Hard to say. We haven't tried either of these materials. I did look at some laminated Eucalyptus shelving i saw at Home Depot with an eye to building speakers.

If you know what you are doing with solid wood you can build a very nice sounding speaker.

Just keep in mind the width of blanks that would be required for the 4 side panels

I was wondering about price and availability of the MK3 Flat paks? I saw something like $270 on the original page but that was awhile ago.

And if I could be a complete pain for a second. Do you sell flat packs of any of the other models? I am going to be putting it in a huge room, basically its a open floorplan type setup and I think a 8" driver would be more suitable with the extension of a TL.

Thanks for you help, I tried PM'ing or I could just email your site if you would prefer, thanks,

-Ed

FH3 flat-paks are $290 USD/pr. Usually there is a queue, but we are near the 1st of a fresh batch so i actually have stock.

We are slowly ramping up production of Frugel-Horn XL flat-paks ($390 USD/pr). We have shipped a few of those.

We will do special orders for larger flat-oaks but shipping becomes a major complication. They are too large to ship by Canada Post so it means a courier. That is more expensive and would require customs clearance at your end.

How big is your room?

Feel free to email me anytime, i have the forum PM system turned off.

Flat-pak $290 USD + $87 insured post.

Matched/treated drivers are also available & will cost more.

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if/where the Frugel-Horn Mk3 flat pack kits can be purchased in Australia?

I'm guessing shipping from the states will be way to much.

If not is there a CAD plan, or drawing so I could look at getting it cut locally?

Cheers

Last question 1st: plans on the plans page The Frugel-Horn. Native VectorWorks, or DWG/DXF exports of individual pages can be requested.

No FH3 flat-pak makers yet in the US. Ours come from Canada.

Oz flat-paks from Ben at Sound with Style.SOUND WITH STYLE

Yeah I noticed that after posting, I will keep it in mind.
I have tried to contact Ben, however he hasn't replied yet. I will wait and see if he gets back to me, or I will look at just building a set.
