I made this pair from an old pair of Pioneer speakers with damaged cabinets that i bought on the flea market.

I added a 4 inch woofer i found and made a hornreflexsystem for them with a Karlson-like wide mouth.

Most of my materials i get from the scrapyard like the wooden plates or crossoverstuff from old speakers.
Here i used a sheet of flexible mdf to make the two dancing ladies.
Finally i casted a traktrixhorn-shaped waveguide for the tweeter from plaster.

It is a lot of experimenting and measuring that way, but the sound ist clear and horn-like fast.

So i'm ok with the sound and the ladies like the design.

Happy new year and saludos de Espana
Excellent work

Default Horns

My system - in constant evolution since 20 years:

All horn-loaded (except the subs):

Peavey FH-1 bass horns with Klipsch K33 woofers (probably Eminence Kappa 15C in the near future)
EV SM120A mid horns with John Allen A55G drivers
Beyma CP25 tweeters

Focal / JM Lab SW900 Electra + SW38A active subs

Active crossover - analogue - 400Hz/24dB; soon is gonna be 60Hz 24dB as well
Passive 2nd order between mid and tweeter

global sensitivity 104dB/w

Fully modded Yamaha CX-1 preamplifier (all capacitors upgraded; all values <10uF lytics replaced with Wima MKS2)

Low power mini class D amps

Revox B226 used as drive; SMSL SU-8 DAC; VanDenHul integration ICs and QED speaker cables

Nice hornsystem, Rolox!
Just as a preview, see my just received midbass horns and you might know what's next: Avantgarde Trio, watch out!

When building the speaker cloth frame I wondered how to attach it effectively and easy, I read about 3d printers and saw they used magnetic ball joints, I figured that four ball joints would work, and it did it connects strong, might be an idea for other builders.
