BUILT FROM SCRATCH BELLES

Recommended Posts

Built the separate bass bin and tophat for a friend using Crites 15" cast frame woofers, K500 horns and xovers purchased from a forum member (Thanks Al) wit K77 tweeters.  The tophat is movable and the risers are covered with felt on the bottom to prevent scratching the cabinets.   Cherry veneer with poly finish and rubbed down with 0000 steel wool and finishing wax.  Custom made new 1/2" ply grills with hidden neo magnets.

Your work is always top notch.  If you were near me, and my wife agreed, and I had a different listening room ...

Thanks guys. Sound good. Owner loves them. Fit great in his kitchen.   I used 3/4” BB ply throughout except for sides of bass bin I used 1.25” ply to cut down vibration.

You cheated us out of a build thread! I love build treads! Yours in particular!

Very nice work!

Only Dave would have Belle in the Kitchen, 50's mahogany khorn in the den, Ken's La Scala in the living room, cornwall in thegarage, and industrial la scala in the basement and all his kids have heresy's in their bedrooms. He does need bathroom speakers LOL......
