DIY Speaker Gallery - Show off your work

Post by meniscus » Thu Mar 19, 2015 4:18 pm

Once you've finished your project, post pictures here and then add a link to your build thread.

This will make finding a project much easier than searching the forum.

A little bass help for a little Jordan , configure for 4 ohm mono, or 8 ohm l/r single cabinet bass bin, with old Peerless Nomex HDS.
Corner loaded, very good bass, better pitch than a sub, but really only reaches 40 hz.

Wanted a sound bar, didn't want to spend much for good sound, so...
Found a reasonably priced Tannoy D series centre channel, re tasked my old Series 600 pair in orange shellac birch sealed cabinets.

Anthology – A new high performance budget friendly speaker d

Post by Jim Holtz » Mon Jun 01, 2015 6:27 pm

DSC_6752 (Large).jpg
What is an Anthology? The dictionary defines it as; a collection of selected literary pieces or passages or works of art or music. It also is the name of a very fine wine that my wife and I enjoy on special occasions. Anthology just seemed to be an appropriate name for this speaker.

The design goal for the Anthology’s was to create a full range, dynamic speaker in a smaller cabinet that offered both excellent music and home theater reproduction. The Anthology’s accurately reproduce your best musical recordings with a huge accurate soundstage due to the open back mid TL design and also fill the room with extremely dynamic movie reproduction when watching your favorite new action flick. They also pair perfectly with the center channel Curt and I designed for the Finalist’s for the front three speakers of a home theater system.

We did a lot of driver research and finally decided on SB Acoustics SB15 coated paper mids for their excellent low distortion sound quality and affordable price. We wanted a tweeter that would provide excellent sound quality with extremely broad dispersion, low distortion and an affordable price. The Seas 22TFF matched all of those qualities. Bass drivers are again the tried and true Dayton RS225’s. They provide an F/3 in the low 30’s in a WAF friendly cabinet size of 48”T x 11 ½”W x 15 ½”D.

Kits with complete plans are available here at Meniscus. http://meniscusaudio.com/anthologies-ba ... -1531.html

Finalist centre

Post by Tony Ray » Sat Nov 28, 2015 5:45 pm

All the way from down under a Finalist centre.
Great upgrade from the Paradigm Centre 3.
Thanks Meniscus for the great service and Jim and Curt for the design.
I used 25mm MDF for the box and a 32mm solid wood baffle with a shellac finish. Very happy.

Beautiful! The center is the foundation of a home theater system.

Enjoy!
