To Chrisb,

Neither, we have a store over here for secondhand stuf.
The supra-baffle's are beertray's , made from pressed wood , 25 cent a piece.
Most of the time I work backward, meaning ; I see a lot of things on this forum that I wanna try. Looking at stores I see things that are to be used for another purpose.
That brings me to ideas and then I adjust(size and recalculate) the original design.
For instance I replicated MJK's open baffle design after seeing pieces of an old bed.
They didn't have the right size, so I read Martin's article carefully and deceided to adjust the x-over components 10%.
They sounded terrific (=good).
Measured them with an old digital system called DAAS(german).
And this was according the theorie.
Sorry for the bad English, I do hope you understand my explanation.

Or an IKEA bamboe pot , the hole(backside) had the right dimensions for a tube.
87mm foster unit(about fe83 foster) mounted in the bottom.
The conical "horns" , found them in the secondhandstore ;
50 cents each , simulate them in hornresp.
Are going to be fronthorns for lowther, filling in nice the acoustical hole ~250-1000Hz.

point taken about the name change, but the point is I used the brynn as somewhere to start and the general dimensions are close. I also used fostex FE126E's. The wharfedales are only useful as firewood in my opinion so hacking them about and seeing how they came out was not much of a gamble as the FE126E's are probably destined for some frugal horns.

Leon - to answer a related question on another thread regarding use of inverted salad bowls for supra-baffles, how did you to about attaching the trays to the main enclosures, and filling/sealing the resulting void cavity?

and don't worry - your English is much better than my Netherlandian would be

It's a nice size and shape. Up against the wall should support bass even further. Has anyone built a pair?

Yes I built a pair....... love 'em....pete

Completed Brynn's.

I had a listen a few months ago before they were oiled up and was uninspired to finish them as I'm not madly keen on the Fostex (127e) sound, preferring CSS FR125 in 12.5L BR cabinets.

They were a little nicer than when they were in a 13L BR with 2dB BSC but I think I just find the CSS a nicer all rounder (SPL's not withstanding).

I'll bring them in tomorrow and give them another run. It is a lovely looking cabinet shape though, and if you like Fostex then likely well worth the effort.

I agree, I also have some bass reflex front ported speakers with CSS fr125's that were my first build and I am about to build another pair for use with the tv.
