@Vince - what is the idea behind placing no-rez (I assume?) around the x-over on the X-Voce?

I am actually the second owner of these speakers.   The original owner is also on here, Steven Stone.   He wrote a review on them way back when where he described the modifications you see.   The Ninja Crossovers came later:  https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/im-x-static-for-voce

EDIT:  Side note, here is the genesis of the modifications that came after the article:  https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=61602.msg628580#msg628580

@mlundy57 - those are some beautiful speakers - I love how you have integrated the design between the various components.

Does anyone have thoughts on my previous question of using 25mm (~1 inch) thick MDF for the cabinets, with 18mm for the internal baffles?

Thanks for all the notes - I'm learning a lot.  Just waiting for a few quotes back from Danny before hopefully placing an order - I guess inventory holding is a major head-ache for everyone presently.

Thanks. They sound way better than they look.

You can use the thicker MDF, no problem. Just be sure to adjust the dimensions so that the internal volume stays the same.

@Vince - that was a very interesting read.  My anticipation is building for these things.

@mlundy57 - thanks for the notes on internal volume - that aligns with my thinking.

Looks like Danny and Co have just received a delivery of top-notch components - hopefully my quotes are in the mix, somewhere  :D

Ive been meaning to ask this and thought it best to do so here rather than make a new thread.

The CNC flat pack for the X-Voce on the GR website appears to have a front baffle that is wider for the sealed sections than the open-baffle section. Looking at the supplied plans, the front baffle is to be one consistent width from end to end. Does it matter? Or more directly, what is the correct layout?

I need to convert the Spanish/metric instructions into a format that will work for me. Planning on using kreg pocket screws to secure sides/top of sealed chambers, then rabbiting the backs and attaching that way.

X-Voce cut list in English

Bottom: 36" x 14 1/4"
Sides: 7" x 14 1/4"
Back Panels: 7" x 7"
Top Panels: 8 1/2" x 14 1/4"
Baffle: 36" x 8.5"


I used this _exactly_ to build mine.

Yeah the measurements in the original AV cabinet are all in Metric, so the cuts and spacing arent 1:1

I sent Danny a new cut sheet thats in English and more similar to the current X-Series pages, but I still need to adjust some woofer spacing on the front page before we can get it up on the website, tho my PC isn't currently up and running, so i can't make the necessary changes until the rest of my stuff arrives in the next few days.

I got some plans from Danny for the X-Voce, along with some corrections he wanted to make.  As I'm considering local CNC router cutting for the flat packs for my proposed builds - just waiting for quotes (because y'know, COVID), I've been using drawings as a starting point - I had to make adjustments to the PDF.  I edited it like this....



And, yes, I'm going to have to adjust back from imperial to metric.

Hope this helps.  I also deleted the binding post cut-out (not shown) as I want to go with tube connectors.

Yup that's the one I was working on. Jut need to fix the values, like what is shown in your pic. :P
