The IBM Q

 

The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is a photo of the interior of a Cray 2, as it was when I worked with Lawrence Livermore Labs in 1986.

That must have been a very interesting place to work.

Nice idea to moisturize, great looking work as usual.

 

Thanks. Each project gives me a little more experience, so I continue learning and improving.

Using some General Finishes brand Seal-A-Cell and Arm-R-Seal Semi-Gloss here. Each different brand has its own effect, so I try something new each time.

The material from the woofer cut-outs was used to line the port holes.

I was just a lowly graduate student, so I never got to work on the "interesting" stuff. I just wrote programs that they ran on the Cray 2 using their data (that I was never allowed to see), and they told me whether it worked or not.

 

Nowadays that Cray 2 is easily outperformed by a PC ... or even a telephone.

And yet the basic horn loudspeaker is still fundamentally sound.

Paul Klipsch was a genius.

Freshly rotated woofers are ready for more good vibrations. The General Finishes Arm-R-Seal gives the woodgrain a nice look. I might veneer the entire exterior of all these cabinets some day, but the 36"x48" front of the large boxes is the most visible exposed part, so it is just the pretty faces for now.

Thanks. I am saving some special veneers for the day I might have some Jubilees.

I know you know this---you're darn close with the 415s. In fact some prefer them.

Yes, but some Rosewood Jubilees would be really pretty.

I wanted the center cabinet on its side with the lower profile, but the design of the internal braces/baffles kept me from relocating the reflex port. So now I will adjust the width of the treble cabinet.

Ok, I'm a dummy, do the ports have to be on the floor? Or you just want them there for aesthetics.

I would have relocated one of the ports for the visual symmetry, but I also think these ports were designed to be on the floor for boundary gain.
