Default My first DIY system

Hey all.

These are my first DIY speakers, using 2 x XT25TG30-04 & 4 x 850439 MTM
The boxed are built using 30mm MDF with 22mm internal bracing and around 30L approx. The speakers just need a few coats of something/sanding and there finished.

My gear is...

CD = Marantz CD6002
AMP = Cambridge Audio Azure 640A
TUNER = Sansui T60
INTERCONNECT = Chord Cobra 3
PWR LEADS = Home made
Platforms = 18mm MDF with Ball Bearing spacers

Current XO is 12db LR @ 2500hz but i am currently designing a new one.
The sound so far is OK but I am looking forward to much better results with a new XO that has baffle step comp and impedance smoothing

Cheers Dean

Just finished my subwoofer as part of a year 12 project. I'm also making floor standing speakers, which i will post up eventually. My project is due today so i might not get photos until they have been marked, which will be around November.

Click the image to open in full size.

For those interested, the front of the enclosure is covered in leather, and the rest in gloss black laminate. Eight chrome stands connect it to the base.
The box is a perfect cube at 360x360x360mm, and is lined with barium sound deadening material and acoustic tiles. There are also two internal braces, though they're not really that neccessary seeing as the driver is only an 8" HiVi D8G. It has an F3 of 35Hz.
I know you're probably thinking i'm an idiot for picking such a driver, but i didn't know anything about drivers at the time when i designed this project (when i was 15).
Also i was on a pretty tight budget and couldn't really afford anything serious.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Hopefully it sounds good too.

very nice sub, best looking I have seen! also 8" with f3 of 35Hz in closed enclosure? that should produce a respectable growl!
