He is not an audiophile but just one of those guys that can do anything!! He looked at the plans and said " Oh yah, ok" and did it.

Default First complete audio DIY project since Heathkit

Here's a picture of my first DIY speaker project, a version of Timn8ter's Aria bipoles. Tim very generously shared his drawings with me. Performance has amazed me since the first time I hooked them up.

These are constructed of veneered 3/4 nominal baltic birch plywood and a solid tiger maple front.

Unlike my Heathkits, these provided no opportunity for me to solder a transistor or diode in the wrong way and send me running to my EE father for help!

Default and my second

These are a pair of Jim Griffin's Alpair 10s built for use in basement HT setup (along with the powered sub seen in the picture). Placement leaves much to be desired, but my initial impressions on music is that these are not as good as the Arias--too much harshness and sibilance in the upper midrange?

I used 3/4" nominal MDF and took them to a local auto body place for painting, which they did for what I thought was a very reasonable charge ($180 for two towers and sub). I used drywall mud to fill the MDF 'end grain' then coated them with a couple of coats of shellac.

Thanks to Jim for sharing his design with the community here.

Next project (now that I've caught the bug): an attempt to clone PMC's FB1s using SEAS drivers, eggcrate acoustic foam, and dimensions transcribed from their handy cutaway photos!

Great job on the Fonkens!
If you ever get the chance to implement the EnABle mod, they'll only get better!

Very nice looking set. What drivers are those in sub?

The sub has a Peerless 10" woofer and matching passive radiator. Here's a link to the design I followed:

Sorry, but I picked the wrong bookmark for the first reply. That's the one I decided against building. Here's the one I built:

Quite possibly can provide that last octave or so I needed. The best one I've seen yet. Very nice design.
