    [​IMG] The idea of hand-made/ DIY / loudspeakers was born in me, when I saw the model of JBL-tI6K . The design and fabrication of these unique shapes are made by a Danish designer. The pyramidal shape of the speakers is generally denied by the DIYers, or at least for the most part, but I decided at the moment that's my loudspeaker design..
    If there is interest in the topic, I will continue.

    Thanks for sharing. Great skill there.

    I'd welcome the OP to offer more on this.

    I for one would like to hear more about these speakers... the build and finish is obviously spectacular for DIY, but I'm more interested to know about the design.

    The angle of the tweeters is driving me crazy

    They do look amazing and very hard to do as a DIY project. I can also see a lot of similarities with the JBLs that inspired you. What drivers did you choose? any details about the innards? How heavy are they?

    Gentlemen, thank you for your attention to my project!
    In order to save time, I will allow myself a clarification:
    -Everything in this project-idea, design filters the overall workmanship of the cabinets to the last detail was done by my hands.
    I'll show you, how I made these speakers, supported with photos and with detailed information as possible. This project is a long time ago and some of the stages during their construction , I can not show them - I do not have the necessary material, but what is available, I suppose will be enough to provoke your interest.
    At first, I had to figure out how to bend MDF plates. In the internet now has a very detailed material on how this process is being carried out with complicated multi-operative press mashine, but 2009 this information was scarce and irrelevant to me because, its clear I can not make a similar device at home.
    For this purpose, I made this "Home Matrix" for the center and front speakers;[​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    On these matrices I bended 8 layers of 4mm MDF. The adhesives I've used will be discussed at a later stage;
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I have no idea what the post limit is, so I'll stop at this point.

    The post limit is governed by how much you want to post and how much interest there is in your project log to inspire you to keep posting.

    Splitting the project into highly detailed bite sized chunks will continue piquing people's interest.

    Thus far the verdict appears to be

    "Carry on, kind sir."

    I'm a little curious - I've just stumbled across your thread at ASR, and a quick Google shows that you've shared this in at least 3 other places.
    How on earth did you end up here? This isn't exactly a high-traffic DIY forum...

    I don't mean to discourage you from posting about it here, there's interest and so it seems entirely appropriate to share if you enjoy doing it!

    10 images per post I believe. Awesome result, they look fantastic. They would never fit in my room due to their shear size. A lot of work obviously.

    I regularly make posts with more than 10 images. I usually write those posts in notepad though, with IMGUR links.

    10 image limit on OCAU hosting maybe? But I think with OCAU hosting it seems to have a limit of posts per day containing images, if that makes sense?

    I can drag a pic into a post and make it work but if I come back on the same day and try to add another it won't do it and I have to use IMGUR links.

    If I wait till the following day I can drag a new pic (or pix) into the old post though.

    The lack of stats/specs-type details in this thread is absolutely killing me.

    Regardless, those are fucking sexy mate. Nice job.

    I guess you are no longer interested in design, but in;


    You haven't put in enough effort, I've registered in over 20 DIY-Audio Forums, with the same post. For many people / I exclude you / it was useful, I have helped enthusiasts with my experience.
    Really, what are you doing in my topic?

    Thank you!
    It turns out that; "This isn't exactly a high-traffic DIY forum..." quote from Seekerr and I want to see if he's right. According to the number of responses from members in this forum and in my topic - yes.
    Of course, I will finish the topic, here is some information;
    The loudspeakers are "SEAS"- Excel / Tw-1”, Mw-5”for center 2х 5.5”, Bass-8,5”/ and cross-over parts- "Intertechnik".
    Nominal impedance- 8 Ohm.
    Range 30Hz- 25kHz.
    Characteristic Sensitivity(2,83V/1m)- 87db.
    Long Term- 110W

    I think you need to check your entitlement, and how you have viewed of the intent of the post in question.

    The long term member literally said.....
    This is a discussion forum, not a dick sucking contest.
