We  had an issue  getting   the paint color the customer  wanted.  In the end, he sent us up an actual paint chip so we've  now  got it color matched. Spraying should happen   very soon. We are now waiting for our painter as he recently had a  medical  procedure done.   Cabs have been sitting in his shop primed and waiting for a  while now......  soon !!

Totall :(y depends on wha  the customer  wants.
Our lacqar guy  is retty good but he is limited to  basic colors with a choice of shjeen but, no metallics  etc.

We also use a  guy who sprays exclusively  House of Kolor products but they add up fast  and  most  are  translucent so  multiple layers  are needed to get the desired deffect.
You probably saw these but here's a pic of  the  Super 7's  we recenly built, they are    done in House of Kolor  tangerine Kandy...  so  multiple layers of  primer/sealer  and block sanding , a base coat,  5 coats of  tangerine Kandy, then  2 coats of  the  HOK  Show Clear.  Material cost alone is up there but man,  the   paint is pretty  killer..


Wish pics  would show the depth.
  Lacqar guy did the  satin black bases.

Base coats done.   A quick  block sanding  before   final color coats and  clear.

Hey stupid question.. I am full of stupid questions....  :lol:

You know how the NX-Otica come in another model called the NX-treme where it adds more drivers up top... Does the Super LS come in a smaller model? Like say 2/3rds the drivers?

Is that a thing? doable? You'd get most of the bang for a lower cost and a physically smaller unit. That's my thinking at least.

That is about as short as it can be and still function as a line source.

Jay / Danny,

When you sell a set of these, do you include a set of padded shipping crates (or are those even a separate option)?

Given my space, I'm more than happy with my current speakers. However, it's easy to visit House of Kolor and dream / lust.

(Nevermind...this was answered earlier in this thread)

Haven't seen  them in person yet, only   some pics. These are  going to be in a  theater orom so they are top coated with   flat  lacqar to keep reflections down.,  Matching  Super7 monitor and a dual h-frame   for a center channel.







Note,  the customer will be lying the   dual h-frame on it's side to keep the  tweeter  down to ear level for those inthe   theater.   He also has a  pair of triple h-frames  to mate with the  Line forces  :thumb:

Jay,

 I just realized you don't have my address for shipping... I'll PM you  :lol:

Kidding of course... Those look amazing.. can't wait to hear your report on them



Serious question: are you at all worried about them toppling over with accidental brushes/bumps? Or do they need a pretty strong smack to fall over?

Thanks   guys.  Anxious  to get them to the  customer !
No, they won't topple over, the base is  pretty wide, kind of deceiving.

A couple  more  pics
