Curved sub prototype progress

The pieces fit together in a jigsaw-like way. The final version will use a combination of hardwood and MDF. MDF for bracing internals and hardwood for all exposed outer surfaces. This is to make it more suitable for a high gloss painted finish.

60L 18" flat pack

This is a section through a 60L sealed box designed for 18" drivers. This one makes allowance for Acoustic Elegance TD18 which has a very large magnet. It will fit most 18" drivers. Designed for corner mounting at an angle, it is ideal as a bass module for Unity horns.

Curved sub - progress

This is the first run with CNC on a challenging project. The final sub will be machined with solid timber. I'm providing a design-only service in this case. This project has demonstrated how communication with the CNC machinist is required - understanding the process and how things work. The design originally led to elements which could not be done, so I had to modify the design in many ways. This probably won't be clear from the photos.
