    Default Tannoy GRF inspired built

    Here's some pics of my new built. An update on the GRF theme. Loaded with a Beyma co-axial 15" driver

    Very nice! Bet they pack a wallop. Was that a supplied construction kit or did you cut the wood and build it all yourself?

    It's my own design and build. The genesis for the design was the GRF. I would like to take credit for the actual build, but my work isn't that tidy. I had a bespoke joiner construct them. He did a wonderful job of the cabinets.

    They do have a big sound, but still play quiet too

    In what way is it different to a GRF? Looks just like one to me.

    Yes, I know what you mean. A pair of large horns with potent high flux drivers can do it all. Built some myself!

    Nicely done Maarten. How do they sound? Not heard that particular driver.
