That got me searching the Web and there was the Frugel Horn FH3 using a 4" driver which looks like a great project and maybe some great sound. I wonder what "In the Wake of the Wind" will sound like.

Some months ago I started the design of a CNC router and before I got very far into the project it was clear that my shop was a disorganized mess. I started by building a lot of storage, mainly wall cabinet and specialized cabinet for my power tools, drill press, miter saw, etc. At this time I am completing a router table and cabinet all of which can be found on my workshop projects blog, see links. One thing my shop needs is some great sound, before I get back to the CNC router project.

Materials and Parts:
The material cost including drivers should be less than $150. for a pair of Mk3's. Though the development builds are done with baltic plywood, which I do not have access to, we will use the cabinet grade plywood from HD. I have built several cabinets with this plywood which is great plywood and void free. As an alternative the Lowes Blonde 18mm (23/32") plywood could be used.
