Default 206es-r, Open Baffle style


I had the drivers at home for a while, and ordered the wood a few months ago, but it is all 6 hours away by car; it is at my parents place, where I wanted to build it with my father.

So I got bored and thought, what the heck, let's open baffle them.

I used the plans here, and modified them a bit so the driver is 12 inches down from the top.

My source is an Apple Powerbook 12 inches 1GHz, with an Audipohile USB from M-Audio, some kimber interconnects from 12 years ago, and my amp is a S.E.X. from bottlehead, stock.

The material for the open baffle is cheap: 2 sheets of 4' x 4' 3/8" thick plywood that I got for less than 40$ (canadian). The job was tough, as the plywood is too flexible. There is no doubt in my mind though that with better plywood, more quality you come out.

I am having fun. The voices especially are fantastic (especially Mavis Staples and Lucky Peterson's album "Spirituals & Gospel Dedicated to Mahalia Jackson").

This was posted in FE206ES-R, first impressions thread, and a thread regarding this topic has been created so that the other one stays coherent.
