Kind of an Icon

Damn, I wish you were near me - I could hire you to build some MCM Big Red cabinets for my 604E's. :)
That would be a bad idea; this means I would end up wanting to build a set of cabinets like those for myself!:D I honestly thought pretty hard about it because initially I didn’t like the idea of having a separate sub woofer. (Don’t ask me why I am building a set of stereo subwoofers).
Oh, if you know someone with a push pull 6v6 push/pull amp please give it a try before considering subwoofers. My HK A300 floored me!

Dry fitted the pieces and quite happy with what I am seeing. A little finessing is in order to tighten up the miters, which will help reduce clamp usage. Worked on book matching the panels also (had cut them with the intent to veneer them initially). 0D57C396-FBE5-489A-B945-FD5553EF3211.jpeg

Looking awesome. Are you doing custom dims/volume? Or pretty stock 612 cabinet size?

I stayed fairly close to the original iconic specs but there is slight variation in original build cabinets. Depending on how these sit horn height, I may add a skirt or legs...

Small update; I finally scored a decent priced set of 416‘s (Z’s actually which are more efficient than later versions) and they are on their way to Bill. The next update will be glued up cabinets.
I am considering making wood horns in place of the 3D print ones, more to come.

This will be an exciting fedex/ups week; half of the crossover bits arrived today, the rest will ship from Canada tomorrow and the 416Z’s should arrive from GPA Thursday. Pretty stoked!

Chipped away on the project some more; glued up the other box walls and a face on the other. Will see if I can sneak in more time this weekend.
How are these going, any progress to report? What crossover are you using? I have a friend doing the same but with my old 414zs
