Lynn Olsen Ariel Speakers for Sale
 
Hello all,

I built these about 4 years ago. They are amazing and I get complements all the time. They are MTM Transmission line enclosures using separate chambers for each driver. The crossover is internal, but the back panel can be removed. They are finished in natural maple. They are VERY heavy.

My wife insisted we rearrange our "living room" and now these beauties have no where to go.

Each speaker is made up of about 30+ individual pieces all dadoes and glued together. (see link to plan below). They took me well over 100 hours to cut, assemble and finish. The back panel is actually still unfinished as I was considering fitting it with Plexiglas to show off the "real trick" part of the enclosure (the inside). The crossover and wiring are setup for bi-amping.

Anyway, I'm posting here to see if there is interest out there. The driver kit I purchased from North Creek Music

I built the Mark 5b enclosure. It has downward firing ports. I rest the speakers on a 18x18 tile to reflect the port sound.

Note that the Lynn Olson intended these for tube amplifiers.
