What does Danny have to say about the material ? Is it a good replacement for aluminum?

I  wouldn't have gone with  it  without   having him   check it out.  Sent him a sample baffle  ages ago.

I think the composite material is going to work out really well. It appears to be very strong and it is much less expensive than sheets of Aluminum.

Do you anticipate any issues with shape retention considering how tall they are ?  Do you recommend any type of external bracing!!

Will the material take a finish or is it more along the line of a corian type material?

Best,

No problem  anticipated with shape/stability etc.  When  this stuff is bonded, it becomes one solid piece and the seam will never  show once it's been sanded smooth.
Yes,  it can be primed/painted  etc.
You can even throw it in the  tub and give it a bath if you  like, it won't  change shape

That's good to know. I can't tell you the times I've wished for such. Will it be dishwasher safe?





Kidding aside, this is really looking to be something special!

Man if I had the space (and funds lol) for a pair of these and a pair of H-Frame towers.  Alas, I'll just slum it with a pair of Super 7s.

Here are a  couple updated pics.

A few drivers in a small  MDF test baffle we cut.  Full baffles and wings to be cut next  week.


Finished base




The 5 bolt holes in each base are counter bored from underside  so bolts will be out of sight

Should be the only speaker around that convincingly outclasses the Super 7s.  Me jealous!

Don't listen to a pair!!!  I was perfectly happy with my LS9s until I heard those prototypes.  And the LS9's, when installed well, are comparable to the Super7s (different, some ways better, some worse).  But those Super LS speakers... I never heard anything at a RMAF that were close.  High end Wilson or TADs?  Not comparable.

Suppose I should start saving now. After I heard the Epiphany 20/21 in my room, I knew line source was in a different league than point source. Couldn’t balance the big LS 9’s in there though. Just too much bass for my room.

These should really be stunning. Time to sell the BG FS420’s.

Hi Captainhemo,

Those Line Force speakers look very interesting indeed! Could you please say a bit more about these?
* How far down in frequency are they working?
* Sensitivity?

Thanks! Best regards
Peter


Just letting  people  know that these are still in the works. been poking away at  a contoured base and discussing  composites.

These cross to the servo subs at 180Hz. And sensitivity is 98db.
