Default My new speaker project pics

Here is a pic of my new speakers!
They are 1.5" thick baltic birch ply laminated with layers of carbon fiber and rosewood. The tweeter is an Accuton c23-6, the woofer is an Eton 7-372. Crossovers use hovland caps, alphacore inductors, mills resistors and cardas wiring. They are still breaking in but they sound very promising even after one day!

Default Eton woofer

What are your thoughts about the Eton woofer, do you like it? Any comments would be appreciated. Can you compare it to other DIY woofers, Scan-Speak, Seas, Peerless etc?


Thanks.

I will try to take some more pics asap. My thoughts on the Eton woofers so far are that they have huge balls! I'm getting some really low and defined bass. I definetly need to tweak the crossovers and cabinets but its not really a good idea until I get new amplification. This project was, at least to me, really expensive (about $1400 usd) but so far the results have been quite rewarding. I was playing them really loud this morning (Outkast's "the Love below"/"Seakerbox") and the enclosures were totally non resonant. When I put my hand on the side, I couldn't feel a thing. For me, they do not require a subwoofer and have excellent highs but the mid band is a little cluttered and recessed, until they are fully broken in I will reserve final judgment.

More pics coming soon

Default Here is the crossover

Here is the crossover, it is very simple. There are only 5 components per channel. Two caps, one inductor and two resistors. They are starting to break in and I've been playing with position which seems to affect them quite a bit. I'm getting happier every day!

Really nice looking! What are your cabinets constructed of?

When I saw your pictures, I said, "That guy's gotta be a luthier!" Then I saw guitar building in your profile. The rosewood-and-CF combination is a dead giveaway! Indian rosewood, I presume?

Great looking project!
