  • Lithium - My take on a Scott Sehlin Design

    I mentioned this build in another thread and realized I never posted pictures. This was my first home speaker build in maybe 20 years, spending most of my past on custom car audio. I wanted a small desktop/bookshelf and somehow arrived at Scott Sehlin's Lithium.

    The only major deviations from Scott's design is a rear mounted woofer and externally mounted crossovers. Crossover parts look cool (at least to me) so I prefer to display them when possible.

    And here is my current garage setup. An old 90s Pioneer 100 disc player, Yamaha HTR-5730, and a pair of Yamaha NS-BP300 - not exactly a "reference" speaker but a decent bookshelf for comparison duty (and the best bookshelf speakers I had lying around)

    I still have a 100 disc Pio-filer as well! Still works great too!

        how did you construct the back panels to have such a perfect fit even with the rounded corners?

          Router table for rear board, ran against fence. Inset is done with a rabbet bit of same radius.

            The black and yellow contrast looks cool

              That would be the smart way

              Half of that is right - the enclosure is made of 3/4" MDF so I used a 1/2" rabbet bit to make the recess for the back panel. Then I cut the back panel 1/8" shorter and narrower than the opening, used a circle template to draw a 1/2" radius on all the corners, and used my stationary disc sander to round the corners manually, checking for a good fit. With the paint on it closed up the 1/16" gap a bit and makes it look like I know what I'm doing

                I really like a black/yellow combo. These will get my Dukk logo in black on the sides when I get around to airbrushing them on.

                  Some HiVi "F" drivers would look pretty cool.
