built by JanK/Canada
Built your 3 way classic with Solen components and as you
suggested the vent port in the back of the enclosure same
hight as the midrange but opp side of the box Cross over
outside the box,too cute to stick in a box, components
mounted on lexan plate and all the coils the
correct distance apart.
Thanks for your design.
The speakers? You have heard this so many times, but here
it comes again. Thanks for a new collection of music All
those little details I never heard for the last
40 years. WAF is 100%. PMS is probably next when $ are
Life is good Jan K - in the middle of nowhere (front yard
afternoon Mr Gravesen
You asked for an
image of the work in progress of the classic 3 way This is one of the two stands for
the speaker , and as you suggested , with no extension of
the front baffel ,stand top tiltable plus minus 5 degrees Am working on the final speaker boxes
,this time made from birch plywood and finished with a
raw silk grill A familie member , prof audio
mixer for over 25 years , had only one thing to say
about them I want that pair , and when I
asked for the reason, he said that they gave him an
image of the space the music was performed in Everybody else, including people with vast
sound systems, were blown out of their socks by the
sound Sorry , I'm not an audio critic
so no veiled imaging or velvety smooth twinkeldings here
My compliments and thanks again for the design, Jan K.
Here is the result of my improvisation of your wonderful
Had a spike
around 40-70 hz in the original plywood speakers and
didn't know if it were the speakers or the room
(according to a room accoustics website I had the worst
possible shape------> width and depth twice the hight
of the room) with a tile floor facing the kitchen.
At elevated levels it was like sitting in an pipe organ
while a Buxtehude fuge was being played.
Made the volume of
these final speakers 3 liters bigger (box 2 cm
longer and the midrange from 1.5 to 1.7 L
volume to try out diff volumes (Sand
bags inside the box to reduce vol) To
my surprise I didn't have to adjust anything and
the low range sounds now perfect ?? Wish you and your family a fine christmas
and a good new year.
Thanks again Jan K
