A diary of DIY'er
's 18 years and over 26
A direct heritage of Kingston Kitchen
This is non- commercial web site and I don't answer to request for
guidance in speaker projects (unless very brief).
CLONE OR NOT?
makes no sense to clone B&W or Wilson Audio because these are
commercial speakers not intended to be made at home and frankly not
intended to sound best. Follow a good DIY project instead. But DON'T
follow my projects because none of them is doccumented well enough to
copy. This site is intended to stir some interest and some doubt in
commercial speakers, it is not for DIY cloners. If you copy my design
and do not like it - I can not help you out of your misery.
2 Way, 3 way or 4- way? -
3 way is the best path.
Active or passive?
Active speakers promise a lot of quality but in my opinion are
unnecessary. Well made SENSITIVE 3 way is good enough.
Glue or screws?
Ribbon or dome? Silk dome or Alu?
Ribbon, maybe silk dome, never alu dome.
Scanspeak? Vifa? Focal? Seas? Dynaudio?
Answer is VINTAGE.
PROJECTS IN DETAILS:
