I realize I'm digging up an old thread but I was wondering if you still had your Tang Band W8-1772's and if you ended up finishing them? What did you finish them in?

Hi Scott, welcome to the forum.

Are you also working with these drivers? Also, be sure to check out Jim's work with these drivers: Tang Band W8-1772 bookshelf speakers.
Cheers

I'm not working with them but am intrigued by them. I can buy them for a very good price and they look like SWEET drivers! I'd really like to hear a set ... I did see Jim's work as well, both here and on Parts Express :D Sweet looking bookshelves! The biggest problem I have with some of the single driver setups is that its so hard to hear some of them locally!

Too bad you don't live in the Wisconsin area! I took a chance and bought these without hearing them. What convinced me to buy them without a listen was comments by Bob Brines.

Bob builds speakers as his Hand Built Audio business and offers the TB W8-1772 as kits, plans or ready built. Bob made extensive measurements, listening tests and posted the data here: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/full-ran ... sions.html

I highly recommended them.

I read that whole thread and that's what got me thinking about those drivers. Good to hear that Bob's advice, measurements and designs are well respected. I've thought about the TT-2000 (I think that's the Tang Band version of them) towers. I like towers :D

The Tang Bands are a fading memory. I had too many speakers sitting around the house and offered four pairs for sale at my cost-to-build. The TB's were the first to go. I never did apply a finish to the enclosures. Also, I regret to say I was unsuccessful in my effort to addict young Uriah to baffle step correction filters. He returned all the inductors to me and continues to lead an exemplary BSC-free life.
