Last night I attempted to build some MDF woofer enclosures and it was a huge fail. Today I swore I'm finished with wooden boxes so I started from scratch and designed a 3/16" thick lasercut steel enclosure that's loaded with bracing. Each one will be 20" deep, 16-1/4" wide and 13" tall, the front and back edges will be curved and the sides will be clad in strips of hardwood similar to how Solus Faber does it.

Apologies if the photos are hard to understand, it's mush easier when you're the one who designed it when working in 2D drawings.

Had a good amplifier haul today from my amp tech, fully re-cap'd Marantz 2230 and a pair of SAE A201 power amps.

SAE makes a great rock and roll amp, lots of snap and punch, it's not quite as nice to listen to as my JR Model 1 though. It seems perfectly happy hooked right up to the transformers though.
