  1. Would be great for my shed system but too far away! Someone should do well with this.
  2. Michael Brown of Audiosphere fame (spherical concrete speakers) - well, some fame anyway, is also a fan of simple crossovers I'm told. Then there's your Linkwitz fans who go for more bits and pieces and get great results too. But there are always trade-offs, which Ralph talks about.
  3. It's simple and it works if you do the listening before deciding which drivers really get along together. It's actually a part of the process I enjoy a great deal, I call it "the casting couch"! You might like to read about crossovers and other things on my website, a page called "Speakers Corner" where my mate Ralph Waters had quite a bit to say about speaker design.

  4. I pulled these drivers out of my existing stock. Basically there's just an inductor on the woofer, nothing on the midrange (which is in its own little enclosure), and a capacitor on the tweeter.
  5. Here are the 10" three-ways I started last week. Sounding excellent, with minimalist crossover components due to careful assessment of compatibility before starting the build. I build for the interest/thrill of it, not for profit, using my stock of drivers that have been busy breeding under the house. There's another project requiring my urgent attention and some cash, so these will go on sale very soon. More details will be in the For Sale notification.
  6. Item: Cabinets for Dynaudio Contour 1.1 speakers Price Range: $100 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I have a working pair with a fair bit of cabinet damage that I'm going to try to fix up cosmetically, but it mightn't go well. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  7. Spotted Gum panels from Bunnings - they also do a nice thick Merbau just need a bit of oil to finish them off. The Beech is nice, but I found not suited to oil finish - it drinks the stuff like a four-armed sailor and asks for more.
  8. OK, early shot of current build, 10" three way.
  9. "So, anyone with some interesting DIY projects they’ve got going at the moment?... " Yep. Halfway through a 10" three way speaker build, latest in my building as therapy series! Should finish them next week (some time) and will have a story and photos for you then.
  10. As a retirement hobby I build speakers, with no analytic devices apart from my ears. It's a challenge which combines woodwork with some basic electronics, and experimenting with various drivers and configurations. An extensive record and CD collection, plus streaming, gives me plenty of material to run through the candidates and the finished products for fine tuning. The acid test is always “ are we having a nice time yet?” What have I learned after some years of doing this? 1. Better judgement of what might be needed, such as a slight adjustment of a resistor value, or c
  11. Further information: Classic old item - I don't think Fred used it - kept it in a display case with other cameras - shutter seems to work, not sure about meter.

  12. Further information: From the Uncle Fred collection - seems to be in working condition, meter works. Cosmetically good. See separate items for standard lens, and also an original Nikon F body.

  13. Further information: The first and best of Uncle Fred's camera collection which was left to me. It has the AE-II prism finder and waist level finder. The lens is the 75mm f2.8. The back is the 120. Appears to be working but I'm not going to put a medium format film through it and have it developed. So sold as is, and good value for a full set like this - I gather that there are only minor differences between this and the ETRSi model, both can use the same viewfinders. Ask about freight - at buyer's cost and risk - it would be advisable to send it Australia Post with insurance,
  14. Bargain indeed. I used to sell these, and would have them any day instead of most other compact speakers. Bloody good stands too!
