(Mark Fenlon also has a pair -- i'm currently listening to a stacked pair in the big room )

If you want to borrow a pair to try i'm sure that can be arranged.

I might take you up on that, Dave--(BTW, I've got some "iron" for you as well)
I'll contact you soon-

Default New PVC Speakers "Red Lobster"

speakers i made from PVC pipes, each houses a Hi-Vi B3N 3" magnesium/aluminum alloy full range driver. frequency response is 65-20,000. 3 way binding posts on back. the bass port is on the end of the 1-1/2 pipe/stand. nice sound and a very good sound stage, lots of low end bass for a small speaker. Let me know what you think. check out the video as well

thanks

Very cute, i like them. Given the Fs of the driver, the cabinet may well be better described as a daline.

A transmission line with a largish pre-chamber and a long skinny TL

I used the B3N instead of the B3S because a square frame wouldn't suit this enclosure (aesthetically speaking). Using lots of damping and a HPF at 120hz.

The sound is as expected. Outstanding mids with clear, but a little bright, highs. Excellent detail for my jazz tastes (modern piano) and responds very well to nuanced vocalists like Feist and Regina Spektor. Not so good for rock.

Next step is to add subs. I'm thinking two paralleled in separate boxes, bi-amped with the B3Ns, and through PLLXOs.

hi there,

where did you get the vases from?
