I have recently returned to using my hifi, and would like to pick up on a topic I investigated in the past, adding to it a DIY element. Firstly I am a technical no hoper, but have no fear of building a enclosure and producing a aesthetically pleasing device.
Mirror Polished 401 Martin Bastin Bearing, SME IV, Self Built Laminated Granite Plinth 54Kg, WAD Amps Mirror Polished.
Self built Granite shelved turned wood stands. ESL 57. A very long term build of Monoblock 845 Push pull Amps in the process of being built by Theo Agariadis.
If I remember correctly, I was investigating a REL Subwoofer as well.
The list should help to see where I took my system to, before it was wrapped up and put away at the time of a house move.
Please note it is many years since these items have been used, it is now time to bring this enjoyable experience back into a regular part of My Wifes and My life.
I was hoping that there may be a Sub Woofer design of a Dipole or Open Baffle, that I could look into building. It will be used to compliment the bottom end of the ESL 57. Now I am taking a serious view on Hifi, I seem to feel I would like revisit a Old Ambition to build a Full Range Open Baffle speaker, so I would be interested to find out if it is practical to have a separate Stand alone Sub Woofer that could be used in both set ups.
I don’t mind starting with cheaper drivers and upgrading as my knowledge and listening experience grows.
Any input is welcome and look forward to any wisdom.
