LCR600 in with mm to spare! ... hole waiting for Sub (B&W ASW675) or a plant
LCR 600 mate!
Looks damn good though.
oops! cheers for the heads up Rick!
BTW peeps this was a design inspired by ReTrO
Are you thinking of doing anything to the edges?
I have a bit of work to do on it still, needs a bit of sanding and a coat of polish etc, may look at silver edges to match the rack, but got to get the RTP 15 sorted first.
me wants your rack, please sell me your rack :kisses:
Wow Taz t5hat is good stuff and alot tidier than the last time i saw a piccy of your front room!
PS some modding needs doing in Gaming Classifieds when you've finished your DIY.
Very nice mate
What material did you use ?
Its 18mm MDF veneered with anegre the panels are lipped with koto.
You couldn't afford it
funnily enough the girls in soho said that too, prolly right though
very nice peice of kit
Thanks mate, made by myself and ReTrO
Taz - May sound like a stupid question but is it not a bit flimsy?
Only ask as I built a desk very similar in design and you could blow on it, and watch it sway from side to side.
Although mine was a bodge it and leg it job, yours looks a lot more proffesional.
Flimsy it aint Shoka, to test it I climbed on top of it and jumped up and down and it didnt move at all, the back panel of the sub enclosure us doweld all round to prvent any movement in the top sections we worked out that even if the back panel had been 4mm ply it still would have taken the weight of the TV!
anyway, Mick is pictured stood on it and he weighs the same as a cadillac!
Taz ... your old TV rack ... is that one of them wire jobbies from Argos??
How much for the sub woofer, I like em a little bigger myself
Not sure if I read the thread correctly, if you made the equipment rack as well, what is the silver edging, paint... veneer or metal?
Yes I made the rack myself, the edging is sold wood sanded untill very smooth, then I applied silver guilt cream as used on picture frames. The whole effect was to match the light wood and silver of my B&W's.

Yes mate it was / is
Taz, just asking- could you build me a large cab?
Say 1.5M high, 55cm wide, 50cm deep. How much would you charge? It'll need to be strong, hold about ~100KG.
I could, but posting it would be a nightmare! what you wanna use it for? PM me details so as not to throw this post off topic
