too early for now. The surfaces are not cleaned up, there are discontinuities.

                        Thanks. I am interested in seeing how you slice. Would the individual slices also have the thickness carved, so it lines up with the next piece. I have not found the CNC to be ultra precise... There just a little but of an error.... Would still invoke a lot of sanding and filling... I guess.

                          Absolutely interested in seeing your progress on this. And those are beautiful drivers.

                              I think just flat black lacquer or poly.
