Default My Sachikos

Just wanted to share my new speakers and say thanks to the community. This is my second pair of full range speakers. The first pair were supposed to be a build of Zilla's 3 cu ft slotted boxes with the Bofu speakers. I messed up and built the boxes too big, but they were still the best speakers I had heard.

I then bought a pair of Fe206's and put them in the existing boxes while waiting to build the next set of speakers. It took a long time, but I finally finished them. I was amazed that the fostex speakers sound balanced now a opposed to bright.

They are everything I hoped for sound wise thanks to you guys and visually thanks to my wife who put tons of work in on them.

I saw a post recently about whether the big boxes were really worth it. I say a resounding yes! I do want to build some open baffles one day too though.

Thanks again to everyone who developed the plan and participated in the project by building them or discussing them etc.

-Andy

Congrats on the beautiful build. You can expect them to sound even better as the drivers get more hours on them!

Great build, Andy. They dwarf you
I went with a dark polish on mine, but your finish looks nicer.
