    BTW, your build will probably be the reference for any Voxels with the SA70. Rock on, Garth.
    The voids are very tiny, except for on that can be filled in...I don't think they will be an issue.

    Regarding the reference build for the SA-70....:eek:

    Thanks, Robert

    Yes Kevin I was, however, my wife said she would like just black...so there you go. Since the Kairos are fauxed which includes waxing, they will stay that way and match the bass module when it is complete. That way they will stand out. As I said I already have the 2 Quarks with wood graining. They will be in the back of the room, less noticible.

    Also in case you did not see the Quarks from Eric....they are also primed.

    Glad we could help Robert. I forgot to mention when I posted the pics earlier that the port and amp could go on either end as long they stay together. In other words, it could be mirrored. This might help depending on how you would position it in the room. Let me know if you have any questions. Looking forward to the pics, have fun!
    Thanks again Kevin. I like the way the pic looks and will probably go with that.

    Well I haven't started cutting, so everyone is safe! :D'

    No problem at all, Paul.

    What a sketch, Kevin!....WOW!

    Thanks, guys, so much.

    No problem Paul, the oversight wasn't obvious to me either until I had the enclosure drawn and started to load the components, and then there was that "Uh Oh" moment. Your volume calculations were spot on and it wasn't a difficult fix.

    Thank you Sir. I know this is a highly regarded design of yours and just thought some other people might like a solution for it with this plate amp. I look forward to building one myself here in the very near future.

    Re: SA70...where do I go from here.....

    Ok Robert, here is what I've worked out. I tried to stay as true to Mr. Carmody's original design as possible. The woofer stays in the same place, and the port is still 2.25" down from the top of the enclosure but had to be moved off center due to the amp. Paul's (bullittstang) revised dimensions worked out, just needed to move the amp from the end of the enclosure to the side.







    There is certainly enough room to move the woofer to the end of the enclosure instead of the side, but the end of the port would then be pretty close to the back of the woofer's output, so I don't know how that would affect the performance of the sub. I have learned first hand that boundary re-enforcement can change the tuning. In other words, if you don't have DAT's to confirm the tuning, maybe not a good idea. Best of luck on the project Robert.
