Quite an improvement! I love the finger joints with rounded corners. That is beautiful cherry wood you used too. I have found it’s prudent to keep the wife happy, and that is my goal! lol

Nice improvement on the speakers, the lighter look is definitely better and component cabinet is great too.

Nicely done. As an amateur speaker-builder and hi-fi lover, it’s nice to see hi-fi projects here.

Thank you all! I hope I have embarrassed you Bunkie, to make AND PUBLISH some nice speakers (I’ll be watching). The cabinets of my Celestions were made of veneered chipboard (and they were expensive), and you say you use only MDF. Is there something about the properties of artificial wood that suits the acoustics? You sound as though you have an Idyllic setup, NYC (I love NYC) and country seat. I note your “Sex And Satisfaction” logo. Do you work there? I was in the RCAF many years ago. My nephew now lives in NYC (Queens) and I hope to visit him this year.PS I am a fully qualified Curmudgeon

I sold Ditton speakers years ago at now defunct Pacific Sterro and had a pair of Ditton 250’s. They were nice sounding speakers. They used Laser Interferometry to help eliminate cabinet resonance. Nice save on the speakers and nice cabinet to go with them.

Funny, I’ve never heard SAS referred to that way. My dad worked for SAS and I grew up hanging out in hangars and flying back and forth to Scandinavia each summer. When I was old enough I worked at JFK loading food on airplanes. The DC-8 pictured is one I almost certainly flew upon. What did you do in the RCAF? I’m a life-long avation buff.
Yes, I’m quite embarrassed by the nasty finish on my speakers. I’m planning to learn veneering so that I can make a really nice pair using the latest drivers. But that’s down the road a bit. I’m only half way through my kitchen cabinet project and I’ve been informed that any deviation from that plan will be frowned upon.
MDF is nice and dense and that makes for a cabinet that has minimal self-resonance. That’s a good thing. I happen to have a soft spot for British loudspeakers. Hallmark, I used to sell KEFs back in the 70s.
Finally, I’ll trade you Italy for New York City, if you’re interested ;—}

Thanks for the comments Bumkie, I think it’s wise in the long term to concentrate on the kitchen project, I’m sure you prefer cabinets to speakers. LOL I’ll post something on my blog concerning the RCAF. I already have some Photos on my FLICKR sitehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/maclegno/sets/72157622190375077/. Years ago there were funny interpretations for airline acronyms like SAS, my favourite was for ALITALIA, Always Late In Takeoff Always Late In Arrival, or better, Arrived Late In Turin All Luggage In Athens.
