It is very good. I might goes as far as to say stunning. They have a warm and liquid midrange. Open almost ethereal. They image perfect and give more a sense of realism. I'm very happy with the outcome.

Here is the setup in my vintage room.

cheezit73, you have the port facing the wall? I have never followed horn loaded sub designs, but it seems like it should be facing the other way.

Scott I don't know what's right or not, I read a few f20 related posts that mentioned facing the wall. I have not had time yet but am going to experiment with facing it out and seeing how it compares.

Cheezit,

Beautiful build!

You have it the correct way. Not sure how close you have it to the wall though. I know that for the THT it's best to have the mouth about 18" away from the wall. Check with Mike or even Bill Fitzmaurice for details.

Beautiful build!

How do they sound?

I was thinking of building a pair myself; How much MDF did you use?
post #971 of 1121
They sound amazing to me. For the price and the size, this is a lot of speaker.

No MDF. Just Baltic Birch. The link in my post above has more info.

Forgive the stupid question: Will i need a soldering iron for cross-over assembly?
post #977 of 1121
Yes a soldering iron is VERY helpful.

They look OUTSTANDING!

Those look really industrial Vinculum, very cool.
post #982 of 1121
Thanks guys. I was going for the industrial look! They hide behind a screen, so you really don't see them.

This is my my 4.3 cubic foot vented enclosure I made for the 12 inch RE Audio SE-x and a 240 watt Dayton plate amp. Not exactly pretty to look at, but this is my first time doing any sort of finish on an enclosure, so it's to be expected. I had more pictures, but I seem to have deleted them, this is all I have left. These were all taken with my phone, so excuse the blurriness.




The RE Audio SE-x 12D2.




This is the internal bracing. Made from 3/4 inch MDF. The baffles were made from 2 3/4 inch boards glued together to make 1.5 inch baffles. With the exception of the bracing (I cut those out myself) all the wood was cut to precise measurements at the lumber yard for no extra charge.



Don't bash the wallpaper, lol. It's a rental house and we aren't allowed to change it.
The finished enclosure. I told you it wasn't pretty. There is some damping material on the rear baffle. The port is tuned to 29hz. It also has inch and a half toe spikes.



The amp is mounted on the rear of the enclosure. It is receiving an amplified signal from my Kenwood M2a.

All together, this project cost me somewhere around $400. I'm not sure exactly, I'd have to dig up my receipts to get the exact cost. But it was somewhere in that region.

ninetalesnwf, there are simple photo editing software or (even using Photobucket) to resize your images. Makes it much more user friendly on forums. I generally never post anything on a forum that is wider than 1000 pixels.
post #986 of 1121
fixing the size problem now, sorry about that.

Bit rushed to get out the door, didnt look after posting

will have to wait till i get home, im synced into my cell phone for internet Bit slower haha

These are amazing. I had no idea making speakers from scratch could be added to the ever growing list of DIY projects! Not only that, but these speakers (at least by appearance) look legit! They look like something you would have to buy from a fancy store. Plus I'm sure the effect they have in the room make it so worth it.
post #988 of 1121
Im new to this section of the forum though i have come over a few times to look at the diy projects which i really find interesting . There are some amazing home built speakers here. I myself dont have a woodshop to speak of but did manage to build myself a center channel.Most of the work was done at the shop where i work and the rest on the kitchen table.Just beforre christmas I bought myself some floor standers and they came with the wrong drivers,the manufacturer sent out new drivers and let me keep the old ones. With all these on hand i decided to build a new center channel. I used REW and X-over 3 to design the crossover . I am still waiting on my veneer to show up but thought i would share what i have done so far.



















Now vennered ,stained and poly
