Hi Troels !
My name is Alexander and I live in Moscow
Russia. I would like to say how i appreciate all your activities in the
DIY speakers design ,acoustic research and self made electronic in the
5 years ago after long and unseccessfull
attempts to find the audio nirvana in the production range of speakers
i started to make speakers myself - begins with Fostex drivers in the
backload horns FE168 ,126 and 108 series - but i did not like it very
much. Next step was open baffle with 15 inch Altecs and M19 clones -
this was a little bit over the top for my room. For the last 2 years I
made 4 constructions from your site and all of them are sounded great.
The constructions are EEKELS MINI,AT-SW (slightly modified),CNO-2
(in the recalculated bookshelf box),W15CY001 + Hiquphon OWI. I also made
2 bookshelf construction from Klang und Ton magazine - also not in my
sound taste. All wood works and crossover assembly was made by myself .
For my ears W15 and CNO-2 sounded best in my room - others are also
excellent speakers - but sound little bit different.All construction not
finished yet - still compare them between each other - to select the
best and apply finishing .Off course they can not be compared to the
nice cabs in the photos of other builders on your site - but they sound
wonderfully. I am prepared for the next construction - ELLAM FLEX 2W
for the nearest future -already collecting parts for it - hopefully i
will finish it in summertime this year . I am attaching the picture of
my speakers - sorry for the quality - pictures was made by phone. Thanks
again for your sharing of this excellent designs and information
regarding DIY speakers and other components.
With respect, Best regards, Alexander
