@ebijma:
I know some sources for Tangband in Germany,
e. g. www.spectrumaudio.de
but I dont know how the situation is in The Netherlands. I think that the chances are not bad, as these babies are quite popular these days.

Have fun, nice greetings, Berndt

I ordered my TB's from SpectrumAudio. After they received my money transfer, the shipment arrived to Finland in 6 working days, so I bet the delivery to Netherlands would be even faster.

There is nothing quite like the thrill of getting something for nothing!

Somebody gave me a pair of Pioneer 4 inch drivers and I had them lying around for a few months before connecting them to an amp and hearing that they sounded quite reasonable.

I had seen the Cyburgs design and adapted that by increasing the cabinet width by 25mm. I managed to find somebody throwing out some chipboard and spent a couple of days in my workshop. I already had glue, fibreglass insulating wool and wire so I didn't spend a penny on the whole project.

Last evening I connected them up and was an hour late for supper! They are not the best speakers that I have ever heard and my other speakers are better in several areas. But what they do, they do very well. Great imaging, a huge soundstage (deep and wide) and the speakers themselves are acoustically invisible.

I played some acoustic music first which was very good. With solo vocals, I get close to that 'being there' sensation. But I was surprised at how well they handle rock and orchestral music as well.

For the cost, effort, and time, these speakers have me smiling from ear to ear so a BIG thank you to Cyburgs for sharing his design.

PS - I was going to sling a quick coat of black paint over them but I think that they deserve something a bit better!

Another set of official Frugal-phile(tm) speakers

Got close up pictures of the drivers? (including a snap of the back)

Some of these Pioneers were quite good, and most respond to a bit of tweaking.

You mean you want me to stop listening and take a driver out Dave! OK, I'll get one out a little later and take a couple of pictures.

Yes... it will probably be worthwhile -- even if i can only provide some useless trivia.

Mark down any numbers & markings too.
