These are one of the projects I got done this past year. I’ve been meaning to post them for a while, but life has gotten in the way.

Here they are, the Half Changs. I originally built these as a “proof of concept” for me and a buddy. I used some very crappy speakers in these, but even with the bad speakers these enclosures produce good sound. I had hoped to build a bigger double horn set, but I don’t have the space right now. SO these wound up becoming my shop speakers. I need to ad some tweeters to these to fill in what the 8” “full range” (not) speaker don’t cover.

Plans for these and a number of other quality speakers can be found here…..

Very cool speakers.
I’ve built a couple of speaker cabinets before. I’ve never made any for Hi-Fi applications. Guitar and bass cabs are completely different.

With speakers like that, in a shop the size of yours, do you keep the volume on 1?
Nice build. I like the very large speakers. I know a lot of newer speakers produce decent sound. However, I’ve never heard any small ones produce GREAT sound like the old full size speaker cabinets.
So I see you found a way around that by building your own.

Ah, you’re a horn fanatic! Cool!

Looks like the Hemp Audio speakers I had… terrible sounding driver! Cool box however!

Have your say...
