I finished my first skram some months ago, which was only a prototype and reference built for us.
The next 2 skrams shall be absolutely high end- not only in terms of it´s fantastic bass, but also in manufacturing. They will not be made of 18mm birch, but poplar. Due to the lower density and stiffness, we will overlay all the panels with carbon fabric and Epoxy. To get the side panels even stiffer, we will pre stress them (seen in the first picture) and overlay the stressed panel with carbon, when we press it flat again, the carbon on the outside of the skram should have enorm pre-tension. Due to this this pre-stress, we hope to reduce enclosure resonances to a minimum. (our tests look good so far, I will post them, if we have final results if one is interested.) We should be able to save 15-20kg+ and hopefully still have a resonance-dead Enclosure.
There will be also other crazy features like a transparent 25mm acryl glass front or detachables handles. As the brazings behind the front will be seeable, we want to re-design them, seen in the second picture. We removed material from the corners, as they should be stiff enough through. See you any problems concerning those brazings?
main question is about the enclosure size. I read somewhere in this Thread that it should be possible to make the skram a slimmer, but this would reduce the Output... Is it also possible to increase the witdh to gain some more output, but to hold all the other dimensions the same? How much gain could we expect (i.e. with +10cm), and would have the same tight bass?
I forgott to say hello to all, and to thank you, Josh, for all the work you have put into your designs and the all the work around them...
A friend I'm doing this project together with, posted some months ago ... We still don't know much about sound, but we learned a lot since summer haha
