Jordan-JX92S-Sealed-Speaker.jpgJordan JX92S in Sealed Speaker Box6149 viewsThe Jordan JX92S Fullrange transducer in a sealed (acoustic suspension) enclosure. The box volume is 5.2L and a camphor burl veneer was used for the finish. I use these with no baffle step correction whatsoever and are mated with an 8" subwoofer from av123.

I am thinking of adding the Aurum Cantis ribbon tweeter to these

Ion_DIY_2-Way_TMM_Tower_Speaker.jpgIon - DIY 2-Way TMM Tower Loudspeaker6141 viewsThe Ion tower loudspeaker project is Adam's latest diy speaker project. The Ion is a 2-way speaker in a TMM configuration. A Tang Band 25-1372SC 1" inverted titanium dome tweeter is used along with a pair of Audax HM170CO 6" woven carbon fiber woofers.

The Ion speaker project will be a very challenging build but Adam notes that it comes with a huge payoff! The Ion tower speakers have quickly become Adam's favorite loudspeakers.

For the full project details, see the Ion - DIY 2-Way TMM Tower Speaker Project.

I have been listening to the preamp for two hours now and found it adds nothing to the sound (as a preamp should) and extends control with volume and balance adjustment. The yellow caps are 0.47 uF polypropylene metal film. Full details are available for this project at: DIY Op Amp based Preamplifier Project.

Seas-CA26RE4X-sealed-subwoofer.jpgSeas CA26RE4X 10-inch Sealed Subwoofer6075 viewsSeas CA26RE4X 10" subwoofer in a sealed 1.27 cubic ft cabinet. I used 3/4" maple plywood with mitered, biscuit-joined seams. The driver port was cut, then the lip routed, then scabs glued in with Gorilla Glue, then drilled and fitted with threaded caps. The rear panel was sealed with strips cut from a bicycle innertube as gasket material. Originally wanted to stain black black, but I think the natural wood grain really looks good.

The power transformer supplied with the K-12G kit seems to be slightly larger than those which were supplied with the S-5 Electronics K-12M Tube Amplifier Kits.

But output was low from the Pro-Ject SE phono preamp. LL1550 trannies supplied by K & K Audio and printed circuit boards allowed me to build a step-up kit in the wooden box the Grado cartridge came in. Compact and beautiful!

2_with_bigger_brother.jpgDIY Phono Preamp, Valve Preamp and Chipamp Monoblocks6028 viewsThis image shows the degree to which Paul has gone with an all DIY audio set-up. You can see all three main components. Also Paul made some Silver Highway, pure silver and heat-shrink interconnect cables. The Valve preamp (larger silver front enclosure) and Chip amp monoblocks are earlier builds of mine. He is also using OB speakers I built which have had serious Xover upgrades and also a sub-woofer of mine to compliment the OBs. This combo produces a phenomenal sounds stage image with exceptional detail and clarity.

6SN7-6L6-Tube-Amp-2.jpg6SN7-6L6 DIY Tube Amplifier5958 viewsThis amplifier uses a Williamson front end and phase splitter, with an ultralinear output stage. The valve lineup for each channel is a 6SN7 as first amplifier and phase splitter, followed by another 6SN7 driving a pair of 6L6s. Bias is set by active semiconductor current sinks. The 400V HT is generated by a double anode diode (5R4) driving a choke input filter. The audio output transformers are Hammond Manufacturing 1620s. Conservative rating of 20W per channel.

Fostex-FE206E-Double-Bass-Reflex-Speaker-Enclosure.jpg
Fostex-FE206E-Double-Bass-Reflex-Speaker-Enclosure.jpgFostex FE206E in Double Bass Reflex Speaker Enclosure5958 viewsThis is the simpler enclosure recommended by Fostex for their high sensitivity FE206E drivers. The large magnet and basket spokes of the driver have been covered with bituminous damping. The upper chamber has sound deadening vinyl across the back and the rest of the upper chamber has double layers of thick Dacron lining it. The boxes are fastened using dowels, glue and wood screws. A Speaker Zobel / Impedance Equalization Circuit is used across the driver terminals. The sound soundstage is pin-point sharp and with good depth. Bass is sufficient without being heavy. For under $AU500 these speakers represent very good value. With a sensitivity of 96 dB/W my 6 W Ultra-Linear Single-Ended valve amps can produce a high sound level.

For full details see the Fostex FE206En Double Bass-Reflex Speaker project page.

SV101783.JPGOpen Baffle Speakers - Front5931 viewsI had a very large sheet of 18mm particle board which had been sitting around for years. Also a pair of titanium domed tweeters and 2" domed mid-range surplus. What to do with them? With the addition of a pair of cheap but very robust 10" woofers and a 2nd order Xover (600Hz & 3.5kHz) I thought a may knock-up a pair of OBs.

I allowed one day to build these from scratch and with the assistance of some massive angle brackets and a few meters of darcon here is the result. That total height and depth of the speakers is covered in two thick layers of darcon leaving only the woofer rears bare.

The woofers are stiff and require many hours of play to get them to full performance. But the speakers have an excellent sound stage bright mids and highs. Bass is OK but not deep.
