Audio speakers handmade from PVC pipes, each houses a Hi-Vi B3N 3 inch magnesium/aluminum alloy full range driver. Frequency response is 80-20,000. 3 way binding posts on back. The bass port is on the end of the 1-1/2 pipe/stand. Nice sound and a very good sound stage, lots of low end bass for a small speaker.

I had totally forgotten about this tube-speakers ... Recently I laid my hands on a pair of B3N, but planned to use them in a the muFonken-box. Guess I have to something with the upper 'diapason', so I am looking for a smallish tweeter that fits in the rather small box.

I could have thought of that this Summer when we drove through Madison (Madisound), but by that time hadn't bought the 3" HiVi yet.

hello ikymagoo and community memebers,

I am a college student who is into the DIY idea. I have made a plethora of things previously, mostly with PVC. Being a college student, money is a little tight. Do you have plans for this great speaker set online? A link I was following stated that there were step by step instructions but I can not seem to find them. I think this is a great idea, and would love to finally have a set of decent speakers. thanks in advance.

I picked up some PVC tubing at Lowes. Just had a couple of quick questions...

How did you actually mount the drivers? and how did mount the cross over?

Thanks,
Joe
