Question full range mini monitors

Hi all, long time with no posts, seperation divorce etc... its all bad. Any how came across this online and I'm looking to build a set for nearfeild for use on my computer, probably powered by a t-amp or gain clone or maybe my NAD 3020e for the time being. Anyhow here is the link of what I found.

http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazin...earfield11.htm

I like the size, they could be a bit bigger if needed. What would be a good candidate for a driver in this size. Also enclosure specs?

dmasson: back on the really long now, BIB thread you or someone else gave a site for enclosure design freeeware but I can no longer find it. I Dw.loaded WINISD beta but many of the drivers especially small ones are not there. I.E. Tang Bands, is there better freeware available? Also my girlfreind is going to Gemany (landing in Munich) in Aug. were could she pick up 5" Monacors for BIB's??

Konnichiwa,

My "Breadbox" project may answer your requirements, for nearfield use where you are on axis leave the supertweeters out:

An easy and fairly inexpensive DIY Mini Monitor with a Fullrange Driver

Size looks to big, those at the link (Role Audio Skiff's) use 3.5" FR with a box dimemsion of about 6" x 5" x 3.3" which is what I'm looking for. Cool prodject thought!!!!!!!

Check E-bay: search under "bookshelf speakers"

Some interesting old RatShack single 4"ers in a small box (slightly larger than the Skiff) that might fit the bill. I'm familiar with those RatShack speakers and they were ok as nearfield, but not much in the bass department.

Here's a link:

Default airframe...winISD

you can add any drivers you want to WinISD alpha..
those are pretty small enclosure on the Skiffs.

check zaph audio for reviews of small drivers, suitable for, small enclosures.. or go big and build a set of "micrographs", a Tannoy Autograph enclosure shrung down to (almost) desktop size (I thing 12" tall..)

There is a thread running at :

The Spheres

on spherical monitors, and my own humble efforts are aimed at precisely this application (PC monitor running off T-amp)

I'm using a pair of JXR6s in 2 litre ceramic cubes which work well for nearfield - would hardly be much bigger of made from wood. Although the F3 is calculated at 120Hz, they sound weightier and have reasoable output down to 80Hz.

Colin, I like the Jxr6s but the cost from markaudio here in Canada is $250.00 CDN a pair, way to steep for me. I'm looking at W3-315d Tang Bands at the moment but waiting for more discussion. Hi Vi has a few as well. I plan on using Apple wood for the complete cabinet so far, we'll see how this stuff is to work with.

Default micrograph link

micrograph enclosure

a Japanese site, but in English. Includes scaled drawings in dxf and pdf formats

interesting to note that Tannoy has added a mini Autograph to their Prestige line
