Hi this is another project of mine.
I love listening to music I have 3000 records and a Micri Seiki .
These are back loaded horn speakers they are a special design using a folded horn (tunnel) inside the speaker box to amplify the sound. This type of speaker only uses one driver and it covers the full sound range much like a car stereo speaker. Some people add sub-woofer to these (I do ) for extra oomph!
This is a Fostex F206e 8” Japanese speaker and i used the speaker plans from Fostex. They have loads and loads of speakers so you can build any size you like.
I made these from 18mm ply and then cased it in 12mm ply and veneered the front with Birds eye maple and used the mahogany veneer from the ply I bought 2 door saddle at the diy store and used them for the front and top corners as they were the same cheap mahogany/luan as the ply.
I gave it 2 coats of shellac and 5 coats of System3 WLPU boat varnish waited a month and buffed it and waxed it.
I tested them before finishing them and they sounded terrific,spooky good. My friend is a guitar player and came over to hear them and he went home and said he could get off his mind so he bought them off me. I am now building another set.
