The link is ok...if you remove the comma from the end of the URL. I ran into that myself.

Default Happy New Year!

I started the staining job and noticed that after 1 day they still smell bad. I also ran out of time so I quickly assembled them for the New Year party and postponed the staining for later. The previous test was with just one cabinet and sounded great, now both of them did a really impressive job. Not to mention the looks, the guests have not seen such a thing before and also had no idea a single driver can cover the range so nicely.
Here they are.
Happy New Year!

Wow, nice woodwork.

Did you cut the pieces yourself? Sweet...
How low can it go?

I just finished my FE108EZ project and I'm currently looking for the next project...which might be the Hedlund...

As far as I know there's only 1 image/post if you upload it to the database, so don't get confused.


And a Happy New Year!

Cut them myself, but the hard part was dealing with the dust.

Cannot say how low, in theory they cannot go too low, but it certainly feels low enough. If I boost the bass from the EQ, some big pictures I have on the wall will start to resonate. But this is way above a comfortable listening level, even above a dancing party level.

Pretty low I imagine, considering. I remember modelling the original, longer Hedlund in Martin's BLH sheet a while back and posting it in a different thread -'Which backhorn for linear response to 40Hz' (or something like that!) as I recall. This is its predicted response assuming a Fostex FE206E (not ideal, but not too far off the Lowther specs, which I did not have at the time). I don't think the reduction in length will affect the depth of the response a great deal.

Best
Scott
