That's ambitious, but some of the most beautiful speakers ever made. Hope they work out!

dunno ; send them to me ( shipping on you) and I'll check



seriously - in first post of tutorial/presentation - FFL wrote that boxes are made from original plans , with few changes , made because of tiny differences in some boards thickness

I resume - mm here and there .....

So beautiful!!! I am speechless...

I wish FFL and I were neighbors, I'd help him finish his crown molding in listening room in exchange for listening privileges.

Hey, Zen: Thanks for sharing the link - that is an awesome project!

David (or others, too): What's your impression of the sound of the Westminsters? Have you ever had the opportunity to compare them to the Arden or Berkeley (ported) systems, and if so, how do they stack up? I've read somewhere that the Westminsters used the HPD/385 Dual Concentric drivers, but that they had a different surround than the standard half-roll foam type. Is that evident in your specimins?

Thanks to a friend of mine who has been praising the sound of Tannoy Dual Concentrics for as long as I can remember, I recently gave in and acquired a pair of HPD/385, and am now deliberating a cabinet design. I've always yearned to build a pair of Jensen Imperial cabinets - might those be a good match for my drivers? Any suggestions/opinions would be welcome!

Regards,
Wilf

Mighty ZM's Blog - anyway - those are pics from proofing da concept - with old and beaten up pair of Gauss spks

in fact - all is the same now - just imagine BD 15" instead of old ones
