Well ..... they are done ..... Smiley

We hauled them to my listening room last night and forgot to bring Mike's camera ..... so, unfortunately, I am forced to share a couple of photos taken with my crappy digital camera that couldn't focus if my life depended on it ..... Undecided

I will borrow Mike's camera and have a few proper photos in a day or two ..... Roll Eyes

Yeah, Randy, the short version isn't going to cut it.  My jealousy is merely piqued and not entirely consuming me.  Okay, well maybe it is but I want to hear about it anyway.

Congrats.

Forget the camera, the pictures are beautiful! I'm sitting here looking up and down this page and sinning over and over, again. Smiley
Not really ..... I'm very happy for you, Randy. I can't imagine how they could be built any better or look any nicer. Hats off (and thrown in the air) for Sir Mike!

Just like Dave, I gotta know. You will need weeks for the break-in and we all realize this, but the first watt question is just hangin' there. Please, throw us a bone!

Bass frequencies need no toe in 60.

Bass horns have only a slight directionality noticeable in free space or half space as an eggshaped high pressure area.  It is only an extremely close field phenomenon, but it makes close field use like monitoring in a studio setting, difficult.

At approx. the distance equal to the horn mouth circumference the effect is completely nullified and the horn will have the normal cardiod at mid bass to omnidirectional at the lowest bass dispersion pattern you would expect from any other low frequency radiator. In 1/4 or 1/8 space, however, there is so much reinforcement from the corners themselves, the low frequency horn's directionality is not noticeable, unless someone is listening about a foot from the mouth or something crazy like that. Those people usually go home pretty sick at the end of the night.

The only reason for turning the cabinets would be to try to increase the efficiency of the corner loading. The loading of corners might be increased by facing the Imperials into the corners at some angle, but I would try it straight ahead first, just for esthetic reasons. You might not need to "retune" the corners at all.

I agree with this statement from 60ndown, and would be curious if you get as good a results as I've gotten.  I'm seeing a 6 to 7 db increase in SPL by just turning one sub around so it fires into the corner.  This is without any power increase from the amp.
