Caintuck Audio model name changes
01/11/22 at 06:29:04
 


As I was developing new versions of the speakers and baffles for my product line, the naming of them was pretty much a process of "flying by the seat of my pants" .....

It was recently brought to my attention that there was some confusion related to the "Plus" and "Magnum" names.

So ..... I am now referring to all 1 1/2" thick baffles as the "Magnum" series. They are configured for rear mounted drivers.

The "Plus" baffles are only available for the various 8" drivers and are 7/8" thick with rear mounted drivers.

The "original" baffles for all driver models are 7/8" thick and configured for front mounted drivers.

This should simplify things a bit and hopefully reduce the confusion.

Current Product List

There are currently 12 orders in the build queue and shipping on new orders is at eight to ten weeks.

Many thanks to Steve for promoting Caintuck Audio products on the Decware Audio website and forums .....

Happy listening,
Randy

Thanks for the update Randy. Congrats on the orders, they are well deserved and likely keeping you out of trouble😉.

I'm loving my Lii 15 Magnum curly cherry baffles. I continued to be amazed at the music these speakers produce in my system. Truly beautiful sound that often brings me to tears.

What is the "Wenge" option 3 ?  Is that two tone finish?

Hi HK,

Thank you so much for the kind words .....
Surprisingly, about 75% of the new orders are for the thicker Magnum baffles. They are a lot more work to build, but they sound good and the feedback from customers has been VERY positive.

Hi jec3504,

Wenge is a very dark and beautiful African hardwood.
When linseed oil or poly finish is applied to it, it turns to a color that is nearly jet black.  Unfortunately for me, it smells like dog poop when it's being sanded or routed.
Happily, for the customer, there is no "aroma" on the finished baffles .....

This is a photo of a Wenge Lii 15 Magnum baffle .....



Happy listening,
Randy

This made me laugh.  This summer I was working with some African Mahogany that gave me a bitter taste in my mouth.  Must be some kind of insect defense.

Wenge makes excellent guitar necks. I have two made by Warmoth: one on a Stratocaster with an ebony fretboard, and one on a Precision bass with its own (wenge) fretboard. Feels so good and seems to give a rich tone.
