Hi,
Anybody know where I can get a set of nice detailed Model 19 cabinet plans for a do it yourself project? I found some nice plans for the Altec A7s and some barely legible plans for the 19s which were nowhere near acceptable.

I plan on asking my stepson who has every tool imaginable to make them for a Christmas present and then I will fill them up with GPA drivers and crossovers. Which leads to my next question: What would it cost (ballpark) for the GPA drivers and crossovers. I don't want to call and bother them for what still is a dream project.

Gow about this:

Of course I would make the foot rails from solid 2"x2", include face diffraction foam for the 811 horns, put them on HD carpet rollers, upgrade the networks to the Zilch types, etc. THEN you will have a properly upgraded set of 19's to really crow about!!

The first link was the same plans I found. The second link was 404 file error.
I haven't ever heard these and would like to hear a set in my house, not somebody else's.:music:

Below is a simplfied version of the 19, This is the one I am thinking of building. I just not so sure I like the regular 19 cabinet.

What is worth noting here is raw 4' x 8' plywood sheet layouts and amount of material required...

Here is an older thread with some pics of other's efforts:http://www.audiokarma.org/forums/showthread.php?t=125547&page=4

Perchdog, did you do the drawings and the cutlist? I'm looking for a cutlist program that does what I want it to do and is simple. The one I have is too complex.

I'm going to post a build thread of a cabinet that uses the Model 19 woofer, 416-8b. The enclosure is an MLTL that is considerably bigger than the original cab. This will be an effort to raise the woofer to an elevation that fits my listening space and to gain bass presentation. I have one project that needs to be nudged before I launch on the new speaker cabs. The birch plywood is staring at me :D

Hi Westend,
No actually this plan was forwarded to me by another AK member.. I am not quite sure where it origanated.

I would be interested in seeing your design, I am actuatlly on the fence about the 19 build since I have obtained a 604C. Even though I have a new pair of GPA 416's and a new set of 811's, I just like the idea of the 604's instead. The thing about the 604 is I think it needs to raised as well.
