Sorry for taking so long to get these to you.
Friends of mine had pitiful 'speakers', and I call them that to be kind.
As a gift to them I built them a set of your Nomex 164's. I've built
them as 40L, using 25mm mdf, glued and screwed. Friends decided on full
coverage (front back sides top) with Queensland Walnut veneer. Soon they
will have black grills to help protect against the little fingers that
they will soon have in the house. I painted the driver openings black to
help hide the small gap between driver and timber. They are finished
with 4 coats of gloss 'wipe on poly'. Just enough to seal the timber yet
still retain the look and feel of the timber grain.
They only used 1 sheet of mdf, and 1 of veneer, making them budget
friendly speakers with a final build cost around Au$1,300. Make no
mistake, they need breaking in. Once they have though. Wow.
On a small 25W class A amplifier, they fill a 6m x 7m open lounge room
with great ease and far more bass than expected. I can't think of a
thing they do wrong.
My friends love them, and others that have heard them can't believe the
fullness and clarity that comes from such a small package. Troels, Thank
you for your dedication to your hobby.
