Default SSA-WG speaker project

I completed my speakers that I have been working on for quite some time.

A few details;

Name:
The SSA-WG is a 3-way Scan-Speak Accuton WaveGuide project.

Drivers:
Woofers: 2x Scan-Speak 22w/8857T00 (parallel)
Midrange: Accuton C173-6-090
Tweeter: Scan-Speak D3004/6640 mounted to a Jantzen Waveguide

Crossover:
Duelund with approximate crossover frequencies of 300Hz and 2150Hz

Details can be found linked below
Introducing the SSA-WG

It was quite the journey. It was my first design from scratch. I used Soundeasy for crossover design. Learned woodworking skills along the way.
They sound very good.

Here's a few pics.

Very nice job with the bamboo ply. What grade did you use?

Thanks Dave, I don’t think bamboo has a grade like Baltic birch...I could be wrong. I used 1” thick cross laminated vertical grain carbonized bamboo ply. There were some small voids on the edges I filled with epoxy. Hearing from others it’s kind of hit or miss on the consistency.

It does, it comes in horizonatl, vertical, and stranded varietes. I do not recommend the horizontal, probably not as good (but not as pretty) as good BB. Vertical is what i find most used, stranded thou is better by a long margin, and has a much tougher surface as far as collecting dings goes.

I used the vertical type and that's also what I have seen most used. It's very hard, you need good sharp tools. Really no dings during the build. Here's a few pictures. The top is stacked end pieces to highlight the bamboo ends. I find it an excellent material for speaker building.

Thanx,

We have used both vertical & stranded, the stranded is something else. The vertical is still very good.

Wow, that's some very fine looking joinery.

Compared to a lot of what I've seen here, fairly simple, but it gives me exceptional quality and stereo image, so I really do enjoy my music.

Pair of MTM speakers, custom designed, sealed for now (Q=0.84, IIRC). Based on Visaton W170S and SC10N, likely change to Peerless tweeters (can't remember which right now).

Source is a PC with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty, connected to my own design 330 W (4 ohms) via a lovely QED J2P.
