New Duet10R getting built with RAAL OEM

Post  Clearwave on Sat Jun 12, 2010 12:15 pm

The drivers are the RAAL OEM, Accuton C173-T6-090, and Seas Nextel W26 10" woofer in a curly maple and large faceted cabinet. I'll post some pictures when my high end cabinet maker gets the veneer on in the coming weeks.

No finish on these speakers yet so you guys are just going to have to wait a few more weeks to see the grain really pop!

Here's the test strip that shows the grain and glossy lacquer finish.

Several coats of lacquer applied with a gun and buffed to get the nice sheen you see here. It's a very time consuming process but it looks really high quality and it's great to the touch. Smooth as silk.

Several coats of lacquer later, but awaiting the final rub down to get the finish perfect:

Those are gorgeous! Very high end look. I imagine the sound will be high end as well, with those drivers and a CLD designed network. One very lucky customer.
