Project Description:
Tri-Trix ported build using in a vintage radio.

Design Goals:
Jukebox for daily listening of FM radio & Bluetooth podcasts.

Driver Selection:
Tri-Trix kit, two side by side two way speakers with 2-5-1\2″ woofers & a dome tweeter

Enclosure Design:
Alot of head scratching went into this cabinet remodel even though the Tri-Trix speaker layout was seemingly designed exactly for the constraints of this cabinet. Entirely salvaged & reclaimed material was used throughout so harder than necessary.

Tips & Tricks:
Small NobSound tube amp prefers pushing 4 Ohm over 8. Speaker terminals from amp go internally to binding posts & X-over. “surround” speakers can be run off external side of speaker terminals reducing load.

Conclusion:
sounding pretty good.

About the Designer:
Retired guy with lots of time & junk.
