System  A :   Studio Stage Bass Guitar  Speaker
 Re engineered by
Russell Storey for 
 Peter Fricke  of  NSW  Australia      

Stones re engineered a pair of Richard Allan Stereo Hi Fi Boxes into a High definition studio and stage  Bass Guitar
rig .The system can be run as either single or double bass speaker mode. The Bass Guitar amplifier is a Time Traveler Studio
with  2ohm drive and excellent bass  mid and Hf  EQ control. Peter wanted to use the original HF tweeter so a simple 12/oct HP filter
was used in conjunction with the 12" XLS Peerless Subwoofer to give a bit more top end to the bass .
The vented  bass guitar boxes have wood slide rails on the sides for easy transport . The bass guitar  boxes also have a
fold up foot to adjust the tilt back for in Studio  live sound  close mic  recording of the enclosure .Peter manufactured
a metal grill panel to stones design and then had the grill powder coated .The speakers have a very  fast tight clean low distortion sound for jazz rock pop sound for both stage or in studio professional recording

HI Russell,

the speakers that i've built are my own design after long hour's on the net i found a windows based program for my box calculations and crossovers and after a couple of trail run's settled for what i think is a good all around size,900h*330d*250w.The speakers that I've used are two 8in hds peerless woofer's with a vifa 3ih dome mid and the 1in hds tweeter.The crossover is a simple first order but used only high quilty components,a must.Hopefully in the attached photo's u will be able to see the paint job,i wanted a moden look so i painted them with the ford phantom colour which changes colour in different light, a great effect.I'm very interrested in your thoughts on the look of these. System  B :   DIY   Peerless/ Vifa  3 way  built  by  Troy Dries  of  NSW  Australia

Hi Russell, hope all is well!
FYI I have finished my first complete speaker  box pair, see attached pics...

"  I have incorporated many design changes since our last contact based upon your recommendations, the results are great!!"""

Anyway, I am planning on building some more boxes and incorporate some more design improvements, as well as use your improved HDS tweeter and the HDS 6.5" phase plug (850467).

Thanks for all the tips on cabinet construction. I feel a lot happier
about having a go at it now. I didn't think of gaffa tape around the
box corners - I like that idea, will make it a lot easier to assemble & clamp!
In the meantime, I look forward to getting the crossover parts, so I can
wire them up & test-run the drivers -
