Stonerboy's new scratch built speakers

Recommended Posts

The guts of each of the speakers will be:

- Hertz DX 200 woofer 6 1/2"

- Hertz DX 100 dome tweeter

- Bohlender Greabener Neo 3 Ribbon tweeter

- gold plated banana socket

- gold plated banana plug

- sleeved 12awg speaker cables

- cut up foam for general sound deadening and sealing

- black noise isolating speaker spikes

 

The materials used for the speakers

- an internal 16mm MDF box

- an external 19mm clear pine casing

- a white oak wood putty for filling dents and gaps

- Black Japan Satin stain

- Clear Satin finishing coat

 

I have a matching Sub box to be completed at some point too.

 

Some pics for now more to come soon

These are just the first coats they will end up looking nearly pitch black.

Pretty cool!

I like it :D

 

What did you use to cut the holes?

Looks like a drill+jigsaw for the big hole/rectangle, and a hole saw for the smaller bottom one :).

As to how i cut it it was all done with the drop saw then i used my jigsaw to cut the holes. Used a hole saw for the tweeter but unfortunately havent added 155 and 165mm hole saws to my collection of tools, yet at least.

Finished by 3 or 4 haha not a chance its going to need another 4 or so coats of black japan before i give it 2 or 3 clear cotes

 

Got some more pics though from the other day

The drop saw with the colapsable benches and work frame that have been made for it.

Unfortunately one of the benches got wet in storage and just being a clear coated mdf it swelled up shockingly so it was removed back to the hardwood frame.

The new top was perfect was a bit of spare melemine that was the perfect length and an hour of cutting later

not really..... I am using clear pine and mdf from bunnings and it is cheep as chips.

 

The clear pine is about $10 for a 2400x140x19mm sheet and the mdf is $20, i think, cant remember for 2400x1200x16mm

 

More expensive was the stain, or the connectors and then well the actual drivers they where expensive.

You guys are telling me, I'm the definition of a broke college kid. I haven't been anywhere except home because I'm too broke to fill up my tank in the E30. :(
