Projects

Speaker Design

Pictured above is a B&C 8FCX51 coaxial speaker I saved from the dumpster at work (lucky me). It's placed in a quarter-wave enclosure which I designed and constructed myself.

I've also finished a few pairs of bookshelf speakers, which I enjoy doing - it also helped me learn woodworking along the way!

Although I've just begun my exploration into high fidelity audio, I'm learning quickly. I find it best to stay organized, so as I learn and collect information I will put it up here. You can find some below already:

DSP

As I collect notes on DSP algorithms, I will post them here. My plan is also to write a series of applets in JavaScript to aid in enclosure design, crossover design, EQ's and biquad equations, and more. Unfortunately, since this website is so new, I don't have anything to show.

3D Printing

I recently purchased a Creality Ender 3 3D printer, mainly to fool around with. After getting the bed leveled just right, and getting my Cura 4.1 profile configured, my prints starting turning out great. Pictured above is an a conical reflector I printed using one of my earlier Cura profiles (which is why it looks so rough). I'm testing it with a Tang Band T2-2136SA speaker module. The idea is to have the speaker face downwards at the reflector and the sound will radiate out in a more omnidirectional pattern.

If I do any more interesting prints, I will document them here.
