Yes all of those are in good shape- surroundings are soft!
Those six 8" with sand on the cone will all be used in DUNE system, 4 of them just to play bass in about 100L each as spice harvesters, so no matter that dustcap is damaged- au contraire, they have survived Shai Hulud attack

You're a DUNE fanatic, how cool.
These spice harvesters will perform well on Geidi Prime

Hi Simenms, pay attention to the acoustic feedback!

Your TT must be placed not too close to the speakers, and not between them in any case.

The TT must be placed on a shelf or on a proper support, take a look here:
The TNT SandBlaster 1.0

Anyway: your speakers are a work of art! Lots of compliments!

I invented these for my child, with left-overs...turned out to be too big so I kept them for myself.
I am lazy to finish them: increase the bass horn. The idea is to make a nice cabinet for a 6" or 8" Audio Nirvana. Sound really good and image very, very well for a USD30 surround speaker...

I hate square boxes, really.

Hi Max,

Could you comment on the particulars of this design? Very interesting!

Best Regards,

Thnak you dear, for your interest.
This idea was inspired by my snobish little brother who loves expensive bookshelf speakers which image well, have a lot of midrange and HF information but lack true bass. I commented him that a real man would make a hole at the back of the enclosure a add a very big folded horn to profit from some LF

I had these AIWA surrounds doing nothing (5"?) and on a previous life I had build that 3 column pedestal with heavy duty PVC: it is supposed to be a HF diffractor plus bass trap but I cannot remember the name of the original...well I made a hole and the back of the enclosure, as I am a real man and adapted a connection to the central tube, through which the sound wave ascends. The central tube is connected with both lateral tubes at the upper end, which doubles diameter, and then the sound wave descends and is transmited to the wood horn. I decided to use the floor as the "floor" of the horn to win time but now I have to complete and expand the mouth. I would say that the lowest usable LF (Fo?) is around 80Hz now. The advantage I predicted is present. For example, Bach's cello suites sound wonderfully articulated with rich bass harmonics.
As a bet, the central tube has also a hole at the horn end (which can be blocked at will).
I use them with bass reinforced with woofers at present, with active CX at 100Hz.

I can draw a diagram if you so wish, of the present speaker and of the following logical step in design I plan...a tip: a too big bass horn does not exist...always build big.

I hope you like it.
M.

I'm quite pleased with myself after spot of DIY so I thought I would share with you all. A full ranger and stand (which was the hardest thing I've ever built myself).
