Thanks, before I had one 1" tweeter and since changing to two tweeters, the 7" hartley and jbl 2405 the imaging and sound stage have gotten better. Last weekend got my 75tl amps and it is wonderful now. I'll post new pics when I get them. The crossovers were built with help from the place where I got the drivers and there are L pads to control both tweeters and the mid. The veneer is bookmatched bubinga on the sides and bloodwood on the tops and fronts, substrate is 1" mdf.

The veneer is from B&B Rare Woods here in Denver, he has a great web site with lots of scans of available veneer, but it is sure nice to be able to go and see them in person. This project grew and so I didn't have enough bubinga to do all of it.

Thanks for the info. It's nice that your modular design allows you to easily swap things around.

Default Electrostatic hybrid

I designed and built a center channel capable of keeping up with the huge MartinLogan Monoliths I have:

System Pictures & Description


The full design and build was carefully documented in thread over at the MartinLogan Owners Forum.


The Monoliths are also Modded, and the entire rig is biamped with 15 channels of Sunfire amps and DBX DriverRack speaker processors (4800 + 260).

Oh, and there's a rather capable Infinite Baffle Sub as well

Placed in the custom designed and acoustically treated room, it's the best system I've ever heard, at any price.

Default My new mains project completed.

I had to wait 2 months 3 weeks for these cabinets to get done. Did some work yesterday and was going to take my time with it. Got into a rhythm and went on to complete it.

NICE! Klipsch Beaters . I like the part where you ended up completing projects. I do the same for programming and my other passions. It's kind of like a beautiful girl, once you get a whiff...anything in between you and her is to be destroyed .

Default HiVi B3S Computer Speakers

Here are some computer speakers I built using the HiVi B3S using the design from Zaph|Audio. I used some leftover paint from another project so they are fairly plain. They are a big upgrade from my previous speakers and did not cost very much.

The first speakers I ever built myself. I am sad to say they were built before I really took enough interest in diy audio to know what I was doing... they are solid white oak, have a lip on the edge of the very small baffle, have no acoustic stuffing, no filter components, the driver is too big/enclosure too small (in a moment of incredible stupidity I used the t/s parameters for the 3" HiVi driver but ordered the 4" one....)
They are not isolated in any real way from the surface they rest on.

In fact, technically I think they are the worst designed speakers on here...

BUT the craftsmanship is excellent (if I do say myself) getting an exact 22.5 degree angle on the edge of each of the 16 slats (32 edges) not to mention devising a way to hold the whole bloody thing together while it was glued up was quite challenging.

However I plan to test these as they are... then... rebuild them with the 3" hivi drivers, a smoothed and rounded over baffle, stuffing and the filter which zaph used with these drivers (the enclosure is roughly the same size) and see how big a difference it makes.

hmmmmm
