Lets start a Gallery of "your" favorite DIY images

Discussion in 'Home Theater Projects' started by Anthony_Gomez, Apr 18, 2003.

  1. The DIY forum seems dead, so I thought I'd start a new ...thread [​IMG]


    The "rules":
    1) The picture MUST be a DIY project
    2) This is not a thread on what "kit" or "plan" has the best potential or sounds the best, but rather images of the best visial exicution of a DIY project. Hopefully we can get some really cool pics here.
    3) ANY audio/video related DIY project is fair game (ie cables, amps, speakers, equipment racks)
    4) LINK ALL IMAGES!!! This way each time you visit this thread, you don't waste the host bandwidth by keep loading the same pictures over and over.

    EDIT:
    5) YOUR favorite, doesn't necessarily mean one of your projects...but then again,one of your projects might be your favorite anyways [​IMG]



    ...I'll start. This is a Dipole done by Steve Houlihan. He had them at the las Bass List meeting.

    Down at the bottom, the MTM using the FAL.
    Removable top plate,removable tweeter plates as well.1.25" thick base plates, port panels to adjust the length from 3/4" to 1.25"

    These use the FAl drivers and for a trial the G2 as the plates are removable.
    Now this is how you use 7 sheets of BH5

    Yes the other speaker is my creation also. I'm currently designing a center channel and rear surrounds (that will hang on the wall), with the same look.
    thx

    My crude web site has some of mine, but my most proud accomplishment is the pair of GR Research Alpha LS's I built for Danny personally. I veneered them in Padauk. They're on the second page of my web site. Compared to the other photos, I'm ashamed of the low resolution of mine.

    Hank,

    Just cash in some of that 3M stock of yours and spend the whopping $99/yr. for real web space. [​IMG]

    Okay fine you guys are going to make me show you all up
    (insert major sarcasm here..) [​IMG]

    Here is an image of my car sub box I built 10 years ago
    and almost 10 cars ago [​IMG] Still alive and well..

    I don't have anything else to show off yet.. When my high
    end klone audio rack is done I will be sure to flaunt it
    all over.. As for speakers I am not into just building
    something new every week like some of you guys! [​IMG] So when
    I build my set it will be the only set I build and hopefuly
    they will last me a couple decades [​IMG]

    Here's my car sub box.. Isn't it snazzy?

    Here are a couple of a Leach Amp that a guy built. I found them completely inspiring and wound up building a few myself because of these pictures. I highly recommend trying one of these, they sound fantastic.



    A look at the guts.

    A fine view of the front.
