Not a bad idea at all. David Berriman designed a DIY speaker for Hi-Fi News some time in the 1990s which took this approach. He had a straightforward circular cutout for the Volt driver and then had a thin sheet of MDF or ply cut to the shape of the driver frame. He suggested covering this with leather material, wrapped round the back, before fitting to the baffle.

A bit old-school but it looked smart enough in the photos, once the restof the cabinet was veneered.
You're spot on Colin. That must be the source of my theft (ahem) or inspiration. Ned Ludd wishes to point out this can be done with a knife and does not need a machine.

Cheers Steve

That'll teach me to rely on the tablets auto correct. That should have read redo the crossover and built instead of build.

Dave B. Did have the driver custom made for the DB6, I do not know by who, but it could have been volt. They measure rather nicely, very smooth as you'd expect for poly and low distortion too.

I wondered if you would be able to do me a favour? Would you be able to see how both the Jordan EIKONA and the EAD E100HD may model in this cabinet?

Sorta.

Click the image to open in full size.

The most interesting number on the spec sheet is the Qm... this could be a candidate for current amp use.

And there has to be typo in the inductance. 141 H??

The price is a bit scary too... $522 USD at today's exchange. That is, i think, more than a pair of MA MOAP 7, may be even MOAP 10.

From what I can gather, price is a direct result of manufacturing in the UK in smaller quantities. Making anything over here ain't cheap, tho it keeps the locals in work.

We have this problem with some textile products sold by my own company which we source in the UK. Interestingly, whereas a few years ago customers were put off the products because of price, recently they're buying them specifically because they are UK-made.

It's probably the only way UK manufacturing can survive. We can't compete on mass-market production, but we can in small-scale artisan fields.
