Been thinking about a setup like this for x-mas. Wondering if any of you guys would consider donating to my x-mas fund?

Hi,

I think this is my first post here, though I've been lurking for awhile. I couldn't help but jump in on this thread. I just completed my most ambitious DIY speaker design and finishing project. The finish took about 6-8 weeks to do. It is a combination of piano black (or as near as I could get it with spray cans and no buffing) and Santos Rosewood veneer over mdf, with a high gloss poly finish, using "Old Master's" poly. Many coats and weeks later this is what I ended up with. It actually exceeded my expectations. This is the HOSS (hybrid omnidirectional speaker system).

I found these in a forum today. Very wild.

"Without first hand knowledge or even any real product knowledge (other than a little JBL stuff) I get the distinct impression that the jbl's would probably walk all over the stradvaris for reproduction quality.
The stradivari, to me, look like they spent as much time designing them to look like highend gear as they did designing at an accoustic level. where as the jbl's have just got that "ugly but it's functional" look."



Unlikely, those JBLs are not only ugly they are about 20 years behind technologically.

Is that what those are... JBL? Uh... those wouldn't fit my decor either, but I imagine I could make room for the electronics. :yes:

Actually I believe the ones above my last post are Avantgardes, for some reason my "quote" did not include the post of the JBLs.

I only just realised you were quoting me. I would pit 20 year old JBL technology against a substantial amount of todays rubbish. New doesn't always equal better.
