I had some problems to place my lancettas in the room. The only possible area for the right speaker was kind of behind the fireplace (image). In that position the bass were totally put out when the speakers played in phase. If playing off phase the bass were there but the higher frequencies sounded strange. Then, after walking around in the room with the speakers without finding any good spots, I looked upp in the ceiling and decided to try that position. I mounted them temporary like this.

The result was fantastic and I decided to put them there permanently.
Now the only obstacle was to persuade my girlfriend to hang up the speakers in the ceiling. I knew there was no idea just asking her if I could put them there so I decided a different approach. I suggested a nice baldachin with some spotlights to light up her paintings on the wall. She liked the idea alot and even after I mumbling something about maybe put some small speakers in it she was on
This is the result.

Yes I know I promised her spotlights but there will be time for that later on

Hi h@kan,

i think you should keep your promise as soon as possible,
because nobody likes to be kidded ...

But i see the intergration of the speakers is very felicitous.
Looks good, and as you said, it was the best place for listening
too.

I just wonder a bit, why you did not tilt your fullrangers
downwards a little, to get some more brillance at the
listening position.

Cheers

I tried different angles but from my listening position I could'nt really hear any improvement when mounted tilted. I guess the position in the ceiling is not optimal for the the higher frequencies but overall this was the best possible position.

Mr. knarf,

Could you please tell us more about the SET amp visible in the bottom left ? Is that a commercial 845 offering? Looks a bit like a Kaylin I saw in pictures somewhere but that used a pair of 300B tubes and octals like 6SN7's IIRC.

Nice job on the speakers.

Default are the bulgarian the best woodworkers ?

Superb gallery !

Seeing your work, I was wondering if there is a tradition of craftmanship in the field of audio in Bulgaria ?!

Indeed I remember various posts of bulgarian builders, particulary the one using ETHER drivers and all there enclosures were beautifully crafted.

Anyway congratulation for your work, that I suppose sound very good !

Default Christmas Present

My father asked for some small speakers for his office/retreat so he can hole up and listen to some tunes in there.

Thanks to Godzilla who keeps the plans for these little BRs on his website. Some scrap birch plywood, oak veneer and some old 40-1197 drivers and I'm done.

They sound real nice for the small amount of work they represent.

Happy Holidays!
