Haha, you're OCD like me, otherwise I would have skipped the matching veneer. You'd be surprised how reasonable his rates are and the new Triton kits are going to be incredible.

Veneer is on! I talked to Al over the weekend and the speaker is now at the cabinet maker's for sanding/finishing. I am extremely excited!!!

Wow those look killer. Great setup. Is that an OB subwoofer system?
No the Apex C is a twin slot ported design tuned to just below 30HZ...

Find some more info here

Ya I have been out for a few years but been busy for the last few years designing for several companies.
A lot for CSS with 10 more designs coming for CSS.As I do not have my shop anylonger it is a lot of work for me to build one off projects.I did this Apex C in the same veneer to match the Lambda arrays I did for CSS years which we took to RMAF 2004 with Dan Wiggins..

Frequency response from 0 to 40 off axis horizontally.

These Apex C ranged from 1600.00 up depending on the veneer as well as crossover components.

Looks pretty awesome down to 50hz.

I would have loved to have chatted with Dan Wiggins. Jealous of you there.

Thanks ya in room as you can see not too bad

Dan Wiggins yes I spent many days driving down to spend even 2hrs with Dan learning Praxis how to use and do acoustic measurements then also LSPCAD Pro.Dan was someone who I could spend a lot of time with and he was more than generous to show me whatever i wanted to learn.

Nothing like driving across the border driving to Lynnwood (2hr drive including clearing customs) to spend 2 or 3hrs with him some times 2 times a week.

Man well over 10yrs ago now..

Just noticed you said Triton no correction the new kits are CRITON 1 and Criton 2 each using a pair of the LDW7 woofers in a sealed cabinet tuned to 57hz.And the MLTL plans are just finishing which will put them down in the low 30hz range easy.

Ha, thanks for catching that, major typo on my part.

Very nice. Have never had a chance to work with a nice line array.

Enjoy!
