Default Dec Ware Corner Horns

I recently completed a remodel of my motorcycle garage and finally had two empty corners in which to place corner horn speakers. So, I built a set of Dec Ware Corner Horns.
I do not believe that many of these have been built and there is little information on the Internet concerning their performance, so I thought that I should contribute a bit.

Fostex FE 166EN drivers were used. The cabinets are made from 3/4 inch MDF and since they are in a garage, they were painted to match the walls and trim.

I will provide a performance review and construction comments in the Full Range forum.

Dennis

Hi,
I'm new here, so I thought I say introduce myself by showing my first, really humble project - a pair of pc speakers with frs8 based on this design (text is in german but plans are pretty self-explanatory) but tuned a little higher:
PC Lautsprecher Projekt - Visaton Diskussionsforum
Click the image to open in full size.

I built these to find out if I'm able to build enclosures. Since I didn't want to spend too much money built these from scraps of birch ply I got at a local home improvement store - one is mostly 15mm and the other one mostly 18mm - so they are far from perfect but I learned a lot, for example to avoid different thickness material in one box.(of cause I kept the internal dimensions)
They are build using hand tools only, was fun, but I'm not sure if I'll do it without a circular saw again.
But I'm really amazed how they sound, I would have never thought a pair of speakers for 35 Euros could be soo nice.
Now I'm pretty hooked on the idea of building a pair of bigger full range speakers and some frs8 speakers to give to a friend (maybe I should better start a thread on this plan).
By the way I lurked here a lot and I really like the tone around here.
greetings
daniel (almost melting)

Just a couple of pictures to show off the latest speaker build. A set of EL70 Derwents as designed by planet10 and Scottmoose. These are my first ever full range speakers, my previous build being a pair of wall mounted 2-ways, and I have to say I'm very impressed with the sound so far. Now all I have to do is stop listening to them and give them a nice finish

Excellent, I'd love to get some higher rez images, particularily once (if*) they get finish on them

*(it is far to easy to just enjoy them, than to actually pull the system down snf finish them )

Do remember that they will continue to improve (mostly mid detail) over 100s of hours.

The original images were shot at fairly high rez, but I didn't want to annoy folks on the forum with massive image attachments. Plus the smaller size hides a few of the minor defects . But I'll certainly post up more images when they get their final finish and I can happily post up or send some higher quality images of their current state if you want.

I know all too well how easy it is to just enjoy your newly built speakers, my previous set are still in their 'natural' plywood finish some 2 years after building them.

I'm hoping to actually finish this pair properly though, but with limited time due to moving house and the fact that I need to run a flush trim bit over one of the cabinets to correct for a wonky saw cut which I won't be able to do until I get back in the local college woodshop in September (summer holidays) it may be some time before they're finished. Still gives me plenty of time to decide on what sort of finish to give the cabinets and to break the drivers in

I stand corrected

Speaking of the designs, the instructor who runs the evening class where I built these was very intrigued by the design as I was building them and was impressed by the other designs on the planet10 website. He was particularly taken by the Frugal horns. One of the woodshop technicians who has built PA style speakers in the past was also interested in the build and shocked to hear that the cabinets were designed only for a single driver Having seen the internal bracing and the size he expected at least 2-3 drivers in each cabinet.

Scott, myself, and a few others are working hard to set new standards for design documentation in the hopes of gaining more converts. If should be noted that Bob sponsored the development of the Lake District Series for the EL70.

Some HiRez images to my mailbox to work with would be nice to have to put up on the website. I will be sure to minimize exposure of the glitchy bits. Unfinished for now, but for sure some when they are finished (even if that ends up being 2012 )
