    Default Free tapered quarter wave pipe cabinets in London

    Hi,

    I have put this ad at diyaudio yesterday.
    I guess it does not hurt to place is here as well, though it might not be the right forum.

    Anyway maybe somebody can have fun with these!

    I have these 2 tqwp cabinets to give away (there is only one on the pics to give you an idea)
    I believe they are 22x35x120cm and I think I followed DHTRob plans:
    DHTRob - Tapered Quarter Wave Tube (TQWT) loudspeakers
    I used 18mm MDF.
    One speaker has some water damage on top (see pics, soap bubble gun...). Nothing that cannot be sanded and repainted.

    They were meant for Philips ad9710 full rangers (9.5'') Unfortunately one of the drivers I bought was defective and finally the project has been forgotten.

    I have been playing with the idea of experimenting with them but I am too busy for that.
    Also my Troels Gravesens's Vifa C17 d'appo is doing great and are not too shabby in the efficiency department.

    The cabinets are for collection only.
    I am in London (1-2mins from a major highway so easy to get to).
    If you can bring some other diy stuff to swap that would be nice, but if you don't you can have them anyway. But please make sure you will use them!


    I can add one ad9710 - not alnico (and what is left of the other one) for a small fee.
    If you feel like like just experimenting with full rangers in a tqwp I have some other vintage 8'' philips drivers for a small fee or to swap. 8'' drivers will need an extra baffle with the correct size opening for the driver.

    I could be interested Greg. Where in London are these? I don't travel far at the moment for medical reasons.

    Hi Geoff,

    E11, near Redbridge roundabout A12/A406 (say 10-15min from M25/M11 junction or 25min from the most eastern part of M25 ie M25/A12)

    No worries.
    I feel the same when there is something to pick up on the other side of London...
