Jay,

They look really nice with the sealer. Should really be something with the lacquer.

Mike

Agreed !  I knew once  there was  "something" on them , they'd pop, but  when we were standing there watching the guy spraying the sealer,   I was pretty shocked at just how much  they changed.  Can't wait to see them all finnished up,  hoping I can get the  client to   post some pics when they are set up in his room  :)
I wouldn't hesitate to use this Indian Apple Wood (Tineo) veneer again, beautiful stuff

Kenny (the H-frame customer) has put a lot of trust and faith in you and I Jay! He contacted me about the subs after I raved about them and your H-frames a few times on the Audiogon Forum. He had a lot of questions about the subs themselves, which I did my best to answer. But it was after talking to Danny that he was really sold on them ;-). I then put him in touch with you, as he wanted the frames to match the finish on his speakers. Looks like he's getting his wish, 'cause they're beautiful!

Hey Eric
Appreicated the recommendation and we're  getting them as close as possible to his cabinets. After   he send us the chosen veneer,   cut a couple samples and had them lacquerd so we could send them down to him  where he could compare to his  existing cabinets
His wait is  getting close to being over   !

Here we go, 6 coats of  satin lacquer  and  they really do pop










Just need to glue the magnets in the grill frames,  pack them  up ,    and ship them off

A couple new projects on the go....
A set of  sloped triples with all woofers facing forward.  He  went with a small  over hang on the tops to eliminate the need to deal with a seam.  These are going out as flat packs





We also added  sloped duals   to our  designs.   Glued this pair up the other day for a customer,.  Flush tops, bot woofers facing forward, , front recessed grills,  .5"  roundovers all the way around.  finish will be  piano black

Looking good Jay.

Thanks danny
Both these sets will be  paired with  NX-Ottica's  hence both customers wanted the slped cabinets to match.. 

If anyone is looking for a "tandard" pair of duals, we'll turn post  #206 above into a Christmas/New Years specail :xmas:
Happy Holidays everyone

Update on teh India Applewood subs....
So  back in late Oct  when we went to box up the Indaia Applewood subs pictured above, we noticed some issues with the veneer, we just couldn't sen them as we weren't happy with  the job that was done:( 
Decided to call the client and explain the unfortunate situation Disappoiting but he understood and was actually appreciative we didn't ship  them and have  "make the call"
We buuilt out a 2nd pair of cabinets and  this time we did the veneer in house, another lesson learned the hard way 
The 2nd pair arrived  at their new home  just before Xmas (Mery Christmas Ken:xmas: ) and the new owner is getting them  ready for bass duty.  He sent me a few pics today with the drivers installed  and sitting in place with the speakers we  were trying to match

Those look fantastic Jay! Is the inset for the grill frame painted or veneered?  I am deciding that right now, the plan at the moment is veneer.

Best,
Ed

Thanks guys !.

Ed,  the insets are all veneer too,  was a bit tedious but I think  well worth the effort.  I'll try and get the  owner to get a shot or two without the grill frames at some point.

The veneer on the subs matches that on the owner's speakers really well Jay. Great job! I have been recommending the OB/Dipole sub regularly and frequently in the Audiogon Forum, which is where this owner learned of them. He then contacted me, and I referred him to Danny (who closed the deal and made the sale), and then to you. Hope he likes the sub as much as I predicted he would! It appears he has both his speakers and the subs sitting on Symposium Acoustics isolation platforms. A serious audiophile!

First class job Jay, those look great, and yes, the insets are just a bit tedious :duh: :lol:.

Will No-Rez be added?

Best,
Ed

Yup, he's got the no res, he'll add it last.

It would be great if Rythmik plate amplifiers came in L shape, bent right after the cooling fins.
This way one would be able to put the huge transformer and those caps in the cavity (bottom of the H frame would need to be some 4" tall), the cooling fins would be sticking out a bit, but all the controls would be in that case on the bottom back of the frame and everything in a single box.

Current height of the plate is 12-7/16", this would perfectly match both W and H frames with 12" drivers.
