Abby Clones

Made these over the summer after finding a pair of Fostex FE 167E drivers in

the junk shop.



They are based on a design by Cain and Cain and called Abbys.

They also owe something to the Voigt Tapered Quarter wave pipe.

My friend David helped with the tricky bit clamping and glueing the cabinets together one weekend this summer.

After a good long time running in the drivers they sound pretty good.   Finally I got a speaker switch on Yahoo so I can compare the Clabbys (cloned abbys, not my pun…) with my Crysler CE 1II.  Repainted the switch in gold hammerite, the gold lame boob tube of the paint kingdom, and updated the speaker terminals.


Note the 8 Ohm dummy load so I can listen to the EL 34 single ended amp through headphones.
