Nice, i hope they sound as good as they look, do you want them to shake the place.

RE: Ellam25 - new speakers

We like to see these diy projects. Interested to know all the details. I have made several sets some years back and found the job very satisfying. Are all the photos your own?
Well done.

RE: Ellam25 - new speakers

Thank you for all kind words

All photos are taken as I go along - and will update next weekend to (hopefully) show progress.

And will write a full review as soon as they are up and running and have had time to break in

With double ScanSpeak drivers, they should deliver enough bottom end for both me and most of the neighbours >)

Definitely looking good there. Interested in your thoughts on how you come up with the design. Waiting anxiously for your review once run in.

RE: Ellam25 - new speakers

Lovely work, big fan of Troels designs! I would love to have an ounce of the speaker design and manufacture that he has!

 

Was there any particular reason you chose that design over his others? I would find it difficult to choose!

RE: Ellam25 - new speakers

Chose the design based on speaker size and the fact that I wanted something with a bit of low end punch

 

One cabinet done - fronts now black

RE: Ellam25 - new speakers

One done - one to go. It sounds very good even without any time to break in - and it is partnered with one of the Eekels Minis (see separate showcase for these)
