Heres a pair of GR Research Super V I have just completed.
Took a few liberties with original cabinet design.
PAudio 12" co-ax on top
Rythmik servo subs on the bottom.
All Open baffle.
Floor spikes to come.
They sound great!

Holy Hell. Fantastic!!!

If they sound half as good as they look they must sound amazing.

You are a craftsman sir! And a fine looking room as well...love the red and black. smile.gif

I used to come up to your neck of the woods a couple times a year to see my grandfather in Fort Saskatchewan until he passed away 2 years ago...wish he was still around, I would love to detour over and have a listen!

Wow, amazing work!

Is that an OB CD on the back of the coaxial?

How far away is that from Cardston? I'm up there quite a bit.

Kind of far...564 kilometers (350 miles).

Can you tell us a little bit about the cabinet? Ie, what kind of wood did you use? What and how did you do to get that gorgeous finish?

The back of the PAudio has been milled out to make it a true dipole

I'm about 25 mins east of Edmonton, just drop a PM if anyone would like to have a listen.
My door is always open.

Sure...Heres some pics of the build.

The majority of the cabinet is either 1/2" or 3/4" MDF.
I wanted to keep the "H" frame as inert as possible so
I decided to sand fill it between 2pcs of 1/2", then laminate over it.
The outside round is flex 3/16" plywood made of Italian poplar.
It just sounds expensive, it was only $50.
The inside round is 1/4" flex plywood. This stuff is incredible.
It has a thin layer of rubber between the plys...you can free bend
it to almost any shape you want......its was $50 as well, so $100 total
for the plywood veneer and I had a lot left over.









After the bottom cabinet was made the rest was easier to build.
The top baffle was just routered out and placed on top of the sub cab.
Gussets were made to hold the top baffle secure and all was glued and screwed
to hold in place. The void is where the x-over sits.










After that I made a back drop in piece for the binding posts. This is removable
its screwed from the bottom, in case I want to change or service any connections.



The finish was a desperation move. I wanted to get auto paint applied, but
just couldnt get anyone up here to do it.....the busy season up here.
So I thought I would try a faux finish, if I didnt like it I could always sand
it off in the spring and paint them then. Off to home depot, some paint,
glaze and a sea sponge later I was painting.....they turned out beautiful.
I'm keeping them the way they are. I applied a few coats of wipe on poly
to give them a bit of a sheen.







Thanks for all the kind words

Perry

Sweet!

Never heard of such a thing, .... superb.

How about your take on the sound?
Anymore details?

What's the crossover point to the subs?
Damn, that cab work on the subs is thick, love the appearance, very nice.

Thanks for sharing ..
