Ladies & Gentlemen - The Emken

With thanks to Dave (Planet10) I present the Emken. The biggest mini-Onken using the Eminence 12LTA

I'll post more pix later that I remembered to take during the build. They use a FT17H helper and sound, in a word, AMAZING. For detail and accuracy they are headphone like

:cool:

p.s. I must notice that it sounds a bit like an oxymoron " The biggest mini...". Anyway looks like something which is going to provide the sound of mini-monitors, but which could go loud enough that you never miss a bigger speaker. By the way, did you implement any notch filter? Does it have a nasal quality to the sound? How low does it go?

Thanx

I think you can drop the "mini" - just not on your foot

Sick! Just SICK! looks really cool. what kind of cabinet treatment is planned, veneer? Fleckstone? Asphalt driveway paint?

Oh yeah the top and bottom vents are open? Unfinished perhaps?

Hehe yeah its not mini for sure. Its driven straight from a hifimediy 2050 via cat5 cable, no filter. The FT17H has a silver foil 1uF or 1.5uF to taste. No nasality that I notice. I have a wooden phase plug that really smooths things out.

I'm a massive fan of the big driver sound. These go plenty low (i need a cable to test an iPhone freq generator app i have). I had to get used to the bass as at first i thought it was light, but having listened longer I find it is in fact very accurate rather than boomy or weighted in the lower regions

I think he meant it looked like tops / bottoms weren't on yet, hence "unfinished" = not fully buttoned up ?

Godzilla 7th March 2012 07:25 PM

Neato! I'm curious to see pics of the finished speaker.
