I am weak for American muscle cars and wood of various kinds.

So Ihas built AC Cobra for over 20 the seasons.

When I had the time and desire council so now begins to become clear.
I have also built contest sound in it which was extremely difficult because it is
so crowded everywhere.


I will post a thread on car audio so you can see to read a trip in 20 years
construction.
But it will be next week.

It really is my life project.

We know the deal no pictures so it has not happened.

It was incredibly nice banana / Contacts sat hard when you expand the pin and there were two large screws for speaker wire and I will use
Supra Classic 4.0 2x4 mm.

Cobra, you have had 6 LMSR-15's sitting in boxes for almost a year while you chop wood.
I would have bit my fingers off with impatience long ago. How do you keep from going crazy?

I just hope you won't be let down by super-high self-imposed expectations of uber sound quality after spending all this time on it.

Whatever you do, don't damage the woofers, as TC has basically gone bankrupt now (or something.)
TC woofers are now rarer than flying unicorns...

In Sweden having patience is a virtue.

But there are several factors that make construction has taken a long time.
Myself have been ill, and the first two towers were not mine as we started with and
I thought they would be made​​.

Would he himself helped to build, then so does he live 75 miles one way from me.

Since I work shifts and there are many times it does not fit.
And so we're very short summer and then wants to do other fun things.

I know there are good elements but they do not sound better than the room, and DSP
to lets

I'll be careful with woofers for it is not so easy to fix if something breaks.

But I will try to be ready during winter with this project.

Sincerely, / Roger

Some pictures how I plug / screw the speaker plugs in the box.

Tight O-ring and then Loctite 577 externally and internally the same thing additionally drilled so I have to thread on
shaft / speaker plug in the hole ..... I think it will be dense.








So it happens that an exciting thing tomorrow you'll see how the first Bastornet will look like painted in matt black 15th
It will be fun to see ....

Sincerely, / Roger

Warning of strong images!

I think the guys were a little exhausted after having carried the base three floors up, so they put it temporarily.
But it looks hopeless out with such small fronts but he should change fronts, but I think he'll put it on the left side of the doorway.

So it does not take so much attention / place out TV wall.

Thanks for your comment.

Now, only the second base tower to be finished lacquered.
Since making the speaker with shrink tubing and fittings, etc.
Also to purchase the power amplifiers, etc.

I am glad that you mention proportions on base tower is one of the things
i have worked hard to get to.

Larger base is becoming even more important how the proportions are.

A small update has started gluing my first.

But unfortunately it has become a little miss track that was milled on the front was a little oblique grinded it can be corrected, but as I should have mahogany sides so it will be quite a lot of extra work to get it nicely.

Then I think sanded by hand to get so much smoother lines than what a machine can ever do but it takes time on the lid and bottom.







Will buying copper download and speaker cable in the week will be
fun tweaking around with it too.

It will probably be quite a few hours there

These are without question among the most impressive DIY sub cabinets I've ever seen. The bracing alone is extraordinary. I sincerely hope when they are finished you place them in optimal locations in your listening room so that you may enjoy the most benefit.

Thanks for your comment.

They will stand on either side of where we sit and play against us.

Which means that we will feel the diaphragm moves when playing deep
frequencies.
They will be 1/4 into the room that will be a good placement since the.
I have a good DSP assistive
