Well if you haven't seen me mention it, I'm building an enclosure that needed 5 sheets of MDF. My first estimates were at 7 sheets so I'm glad I was able to do some math and cut that cost down. That is part of where the name came from, but it also came from my sigs right-hand side... if you can guess what that's from.

There is still a ton of work to do on it but one of the crappiest parts has been completed.

Here are the first images of the journey.

The MDF..... I guess Canadians gots all the trees :rolleyes:

My brand new fancy saw horses, I thought they were a steal at $20 each with the heavy construction.

I have a very similar saw, 'cept I don't use the guard.

Is this going to be a large folded horn, bandpassed, or TL?

Jntar yelled at me so I'll get some real pics up. Tonight all I have is a teaser but tomorrow while it's light out I'll take some more :)

This picture kind of gives it away if you use your imagination ;)

thank you for the info... I dont follow football... for those also wondering:

about Ryan Leaf ....

Ryan David Leaf (born May 15, 1976 in Great Falls, Montana) is a former American football quarterback

".............However, despite his athleticism, his time as a pro was short and marked by failure, which according to critics was largely due to his immaturity, arrogance, and poor work ethic. Leaf is widely considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history.[2]"



of course, DOM, I am not insinuating anything! LOL!

I'm honestly wondering if the design doesn't have to be changed because of the original parts not being available on the market.

So when are you planning on finishing? 2035? Or is that rushing the creative process there.

That's just a smidge over 1/2 of it. The rest is pretty much built, just need to attach it all and put veneer or paint, or both.....or neither on it.

Had a chance to Listen to the Quads a little bit closer at CES this year. Absolutely amazing. The sound stage can be compared to very few. Very open. I'm thinking of picking up a pair for my two channel room and getting rid of my maggies. Still going to stay with my B&W's in my main theatre room though. BTW interested in the finished product of "the ark". Hope it doesn't take another 2-3 years. ;)

joetama
01-28-2009, 01:55 AM
I'm not going to lie, there really isn't any single model of speaker I could live with the rest of my life.

I would love to be rich enough to have an electrostatic room, a horn room, a pro-audio room, and a couple of piston speaker audio rooms. Along with a tube room, a MOS-FET room and a bipolar room.

What model of maggies and what amp are you using junior?

I have the 2.6R's running off of my Copland CTA 505 tube amp. The amp is modded to run full class A power. Tubes on stats make for a good match.:)

I also had a chance to hear the Avantgarde Duo Omega's at CES. Another set of speakers I'm looking at picking up. Probably my favorite horn speaker. At 107 dB sensitivity, they take very little to make them sing.

Wouldn't that be ideal. If I were that rich I might as well just build a house for stereo audio and a separate house for HT. :)

And maybe one to live in. :D

You got the idea. But, now I'm thinking build an entire movie theater with ultra high quality Cinema speakers that way I can invite 100 of my closest friends to come watch movies with me.
