    Sure will! I love building speakers, so getting $300 to do something I love is like Christmas morning.

      Re: Deewan's various speaker builds

      Not that I'll change my mind as I already have goods for the statements, but as an overall better speaker would you choose the statements or the 4t? Might be a stupid question as you own the 4t. What were the statements missing that caused you to sell? I was fairly narrowed to those two but chose the statements because I couldn't afford to throw down a load of cash at once like is needed on the 4t. I was able to buy in sections.

        Center Speaker Stand - Mahogany inlay with hand rubbed copper paint (pictures do not do this finish or color justice). Added Wii sensor bar to bottom of speaker to hide it from sight.




        deewan,

        How can I get hold of the drawings (dimension) and xover schematic of that awesome center channel speaker that you build with 4 woofer 2 mid & 1 tweeter.
        Thanks

          fredasiong - that design is a kit from Clearwave Loudspeaker Design. Jed designed it and he did a wonderful job. I've dealt with him on several occasions and he is a pleasure to deal with!

          Here is a link to the design: http://clearwaveloudspeaker.com/Dynamic/4CC.html

            A minimum order is drivers and crossovers, but I would not have a problem breaking up the kit into installments as long as the crossovers arrive in the last shipment (just for reference for anyone else interested in my kits). I should put that info someplace on my website as it has been a common question lately.

              Thanks, that is good to know, unfortunately I already have all I need for the statements except the tweeters. The 4T is a scary looking speaker, probably one of the best I've seen as visuals go.

                  Tapeease.com carries wilsonart laminates, I've used them in the past for non-speaker projects. They might possibly have the worst-designed website ever.

                    I ordered 4 8"x10" FREE samples from Wilsonart a few hours ago. I've got some plans for it, maybe it will work out.

                      Re: Deewan's various speaker builds

                      Deewan, I have the older 4Ts and 4CC that Jed used as prototype; I absolutely LOVE them! They have the XT25 instead of the Scan Speak tweeter. I am very fortunate to live about 15 minutes from him

                      I really can't speak volume enough for Jed and his operations. I can't see myself dealing with anyone else as far as speaker kits go unless I divulge into designing my own speakers (which won't be for some time).

                        15 minutes from Jed? LUCKY! I would love to meet him and pick his brian about things. Although, not sure what I could ask and not sound like an idiot.

                        I agree, Jed's communication, style, and product make it difficult for me to consider even trying anything else that doesn't have his name attached to it. And I love my Dynamic's. Finally starting to really sing after being broken in for a few months now.

                          Hey Deewan,

                          Did you make the outriggers or buy them, If you bought them, where? They really set off the look of your speakers.

                          Thanks in advance!
                          Remember, the outside of every silver lining is a cloud.

                              On the topic of the laminate, can that go around a radius?

                              I think I have told you elsewehere, but man those speakers are all gorgeous.

                              Feel free to pour me a rocks of CR there Dee. I'm just finishing up a bottle of Crown Royal Limited Edition. A bit different from Crown Royal, smoother, not as hard bodied... but not improved enough for me to get back up to Canada for it.....
