Default Boenicke W5 clone

Last year at the Munich Fair I was impressed with boenicke w5, but unfortunately price is bigger than my limit , especially SE version
Since we have design studio and 2 CNC machine (for other purpose) I tried to do it something similar, but way is more than complicate since need to make holes on 3 different side s
No meter, if not counting our time, material, drivers, crossover and rest is almost 20 percent of price of W5SE
After I test it, sound is more than awesome
Here is couple pict from production process
BTW my workmates is also make pair for him, and we order material for one pair for our office :-)

It would be nice to see some measurements, and xover scheme..
I saw measurements for original speaker which are disgusting..

I have a doubt about the hype of this nice looking little desktop-speaker. Overpriced at least it is...

Vulejov, you have your opinion, but don't be surprised if you are in the minority.

You would do well to have a bit more respect for the work of others.

The original is very expensive - more than I would pay.

The clone looks very nice. It makes me want to contact a local CNC shop for my own ideas

entonis, did you make the blanks (the glued-together slabs of wood) yourself? Was the wood well aged? How have you sealed the wood from moisture?

If you are making another pair, perhaps consider making it with non-smooth inner walls, like the attached picture.
