Default Sherwood Forester

Doe anyone have any information about the "Sherwood Forester" (Sherwood made the product pun) enclosure of the 1950s? It featured a 5.5 foot horn path and 12" driver. I am looking for any drawings or spec sheets.

I don't have the kit info. Alas, I missed out on an auction for that just lately. (search eBay Auction number 190160920940 ). What I *do* have is a complete mint-condition set of drivers, factory crossover, and factory enclosure label (but alas not the enclosure itself) for one of these. If anyone finds the data on this (or wants the drivers etc.), please let me know!

Thanks for your interest but I did find a copy of the complete assembly instructions for the Forester kit.

Great! I haven't even seen one let-alone plans. If you don't mind sharing, what's the configuration of the horn?

I'll dig it out and make a PDF or Jpeg out of it. I've not had much lick uploading to the site and may have to email it to you. Give me a day or two.

KLBIrd: I'm very interested too. IIRC, the construction was pretty complicated; a long box with turn in it wrapped around the inside of the main box somehow.

Great. Thank you, KLBIrd. Be pretty funny to be in a hurry after around 60 years. At your convenience is quite-fine
