    Here is the link to a few pictures of my latest creation.
    It is a single shiva ported with a single 4" flared vent. Powered by Adire's AVA250 plate amp. It is more or less an EBS alignment.
    I built ths for my Father to replace his cheesey Mirage 10"er that was trying to fill a huge open space.
    It is constructed of all 3/4"MDF with extensive internal bracing as you will see. The interior walls were lined with 1+1/2" convoluted foam but no other stuffing.
    The exterior is paper backed Oak veneer we stained to match some of the wood in his room. I will post some pictures of it in it's home shortly.
    I had a chance to break it in and listen to it for a week before he came and got it...It sounded very impressive! Very clean and low bass.

    Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I am comfortable with that. I am enlightened.
