Hello everyone Very Happy ,

I'm new to the forum so here is a brief introduction:
My name is Etienne, 19 years old, live in the Netherlands and I'm a student in carpentry.
And so you must know I too am very fond of old vintage KEF speakers.

Currently I have a set of DIY speakers, the drivers used per cabinet are 2 KEF B110A in a TL and an old (and very large) Focal T120 tweeter.
These are build by an old friend of my dad in the eighties.
My dad build them aswell but he can't seem to remember who designed them Rolling Eyes .
So my question is does anyone recognizes this design? and I hope that there are any building plans as I want to rebuild the cabinets.

I would like to add a photo but I can't seem to figure out how, any advice is welcome Laughing

Welcome to the site!

Are they possibly based on the 'DALINE' concept'?
Have you the dimensions at hand?

I remember two "official" designs which were published in a UK Hi Fi magazine, possibly Hi-Fi News? I helped build one.

Possibly the basic design was used but with different HF unit?
http://www.tech-diy.com/daline.htm

I have vague recollections of seeing a TL design for the B110 in Klang Ton a German publication...

Colin or Speaker Guru may have more information.

The Toccata and Skyline were in Klang+Ton - copies of plans to colin@hifiloudspeakers.info please Smile .

I've no idea about a KEF/Focal design, BUT without the images the dimensions would be useful, for they could be modified Focal 544 Dalines or an Aria (which used the T120) and KEF units have simply been substituted for the Focal ones.

They are definitly not the Daline type.
Dimensions are modest 26cm(wide) x 30cm(deep) x 69,5cm(high).
When I registered to the forum I gave Terry a picture of the speakers, maybe he can place it on the website? Rolling Eyes

Thanks for your help guys!
