Default Francesco Campedelli T-Line

I got bored one night and made a Google Sketchup model of Francesco Campedelli's TiLine for HIVI's B3S and BSN. I myself will be using the Aurasound NS3-193-4A. Hope this helps someone!

I'll be moving to Puerto Rico in a couple of days, so when the smoke clears I'll start the build project and document the whole thing. Hopefully I can post it all soon. I'll be using 1/2" MDF, 2xAurasound NS3-193-4A 3" Extended Range * 4 ohm * Silver Cone, and a set of gold plated binding posts. (Nothing fancy)

It will be part of my desktop sound system which includes:
-Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro USB Audio System with THX SB1095
-FiiO D3 Digital to Analog Audio Converter - 192kHz/24bit Optical and Coaxial DAC
-4x100W @ 4 Ohm TK2050 Class-D Audio Amplifier Board

I added a cut-list to the sketch-up file. It's a work in progress. The panel is .5" MDF (for me). I will also add a photo of the parts numbered.

Finally got my prototype boxes built. I wanted to perfect the methods of it's assembly and tweek it's construction. When I got to Puerto Rico, I found out (quickly) that quality wood products are hard to come by. So...I bought some half inch ply(really garbage quality) and began my build. LOTS OF CLAMPING! The wood was warped badly, so I had to compensate for that. Well, they're done. I'm very happy with the sound. Incredible. Even with plenty of "BOO BOOs....I managed to get them to sound great. I'll post picks when I can but, I think I am very satisfied with these little gems! Ugly as sin right now but, I think i can fix that. For now....music plays through them without me feeling fatigued. Warm, I would say. Looking forward to getting back to the states so I can re-do them, more precisely and with better better quality wood. This build has taught me a lot. Now to put that experience to practice!

Thank You Francesco Campedelli, for such a wonderful and simple design!

It looks like a good desktop solution for a 3 inch. I wonder about that fatigue thing though. While it might seem like a good idea to have the driver at ear height, a design by Zaph that I made for the Tangband years ago similar to this was, how to say, too close for comfort.

I had some small stands and did a lot of repositioning to get a bit of soundstage.

I hope others do this build and report in as well.
