I made these for a close friend (and fellow audiophile) last Christmas. The baffles are solid 3/4” purpleheart finished with mineral oil, and the rest of the case is simply 3/4 particleboard covered in black synthetic leather.
The tweeters are vintage EPI (Epicure) soft domes, and the woofers are HiVi B3Ns. The crossovers are a custom simple 6dB/octave design. Normally you don’t want to recess-mount a woofer, but since they’re only 3” and the baffles are rounded over, it’s not an issue. I didn’t want screws showing, and I wasn’t going to cover up purpleheart with speaker cloth, so this seemed like the best option.
The last photo is a set of hex braided speaker cables I made to go along with them. They’re more for show than anything, but they’re extremely flexible and stay right where you put them.
