Materials: Faktum Overhead Units, Non downlights.
Description: Probably the most outrageous hack I’ve ever done.
Faktum kitchen cabinets are rather heavy-duty, so I chose these cabinets as the basic frames to house the organ speakers.
The blue wall, is unfortunately laid with wire and air-con ductings. Therefore the mounting points for the (rather heavy)Faktum cabinet were lowered. The back of each cabinets were cut and holes on the sides were drilled to allow cables to pass through.
Lowering the mounting point can be rather undesirable as it would be harder to support the weights of the cabinets, plus the speakers. The cabinets were also then fastened to the ceiling so that they can withstand their own weights plus the speakers.
I contructed the (rather unprofessional-looking) cabinet doors out of basswood and speaker grill cloth. These allow sound from the speaker to pass through without compromising on the fidelity.
A pair of Non downlights were installed under the cabinet to provide lights for the organ.
Next to the organ is a Besta cabinet modified to house the amplification system.
And a hacked Kristaller Chandelier compliments the whole organ room setup.
