Any ideas when the next preorder for the 1099 will be? I just order crossovers for them and need to kind of plan when to put my JTR's for sale. Can't believe I'm even saying that.

I need to talk with Celestion and find out when the midranges will be delivered.

Thanks Erich. Am I right in reading at the DIY site that I have to order the speaker packages with the cross over components?

I'm thinking of building the cabinets myself while waiting for the baffle and speakers kits to get back I stock. I see the dimensions on the DIY website but can't tell what is width vs depth.
12.5" x 36.25" x 14.5"
W x H x D?

Also is there any suggestions about the thickness of the wood used?

Thanks for tolerating my questions. I looked through the FAQ and a few builds and couldn't find the info.

np. dont put the bracing in until you have the baffle. It has to line up just right with the openings.

I was just wondering about the sealed mid enclosure and if those pieces come with the flat pack or not. Also was wondering if the depth dimension was including the baffle. If so I would need to know how thick the baffle is to subtract from the box. Nothing is easy.

the sealed mid enclosure is created by using two closed bracing sections. They are included with the seperate available flat pack but not the normal speaker kit that you get the baffle with. The depth includes the 3/4" baffle so if you are building a box you would want to subtract 3/4" from it so it would be 13.75" deep

So I am almost finished. I have some insulation laying around and want to use that to stuff. How much should I use in each compartment? Stuff it full?

Stuff the mid chamber fairly full. The woofer chambers should be more "lined". Stable or glue about 2" thick throughout and avoid blocking the ports.

if using egg crate for the woofer area, would you use 1.5" or 2.5" ? I have both.

I'd like to order a complete L/C/R kit with flat pack and completed crossover. Is now a good time, or is there a big/long backlog? Anyone know?

Thanks. I couldn't wait, so I put a ton of insulation in the woofer compartments and not a lot in the mid chamber. Should I take some out of the woofer areas and add some to the mid area??? What will having a lot of insulation in the woofer compartments do to the sound?

Filling the woofers a lot will just kill some of the bass output. Especially if the ports are impeded.

Filling the mid chamber up is about killing reflections. Not the end of the world. I would probably change them, unless it's a major pain.

Yeah I went ahead and changed it this morning and immediately noticed more bass. Here's what I ended up with.

I didn't put any stuff on the port sides. Hope that is okay too. Sounds fine.

Horns at ear level is best.

Take a quick look at the "setup of WG speakers" pdf at the start of this thread:

Hi guys, quick question please. I want to post pics of my new bamboo 1099 cabs but can't figure out how to do it. I looked but could not find a tutorial on how to do it. Can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks

Mario

If you click on advanced reply and then midway in the page is a way to attach / manage images. The easiest way is to host the pictures somewhere on-line and then click the inset image icon... past the URL to the image and done. If you need a place to host them temporarily, shoot me a PM and I'll host them for you.

Got my new bamboo cabs from Erich this weekend and I must say that are gorgeous. Erich and his woodworking guy did an awesome job. Here are some pics. Sorry for the crappy lighting.

Awesome cabinets... congrats! I don't see them on the website, is there a set price for these? I wonder if they are made for the 893 design.

Thanks. The cabs are sweet, nice and solid. I ordered these right after Erich posted the pics of the proto types a couple months ago so they are not on the site yet. I believe Erich said he was going to take orders for them for the next preorder coming up and was going to put them up on the site as well.
