DIY-Loudspeakers

Below you will find articles on some of the work done over the last decade. Building speakers has be on and off since high school, but with the availability of PC-based measuring equipment in the Nineties my hobby took another direction as it became very much clear, that doing crossovers by calculation and fine-tuning by ear had its shortcomings. Over the years my focus has moved from small inefficient speakers to larger constructions providing the dynamics that make reproduced music live and engaging. Below you will find speakers ranging from 2 to 300 litres volume and I hope you will find inspiration for your next DIY project. contact: troels.gravesen@hotmail.com None of the constructions, illustrations or information presented here may be used for commercial purposes without my written consent.

We have available an affordable, ready to use electrostatic panel that can be built into either a bookshelf, stand mount or floor standing loudspeaker.

This panel was the result of collaboration between E R Audio and Reality Technologies of Melbourne. The panel was primarily designed for incorporation into a floor standing loudspeaker and is now available to the DIY community. Do not let the small size fool you, this panel does really perform well throughout the bandwidth it was designed for. Naturally the panel cannot deliver really low frequencies and requires a sub-woofer or bass driver to give full range response, however, when coupled with a good quality sub it really does deliver the goods. What does it cost? (plus 10% GST for domestic purchases). What do you get? You get 2x ready made and tested ESL panels, 2x power supplies and 2x step-up transformers. The transformer and power supply are ready assembled and tested. See below for tech specs and more info.

Inspired by Marcelo Coehlo’s paper speaker and Vincent Leclerc’s Accouphene textile speaker, these paper and fabric speakers are made by running 5-9V sound amplified signal through a very conductive coil in close proximity to a magnet.

HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT

Unlike most speakers that have the wire coil wrapped cylindrically and placed around the magnet, here the coil is in the plane and directly adhered to the membrane that moves the air creating sound. The coils can be made from a variety of conductive materials. Copper tape, conductive fabric tape, conductive fabric and stainless steel thread work really well.

Mt Everest had already been climbed, so I figured I might as well make my own speakers. After all, the raw material cost of your average high end speaker is about 1/6 the retail cost so there was money to be saved. A slight problem is that I have the woodworking skills of a dolphin, but then I came across the website of Seigfried Linkwitz, may the sun shine always upon his pate. SL, if I may call him that, was the designer of the Audio Artistry Beethoven, a speaker which won Stereofool's Speaker of the Year a few years back, he also designed the Linkwitz/Riley crossover. I heard a pair once and loved them. Best of all, the actual woodworking side of it seemed pretty basic. The Subwoofer DIY Page.

Sound reproduction is about creating illusions in our mind, in that amazing information processor between our two ears. Sound reproduction involves physical processes to generate air vibrations that move our eardrums and in turn stimulate mental processes, that have evolved over millions of years for the purpose of survival and for communication, processes that lead to perception of the sound source and its environment. While we can measure many different physical parameters involved in the generation and propagation of a sound field, it becomes exceedingly difficult to assess their relative importance to what we hear and how it helps or detracts from the illusion.

First of all, DIY speakers use the same parts, building materials (usually), and design techniques of HiFi speakers in the 4 and 5-figure range. This means you can have that "rich" sound at a fraction of the retail cost. Second, by learning the science behind the design of loudspeakers, a lot of the mysticism and mythology that plagues the audiophile world becomes dispelled, and you learn what is important--and what is irrelevant--in exceptional sound reproduction.

As an example and as an enticement to you, I provide you with design information for the PHOENIX, a loudspeaker system of the highest sonic performance, true to the original , FAQ22 . The speaker evolved over a number of years and represents a departure from my earlier approach to system design in Ref.12. At that time I had not sufficiently understood the influence of the room upon the reproduced sound at low frequencies. The speaker is a refinement of the compact dipole in Ref. 2, a 3-way system with line-level crossover and equalization circuitry ahead of the power amplifiers. Speakercables.
