Here I did a bit of recycling. I took an old beat up pair of Wharfedale Airedale cabinets.

Stuffed with JBL 2220 pro woofers, JBL LE-175 HF compression driver, H91 conical horn and H94 bent plate lense. I now had complete speakers. I used these for about a year but they were lacking some high end sizzle I was looking for. So, I sold them to a buddy in Austin for $900 (cost of the drivers) and moved on to my next set of DIY horns.

Very nice work. Quite the contrast when looking at the first photo and the end result.
Cheers

Kind of like watching HGTV and being able to see the potential in something.
