These are my tributes to the phenomenal Sonus Faber Cremonia Auditor stand mount speakers. I have been at these for a year now (have to include a cross country move) and the work has been very involved. Because my bandsaw has only 7” of cutting height I had to cut the bullet shape in two sections and then rasp, grind sand and sand some more to achieve this shape. The drivers (I have them) for each cabinet are true to what the factory specs are (they are a 6K pair of speakers) and most of the components for the crossovers too. These are being set aside right now as I am knee deep into getting ready for a run of dining tables that hopefully will allow me the money and time to finish the speakers and put them on a display floor too. These are made from off cuts from three different runs of oak kitchen cabinet doors, that’s why the interiors are a bit rough – I just cannot throw offcuts away ya know!! The next ones will be made from thicker maple that will be conditioned before staining – learned that lesson the hard way!!
