Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum and new to DIY speaker building.


Went out on a limb and bought the Scanspeak B741 kit from Madisound and have nearly finished the cabinets.


I will post some progress pics shortly.


Anyone out there built this design? If so, can you tell me how it went/how it sounds.

Just want to say, after all of this, I have to conclude that you do NOT need to have a huge workshop. You only need the following: a good power saw (of which I have 3 but bought another one just for this build), a good router and LOTS of clamps. A table saw is not needed, as I discovered. A straight edge and some clamps actually gets as good a result with a hand held power saw cf. a table saw.


Still have not decided about finish guys. My thoughts are: 1) piano black, 2) natural veneer, 3) man-made veneer [which i think some of look quite cool].


What are your thoughts guys?

Just did an initial sand and put two coats of wood hardener on over the weekend. Next thing to do is fill all the small gaps with some sort of filler. Will wait another day or two before I do it.
