Default DIY Westminster Royal

Here are a few SKETCHUPS of a future project of mine.

It is based on the Tannoy Westminster Royal

This would be a floor to ceiling corner build-in (approx 7' x 3' x 2').

The triple-folded horn is 10' long.

The build process includes eight boxes...

1. Front conical horn
2. 15" coaxial driver rear enclosure
3. Inner folded rear horn (left and right)
4. Middle rear horn flair (left and right)
5. Outer final rear horn flair (left and right)

The final design (this is just a proof-of-concept) will be modelled using Martin's front / rear horn worksheet when it becomes available.

Many thanks to Bag End for making available 3d DWGs of thier 10', 12", and 18" drivers.

These can be imported / used in SKETCHUP (free from Google)

Good luck. I envy your woodworking ability. I look at this cabinet and then go off to have a drink!

Well, it helps having friends that do finish carpentry, and boat building.

Worst case, import SKETCHUP into CAD and have them cut professionally.

Many options...

What drivers are you planning on using -I assume you've got a set of Golds, or other Tannoy units?

In my dreams.

Here is a less pricey alternative -- used Beyma 15DXs (see here) ...

The Eminence Beta 15CX might be worth a punt too (though you'll need to but the crossovers too). Cheap and looks pretty solid to me.

Turn it upside down :P

Towers look silly with drivers at the bottom, but if your nd goal is sound quality and not appearance i dont see how upside down would matter
