DIY speakers


#1

I hope this is the right place to post a DIY speaker project. Most posts seem to be electronics. Anyway, here’s a design I made recently. The sides are 16ga stainless hand formed in my English wheel. The front and back are mdf, and the top is sycamore. The tweeter is an AMT from Parts Express, and the woofer is 8" carbon fiber from a different source. They are crossed over at 4Khz by simple 12db/octave passive network. I know people shudder at the thought of metal speakers, but rest assured the insides are thoroughly braced and deadened. The sound really good, even thought the tweeter is fairly directional.

Thanks. BTW. I see some of you are answering via email and that’s great but then our signature are included. You can avoid that by placing — "-- " (two dashes followed by a white-space character) on a line by itself before your signature.
