Very nice...! Excellent execution, sharp corners, grain match...the whole shabang...!
Nickp--Thank you for noticing the time I spent on details like the grain match!
Very nice work , and probably one of my favourite subjects. I’m not seeing what your using for drivers ?
RainMan--I built them from a kit designed by Paul Carmody, it uses a Tymphany, BC25TG15-05 Tweeter and Dayton, DC160, 6.5″ Classic Woofer. The kit can be purchased at Meniscus Audio
and it is very reasonably priced.
Looks like an excellent build and fun project. Especially like the speaker stands, very generic
They appear to be completely sealed using biscuit joints. There's no access to the inside or am I missing something?
sreilly--The speaker 'stands' I think you are referring to are the plastic buckets I used just for testing them in my den, nice catch!
They use K&M wall mounts, the black piece on the back is only half the mount, the other half attaches to the wall, very solid! The only access inside the cabinet is through the woofer cut out, it should be plenty of room if I needed to get in there and fix something. The biscuits helped me get the edges lined up with very little sanding required, very strong joints too!
Those look really nice, Gavin! How do they sound - are you pleased?
difalkner--Yes, I am very pleased with the sound and I am very particular about my audio gear. They are a perfect fit in the application I am using them for, my shop space! Now it is even more fun to spend time out there tinkering on stuff.
I appreciate all the 'likes' and kind comments, I had to overcome some obstacles to get these to turn out as well as they did. I learned a lot and hope to build a more expensive pair of speakers some day.
