      That really came out sweet! Maybe you could now invest in a camera. :D

          Fantastic -- can't wait to hear them in Chicago!! I will take some nice pics for you...LOL.

          BTW - what was the veneering method?

            Hot press glue. We used the heat lock glue from Joe Woodworker, and a standard clothes iron to affix it. Worked really well; smoothed out all the wrinkles in the veneer, just like it would with a shirt. Then trimmed with a fresh box cutter blade after all the edges were treated with cold press veneer glue and allowed to dry.

              You and Ryan never cease to impress. I won't make it to Chicago this year but hopefully I'll get a chance to hear them some time sooner or later.

                Wow those are just sick. Geat job Pete.

                May I offer a minor critique? Hopefully you just thought "ok", cuz here goes.

                In my humblest of opinions, the stands ain't working. You've got such a stout, curvaceous, monolithic cabinet sitting on top of pretty standard looking stands, which look too light and airy and scaffolding-esque in comparison.

                Ideally that form wants to grow out of the ground (like their big bothers), or a very stout platform that "grounds" them.

                They're a bit like potatos standing on toothpicks at the moment.

                Just this industrial designer's 2 cents.

                Again, beautiful design on this cabinets. You just need to work on how to lift them off the ground.

                ;)

                  LOL....

                  That design isn't going to be easy to pair up with stands. When I look at them I keep getting a "beer belly" image in my head.

                    Well that's a bit rough... lol...

                    I'm going to do a sketch of some stands for these that I think might work.

                      Ed is working on matching stands. We just used what we had on hand for now, while we wait for a matching foundation.

                      I'd love to see what you come up with Lunch.

                        That's got to be the strangest combination of "o_O; wtf " and ":eek: fantastic!" out there :D

                              Hello pete! Hope all is well as you prepare for the 'chi-town' diy event. I have been working to obtain data on the ne225's from tymphany, and have been cataloguing data to this end. Could you send me impedance sweeps, method of t/s parameter generation. Also, the serial numbers of the drivers that perform as desired, as well those exhibiting asymetry or non-linearities. On a side note, approx. How many mm's of excursion, unbaffled, are your drivers capable of before mechanical noises are induced? Thanks for your time and efforts.

                                I don't have them with me at the moment. 4 of them are up in Detroit, and 4 more are Ryan's. I can get the serial number information tomorrow and PM you with it.

                                The first lot that gave me noises has already been returned, and another lot sent to Detroit. The first indication is that the drivers are not making the noises the earlier lot did. And it didn't take much excursion at all to induce the noises.

                                Thanks for checking with Tymphany.
