  • Classix II Build: Disunion

    I've dabbled in DIY audio for the last year or so and have finally built a set of speakers that I'm truly proud of. Everything I've built so far has been designed by Paul Carmody, starting with the Overnight Sensations TM, followed by a couple pairs of OS TMMs, and now the Classix II. Paul and others like him are an absolute godsend for people like me. I'm a woodworker first and an audio enthusiast second, so I'm more than happy to have a real expert do the heavy lifting for driver selection and crossover/enclosure design so I can make their excellent designs look as good as they sound. And mother nature do these bad boys sound amazing. I've heard Paul likes white speakers, so hopefully these will halfway interest him.

    More pictures, some of which show partial completion of the build.

    Enclosure Materials:
    Top/bottom/sides: 3/4" red oak plywood, cut into strips and edge-glued (painful but turned out great)
    Baffles: 1" Poplar

    Minwax Jacobean stain
    Rustoleum Pearl Mist
    Watco Wipe-On Poly

    Wow, these look nice! Very interesting design. (Why am I reminded of a cow right now?)
    Don't worry, if your parachute fails, you have the rest of your life to fix it.

    Some people collect stamps, Imelda Marcos collected shoes. I collect speakers.:D

      And a test fit.

      I have to re-cut this baffle, it appears I fat fingered the woofer cutout by almost 1/4" Discord Adobe Reader iTunes .

      Sincerly, me.
