 :D jello speaker seekers.  Does anyone know if the version with triple 165's powered version is in design stage of ready for rollout ?  Danny, I sent you a pm. This speaker seems a mini S7 of sorts. Love the servo bass,  but totally not needed at my age unless I won the lotto.  Budget, size , weight all factor in. Thanks for the mini.  :D

 :D hi Jay. Thanks ,, and I forgot the V design you crafted ,, you have 4, 165's OB each side ?  Is that right ?  And Danny is thinking of adding an amp each side  ?  This sounds fab....  Be in Kelowna next month.  :D

yes,   4 per channel and  they will be active ,  think Danny  has some ideas for an  amp for each channel.
Let me know when you're in town, maybe you  can  pop by for a  listen  if you  like

Looks really good Jay!  :D

Packing these up today  to get  down to Danny so  took some pics  when I  fitting up the  2nd  cabinet.

As with  most of our other  kits, bases have  contersunk screws in bottom to eliminate  the need for  really long clamps  and dowels on the top side to position the wings and  make assembly  very  easy.Bases were left  quite simple but there is room for the  builder to be creative if  one desired and still use the existing dowel/screw layout..  Or,   we can add a  roundover  to the existing base as I did in this case




Now the side panels can be perectly located onthe base via the insstalled dowels.   Each panel  has the two driver cutouts with 3/8" roundover on rear side, pre-drilled mounting screw holes,  the  4  dados for the  braceing as well as a top rebbet for the   top of the cabinet.




Next  comes the baffle.  the rear side  has  4 dados and  the upper  rabbet to match  the side panels.  There are also the 2 verticle 10 degree rabbets to mate up with the front edge of the side panels. Front side   has the  2 verticle  .5"  rouindovers




Time for some braces.  Each cabinet will have  four of these.All the inner  edges have been rounded over to help prevent defraction




The wrap around bracing leaves lots of room fo the  M165 drivers.


Finaly we have the inset cabinet  top which glues into the  rabbets cut  at top  of  side panels and baffle.






Each pair of  cabinets is mirrored so either woofers 1&3 or 2&4 can be placed to the center to keep things symetrical.

They look great Jay!  :D

How do they sound?  It looks almost like it's "semi-OB", instead of full on OB.  Do they still interact with the room the same way the H-Frame OB does?

Hi Jay: (maybe Danny and others would chime in also)
You've done amazing work on this flat pack!
What are it's advantages over a similar design using 3 M165's  side mounted? (2 one side & 1 on the other)
What are the advantages over front mounting 3-4 M165's in the same winged design?
I realize the front baffle would be wider and that wouldn't fit the profile of the Super Mini.
I'm assuming these are the M165-16 version.
Also curious as to the amplifier used.
Thanks for any and all responses.

The low wavelengths that they cover make it actually about the same as being front firing in the same wedge.

Four drivers offer a little more output capability and one more driver sharing the load.

The series parallel grouping also brings it back to an 8 ohm load.

The side mounting isn't much of an issue because of the lower ranges that these are restricted to. So the output should be about the same as if they were front mounted. And the front to back wave cancellation should be about the same.

Any decent plat amp could be used. I am also looking into having some made that will offer some good flexibility.

Will be teh  M165 08's in  series / parallel  setup as  Danny  stated  ( 2  series pairs,  each  pair wired to the  other  in parallel)

Won't be this week, I haven['t  sent the  cabinets yet  :(   they are boxed and ready to go,  I just   have been  a little side tracked
Will try  and get the labels  done today  and have them   picked up tomorrow

Yes, how do they sound? And how low do they go? And what is the projected or ballpark price with drivers and a suitable plate amp?

Very impressive work. Jay is a true craftsman.
