CNC horn GB, intrested?
I have met a guy online who posts on this site. He was selling a pair of speakers that he desgined and cut out using CNC. They were built similar to the Japanese DIY horn kits. My question is if we could convince this gentalman to cut out kits for us would you guys want to buy one?

If there are enough of us the next question would be what horn design would we want to try?

The most difficult part is trying to choose... so many plans & so many variables. Anyone have the Japanese horn links handy?

I've found it....

DJNUBZ, do you have a horn design in mind you would like to try for your next project? Maybe this will be the icebreaker...:smash:

actualy their 191 and 181 look like good canidates. I wish some guys in here with more experience would jump in. I was thinking that to keep the costs down only the center peices would be cut out and the builder would supply his outer peices.

You're right, DJNUBZ; the MM-181T & MM191T looks like good candidates because the 181 is for FE168E, FE168ES, FE166E and the 191 is for FE208ES, FE208E, FE206E, etc... In terms of the pieces, the horn would not be complete without the sides. Any ideas where a drawing for the 181, 191 can be posted?

I emailed the people at that site not long ago they were very helpful but the cost to get spearkers sent here is sky high. The smallest all wood BH was $230.00 + $209.00 shipping the cool ones with the clear plexie sides are over $600.00 and thats with out speakers! I think I just might buy a router and have at it and build my own, I can mess up a few sheets of mdf for 6 bills.:skull: :Pirate:

land, we are talking about having the same design made for us here in the states on a CNC machine. Why would you do it yourself if you could bypass the shipping from japan?

I'd like to try one...
Great idea to get a group to go together and have the kit cut for us and I think layertone has done some interesting work already...

Has a design been settled on yet?

I registered for this site just so I could post to this thread...

Again a good idea.

I think there are too many variables; maybe I should start off with the recomended enclosures??

can anyone post a picture of this cabinet?
The one on the link is too pixleated (sp)
is anyone able to enlarge it? or clean it up, or post a better pic?
If possible driectly from the side.
Oh, and supply external dimensions of the case.

If i can see it better, and know the overall size, i can work it out and make one. If it works well then great. Woods cheap and i have a router so nothing lost if it turns out bad.
