It’s been awfully quiet here, so an update is in order. I haven’t done much engraving in the meantime, but some other interesting stuff is in progress. More on that at later time.
But now I can present my new computer speakers – wonderful little uFonkens from Planet 10 HiFi Fonken family. Speaker elements in these are Fostex fullrange FF85WK‘s.
Enclosure is made of birch plywood and veneered with walnut burl. Looking wonderful and sounding very good with vocal music. But they do need additional sub, can’t beat physics, small speakers just don’t play low.
After correct pieces are cut and matched for the sides, it’s time to glue them. Quite easy process if you have press with heat plates. Fortunately our press was just big enough for these tiny speakers.
And here they are, ready for listening.
Not quite sure what to do with the ports, though. Paint them brown, maybe?
