Book shelf speakers for SE tube.
 
Hi,

Does anyone have any ideas to build a pair of book shelf or small speakers that perform at audiophile level with SE tube amp 9W output 8 Ohm?

Not sure if open or closed is best, close to a wall less than 12 inches distance.

Or is it easier to buy something like klipsch?

Regards

Plenty of proven designs out there.

Some pertinent questions......
-Listening preferences
-room size
-budget
-building skill level/available tools
-what you define as small

As for klipsch.......I've not been too impressed with anything but their more expensive fare.

I was thinking a size front 7 inch across by 10-12 inch high.

I have a feeling this size is a problem perhaps I should have said compact.

I have about 8-9 Watt of power. 2X EL34.

The Mark audio looks interesting.

Small room study 13X13 foot.

My hand skills are quite good.
I Listen to all types of music from femail vocal to jazz some rock.

Any ideas of cabinet?

Just dipping a toe in the water first build. Always bought speakers in the past!

If the size is unrealistic,

please give me some ideas of minimum size I would need to go for and I can have a re-think.

As I said first build!

Looking at my sizes could you give any ideas of a cabinet build and what size front I would need to build. I used to like the look of the old tannoy six's similar in shape to your photos.

Dimensions will vary somewhat based on the build material thickness.

Dave,

The front width is a problem. Depth is not important. If I used front porting and a standard shape what is the minimum width I could go to? 7.5 inches is my max available. I understand that the volume is important. Could I have the angle at the top or bottom + port? Please excuse my ignorance.

The Classic Golden Ratio version of that box is 6 3/4 W X 14 1/2 H x 10 1/4 D (15mm material). Those plans are the freebies...planet_10 hifi

And with the purchase of the plan-set, i can juggle things for a custom box, but it sounds like the above would do.
