I couldn't think of anywhere else to introduce myself so, here we go. A couple things I've built:
Steampunk aesthetic, using copper/bronze/steel, green felt baffle facing, JSD 8 ohm 5.25" coaxial drivers. Hidden chamber vented alignment, whatever that's called in the serious engineering world. I'm not serious.
Everything's scrap, I think I have 20 bucks in actual purchased parts (nails, glue, paint, etc) I call them "Earl Grey"
I call these "Takenobu" as I found myself listening to Nick Ogawa a lot while tuning them. 4" MTX automotive drivers from a buddy's car, 3" Poop Pipe Port® and some sexy fishnet material held away from the drivers with drawer pulls. I may have spent upwards of $40 on this pair.
Oh, and here's some sillyness I built for work a few months ago
(that's a 12" driver for scale)And here's what I look like in a sombrero
So.. uhh.. I don't really take this hobby seriously, I take fun seriously and then sometimes build speakers when I'm bored. I've been reading several of the very talented & meticulous builds on here for quite a while & figured it's time to join in case I ever want to comment or ask so.. howdy. Or whatever
