    Default Love or hate speaker cabinets I made for Tannoy MG 15's

    Hi,

    I inherited MG 15's in sealed Lanchester cabinets. And just made these cabinets at home, working with brilliant traditional carpenters. One inch solid Teak wood cladding on one inch birch ply with half inch sound damping and 2.5 inches of rock wool. Aperiodic shelf, like the old Lockwood cabinets but with ports tuned to 29 Hz (highly controversial design)
    Five feet tall, 143 kgs each.

    We started with a log of teak wood



    And birch ply





    The shelf you see at the bottom is also a window pane brace but the cut outs weren't yet cut out when the photo was taken.



    Working with teak wood is a joy













    calf toning exercises

    do push ups work your abs



    short vs long term goals









    Let me know what you think !

    Happy to answer questions.

    Regards,

    Denzil

    They look really well made. An improvement over the Lancaster boxes I'm sure. You did a good job with the bracing 'shelves'.

    Blimey..... you get a whole load of teak veneer from a baulk of timber that size!!!! LOL.

    Seriously, what a pleasure to see cabinets made with REAL timber to such a level of quality. I sincerely hope they sound as good as they look.

    Well done, beautiful job. . .

    Beautiful cabinets! I hope you will plant a few teak trees to replace those used.

    I'm a serious conservationists. Have been working on environmental issues for many years. And now concreting on the protection of marine turtle nesting beaches, one such beach happens to be my property. The teak I got was obtained from teak plantations. Wild teak is not logged anymore (thankfully). The Instagram link in my signature (below) will show you what I do.

    Thanks ! They sound magnificent. Tent to be slightly bass heavy but not boomy. But I'm working on that. Many because of room acustics, I think.

    Well done. Teak is a great wood and, as you know, no problem in using it so long as it is from sustainable sources. It is a luxury though to be able to use solid wood rather than just veneers. I wouldn't like to think how much those "slabs" would cost in the UK!

    Amazing. They are a work of art. I love that level of handmadeness! I can only imagine that they sound great too.
