That is just awesome, I have dreamed a long time about building my own full rangers. I realize this is a recone and not a build from scratch but those photos are like candy!

Very nice!

I have heard a few people at my place have tried to reconstruct FR drivers with old FR baskets that had Alnico magnets... no idea though if they were successful or not...

I'll assume the author's original words were something along: My wife yelled from across the house, "Turn that damn thing down, would ya?"

Is that a wooden cone material he used?

Hi there T: The title and article states the cones are "Katagami tanned paper", (although in the picture, they look look like wood finish), the voice coil former is "hand buffed kouzo Japanese paper". Could this be a translation situation? Certinly has a wow factor. ...regards, Michael (Michael added; katagami is Japanese art for adding stenciles to paper using organic dye)
