I didn't wake up one day and instantly know how to design a speaker. No! I had to actually learn how to build one first, which is a big undertaking in and of itself. These are postmortems of projects I've built that were other people's designs. I wrote these to try to journal the unique challenges (and reactions) I experienced along the way, and the joys of the final products.
the mesmerizing Cinderellas (05/2007)
This is a postmortem of the challenges and things I learned while
building the Curt C/Wayne W design. Excellent value for $250, and
extremely high Spouse Approval Factor due to sexy, sleek, modern design.
the ubiquitous Dayton III (12/2006)
This is a postmortem of my first speaker building endeavor, which was
such a resounding success. Designed by Wayne J, they were my gateway
drug to DIY speakers. Some may dis them for lack of detail in the
midrange; but I still find them to be an excellent value and a lot of
fun to listen to!
