Current and future DIY projects
« on: 16 Jan 2017, 11:10 am »
Hello,
the first project of my DIY loudspeakers i have served Ti6k- JBL. My first contact with
them, was in distant 2005.
I started working with them in 2009 and finished in 2012.
The loudspeakers are "SEAS"- Excel / Tw-1”, Mw-5”for center 2х 5.5”,Bass-8,5”/ and cross-over parts- "Intertechnik".
Have are some pictures, if there is interest, i will continue.
Regards!

THERE IS INTEREST!  :lol:

I see DIY projects like these; have great fantasies about making something as beautiful as your speakers, but I always crash back to Earth once I remember my carpentry skills.  :roll:

Reading about others' exploits gives me a nice warm fuzzy feeling though!  :thumb:

Beautiful work!

I assume you used burl veneer and I'm intrigued how you got it so well blended in the corner radii.  If they sound as good as they look, it's a beautiful thing  :thumb:

No, not burl  It is "Birds maple",

Now go, how they made the speakers:
First did this "home-matrix"....
On fire therein 8 layers / 4mm / MDF.
The result is two such shells ...



Follows; assembly of the structure veneering veneer 'Birds' maple' toning and everything else ....

Fantastic carpentry skills and great looking speakers.  Who designed the crossover for you?

Аll my design. Everything is done by my hands.This Is the technical parameters:
Nominal impedance- 8 Ohm
Freguency Range 30Hz-20kHz
Characterstic Sensitivity(2,83V/1m)- 87db
Long Term-110W

S Clark:  Tell us more about how you got that finish!

Thanks for the good evaluation!
Auto acrylic varnish, high scratch resistance and UV protection. The last thing is done is polishing with polishing paste 3M- numbers from 1 to 3.
I have used Italian, Spanish varnishes, but I'm most pleased with the Polish. American products can hardly speak / for obvious reasons /.
Regards!

Stunning craftsmanship with an elegant design, very beautiful.  Do you have surround speakers built as well?

Wow, can you say inert cabinet.  That is one solid piece.  What do you anticipate the total weight to be when finished?

Really really impressive.

And I bet they look even better in person, pictures usually don't really capture how good a nice finish looks.

Wondering how you did the veneering?
I would guess vacuum because of the curves.

Do not use vacuum presses. Flex material on my way / see above in the post /.
