Making of Musical affairs Grand crecendo cabinets for EMS fieldcoil speakers.

After purchasing these amazing sounding speakers couple of years ago, I couldn't find time to make cabinets for them.

They are suitable/ preferred for OB set-up. I was thinking of using them with my RCA 1432a field coil woofers as a two-way open baffle setup like musical affairs' mini OB. But I changed my mind and went for 'Grand Crecendo' cabinets.

I am posting some pics of the making of these cabinets here. Due to lockdown the finishing work is pending. Will update with more pics soon.
Hope you guys appreciate this work just like my previous Saba papillon cabinets. FB_IMG_1532288975440.jpg

Thanks n Regards

Awesome Shafic.

Thank you sir

Amazing, precise work by the carpenters. These must be amazing sounding.... That phase plug makes perfect sense.

Any idea on the TSP of these ? I know the Qts varies.... Was the FC PS included with the drivers ? There seems to be a lot of experimentation in that direction too with tube PS.
Hi Sameer,
Thank you for the appreciation.
I am attaching TSP of these drivers. Model EMS eb12ex.
No FC PS came along with them. I purchased the PS devices locally.
Yes. I am planning to make a tunger PS.
Regards.

Wow. Very nice.
Thank you sir

@shafic Amazing specs ! From boxed to Open baffle. I guess 10 Volts or more for your build. Excellent response. One can live with this single driver build, playing from tube amps. Congrats ! Share some videos of these beauties making magic !

Brilliant mate! looks very good... are these EMS LB12EX, what amps drive the full range?

...
Thank you buddy.
I have few options, marantz 7 with McIntosh 2505, Harman kardon a700, Scott lk 72b, Philips 9015, Western Electric 300b......
Will try and post the results soon.
I think Harman kardon will blend with them nicely as it has power n performance.
Regards

nice build, impressive workmanship.

Those wood phase plugs contrast the cabinets well. Love the design
Thank you.
I am planning to put wooden rings and some carvings around the rim. And going to name them 'ems CROWN' :)

Thank you for your kind words.
Will definitely post finished pics soon. Awaiting for the covid situation to normalise.

If you are from Mumbai you can come n listen when it is finished.
BTW videos can't justify the experience.
Quality of recording, room resonance come in the way of judging the quality of the speakers.
Regards

You already had a great finish there. What a built. Hats off the carpenter.
Thank you bro.
He is very good in his profession and expert in transforming my designs and ideas.
And one famous pharse used in mumbai is,
'Paisa Phekho, Tamasha Dekho'.;)
