Very cool Jay! Is there a technical reason the base needs to add that height?

Thanks,

They do lift  the array up a  bit but not as much  as  you  may think.. those bases are only 5.5 "  tall..
Was really  just  trying to  keep them similarin  height to the  orignal pair but   "fit"  the   speaker  cabinet  a bit  better  IMHO  .     Each will  have to  be milled from a  solid  block of   composite.

Why not a simple T outrigger, and some spikes?

Jay:
If you are concerned with baffle stiffness why not double up the thickness with a baffle sandwich.
Add a front panel, mirror image of your current design (minus the terminal cut outs) would leave a nice clean finished look.
Rubber sheet gasket in between the two layers and you may not need the slight driver recess.
Choose the gasket material correctly and you may not even need the 100 driver mounting screws. 
Twenty bolts from the backside  should hold the panels together and keep the that nice clean look.

Yes, it'll be a  combination effort.  We'll finish the  cabinets up here and ship down to  Danny for final asembly before   heading out to their  new  home .

Great to hear they're still moving forward. You mentioned "Composite" in the original post. Any decisions or details?

Yes, they will be a  composite, similar in density to  MDF (approx 75gr/cc). 
I sent  Danny  a sample Neo3/Neo10 baffle made  from a similar (not quite as dense)  product.


    Excellent machineability
    Low dust emission
    No shrinkage / Dimensionally Stable
    Low moisture absorption
    No grain
    Excellent surface finish

Does this mean that the Line Force will not be sold as a DIY project but only as a complete speaker?

Thanks,
Ed

hey Ed
No,  I think we'll offer the flat packs as well.  the composite is expensive as is machining those  bases... not to mention building  custom boxes/crates  for   each pair.   Still chaaper than the   aluminum  pair  Danny originally  had  cut.
Waiting onthe composite   for the first pair to be cut.. hopefully  soon

This is pretty exciting news.  I'm one of the lucky few that got to hear those original prototypes, and holy momma are they incredible.  I thought that the Serenity 7's had a slight edge on my LS9's years ago, but the with those all BG drivers in the prototype there was really no comparison.  The were just sooooo fast.  And they were helped along by a gaggle of servo subs.

Thanks Jay.  I am toying with the idea of going with the Super-7 then possibly upgrading to the LF, but reusing the drivers purchased for the Super-7.

Best,
Ed

Yup,  composite is in for  the  first pair  as wellas some stock for a  2nd pair,  hopefully cutting that  first pair     next  week .
I know it's ben slow but the compostie took longer  than expected  to  arrive.   hopefully things progress quickly  now
