Welcome!

I have been a vinyl nut ever since my dad showed me how to play his Technics record player many years ago. I have also been a woodworking nut ever since my grandfather showed my how to use his bandsaw when I was five. That being said I would like to welcome you to my blog: Engrained Audio. I will be posting both DIY audio projects I find on the web and some projects of my own. Enjoy!

Amazing "Odyssey 2" Speakers

It is really worth looking at the build pictures for this project. Lluís Pujolàs, an artist from Spain, spent 400 hours designing and building these spectacular speakers that weigh over 300 pounds each. They are based on the Bowers and Wilkins Nautilus speakers seen below which are some of the best sounding speakers in the world. Of course the Odyssey's probably didn't cost $60,000 to build which is what the Nautilus would set you back. It is amazing what quality DIY work can get you! The link to the translated build notes can be found here.

  1. Enjoyed reading your blog. We've got a really cool looking old radio box you can have. It's just the shell but i'm sure you could do something really good with it.
