Great wood working, simple design but it works and looks good.
How does that sounds ? 8)
Thanks! I’m slowly getting better at building good enclosures, I made rabbet-joints on this one with my router. There are a few oops and d’ohs on the finishing, but I can live with that, the basic box is solid.
They sound pretty good, although I wish my room was larger, as these really wake-up with some power, but it’s quite deafening by then. 🙂 They’re still good at low levels. With ~4.5cf of net volume and Fb=32Hz, I’m getting a smooth LF roll-off, which complements the room, keeps things from being boomy in there. These are bi-amped and the miniDSP 2×4 is a great little toy. I’ve struck a decent balance of bass extension and punch with this system IMO, the Lambda woofers are great drivers. Still waiting on the phase-plugs to finish optimizing the crossover. The BMS 4550 is excellent as well, I’ve played it on other waveguides before (K-Tubes, DIY Smith horns) and it’s also very good on the QSC. Sounds better than the Al/Ti diaphragm drivers I own.
I am in Canada. I did check with the UPS and IIRC the calculated shipping charge was extremely high. Do you know the box dimensions so I can maybe check again, I know I had 2 x 28lb correct, but was not sure on box dim.
I was wondering about your Fedex “Great Rates” method and if it was any cheaper. I also wanted to see if there was a way I could save by either having it shipped directly to me or to a Kinec point at the border where I’d pick it up. I gave both addresses in my laste e-mail sent on May 25th.
