didn't realize small cabinets are much easier to build... Planet10 suggested the dimensions, and I use them as PC speakers with mainly near field listening. Unlike most of the drivers seen here, these are relatively cheap.

For their purpose with limited driver excursion sound very good. At high volume driven by t-amp clone, cones breakup, but to be expected. Good cabinet for the driver as PC speakers.

more details of the build here:

Take a bit to talk me out of those :) But anything is possible.

Not clear in the picture above is that these have corian tops. The top was choosen to compliment the "blue" stain. When blue turned to green (not the 1st time i've had that happen to me), i made drivers to suit.


*I have closeups of most of the other boxes too

uFonken in macassar ebony (correct me Chris if i have mangled the spelling). The veneer was 'gifted" to us and would qualify as exotic.

This particular pair of boxes have set more than a few people on their butts with open mouths.

uFonkenSET Prototype
A bit bigger then a uFonken, a base shape that is trapezoidal similar to the Mar-Ken12, and made of solid Locust. With the etra volume there is a bit more weight in the bottom. Amazing how they can fill a large room.

Here sitting on a Mar-Kel70.

The Mar-Ken12Ts are lovely... yes, and like Doorman, I'd like to know how they are soundwise. :)

Here's the Mar-Ken 7.3 I finished recently.

Very impressed with the sound. These are for a friend - I'm gonna miss these when he eventually takes them home. :)

The one that (almost) started it all. not the 1st, but the 1st really food. A set of FonkenPrime in maple.

Miter tops and bottoms, very nice work. I do have a pair, not as finished as these, but they sound great.

Starting up a new build soon, materials on hand.

Hey All,

Iíve been working 3 pairs, one new pair is completed but unfinished (pic 2).

I donít know if cutting dadoes in the top, bottom and back panels is
conventional wisdom, but I think it helps with the assembly.

Should have the tall pair finished soon.

They are fun to build and sound great!!

For our house build, i thot i'd see if the blue coned Alpair6.2p could change its colour. I was trying for purple, but i ended up maroonish... and Chris finished outr mules in a complementary manner. They look great and sound very good.
