Haven't neither soldered or screwed the drivers in place but this pair of speakers were made from a design I saw on the web and from one of Mrs K's old heels. As can be seen, I didn't overdo the paint job ...

Will set them up and see what they sound like this weekend. Drivers are HiVi 2" fullrange.

if you can easily detect less than .099mm - don't use a gloss finish
That would be how thick compared to it's red sibling!??

well that was just a half-asked joke, but thanks to all the information that fit to ignore (thanks Google ):

Quote:
"Flaxen hair is the finest, from 1/1500 to 1/500 of an inch in diameter and black hair is the coarsest, from 1/450 to 1/140 of an inch."
so red would be somewhere between flaxen blonde and "blueberry" blonde

but let's not loiter on this subject too long,

Default Another pair 127eN mets

Finally finished my mets. Annoyed dave with DIYers existential crisis questions. Put my very substandard woodworking skills to the test (yes these were taken with a cellphone and no, I'm not likely to take better ones for posting) but I'm pretty darn happy with the results.

Finished a folded half tower with CHR-70 drivers following planet10's plans here. These are still breaking in, but they already sound a lot better already than the BIC DV62si they are replacing.
