Warpdrv's / Funky Waves 18.0 - LMS build - Page 2

post #31 of 206
After just discovering Josh's site this weekend, I have several items I'd like to send over for testing but I wasn't aware that amps were being tested. I only knew of Chuck in Florida doing tests and I haven't seen him around for some time. I might be picking up a 5050 if I can get one for a good price. I wouldn't mind sending it out to be tested. The ce4000 is another amp I'd like to get my hands on but I've never come across one. Eh, I'm playing catch up with all the great amps out there. Seems like the 5050 is the best price/performance amp out their if one were stepping up from a ep2500/4000 type amp. I'm pretty happy with mine. Solid amps for dirt cheap, well...relatively anyway.

Cool! Send me a PM about that when you put them up. I may or may not have the funds available by then. Still have a queue of components awaiting finances at the moment.

Will do. Should be 2 weeks.

Well you don't see those coming up very often, and I think that was the reason Ricci got me on the bandwagon of the 8002's... Can't say I am disappointed... Waiting for that phone call that mine is done from Crest, it'll be gettin close to a month here soon....

Maybe it'll just show up fixed with no bill.... I can dream right...

Getting closer....
Corner Inlays and all veneered up....
next up router the top and bottom, stain and finish it up...
I wish I could do that nice of woodwork...

Sure is purdy..... What colour are you going to stain it, Warp?
post #44 of 206
No stain, just natural Paduak, it is amazingly deep red with just a clear lacquer over it.

Really ?
I thought that first post pic had stain, so that's the color when just cleared - that is amazing

You've probably mentioned this somewhere, but where is this sub going (if I recall you already have a Submersive, another TC Sounds sealed box, and 3 of the monsters? Please god don't say "my bathroom system", as I'm already jealous enough as it is.
post #49 of 206
Beautiful!

However, I would definitely get them double up the baffles.

Going in the Bedroom setup - replacing the Submersive....

I'm pretty confident the box is built plenty sturdy...

Multi layered low resonance walls
1.5" thick top, bottom, and front panels...

The did not look that thick from the pictures. 1.5 is a plenty.
I would maybe glue some wood blocks behind where the mounting holes will be, insurance.

First set of pics was just the initial internal structure, the next set of panels were added to the top, front and bottom - along with the solid wood inlay around the outside.

"solid wood inlay", is that the rounded edging?

BTW, does Nathan do this himself or does he have a few staff? No idea what his operations are like!

Yes solid wood is glued into all the corners - which yields a much nicer surface to run the router on. Ply doesn't look nearly as nice routered.

Nathan will have to answer that last one.

Looks great. I love the colour of padauk, but the dust is a pain (it's an irritant). It'll darken quite a bit over time. Oxidation changes padauk quite a bit to a sort of blood red/brown colour.

Great thread!

That last photo is from a professional cabinet shop.
The white rack in the background is used to let cabinet doors dry. It appears he either owns a cabinet shop or he subs it out. Either way they do nice work.
