  • Amiga build in Walnut Veneer

    Thought I would share this Amiga build that I did as a wedding present for my niece. Since I first started building speakers a few years ago, the Amiga was one that I always wanted to build and I sure wasn't disappointed! Great sounding speaking in a great looking package! My wife didn't even want to let them leave the house!

    Here is the finished product but I'll post a build thread in following posts for those that want to see the details.

    Started by cutting all the panels, cutting rabbets and window braces. All done in 3/4 MDF as per Mr. Carmody's instructions (except his uses butt joints, I adjusted for rabbets)

      Next up was routering the cutouts and test fitting the drivers. Jasper circle jig and rabbet bit does the job nicely

        I wanted to add a couple dowels as braces but I messed up cutting the holes. I made them identical instead of mirror images. So filled them with the dowel, cut it off with a hand saw and redrilled the holes. Good place to make a mistake as no one will see it (except here ;)

          For the mitres, I just ran them along the router table with the 45 degree bit.

            Tried a new approach to putting this all together. Gorilla tape the seams, add glue, fold all together and clamp like crazy (not shown)!

              To make the removable back, I ran a rabbet along the inside of the back panel

                      Special thanks to ethosunum for the PCB crossover boards. Nicest boards I've ever soldered! Just wish I remembered to take a picture from the top (look at ethosunum's posts, my inductors were a bit bigger so hung off the edge more).

                          cutouts were first painted black (to hide imperfections) and walnut veneer added with contact cement, acoustic foam cut and glued in with spray adhesive, driver hardware painted black

                            3D printed these feet. drilled and counter sunk screws from bottom to hold in place, added some none slip foam and trimmed with exacto knife. Like how these came out, may have to retrofit some onto my OSTMMs.

                            That's it for build pics! Finished product pics in post #1! Hope this was helpful.
