I can’t seem to stay focused these days… building speakers, amps, and a buffer all at the same time. Anywho… here’s a post for the latest item. A pair of CJDs rs150 TM bookshelf speakers. I need a pair of smaller speakers for the bedroom. They’ll probably be driven from a chip amp (that I’ve actually completed already) using my iphone as a source.
I got the tweeters used and the woofers aren’t that much to begin with so I just bought them.
I made the cabinet with simple birch plywood all leftover from other projects with mitered and biscuited corners. The front corners will be about a 3/8″ bevel as a design feature (I’m a sucker for the laminate look for some reason) with a basic hand rubbed tung oil finish to match many of my other builds.
So far, I’ve been very happy with them. They need a little breaking in and they don’t sound nearly as good as the full size designs, but they’re very good for what they are.
The next project will be the opposite end of the spectrum… very large with dual woofers, dual mid-ranges, and my first build with a ribbon tweeter. And of course, I still need to finish the other amps and buffer projects!
