CORNER HORN PROJECT X4 pics

hey everyone my names Andy
ive been browsing this site now for over 6-7 years, have made the wicked one, housewrecker, and was greatly impressed with them, and so has anyone who have heard them.

I had got the plans way back in december for last yr (05), and in the mean time  have moved, to a bigger house with a very large garage (my shop).  

Over the past summer have bought up pairs of Fostex 167e , Aurum Cantus ac165, and HIVI RT1C-A tweeters. and of course about 10 sheets of mdf dont come cheap either. Cry

so last week cutting began,  and last night i stayed out in the shop til 1:30am,  i had most of all the parts and so started the  assembly


ill post pics soon as i take it off my digi, and remember how to post on here.   <img_src*....somthing wasnt it?? ???

has anyone made these yet? and if so in what order did u assemble the frontbaffle parts "N"?

ill post more as progress goes along..
Kiss

cheers Andy

Keep those pics coming!  I'm looking forward to the report on your listening experience once you have them completed.

After hearing Zygi's account of his first experience with the corner horns, I am dedicated to either building a house with a room for them, a shed set up specifically for them, or I am simply going to adopt a father with a room for them.
I want to hear these things!!!!!!

lol

Hope the build goes well. By all accounts this should be the loveliest speakers you ever own. Let us know how it goes!

cutting the 22.5 degree angle on the table saw, took  a few times to get the angle perfect....think it was about 22.75 degrees, but 22.5 is close enough

parts surrounding piece "v" , ended up being a 9.5 degree on the chop saw and then an 10.5 degree vertical v notch on the table saw, then extended the cut to a point with the band saw

Wild,
What application are you making these for?
If you are making them for a liveable sized room and you are going to be using them for personal space, I don't think it is optimum to put the 4 5" drivers in the horn. In fact, unless I am mistaken you have already cut the baffle for the 6" in the front?
After talking to Zygi this weekend, my impression is that the version that uses the multiple drivers was actually flown like a proffesional line type speaker. Awesome quality when no directional element was needed (I think that sounds right)
Anyway, if you are going to be using it in a personal setting, I think you would just want to go for the single driver unit here. I know that you wouldn't put 5 speakers in it if that is what you have on the agenda.
I have no idea how many have been built, but I think the plans and the white papers (and from the opinion that Bob gave me) these things need to be in a "somewhat" specific room meaning the knee walls or an opening between them is pretty important.
Do you have a picture of where they will be placed? Or are they going to be used for pro sound?
Let us know what you got going on there. If I were you, I would definitely give Steve a call with any questions on these.
I am curious too though? Has anyone else built these yet?

That is a good question.  I thought I read in the notes too that the application could use multiple 4s or a single 6 or something along that line.  

Way to go for it Wild.  I am sure many are eagerly awaiting your progress on this job.  Great pics so far.

I have not heard anyone completing these as of yet and your pictures are the closest to a build I have seen.

I would never build them but if you have the room for it they would be a awsome project.
I have pretty much read all the data on them and its awsome that you have taken them on to build..
I have to add your work is really nice, thanks a bunch for the pics. Your posts are really making my day!  :)

im making them for personal use yes....and im making 4 of them so stacking them is a posibility,  yes using fostex driver for one...set...and one as a 2 way

ive also made 4 extra baffles  with no cutouts case i want to do lil testing as a mtm or somthing like that....or further down the road think id like to try out the 4x 5" application.... but still prety tight to get in 4 drivers without ripping the horn apart.

ill be putting them in room thats 11'7" X13'5" with 8' 6" high ceiling

in the house there is also a 16'x 40' catheral ceiling....but it only has 1 true corner to other is doors and closet, opposite side is a stair case and  the kicthen open concept

i could make the knee wall there in the commercial application
and because the speakers would sit on the 16' wide wall.....dirction of sound might be less crutial

i can take pics latr tonight


ohh im very unfimilar with tube amps
call me a tube virgin if ya like  :-/

cause i have not yet heard one and compared

and by the sounds of things i should REALLY get one

but well im gonna have some dinner and head out to the shop and assemble a couple more
