Talking about Onken, I made new cabinets for my micro-Fonken, though I have used HiVi B3n (I think they are called) instead of the Fostex.
Great sounding speakers using such a small driver.

Made nu big fuzz getting the VERY best result, but aimed for something acceptable to go with my PC.

Nice!

But the bottles in the background?
Skymtar jag en smirnoff lite till vänster där?

I thought the so called "husbehovsbränning" was removed a very long time ago, so home-made... Humm...

Cannabis vodka, sound illegal even though obtained in Estonia.

By the way, the finish seems to be not so good. I see small holes at the joints.

And you can see the wood telegraphing through the finish, and one vent has router-overrun, and there are divots!

AND, they look perfect for the job you're asking of them, who wants piano lacquered mpinga burl for the PC speakers, where you're going to set a can of soda?

Nice work

The holes at the joints were processed by running a V-router tip along them and then filling them with Putin ... putty I mean.

I really wasn't in a mood to spend to much time (over)doing them too much. After all, they will propably end up in the dark corner close to my computer and the flaws will not be seen.

The drivers were bought from a guy in a Swedish HiFi-forum just for fun and it took me a while to figure out how to use them. When I saw the various designs at the fONKEN site I decided to try the mu-fonken and that was a hit.

I am into next project. Ended up with two pairs of HiVi 2" drivers and again couldn't decide what to build. Then I saw this design:

Found a pair of dirt cheep heel and started to plan:

However, my wife confiscated the shoes and gave a pair of her old:

OT: Many years ago, before Sweden joined the European Community/Union, import of all alcohol >65% was strictly forbidden = smuggling of illegal drugs. Now our "smuggling rules" are adjusted to European rules which means all stuff sold (legally) in Europe is also allowed into Sweden. BTW, the Cannabis vodka doesn't taste very good ...

Yes, as was stated, "Made nu big fuzz getting the VERY best result, but aimed for something acceptable to go with my PC."

This thread is intended to share accomplishments and see what's being done. Nice job Soundbrigade.

I got the MDF cut to 1/100th of a mm by a partner company, did my best to assemble the parts with highest accuracy but still ... MDF works that way, 1/256" off line is more visable than ... I-don't-know-what.

in our shop we'd describe less than .25mm as a "thin blonde one"
if you can easily detect less than .099mm - don't use a gloss finish
