Here some pictures of my small 5.0 HT system based on the Tangband W3-871s units.
(Lancetta HE and CT209)

All filters applied are the same as the Lancetta High-End version.

All cabinets are increased in outher size for cosmetic resons.

The cabinets are made of 10mm thick MDF, finished with black velvet all arround.
The side panels are beech and painted with dark teak finish.

The hole at the front of the Lancetta's is finished with a thick
aluminiumplate and foam. (not shown)

Superb!

Obviously a good eye for an interior

What is the design: MLTL, Voigt Pipe?

Default Small Horns

Hi,

this is a picture of my beloved Bicors; I was offered an old pair of enclosures that I refurbished using an electric sander and two coats of primer. They still need the finishing coats, but I cannot decide on the colour.
Drivers are Lowther PM6Cs, modified by Mr Stamm (former Loth-X). They sound truly excellent IMHO, lacking most of that infamous "shout". No tweeter needed either.

These are modified Buschhorns (smaller CC, additional bracing). Unfortunately they are not perfect, as they are made from 12mm MDF (wrong thickness/material) and resonate at times. With the right music, they simply disappear. I just have to build them again with 19mm plywood, which I'm going to do this winter. It seems my GF loves these speakers even more than I do. Strange.

Chris' wife was also very anamoured of the looks of his B-Horns. To the point of buying him another set of drivers when someone talked him out of them

Same speaker, same story in my house My girlf is very happy with them. From an aesthetic point of view they are proportionally just about perfect I think, that was one of the big factors in my choosing to build a pair. Of course, let's not forget they sound superb too and offer great versatility. Coredump, those look very impressive in red now!

The tallish slim aspect of the B-Horns, is i think, what is appealing. A test of this is underway. Our next CSS WR/FR project is a sealed bipole floorstander. Size of the front is almost bang on the B-Horns, but it is not as deep (~240mm).

Thankx

This is for the first time my partner likes my DIY speakers.

The Lancetta's HE are simple TM with two Helmholtz resonators .

Ok,

I can't resist.
Pics of my Ultra High-end, active Fullrange monitor project:

Yes, I know it looks suspiciously like those Z-2200 ebay specials and some PE buyout cabinets (maybe $120 total cost)


Cheers,

AJ

The Lancetta's look interesting, I'd like to build a set. Could someone send me plans.

Thanks

My wife also loves the B'horns, (must be something genetic no?)
A tad more bass would be nice at times, but their ability to disappear, combined with their size, makes 'em a winner Chez Moi!
