Just got my hONKEN (fONKEN boxes with HiVi B3N) speakers finished (almost).

I am perfectly happy and VERY surprised that they play that low. Maybe they sound a bit constrained but I am used to my exponential horns (5" Sonido).

Will swap the screws.

However, I had the pieces cut out at the "wooden hobby circle", glued them together and "routed" away some extras at home why the final result wasn't the most perfect. But just for hooking up to a small amp and listen to Youtube, they are perfect.

Default My zigmahornets ... with black Coral holey baskets

Though I haven't heard Zigmahornets with the Merrill drivers, I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the holey baskets.
I don't know whether there is any audible difference between the black and the beige HB's. I may swap in a pair after I've listened to these for a few weeks.

Default Detail of the grilles (red cedar)

The reason for the wide grilles is obvious.
A case of making a virtue of a necessity!

cheers

Default OB speakers with SEAS F8

Hi, here my OB speakers with the SEAS F8 / not exactly beautiful or well-made, but the sound is great. I am looking forward to making a nicer baffle going forward.....

size is 40" x 20", the speaker is located in the center of the upper half. The two "U" sides are 8" deep. The filter is a 0.82mH air inductor with 10Ohm resistor in parallel.

Hello Hesener!

They're not exactly ugly or just slapped together either! Heck either a nice paint job or some veneer and they'd be quite nice indeed! Besides that the sound is great!

Yes, you can certainly look forward to making a nicer baffle in the future, but enjoy listening to what you have now.

Default My Visaton B-200's

These are my B-200's in what started as an Omega A8 replica but have evolved into something far different. No Aperiodic port, a resonant 18mm floating ply back panel (four brass screws and rubber washers securing it) and an unloaded port of 240 by 70mm's. Overall size, 280, 370, 510mm (W,D,H). Filter is Mundorf foil/air wound 1mH inductor and M-restist 8.2ohm resistor in parallel. Resonance control is bitumin pads and 2" flat foam top and bottom and 1" Foam on the side walls and contoured foam on rear panel.

They sound stunning through the little Dayens Ampino. It has taken over 6 months of experimenting and tweeking with different materials, thickness, port sizes, filter components and I almost gave it away several times, but I'm glad I didn't. The rewards are well worth it when you get it right with the B-200. Don't give up on them! I know OB would have been easier but now I have a compact that sound incredible. Response is 55hz to natural roll off and I don't feel I need tweeters.
