The SLOB. It's built so the main baffle is easily replaceable, I plan to try it with the 414/802-32B on a baffle at some point. I also have 12" co-axials by University, Tannoy & B&C to try, along with an 8" co-axial and several 8" full-range drivers. So many drivers, so little time ;)

These pics are a little overdue, but here they are anyway.... I made the wings a bit deeper, and rounded the corners to help me avoid injury (again) :sad-roulette:

I also changed the subs to the Dayton PA-465s, which have a larger Xmax & a bit higher qts, the bass is quite a bit more solid now. I could live with these for a while :obscene-drinkingcheers:

Sometimes it's the simple things that make a huge difference...

Before adding the dowels as cross-braces the wings flapped so much with low bass playing that you could see it, now you can barely feel it. I think I'm going to need to redo the bass EQ now ;)

Yes, there is a huge improvement in the bass since I was there few months ago......

Going to move the posts specific to my SLOBs here from the What do you know about SLOBS? thread, and add new ones as more development occurs..

OK, so I'm not the guy you need to see about finishing wood... But, I think they look a bit better than bare plywood...

Ok, back together after a second coat of stain on the baffles. Hopefully we won't scare anyone away this year just based on cosmetics alone....
