These are some speakers I'm building my brother for Christmas. Full range 5" dayton with a pyle tweeter which will be very highly crossed.
They are still in progress, but I hooked them up in the living room and the horn works beautifully.

I failed to mention that I taped off the inside of the tweeters and then painted them with a satin black to match the look that I'm going for. I was very careful and they look factory.
These speakers will be used to supplement my brother's system for movies and tv.
All said and done I'll have less than $100 in them.

They look lovely :o :D A standard BLH would be better ;)

Thank you. Yeah, you're right, but it was fun and a good learning experience and they are very much finished at this point. Standard blh may be a project in my near future.

Totally bizarre, thanks for posting that link. That is some interesting stuff.

Looks like you did a nice job on your brothers speakers Binkster. He's sure to enjoy them.

I looked into that link you posted, that's some crazy stuff there. I won't pretend to understand any of the principals behind them but two things are certain, he's having fun and he must like the way they sound.

Here is my pair of AG180 speakers from the link I posted :angel:

I moved the cable connectors at the internal side instead of on the back :bigeyes:

On the background my gainclone :smash: can be noticed :) made by a friend.

cool... I like them.
What is the exterior of the cabinets made from. Is it countertop formica?
What do they sound like?

Thank you Rick. It is my tradition to handmake my brother's Christmas presents. Here is one from a couple of years back.:)

Mea Culpa Crossblade didn't mean to slight you. ;)

Binkster I see you're a fellow woodworker/cabinetmaker whatever you prefer. I in one capacity or another have been involved in the trade for around 25 years now. These days though I'm but a humble desk jockey. I'm an estimator/project manger for Div. 8 projects.

I like the looks of the mantel clock you made for your brother. Is it made from walnut?

Take care guys.

Rick
