Hi Dave,

My buddy had some Ascend Seirra-1 drivers and crossovers left over from upgrading his book shelfs to the new folded ribbon and driver that he gave me the left overs for free! I actually built these on the cheap:

Acoustic-stuff- $14
Bamboo flooring $25 (clearance at lowes)
Rattle cans of black and Clear Lacquer- $25
Spike feet- $20
Air tubes- $5
Binding posts $10
Glue and caulk and bondo- free

I'm blown away on how well they sound. This was my first ever attempt at this and I'm hooked! Thinking of building a Sub woofer next.

-Tom

Default Usher BE 10 Clones

Hi, i saw these Usher DIY speakers someone built.
They look like the Usher BE 10 speakers using different drivers.
The cabinet looks exactly like the BE 10.

Check out these speakers.
They kind of look like the Rockport Antares.

I finally finished the first two speakers on a project I started a decade ago that was interrupted by life. These are tri-amped boxes with Vifa M26WO-06-08, M10MD-39-08 and D27TG-35-06. Amps are DIY 100+50+50W (BJT discrete+2xLM3886) per channel, crossovers are DCX2496.

Box is 100L sealed with about 1kg stuffing (probably too much by the sound), sims say F3 of about 39Hz with Q of about 0.6 but the microphone is still in the post so I haven't measured yet.

Try to ignore the toddler-entertainment gear.

This is the sort of thing I had to contend with while building; meet Horace:

Lusk your right, those speakers look nice.
They look like Avalon speakers.
I also saw these speakers they make.
There similar to the one's i posted above except these speakers use Eton woofers and Ceramic midbase's and a ceramic tweeter.
The woofers look like 11 inch Eton woofers.

Default These DIY speakers look great.

The cabinet looks really good.
I like the one that uses the Eton 12 inch woofer, Eton 7 inch midbase and the Eton ribbon tweeter.
