  • New Speakers - New Source

    A few months ago fabricated a pair of Rediscovery II's, didn't know what I was going to do with them, but I knew I needed to update the 2-channel system.
    Talked the wife into a road trip to go look at streamers, which I didn't know much about. The HiFi shop had plenty on display - in various rooms. Great! We selected one. The sales team said you'll want to run a dedicated Ethernet line to the steamer; ok, ok, no problem. They also mentioned you'll want a good [internet] router, etc..
    It all went well, better than I thought, a few steps to set it up and thanks to youtube videos and our neighborhood has remarkable internet service.
    The sound stage is amazing, could cut it with a knife; close my eyes for a while and just drift off somewhere idk.
    This could be considered a kit build, plans are on-line.

    They measure beautifully and with a revelator mid-woofer have great bass!

      Beautiful work!
      I've always wanted to hear those Revelator drivers... maybe someday.

        Have you a link to the on-line plans?

        I have the 8 Ohm Revelator and am interested in this lovely looking speaker you have constructed.

          Thank you all for the feedback!

          Jazzman, I said the same thing about owning a pair, and never would have have until I worked with a customer that was using them in his designs.

          I didn't purchase the kit, I had xo components, only needed the drivers.
          [link removed]

          Attaching another pic, I'm liking this ploy than others that I have used in the past.
          A simple miter box, rabbit the back edge for 3/4" back and then simply blue-tape/glue the 4 sides all at once.
          This will only work if the panels are absolutely square and the long 45 degree bevels are cut accurately!
          After a few hours after gluing, remove the tape and use scrap 45 degree strips on the inside for corner reinforcement.
          The baffle is pieced together, on a 1/4" panel that fits inside the box - which is a full 1" once completed.
          [like a deep rabbit cut - without the cutting]
          The small strip between the side is banding tape and the wood end-grain is super smooth.
          Used the plastic flare ports; the connection tube cannot be seen (and still a 1/4" too long per plans).
          Since the xo's are somewhat large, the back is attached with screws.
          The wood strips sides are Teak.

            PE really doesn't like competing retailer links.

            Are the sides, etc. solid wood (maple?)? Very nice looking build.
