I'm Paul, and my passion is designing and developing speakers. I have been designing and producing custom speakers since a teenager. 4 years ago I got my first 3D printer and was amazed at the potential the technology had and the creative power it gave me. Many improvements to my printer later, and I had a quality 3D printer, but as many find, not a huge amount of practical applications. Ornaments, pots, and other trinkets will only go so far.

Taking the knowledge and personal investment I have made into creating FD61, I have released an open source 50mm driver called FD51-4OS. The goal was to create an educational 3D printed driver which uses as few other components as possible, and can still be used as a replacement to bluetooth speakers and other small audio devices. It is a capable and very cost effective speaker driver.

Becoming a Patreon opens you to:
  • Patreon exclusive version of FD51
  • Behind the scenes look at new developments
  • At least 1 new STL file per month, including exclusive cabinet designs, new cone profiles, suspension etc
  • Access to Thiele & Small parameters of all tested filaments
  • Voting power to pick what to focus on
Start 3D printing practical parts and entire product replacements today! :)

$15 of $250 per month
This will enable me to devote time weekly solely to development of FD51. At this goal, I will look at producing and releasing a more advanced FD51 driver which will be backwards compatible with previous cabinets.
