Well I remember back when I asked Dennis he said that a custom 2 cabinet would be identical to a Phil 3 cabinet (except for any driver size differences) and that it may affect sound a bit. So no worries for me
Ahh, gotcha. There is a difference in the pics for woofer. If there was no difference I was going to check with Dennis and just have mine upgraded to the 3's just to be a member of the club.
Okay guys, just to clear things up, the picture of the two pairs of Phils and CC includes one set of custom 2s and a set of 3s. Right now, all that needs to be done is to finish sand them, stain them and shoot them. I just need to find some time since we're pushing a project through the shop right now. Thankfully, the two customers picked pretty much the same stain color and they did it independently.
Now as far as what Dennis mentioned, he came to me and said he wanted to do something a little different for a pair to take to the CAF so I suggested a 4 degree rake on the front baffle and chamfering the edges instead of rounding them over. Did a test upper box for him so he can see what, if anything it does to his xover. I think it'll look good.
I also like the Paduk veneer though I've never worked with it before. There are a lot of nice veneers out there that we're looking at.
Your wife won't let you have just one room where you can be King?
I guess I'm lucky.
She'd probably let me have a room, but not that one. It's our main family room so I have to make a few concessions. The good new is that it gets used a lot so I can justify expenditures. She's put up with my Vandersteens for 25 years, so she's not all bad.
