One thing you could add to a few pictures would be something for relative size...a coke can, banana, etc. I remember in one of your earliest posts there was something that made me realize they are smaller than I was picturing in my mind. I think the large roundover on the corners is deceiving and makes them seem bigger than they are.

    Pretty Persuasions project is finished!

    They are finally finished and ready to take to the InDIYana DIY speakerbuilding event!

    I'm very pleased with how these turned out, visually they met my goal of creating a unique and notable look, acoustically the shape of the cabinet reduced any diffraction issues and made baffle-step-compensation a breeze.

    If you remember the drivers in-cabinet measured the same as the factory advertised response curves even. The cabinet is non resonant and structurally stable and sound.

    They also sound excellent, they image well and have a very coherent sound, they are dynamic, detailed, accurate and meet my expectations with my typical reference music I use to evaluate every speaker I build and listen to. If I had to critique or characterize them them are on the forward side due to the small hump around 2.6khz, but not offensively so and they have a warm and detailed sound, voices are natural and stand out vs. being more dark or shaded. They have excellent bass response and require no subwoofer, there is no port noise and bass is tight, fast and precise.

    In room they easily play 30hz notes and resolve well the deepest bass notes in music I listen to, they effortlessly play 105db at 1 meter down to 35hz. Thank you for following along everyone, I hope you get to see and hear these at some point, I appreciate all the encouraging words along the way and the many of you that engaged in this project along with me.

    Speakerbuilding would be a fraction of the fun w/o your camaraderie along the way!

    Thanks! Javad

    Thanks Bill!

    The one thing about those jumpers I would change, is to put either a small T on one end, or a short bend. The reason being, is that when installing them with the cabinet standing vertically, the T or bend would provide a small stop for precise positioning every time an installation or removal is required. Drop-twist-twist-twist. If there is no stop, then you have to hold onto both or one end(s) of the rod for alignment, whilst tightening the knobs. It just seems like that would be of great benefit to me.

    They are cool nonetheless!

    My 2c,
    Wolf

    Javad, you're making me feel like a slacker. I finally have all my drivers ordered and the last shipment should arrive today. It's time to finish the box design and start making some sawdust.

    Those look great. I love the way the grain turned out with that finish, and I'm still impressed that those are a bent, "solid" piece of wood!
    Ben I always look forward to see what you're doing, thanks for the kind words =)
