It just adds extra ambiance and air to the mix and higher frequencies and strangely reinforces the bass. Perhaps younger ears would find it too much but as we get older any help in the HF is appreciated. at least by me anyway. You have to do the experiment to convince yourself it is not just snake-oil talk. They really do add something to the mix, especially with the FE167e drivers that starts to fall off at 10KHz. I know DaveD (Planet10) however, doesn't find the need for the supertweeter with his FE167 Fonkens. Perhaps it's a European thing
Hi Toppsy

I'm thirty something, and have a pair of Brines 1600MKII with FE167Es drivers. I find I'm hankering after a touch more top end sparkle. I would like a pair of T90As but they are a bit more than I want to spend at the moment, so I'm probably going to buy a pair of FT17Hs instead.

Hi there!

Just for fun,after building cyburgs viech with the beyma 8ag/n,I felt I would have a go with a smaller enclosure,so I built a 45liter bass reflex enclosure(another scattered tip from cyburg collected from several forums),box dimensions calculated with some software I no longer recall,specifically for these drivers.

Theyre in prototype shape,and the back is being held in place by screws,so that I can still fine tune it regarding bracing and damping.

All in all,they have a warmer sound than in viech guise,and they are quite nice to listen too!They have a bit more bass,but still,its no bass freak.
I mean,its no party PA,but sounds very delicate,with enough bass for me!

mdf cost was about 15 euros,and since I wanted to try something unpretensious,I gave it a go at 10mm mdf.I know its too thin...

Semisentient those loudspeakers look absolutely delicious!
how did you get them to look so glossy?great finishing man!

my diy looks terrible by comparison... lol

By the way,anybody here can tell me if midband coloration is due to very thin mdf panels and the
lack of internal bracing?

I removed the bass reflex port with about 10cms long,and the bass got much richer and goes
considerably lower than before!

Thanks

I did a lot of sanding.. priming... sanding... spraying... not being happy... sanding.. priming... sanding... spraying... not being happy.

Then I decided to try an epoxy appliance paint that comes in an aerosol can. It worked pretty well, but would spit out drops along with the spray. The picture didn't pick up the imperfections. I may do a wet sand in a while to buff out the imperfections.

In all honesty, I should have made the speakers from some nice hardwood, or veneered them. Would have been easier for sure. At least now I can appreciate how hard it is to get a nice glossy paint finish. That said, I am pretty happy with how they look.

If you spend the amount of time as I did on your finish, yours would look awesome I am sure!

Here some pictures of my system based on the Tangband W3-871s units. This unit is made in MDF 19 mm. It has a Notch filter (L1 0.56 mH - C1 6,8 uF - R1 6,8 Ohm) like "Lancetta" project. Totally white like amp and pre (Gainclone 3886 + Bride of Zen "Pass"). The sound is good!!!

Default Some interesting ideas here.

Some interesting ideas here.
I am building a small speaker with Jordan drivers like the James R. Griffin design, 7.5X12X12 inches. Do any of you have experience of these speakers?

Thanks for appreciation Navin, the semplicity is my target. Whoever said that HiFi should be black? I think music is white, compound of all notes, like colour. Silent s black...
I have also built an active Subwoofer in the same look for help the lower freq. I will send some pictures in the future...
My source are different: CD Yamaha CDX 530E (evergreen), Phono Turntable Dual CS503, for video Kiss 450 and sometime Ipod touch in a dock.
