finished building the tops for my micro flat hifi. 

bi weird tops faital 3" 22 for midbass and dayton tiny nd16fa -6 tweeters 
rear ported.
midbass rolled off at 90 to 100hz to sub. hf crossed 4khz to mid. 
fiberglass orbs made from 8mm woven fiberglass with ply ribs inside for stiffness.
grills designed by me and brother (solid works by my bro) and 3d printed out of alumide.
running them full range at the moment they dont sound half bad in the low end department but once the sub is up and running im sure there will be a much better sound scape.

here are a few pics 








I do a sideline in ply wood wheels.

How are you NOT selling these to high end fashion boutque stores across london?? They look very fancy and once you tell them its "hi-fi sound" for their rich clients in their over priced store they will be begging you to hang a load from the ceiling in all sorts of colours....


...just saying like.....

Very well done job by the way!

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

Thanks guys. yeh the sub is on its way pics next week end. doing something a bit interesting with the sub.
mini mad. cheers i will perhaps put them into production but the idea of haveing to make the molds for them to be made in fiberglass fills me with dred. but im sure i could find someone to make them for me. i need to give them a proper shake down first with the sub and make sure there not turkeys but so far just on there own with no eq they sound remarkably good. 
the specification by my girlfriend for them was to be small, look good and sound good. she seems happy but my outboard for running them with the sub is hilarious, 3 samson servo amps (hf) 170 midbass (260) sub 550. dbx crossover and 15band eq. lucky i built a 19" rack into the shelves in the living room.

All JBL drivers 
2245 18"
2123 10" mid
2450 2" exit on E-JMLC 300 horns stunning sound.
2405 tweeter. Trouble getting them with genuine JBL diaphragms.

Running via Marchand active analogue crossover.

Vintage Pioneer M 60 amplifiers.

All time aligned physically but it would be great if I could find someone who had the gear to do some proper measurements to get it spot on.

It really does sound very nice and even the wife approves.
