Here's a photo of my latest build FH3 speakers:

These are finished in a light stained American Cherry veneer and have the new Mark Audio Alpair7 gen3 drivers installed.

I must say these gen3 drivers are a step up in performance from the gen2 drivers I have in my Ash veneered FH3 speakers. They can be alikened to the Dr Who 'Tardis' in that the sound and performance from this combination belies their size.

Hi Guys,

I am currently building a set of these by hand, but a friend of mine wants to get a pair machined up for him. Is it possible to get a copy of the CAD models to give to the CNC techs?

Cheers,
Derek

Ah lads, I've had a bad night.

I done the rebates and had the drivers sitting flush (one little mistake on one side, but nothing that couldn't be sorted out)....... then one of the drivers which I had just put down over balanced and fell!!

Damage was a good dent and a tiny tear in the dustcap and a much smaller slight mark on the driver. GRRRRRRR


I'm absolutely raging!! Can't believe I did that. Now on the upside I can detect no change (by ear) of any sonic penalty, but looks terrible. Anyway, they've more than completed the first stage of burn in at very low volume. They're back on again at a little higher volume until tomorrow night.

GRRR, double GRRRRRR and treble GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

eMail me with detail of the file format the CNC guys need (DXF/DWG/native vectorworks and the version they can deal with).

Note that the only parts that benefit from a typical 3-axis CNC are the sides and the rebate on the baffle. All the other pieces have to go thru a table saw even if CNCed. By the time those panels were even programmed in, they could be stacked & finished by the guy with the table saw

Cut sheets in the plans would need adjustment to allow for the larger kerf required by a CNC.

Fran,

I feel your pain. I've lost 3 A7. A range of others.

When it comes to good looking builds, Colin Topps is always up there. Very nice looking pair!

Fran,

Sorry to hear about the accident. If it plays fine then maybe you can put a grille in front and hide the cosmetic damage.

Toppsy,

Drop dead gorgeous dolls they are. How can I duplicate those sexy pumps for my girls?
