My Ikea Blanda Bowl Build Diary

Posted 6th April 2013 at 07:56 PM by mondogenerator

So upon seeing many nice Blanda bowl projects here on DIYAudio I thought it about time I had a try and see what all the fuss is about!

About a year or so past I went through a phase of buying the nicest small wide-band drivers I could. Whether I achieved this is subject to the readers' opinion

So I have a pair of Mark Audio Alpair 5, and a pair of Tangband W3-1285SG. Both of these drivers were available to me in the UK at a very similar price-point and they both fall roughly into the 3" wide-band category. (Shown in the following picture alongside some Tangband 2" drivers)

I chose to buy the 20cm Blanda bowls in bamboo. Gross volume works out at ~2 litres. Factor in stuffing or denser absorbent and I guesstimate a 1 litre volume.

This is really too small for the Alpairs, but the 2 dB rise towards the cut-off wasn't...
