  • Partially Complete - Wayne 4pi Speakers (Washington DC Metro Area only)

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to sell a partially complete 4 Pi Build.

    I've abandoned the project mid-way. I was building a set for my parents and, as I got closer to completion, my brother ended up gifting them the pair that I gifted him several years back.

    I was contemplating completing the project, but I hit a snag. One of my JBL 2226H driver "buzzes" at low frequency (120hz and less). It may be the dust cap, it may be the coil. Don't know, but I don't plan on sinking any more money into the project.

    I currently have the following:

    Pair - 4Pi Cabinets - built with 18mm Baltic Birch Plywood - the enclosures were built taller and the horns were centered for aesthetic purposes. No standing wave issues with the tall cabinet - this was verified via impedance sweep and close mic measurements. The enclosures were heavily braced and were finished with water-based poly.

    Pair - Wayne 4pi Horns

    Pair - Denovo DNA-360 compression drivers (apparently a direct clone of the DE250)

    One working JBL 2226H driver, the other included for recone purposes.

    Not sure what is a fair price, but I was thinking $400 for all of the above?

    I figured a used pair of Wayne horns will sell about $60ish, the Denovo drivers around $120-ish, a single JBL around 150-ish, plus free second 2226H assembly for recone, and here is to hoping $80 for a pair of completed cabinets with terminal cups + sound insulation, etc. is not unreasonable.

    No crossover components are included - but schematics are available directly from Wayne at no charge. I also had my own take on crossover because I thought about voicing them slightly differently than Wayne (not better - just different) - I can share that with interested parties.

    Such a shame - you did some nice work here - and for a worthy cause.
