  1. Or if you're of the "I don't need no stinkin' instructions -- I know what I'm doing" mindset. Maybe it's like people who salt their food before even tasting it -- force of habit. I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. Hanlon's Razor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanlon's_razor.
  2. I thought that backdrop looked familiar: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/183920-klipschorns-sw-of-st-louis/&do=findComment&comment=2384902 I need to get to know this guy.
  3. Bruce Edgar (no relation or affiliation) already did that experiment: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/177013-super-mwm/&do=findComment&comment=2403066
  4. For wave phenomena, "smooth" is defined relative to wavelength. In cases where the physical dimensions are smaller than approximately ¼-½ wavelength (like the interior of a Jubilee or Klipschorn at 40 Hz), the angles and bumps and protrusions are of no significance whatsoever because the sound waves don't even notice them. In cases where the dimensions are larger than approximately ¼-½ wavelength (like the interior of a Jubilee or Klipschorn at 400 Hz), use of corner reflectors is entirely appropriate and very effective. In fact, in the latter case, "smooth" curves can actually lead to path length differences and notches in the frequency response due to cancellation.

  8. I always did march to the beat of a different tuba.
  9. Am I the only one who actually prefers french fries that are frozen before being fried?
  10. I wish that I could find the article, but someone summed it up concisely in the past: All panels resonate. Some more than others, but they all resonate. For woofers, you want the enclosure walls to be as stiff as possible, so that their resonant frequencies are above the frequency range of the woofer. For midranges, you want the enclosure walls to be "floppy", so that their resonant frequencies are below the frequency range of the midrange. In all cases, you want them to be well-damped.
  11. The only direct comparison I've ever come across: http://www.tnt-audio.com/clinica/cabinet_walls_e.html
  12. With modern adhesives, the ability to hold a screw is really not relevant. One can build an enclosure without any screws whatsoever -- in fact, this is a superior technique because the adhesive does not distort the lumber like screws do.
  13. Perhaps you could have it converted to veneer, and use it on your Klipschorns or Jubilees. Search for "wood veneer cutting service". For example, these guys are in Ohio: https://mbveneer.com/product/veneer/ Or you could sell your boards and use the proceeds to buy a pair of Klipschorns or Jubilees. These guys are in Maine: https://www.rarewoodsusa.com/ http://www.maineheritagetimber.com/
  14. If you're anything like me, you'll end up dropping one of them while you're moving it to prevent it from being damaged.
