    Kenrick Sound sells them restored from time to time, prepare to let your wallet take a beating or two

    JBL 4350.
    You can look for info on Altec or JBL forums but this speaker is not easy to find and very expensive.

    They are an all Accuton build right down to the PR's, and actively XO'd by DSP's. Skip to about 1:20 if you want to skip him showing off all his equipment:

    Live and learn. They sounded magnificent.



    I will. Pics were posted then PE had 96kbt limit for jpg. Thanks for the comment also.
    My bad I was referring to the previous post, that ENORMOUS pic of the Speedsters

    The front of those baffles look like they are a 3D hand carved detail. Beautiful work, r-carpenter!

    Not sure where I found these pictures but if anyone has any information on them, it'd be great to know.

    ShinOBIWAN's speakers and subs are some of the finest DIY work I have ever seen, the driver's were expensive as well. The last I heard he was starting his own company in the UK so I wish him a ton of success.

    Someone has already mentioned it but I agree that PassingInterest's builds are always top notch. He just has a style and craftsmanship that is a genuine talent, he also has a knack for teaching as well, wish he had a TV show.

    This one is the best pic I have, taken at DIY Iowa 2010. Thanks for the vote. :o

    After being asked, "why did you make it ugly" by another forum member recently, your post just goes to show, everyone has an opinion.

    I happen to share yours. I really need to finish them with a nice plinth.

    Nice photo Pete.....nice veneer work!
