Closed box design:Scan Speak monitor
I started with my box design at the end of last summer 2005.
I wanted to build a very good box with small dimensions for home use.
My requirements were as follows:
1. Sonics as the primary focus
2. Small dimensions with relatively high power and good bass response for its size.
After searching on the internet I found the studio monitor design of Vance Dickason. This was exactly what I was looking for. Small, sonics as the primary focus, bass as low as 54 Hz at -3dB....
Woofer is SS 18W8545 tweeter D2509/9900 revelator
You can see the design at the following link:
So I purchased the Speaker design Cookbook of Vance Dickason and started building.
I wanted to use the very best materials. So I've build the box in oak. I've used very expensive caps and coils in my crossover network.
Because I want the best components at no price I've put an air coil in the crossover of the woofer, therefore I must recalculate the net internal volume of the box because Vance didn't use an air coil. The internal volume is exactly 7.9 litre just as described in the book of Vance.
I want to share this design with everyone so I've put some pictures below:
I've used a lot of internal bracing. The housing is of 2cm thick oak and the front pannel is 3cm thick.
