As I said in the beginning, I didn't really "make" these. They are overstock/b-stock from my manufacturer, which allowed me to sell them at an unusually low price. If I bought a new batch, they wouldn't be much cheaper than the Betsy or BetsyK, which are both much better speakers!

So I've moved (well renovated and no have a roomate) and my OB's are too big to fit anywhere in the apartment.

Any ideas of a smaller speaker I could make with these? It can be tall if it needs. Preferably not overly complex as my access to a wood shop is minimal.

No, I just 'run the numbers' for folks. You can make it square, though theoretically a golden or acoustic ratio is better to average out its Eigenmodes to make them easier to damp: 12.56" x 20.32", 13.5" x 18.9", 14.18" x 18", 13.17" x 19.38" to list a few.

Hope you do and document it on a build thread. Based on others build experiences with the Betsy K, it should perform well once dialed in to the room.

I've been listening to a pair of the purples the last few days. They are better than I expected. I'll report back once I get them more permanently mounted.

Time to save for some Betsys.

Paul, are you living up in Boulder?
