most of it... I had drawn the drivers the other day.. did the rest last night.. here's Bobs reply to the photos I sent him last night...

"Oh Man! These are stunning! I definitely get it. Can you make a drawing of the whole thing, a pair, eight feet tall or whatever we chose the height to be? That would be so cool to look at.

Bob"


So today, I'll try to get a full pair done.

Yeah, but once folks hear what he has to say about the "40' tall speaker" that eliminates the floor and ceiling reflections and they see it? Holy Moly!

THEN they get to hear it. Tell Bob to get on the ball! I'll be ready to tweak and offer my observations with the both of you whenever they are set up. Well, you knew that to begin with.........

Let's get the ball on the roll man!!!!! \:D/ I want to hear these puppies! Bob's genius ain't done yet. I'd like to see it before it gets to be too late. ;)

I'm at Bob's mercy... waiting on him at this point. Everything is ready to go. The extruders are waiting for me to give them go-ahead.

Our New Line Source Speakers

Post by Toy Maker » Sat Jan 30, 2010 3:47 am

I thought I would post a little something about one of the projects Bob and I are working on.
It's been in the works for about a year and a half, and is finally coming together.
Bob and I have put in hundreds of hours so far, and I can't wait to hear our hard work.

This video has been public of a little while now, so there should be no huge surprise... but maybe a little peek won't hurt :-$



and now the real fun begins....

Waiting for the drivers to come in... They are on order, but I think they are coming direct from China... and they are going on there 2-week "New Years" holliday vacation soon... The whole country shuts down for 2 weeks a year.
I expect to have a couple sets built and finished within a month or two.
Bob and I are planning on bringing them the CarverFest this year, along with the new Silver-7 Tube amps we are working on. Should be alot of fun !!!
