Hi all, I like to show you my last speakerprojekt, built in oct. 2009. I use a very cheap speaker, the SENON/ROCKWOOD dy1026u and I´m supriced that this one sound much better than many other more expensive speakers. In this 10" dimension I try also: Beyma 10AGN, Ciare CH250, 25-250 5248 U 35 Saba 10 and an old unknown Wigo. I try many more speakers: Fostex 206E, Alpair 10 for exsample and many old vintage speaker, also.

The cheap dy1026u won this race! Now, over one year.​

An externally hosted image should be here but it was not working when we last tested it.


The box is a case from Ikea IVAR-system: IKEA | Regalsysteme | IVAR System | IVAR | Kasten

€25 in germany, $40 in USA (in germany its cheaper, about $8) :eek:

the baffle is made of 13 mm/0.51 inch special plywood in germany we say: "Siebdruckplatte"
the position of the spaeker was simulated with "edge" from Tolvan

The Baffle is decoupled with felt.

The box is vented by the gripholes; 61.9 heart

the bottom of the IKEA-Box resonate... If you mean this must be terrible, you have to hear it. I built an other extreme 90 litre bowl (low resonate).

The deep frequenz is much clearer, but the Ikea-Box sounds more real, up to middle sound level. High Power level is to much, than the bowl will be better.

Later I added a protective grid. of cause we have wild animals :D

Hi,

sorry I´m not here, so often.

I have a new room for audio and now I hear with the bowlspeaker.

In germany you can buy this speaker by hth :HIGH-TECH-HIFI

scroll down and you find the speaker.

For my ears I think this speakers are better than the most Fostex I know. Last one I can hear was the 206e and I don´t like it.

The 1026u runs without any filter.

nice greatings, Hatti

Thanks for posting that box Hatti! I've wanted to do something in an IKEA box for a long time, but we haven't lived near an IKEA for a few years. One just opened in Denver, and I thought about stopping when I was nearby for RMAF. You can bet I will next time I have the chance! How strong is that box? Have you been using it for awhile?

@Dynablastertuners: yes thats right, but what really happened in this range? Not so much for the most musik: Weiterleitung zu www.independentrecording.net/irn/resources/freqchart/main_display.htm

For me its enough.

These big bowls where built myself and this takes a long time, about 1 and a half year.

A take a big steel-bowl for gardendesign and put on shredded newspaper with glue for wallpaper. It takes a very long time for drying.

Than I cut them in peaces to get the steel-bowl out and glue the peaces togehter.

@IG81: thx for the bonuspoints :)

nice greatings, Hatti
 
I like IKEA (and Germany) :) I think what you did with the original photo (Ivar desk drawer?) was cool. In Germany, every tree is so valuable it (almost) has its own serial number, life support monitor, and 24-hour security. Wood is very valuable there :) Hmmm, about useful feedback for your project...nope, sorry none here :D
