    I recently fell in love with the walnut veneer and burnt orange quadrex foam grilled of the (new) JBL L82/L100. I also found out that you can purchase the grilles, or a fairly good clone of the foam, for a reasonable amount of money. So, I’m looking to make something in the same dimensions as...

    Active center speaker on a budget

    My very first serious DIY speaker project was a centre speaker about two decades ago. Back then I was already aware of the fact that a horizontal center speaker usually does not have a decent off-axis response. So my center was vertical, comprising of 2x Monacor SPH-135KEP, one of the lower...

    Snowy Day experiment (Up-firing, wall coupled coaxial)
