    Revalator DIY Speakers and Music Server Rig:

    I built the cabinets to the deminsions of the drawings. I used fiddleback maple face and 3/4 mahogany ply on the sides and back. Madisound will sell you the covered grills they are black cloth. I upgraded the crossover caps and inducers. Great sound form the Scan-Speak drivers.

    Very nice job. Did you use veneered mdf for the fronts or lumber stock? I'd love to make a pair of those when I get the time and room. Got a bunch on the Honey-do list right now though.

    Gordy the fiddleback maple is 6/4 lumber, the other half is in-set in the cabinet. I glued the front panel and designed the back to be removable like the Harbeth. With damping material, crossovers and heavy wood each speaker weighs 48 pounds.

    Yeah, nice speakers. Its nice to see a pair built to get an idea of the size. What do you mean by 6/4 lumber?

    The 6/4 Maple front (six quarters lumber) is the rough cut size. That size is approx 1.5 inches thick before I planned it smooth. The cabinets are very ridge with three ribs inside. The drawings are on the Zaph web site link above. If you don't have a wood skills and tools, buy the boxes.
