    Red – End Of Silence

    …on my Bose Acoustimass 3 setup. The main speakers and sub are in need of serious overhaul, and I need to design for reduced weight this time. The Bose are tolerable for the time being, but I really miss my main system.

    Reduced weight ? May I suggest Baltic Birch Plywood ? 8)

    I’m thinking that I’ll do a sort of skeletal construction thing with the drivers themselves cinched down into layers of plywood and a plywood inner bracing system, but the outer layers of the box will still be MDF.

    You should give it a second thought maybe?

    A sheet of MDF 3/4″ is anywhere between 85-100 lbs.
    A sheet of Baltic Birch Plywood is near 60 lbs.

    Significant weight savings. Stronger and better material all around, except a bit harder to machine and a bit less damping, but much less resonance since it’s so much stiffer.

    You won’t save anything by doing the skeleton in plywood and the panels in MDF. You could do it the other way around, but doing a skeleton in MDF, well… hahaha!

    Anyway, good luck !

    Right now I’m listening to Mercenary The Hours that Remain, I’m probably the only one on this board who is into metal 😈 If anyone else here is into metal please speak up it would be nice to know I’m not the only one :mrgreen:

    Opeth isn’t really my kind of group, but it’s true that the part of song you talk about is great stuff ! 8)

    I’ve seen Dream Theater 3 times in concert. I’ve been a fan since Images and Words. All extremely talented musicians. Check out the covers they’ve done of Master of Puppets and the whole Pink Floyd Darkside album as well.

    U2 Rattle and Hum bluray here. They are coming near us this summer on tour with Muse should be a great show.
