Agreed, and I would add to this I just did some with Gell Stain and is by far the best result on birch ply I have gotten.I’m sure he uses a good birch ply, so staining it would be easy. Just be careful to keep glue off the faces that will get the stain. Painters tape at the glue joints can be your friend.
Those sure look a lot like the driver Louis is using over at Omega. Probably the exact same driver actually. Nice find.These might be fun to try in the Frugels.
When listening to your favorite music, you expect the sound to be pristine, unmarred by mechanical imperfections and acoustic inconsistencies. The 93078, a unique full-range loudspeaker, reproduces music as accurately as possible for high-end, single transducer systems without cross-over...store.miscospeakers.com
good for you; they look great. i don't think my woodworking skills are up to a veneer job
I own two pairs of Omega speakers plus an extra set of drivers. They are all his latest RS5 drivers. These drivers look identical to the Oaktron model. Louis applies his decal to the rear of the magnet (it states 94.5 dB) and some sound deadening material to the rear of the basket. That is not to say that they are the same: The spec sheet lists the driver at 0.73 kg while my own weigh in at 790g. The sheet also indicates the cone is hemp fiber. Louis used hemp in the last iteration of his OEM driver and the latest driver is a proprietary fiber mixture. I know that the OEM versions shared magnet/basket assemblies (Louis offered trade-in for old drivers which he would use as donors for the new cones) with differing cone materials.Those sure look a lot like the driver Louis is using over at Omega. Probably the exact same driver actually. Nice find.
something like this? thanks!Didn't see this, use a conditioner. It k÷ps softer wood like birch and pine from over soaking stain. This avoids blotch.
