Teens doing nothing. That sounds safe and trouble free. ;)

Between Jim's bookshelf build and the specification of the Bob Brines bookshelf enclosure (TB-20) you pretty much have a good bookshelf design you can use. If you are considering a floor standing unit, I would suggest Bob's proven T-line enclosure (TT-2000) for the drivers.

Cheers

I won't be able to do a project with the Tang Band full range drivers. It seems that every time I get a little extra cash, something happens.

Last week I sold a high-end tonearm to a guy overseas. He gets it and says there is a scratch on it. Sent me a pic, and there it is, on the UNDERSIDE of the arm lift!

He is returning it and I have to refund his $550.

So, I have drivers but no cash to do anything with them. Oh, did I tell you my wife's car needed a new upper and lower hose, thermostat and serpentine belt...$600!

Any suggestions? Do I trade or sell them? Is there shame in putting them in old cabinets? I really wanted to actually make something.


Oh well, "They call me Deacon Blues...."

Of course not. An old enclosure is better than no enclosure. You can always build one later.

MasonDad, what an expensive wife you've got :mrgreen:
... try instead to be happy, that your teenage daughters are sitting around doing nothing, because if they starts getting active, they'll cost money to. :bawling:

Anyway, i think you just should pause your TB project ( not sell ) and get back, when the economy is better. :2c: You're about 100$ near a solution, if building the enclosures in simple MDF.

Best wishes for you and your project. :xfingers: :horseshoe: :clover:

Hello, does anybody know a speaker building kit with the Tang Band W8-1772 or a even a commercial speaker for sale? I'm not skilled enough to build one from scratch. Thanks!
