Impressive indeed! Pics of backs?

Interesting!

I MAY to this! First thing, I want two functioning H1s! :-)

3/4 ply or MDF? I know YOU used MDF, would 3/4 Ply be better?

I’ll get a pic tomorrow. 

I actually added the 3/4” MDF onto the existing 1/2” plywood back, so 1-1/4” total.

My cabs were pretty trashed when I got them and the back pieces were added 16 years ago when I had a tiny apartment in Orlando. 

 

If if I were to build some new heresy cabs I think I’d go at least 1” Baltic birch all the way around.

I have some 74 heresys, And every time I have taken the backs off I wondered about this. The cornwall 1s I had the backs seemed a lot more thick, and sturdy.

I remember hearing years ago about how important the rigidity of speaker cabinets should be to securely hold IN PLACE the Drivers so they can DO THEIR JOB on THE ARE which they set into vibration! That's why in 1979 I chose 3/4 Particle Board to build my home made speaker cabinets from! Heavy but STURDY!
