S5-Electronics-K12-Tube-Amp-Kit.JPGS-5 Electronics K-12 Tube Amplifier Kit5711 viewsThis is a S-5 Electronics K-12 Tube Amplifier Kit. I run a Cambridge Audio Azure 540C CD player into it and it feeds a pair of 70L 12" 3-ways - the classic '70's speakers - a kit from Macs Hifi ( no longer there) in Adelaide. They are very efficient as you would expect - and have been upgraded several times with new drivers and crossovers.

mURI_temp_630f4f06.jpgDIY Speaker Cable5683 viewsThis is DIY Speaker Cable that I made for a friend.
This is the regular twisted pair design with the double shielding. I've used the regular heat shrink tube for the primary shield and nylon braided sleeve for the secondary shield.

The ends are terminated via plastic banana pins.

Also, here is a pair of DIY Braided Speaker Cables that I made.

Tang-Band-D4-1-DIY-Back-Horn-Speaker-Kit.jpgTang Band D4-1 DIY Back Horn Speaker Kit5614 viewsThe fun and simple Tang Band D4-1 DIY Back Horn Speaker Kit. This little speaker kit comes complete with all the parts and tools required (minus a soldering iron). There is no cutting or finishing required (no saw dust or fumes!). The kit is very simple to build as it goes together just like ready-to-assemble furniture.

For a full review of this speaker kit, see: Tang Band D4-1 DIY Back Horn Speaker Kit.

Diaphony8~0.jpg"Diaphony's" An open baffle design5612 views"Diaphonys". A Dipole with a 10" separation between cabinets (21”w *18”h*6”upper cab) to direct reflected waves to the listener. Low distortion driver choices with a SB Acoustics 29RDC-0004 for highs, Usher Audio 8945A for mids, and an Eminence Alpha15A for lows (lower cab same as the upper but extened to 12” depth). These drivers work together nicely together with a 2nd order LR with the low end of the Usher rolling off naturally. Upper cab with a 8" cardboard tube to direct waves from the Usher from the back of the 6" wide speaker box depth to the reflected surface with minimal re-reflection to the back of the driver. I used a 6" diameter plywood rounded baffle ends to reduce diffraction losses and to improve off axis response. Claity SA Caps where important, Solen Fast Caps else where. Goertz inductors with Madisound Sledgehammer for the Alpha 15A. Balic Birch construction with Walnut veneer. The sound? I knew immediately when the SB and Usher were on just a 22" wide by 60" tall board I had made good choices. The cleanest mid I have ever heard. I'm sure there are better ones, but not by much. Voices that were unintelligible on other systems of recordings I know well became understandable - embarrassingly so. A wood block sounds like a real live wood block. I primarily used various tracks off Tania Libertad’s album “Costa Negra and Pacifika’s “Asuncion” for listening tests and crossover tweaking – two extremely well tracked and mastered albums to say nothing of the voices and talent. While listening to track 12 of Libertad’s album “Yo Venco A Ofrecer Mi Corazon”, in my listening area, it becomes to difficult point to speaker placement without visual cues. The Diaphony’s are large, they do need to be about 4 feet away from a back and side wall seem to be the only distracters. Many compliments at the recent Northern California DIY Audio meet outside of Sacrameno, CA.

Pure silver wire, gold connectors and silver solder are used throughout. Velcro pads hold the transformers in place. The step-up transformers are wired for 6 dB gain.
