Tower Speakers

Project Level:

Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
These are my first try at speaker building. I’ve had this shape stuck in my head for 20 years and it needed to be freed. These are front channel and are to be paired with a sub. I used Baltic birch ply and sycamore for the materials. The inside is a crazy array of baffles ….. Because it was fun and I was trying to keep the drivers from cancelling each other out. The box is separated into two ; where each has a pair or mids.

Design Goals:
I was looking to build something that would fill the room with sound and not have any particular focal points. I guess I wanted to create sound that would fill a room like fog.

Driver Selection:
Pyramid W64 6.5″ mid bass woofers. PE #295-025
Tymphany 1″ textile dome

These came out sounding crisp but I need to work out a few weak points still.

About the Designer:
Im a exhibit builder and have a BFA in sculpture.

    These are really cool – do you have any internal diagram or schematic? How about a crossover schematic? Is one side of the speakers constructed from the Birch stacked horizontally? Appears you must have sanded quite a bit on these. Did you have to significantly boost the high end to compensate for non-facing tweeters? Any additional information you can provide would be much appreciated.
