  • Trials and tribulations.. but in the end.. music

    Wowzers, this was a bit overwhelming. But, I got er done.




    And they sound good. I am a classic rock kind of guy, the first LP I listened to was Sgt.Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band.

    Nice.

    Congrats!!! Enjoy the music.

    After listening to them for a while please report back your impressions. Do they bring out things you never heard before. That was my first revelation after building my first DIY pair.

    The lowest possible F3 box alignment is not always the best alignment.

    Designing and building speaker projects are like playing with adult Lego Blocks for me.

      They look good Steven. We are very glad you did not give up on this. Everyone of us here has worked through this process. If guys like Wolf, Johnny, Paul, and Jeff (to quickly name a few) had given up we would be without a great wealth of designs, experiments, and knowledge. If you decide to build another pair, you will be able to take what you have gained here and apply it. Again glad you stuck it out.Now go enjoy the music!

        Nice job. Harder than it looks at first. Glad you stuck to it. Do you listen to those LPs a lot or a more modern source?

          Which build is this ? Looks like Paul's Dayton Classic Revival. Please more detail on how it sounds. I am thinking of doing the Dayton Classic Revival project and any info would be helpful. Enjoy the music !

              What I have found is what we already knew, LP's rock! CD's are ok too.
              Modern sources are just ok..

              Yep, they are the Revivals. And the sound is pretty good, LOTS of natural bass coming out these things, mids and tweeters are pretty damn fair.
              The only bit of info I can hand out is TRY to make your crossovers as small as possible. And also, the flat packs for these speakers are a real bitch to get squared, so if you have a corner clamp, use it.
