Looks sweet!! Which horns are those on top?


These are Klipsch Jubilee clones.

Bass bins have 2: K31, 12in woofers per cabinet.

The horn is a K402 with the Faital HF-200 for the compression driver.

Thanks P D

If you ever get a chance to hear a pair, make the time to do so.

I built these without ever hearing a pair, I am happy with the way mine sound!

Tannoy Type 3145 SuperDual drive units, 100 Hz to 22 kHz in 50-70 litre cabinets probably with 12 dB/oct. Butterworth or Linkwitz-Riley crossovers

I will use the active crossovers built into a pair of Lab-Gruppen IPD2400 power amplifier for the LF to MF transition @ 100 Hz.

Bass driver(s) yet to be determined. The challenge is to get the sensitivity of the LF section as close as possible to that of the MF/HF section—that is, around 97 dB— while at the same time attaining an f3 of 32 Hz and a cabinet volume of 200 L or smaller.

Hoffman's Iron Law intrudes as it always does.

Candidates include:

TAD TL-1601b
Tannoy 3834GG
Meyer Sound X-400C
Acoustic Elegance TD12H (2 drivers per side)
BMS 12S330 (2 drivers per side)

Why the self-inflicted 200L limit?

I am designing and building a new 'stereo stand' to hold all my equipment that has outgrown current stand.
It will also be holding vinyl and be speaker stands all in one.

The ultimate stand for my VPI TNT; built from 1" MDF, in locking layers because it will weigh much more than the TT itself.

I built a pair of Super Pencils.
I can relate to how long it's taking you to finish them.
Mine were built using MDF.
I don't think I ever made more holes and dealt with more sawdust in my life.
Good luck getting them finished.

Please keep us posted. I think there are Raspberry Pi-based Squeezebox Touch clones out there too.

I just bought a HiFi berry kit...because of these threads-lol

Spent $180...curious to see if it will replace my Intel NUC with Windows 10 and JRiver.

RuneAudio software is free and looks good with a nice GUI, for under $200 bucks :shock:

Will post pics.

Nice thread...thinking about a subwoofer kit too...active speakers with DSP...so little time.

I make my own Power Cords, and cables - I have made my own speakers - it's all great fun
