    Tribute to Lansing-Heritage-Forum and DIY 2405 & 2446 & E145 build

    Hey guys,


    I have been a member in this forum for a couple of years now and have benefited from a lot of whisdom and help on this board.
    My journey started about 10 years ago with a pair of 2470 drivers and from that moment on I had been infected with the JBL-Virus. I started collecting vintage JBL speakers and building enclosures for them. But unfortunatelly Im not a professional, so I was depending on your advices many times.

    .
    This thread is dedicated to all the members that had been a big help for me over the years!
    .

    .

    After all I think I owe you guys at least a report about my final build.
    So I have taken the time to document this during my build by taking pictures. I will post these gradually as Im making progress in my build.

    My setup consists of the following drivers:
    JBL 2405
    JBL 2446 (JBL 2441 dias)
    JBL E-145

    The bass cabinet will obtain a volume of 7,5 cubic ft and be vented with 2 ducts.
    The midrange horn will be a westlake copy.
    Crossovers will be passive.


    .

    Thanks again for your sustained help over the years, I hope you will enjoy the pictures.

    Indeed. It had been air dryed over 10years and didn`t had much tension when sawing it.
    It was very easy to work with...

    Allthough this photos were taken on a different speaker-project of mine, because right now Im not in the joinery and cannot take new pictures of the horns...

    Best regards,
