Speaker Boxes

This is a work in progress, I’ll update this when they are done.

I designed these speaker boxes so the resonating chamber led into a horn shape. They are designed to add extra amplification, as a trumpet does as the air travels from the thin mouth piece to the wider horn.

This concept isn’t new, many speaker designs use this principle, I wanted to retain a curve in the horn rather than having straight lines as you often see on speaker rigs.

The major limiting factor to this project was materials. Other than the MDF I used to create the internal skeleton I salvaged old bearers, from large timber deliveries. The timber is a tropical hardwood and has a fantastic grain pattern and colour. Unfortunately this wood was just being used to keep planked timber from getting wet on the ground. I planked this hard wood up and used it to clad the speakers (finished pics one day)
