So... is this a real speaker, or something made to look like a speaker?
I would love to try this out, if it is a real speaker. Any link to instructions on how to make this?
We'd like some technical specs, if you don't mind. Also, where is the subwoofer?
Just by looking at those pictures, I seriously doubt they will sound good. That woofer looks like a 8" driver in about 9 liters of closed enclosure. It's not unpossible to get some low out of that, but it requires a driver with very quirky specs...
Yeah, but he may have ported it on the back end. Heck, I would do a dual ported design on the back of that 8" driver (for the frequency weaknesses you will get in a design like that). If you did the crossover right, that driver shouldn't really be handling anything over 250hz anyway. A bit of mud in your sub-bass is fine and building closed, correctly done subs is art of its own. DANG nice build though! I am thinking of doing a variant of this with those bowls. Maybe a duo spherical speaker on the bottom using a wide range 6.5" and a 1" silk dome in the top. Probably build a set for less than $100.
You two are both quite right. Yes .. bass is a little flat, but I have tried to solve it, to run the sound through pipes. see this picture. (1 +2)http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3265949284837.2161002.1150436311&type=3&l=ea7a0ec828Hope you can understand this.Damir Paco
Very impressive. Like the legendary B&W Nautilus at all.
Simply beautiful !
So, how exactly was this achieved? Does anyone else have a more detailed instruction set?
Hey. Yes they are real speaker. The bass is a little flat, but it can be done with a woofer. I have unfortunately no instructions in how to make them because I did not think to take pictures while I made them. I have uploaded an image so you can see them where they stand today.SincerelyDamir Paco
Oops here is the picturehttp://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3265949284837.2161002.1150436311&type=1&l=ea7a0ec828
They look very nice.
what are the sizes of the speakers? and what is connecting them to stand like that *(the top once)
Man you are the new age/Ikea macgyver :)
These speakers are real beauties! They look great! Cool eye-catchers! Could you please give some data about the speakers and the electronics? Wireing, Speakersizes, Crossover, etc?
This is amazing! I'd love to hear how they sound.
Amazing. Does the construction consistof a crossover at all? (since you did not replyon the detailed questions ...)mac
Hello MacYes there is a crossover stored in the "large" bowl.
Looks nice. Good work. I like the fact that you rounded the baffles. They appear to nearly approach spherical baffles which actually improves diffraction/early reflections. Also, your bass response can always be increased with equalization and long excursion drivers.
