Just in case anyone is in or around San Antonio, TX this Sunday December 20th, I'm having a day of music, food and fun with fellow audio enthusiasts. If you need directions to the new house, shoot me an email wardsweb@yahoo.com

How about a pair of Odyssey's? John Prator has them in Austin. As far as I know they aren't for sale, but I suppose if he ever gets his LS-9 line arrays they might be.

They would be an option. I have been to John's and heard them. They are nice.

Thanks for the offer, but I'm holding out for the Prodigy's

Yes, I'm in the market to buy a pair of Marting Logan Prodigy speakers. Let me know if you have a pair or know someone who does. If they are in Texas, I will even pick them up in person and give them cash.

I turned some 3"x2" 6061 billet aluminum feet for them.

Here they are with three coats of DEFT lacquer on. More to go but they're already looking pretty good.

Years later I finally pulled the drivers out so I could veneer them. They look nicer being the focal point of my living room.

Added JBL 2235H woofers, Altec 802-8G drivers mounted to Altec 511B horns and JBL 077 slot tweeters. Used some perf metal covered with JBL blue grill cloth and they become speakers. Just in a raw state.

I filled the kerf with some glass microbeads and spray the interior with rubberized automotive undercoating and add fiberglass batting. These cabinets are DEAD!

This all started around Jan 2006. My DIY Brazilian rosewood JBL corner horns were nice but just didn't have the high end sparkle that I wanted. This after my custom Altec A7 Voice of the Theatre didn't were not that great at near field. Imagine that a speaker with a 15 foot bass fold not working well in my living room. So on to a new design.

Baltic birch and MDF with CNC bracing and kerf MDF sides.

what are the cabinet measurements? I've got some rosewood and cocobolo here.

Like most things, it all depends... If the speaker is in decent shape you can just veneer over the top of the original. If it is somewhat rough, it will require some time to level out or repair. Ths could even require stripping the old veneer off and then sanding smooth. All in all, it isn't really hard, just time consuming.

My big horns are being done in sapele pommele. My last project (JBL corner horns) I did in Brazilian rosewood. I like exotic woods. They just have more visual impact for me.

I'll be in Austin - ya'll have fun and send a couple pics this way.

Yes the site has fallen by the wayside. I'm in the process of finally veneering my horns after three years. Also remodeling the new house and building an electric Porsche 914. As always, there aren't enough hours in the day.
