Excellent work, I've always liked Sun Ray shapes, I think they are timeless. I assume you have enough space behind for cone excursion.

Big thanks tony,

yes sun-rays is a nice design from/simlair to the victor loudspeaker,

oh shit excursion slipped my mind for a mo , not sure on x/o yet maybe around 130-150 so not much excursion at that frequency range?

just thinking now how am i gonna do that now, maybe a ring baffle from the inside?

any idea tony?

big thanks..

Depends drivers and amps you use.
 
My 15s below (and all the others boxes in my valve rig), use a ring inside, recessed to clear the mesh.

I think you have already got the answer, but to make sure, you could do another loose baffle inside. Including the speaker gasket, depending on whether it's hard or squashy, I would say a 12mm sub baffle will get you out of trouble. It's true, above 100hz you are hardly likely to get any excursion, but it will depend on what sort of safeguards you have in place, i.e. crossover points, whether a bass cable can accidentally be plugged in etc. Not a major problem at this stage.

Looking at these shapes reminds me of a shape I did for some Amp Racks years ago. It was done so that the lids could be kept on while in operation. These shapes would be for ventilation. It was the shape used to depict a Nuclear Device. I Think this would be a great pattern to have on the front of a bass cab.

These look top!

Look forward to seeing the finished product.

Seen a few of these style of rigs cropping up. Either people are going for them again or they've just came to my attention


Look awesome but don't fancy moving them!
