Shino, how are you going to get them to levitate like that?

Maybe if you knew him from his stage name "David Copperfield" you would not have to ask the question

He is going to make them levitate (or appear to) by using either unobtanium or translucent concrete.

No, no, no. You've all got it wrong. First, you support it like you would any other speaker. The real trick is to create a worm hole directly in front of the support structure, thus causing the light to warp around it and create the illusion of the structure not being there. Quite simple, really.

BTW, I have posted about this before, but there is such a thing as translucent concrete:


It's translucent, not see-through or invisible, so it is still there. Cool stuff though!

I finished my other sub which is an exact Copy of the first. The Wife bought me another driver for Xmas. Have some Mains in the works too so the 2 subs will work well. Using my surrounds for mains duty and 3.1 does not rub me right.

All thanks to a great wife and an understanding mother-in-law who lives above us. Just yesterday I told my wife about her association to my addiction and she just laughed at me, told me to be careful what I wish for when I ask for presents........I wonder if this will score me a 32" LCD.

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of my build. Thanks to everyone who helped with advise. It's basically from the plans on Rythmik's site. The finish is as you guessed, Rhino Liner.















It's never over, it's never finished....it's never cheap.

Yeah, had a piece lying around from something my brother in law was doing in his car so I just said what the hay and used it in both subs as I didn't have to go get any extra wire.

Who needs light and fresh air when you can sit in a darkened room coming up with evil plans such as these:

[pics]

These ones will be getting underway this coming weekend. Eight Peerless XLS 10" drivers in sealed cabs with LT(Q=0.45 Fc=15hz), two bass arrays one per side to compliment the mains. EQ'd using software that's smarter than IBM's deepblue.

This is bass head central so I'll start up a thread to show the progress of these phallic extensions.

Thy if you read this, then yes this is stage one of the line array plan.

Bad-azz, plain and simple

Good point, I was thinking the same thing. We know how good you are Shino, we just wanted to up the ante for you

I like it with the angles instead. That is assuming that you won't be covering the beauties with a grille....

I agree and unless really done properly actually detract from the sound (many people never even think of this) because of edge diffractions on the cabinet as well as having the fabric in front of the drivers....

I ended up putting black fabric around my mains since they were first done in a light oak and I didn't want to re-build the cabinets or strip and stain them black... I didn't make any frames for the fabric, just wrapped the speakers and actually stapled (standard staples for paper) into the wood and it has worked for years now.

I've been reading through this thread and would really like to see these speakers built by Shinobiwan that everyone is talking about, but they won't load for me! Is anyone else unable to view them?

If you happen to be viewing at work, they may have the site blocked that hosts the files. I know that happens to me sometimes.
