-- a new-to-me thing.
It's very, very dense.
Very.
Dense.


Here is a bottom view.

Further details as events warrant.
It'll be a while -- this is a project*.

    Verily.

    :)

    (I need to post an "in use" DAC photo -- it's been a little nutty 'round the ol' Hardy household latterly)

    Best Guess...

    http://sica.it/en/products.html?page=shop.browse&category_id=8&parentCategory=1

    Last one listed, the 8 inch version. Or possibly 10 inch.
  • mhardy6647mhardy6647 Posts: 13,889
    bigger.
    and there are two of them.
    in one box.

    one very dense box.

    Dual 12 inch coaxes in one box? Cripes...I was thinkin ten inch at most...but a dozen inches....sweet! (Apologies, I like a bit of detective work!)

    First!
    (in line to buy the Doc Hardy speakers) :D

    Hmmm...it's a speaker....screwed to a piece of pine....with a DENSE 10lb rock on it for stabilization.

    What is lemon zester!

    Butt shakers for the front porch swing? Tractor speakers? Brown sound generator?

    Bigger. :)

    Based on appearances, I would think this thing is brown-note-compliant.
    Oh, and mrbiron, it is (to the best of my knowledge) 100% rock free.

    it not a rock on it, it is ;) a certain phono amp

    Much work remains to be done -- right now, we're looking at two beefy 15" dual VC drivers mounted in an -- interesting -- configuration in a massive MDF prototype box.

    ... but the thing certainly looks purposeful; I have to think it will be good for something, audio-wise.

    Looks like bottom woofer is slot loaded with the floor or a bottom panel?
  • mhardy6647mhardy6647 Posts: 13,889
    The bottom woofer fires "up" into the sealed enclosure (it's back side hangs out in the breeze, as the photo shows, albeit none too clearly).

    The other woofer fires "out" of the front of the enclosure. You'll have to take my word for now; it's too danged heavy to drag out of its current (temporary) resting place :)

    So then its push pull with bottom woofer slot loaded.Should dig deep.
