Enclosures of my TQWT
speakers were finished on last Saturday. They were made by a friend who
is a professional carpenter/custom furniture maker. He made a very nice
work. Base material is MDF covered by lightish ash wood. Front is
combined MDF with precovered furniture chipboard. Front edges are made
of solid ash wood. So this is a similar arrangement than what Troels
used but in a lighter color.
I used arrangement and suggestions of Troels
where it was possible in my case. I liked them and did not want to
invent the wheel again. I made a small gallery about the finished
speakers for friends - including the enclosures and your parts too:
Scews of the drivers are not finalized
because I am still looking for nice screws. I am not sure at the moment
if I want to use black or metal ones. I will decide.
I must say it is not easy to buy nice black
wood screws in Hungary.
Human voices, acoustical instruments and
sound stage are nice, better than on my previous speakers, although
there are just about 5-10 hours on these boxes until now. They seem to
be more honest than my previous ones were. So they are continuously
changing and developing. I expect stronger base and more balanced sound
after several weeks of usage.
At this moment I am using the TQWTs from a 5W
SE triode amp (it is my own design - I design and build electronics
myself). I will try some class A and AB PP solid state and hybrid stuff
in the near future too. I have 3 self-designed amps at the moment. I am
interested which one is the best choice for these speakers.
I will send you more photos after finishing
the assembling fully (screws...).
Thank you so much for this nice and easy kit!
