These speakers have an absolutely amazing sound and great bass - they are simply too big for my room.
When I initially started to make these I was going to recreate a pair of Klipsh Heresy, but for some reason thought "why not do a pair of larger speakers that will look like Cornwalls with the grills on instead?". Well, I'll tell you why I shouldn't have done a pair of Cornwall clones - despite the fact that they look and sound absolutely amazing - The wife says they "are too damn big and way too awesome" (she may or may not have actually used the word awesome).
Anyway, I now have to settle for a pair of Tannoy Legacy Eatons. The Eatons are now here and I need to recoup some of the money I spent on these beauties.
The price I am asking barely covers the cost of the high quality parts and the cabinet construction is great (if I do say so myself).
Audio Nirvana Super 12" AlNiCo Full range drivers
Custom veneered cabinets made from 19mm veneered MDF
Dimensions - 850mm high 588 mm wide 396mm deep and heavy
Cabinets are all biscuit joint construction and absolutely solid and heavy
Waxed veneered timber
Flared ports with internal diameter from 85mm to 110mm at flared mouth
Furutech Alpha s-14 speaker wire inside
Genuine WBT-0710CU binding posts mounted to internal metal brackets
Two sets of Cornwall badges for mounting to alternate grills
Cane for grills - natural radio weave
Linen for grills - 18 stitch natural lambswool floba eavenweave
Unused binding plates
Unused speaker spikes (for bases if wanted)
leftover veneer and MDF for low base/floor stand if required
Designed so that when the grills are finished they will closely resemble Klipsh Cornwalls (but they look great without grills as well) - I just really wanted them to look like Cornwalls with the grills on.
I have included some photos of the construction process and some info on the drivers themselves below.
I have a video of the inside which shows the cabling and the insulation I can email to you.
If you are really interested it would definitely be a good idea to come and inspect and listen.
Any questions please simply ask.
Thanks for looking
NB....some of the pictures are not the best quality but they look great up close (the top of the last photo looks funny because of the light only) .
