Very nice DIY speaker work, very nice pictures, but don't post many big sized links together in the future, its too heavy to load via enough people's slower connections. Prefer attachments 1024x768 (3 can be loaded per upload session, 10 is each post's limit).

I am amazed! Congratulations for the results!

... the cloth is alright

It seems to me that the bass enclosure is "closed box" - why is that? and the mid enclosure is vented and probably tuned?

Why didn't you use the additional volume behind the mid/treble enclosure together with the main bass volume?

Again congratulations! I hope you enjoy them allot!!!

That is amazing!!!!!!!!!! I'm wondering how did you go about making the arcs for the inside pcs. I'm looking to make one of my own, having trouble trying to get the arc/height/diameter size correct. I want to be 10" at the front and about 14" deep. I haven't got a clue

Beautiful project.

The "Amati Clone Project" link on your first page is to my own site , so I couldn't resist a comment!

I never started building the project I described, partly because I was (and still am) happy with my previous speaker project, and partly because the Amati build would have worked out very expensive with the drivers I judged to be the closest match to the ones used by SF in the original.

It would be very interesting if you made up an article on the web about your project, discussing your reasons for choosing the drivers you used (quite different from the ones in the Amati in many ways) and describing the crossover design process and the build (though your great photos indeed are worth many words!).

How do they sound? You didn't mention that...

By the way, I built my own speakers in a small spare bedroom in our old house with the minimum of woodworking tools.

Alex

I agree. The grills are perfect, very vintage. No one will suspect this is a modern loudspeaker.
