There's a guy in LA that'll build you your own personal CNC rounter for a couple grand. Then you can DIY it.

Those should be fairly easy to make. Just make a template for the router bushing to follow.

Good point Bill. Since the layers are all identical, (ok, except for the outermost) this is quite practical.

I spent some time trying to figure out how to make Lynn Olsen's Ariel speakers this way, but got into other designs. Certainly would be time to get a high-end router.

Someone could make a kit and include just one templete. A lot cheaper to ship than all the layers!

Default Beyond totaly cool!

Sorry to understate my reation to the Japeneese Routerfest speakers.

With a CNC router or mill you could make these out of plastics, Corian, and other very dense materials.

This design concept is very cool. A web based service bureau that could deliver let you design on line and then deliver the layers would get my credit card out.

If you mixed up the layer materials say Corian, plywood, mdf Aluminum (OK, Maybe not all at once...) you could get a cool look
AND constrained layer damping

I should start a company that supplies CNC-routed MDF cabinets to speaker makers. I could have, like, three CNCs, and then do stuff for clients that want to have their own speaker companies but have no room for a proper wood shop.

It's a shame I'm not in the US
