Cabinet plans

Technology for discerning audiophiles

The Lowther designs show a single drawing from the complete set to give a potential constructor an impression of the enclosure's complexity. Free sets of plans are available from Lowther Loudspeaker Systems Ltd. in PDF format if requested when Drive Units are ordered. There is a charge for plans, but they are free if requested when drive units are ordered.
Bespoke Lowther Cabinets

A top-quality drive unit needs a top-quality cabinet.  One that is precisely designed to match the acoustic parameters of the device it houses. Internal specifications can be complex and will vary substantially from unit to unit, but they must all be very precisely constructed in order to maximise the full potential of your equipment.

We want to offer you the very best choice in loudspeaker cabinets and have two ways to assist you.

If you have the skills and enthusiasm to build your own cabinet or have your local craftsman build it for you, please contact us for our free cabinet plans, designed to complement your purchase. Choose from one of the various plans compatible with your drive unit.

And please do send us pictures of the finished items, we love to see what other Lowther family members have made. Our social media details are on the homepage, or you can email us.

But alternatively, if you’d prefer us to supply you with superb, handmade cabinets, built to order in a finish of your choice, follow the ‘Want it built?’

Want it built?

Lowther is pleased to confirm that we are once again able to supply high-quality cabinets, built to order here in the UK.

Obviously, we couldn’t entrust their construction to just anyone.  Which is we are delighted to have entered into a collaboration with a local master-craftsman, Malcolm Williamson.

Malcolm is a true master craftsman and is primarily an expert at building traditional, wooden stringed instruments that are highly valued by musicians around the World. But he also has extensive experience in making bespoke furniture, and crucially for us, loudspeaker cabinets.

All our cabinets are individually handmade to order, with a solidly constructed framework, incorporating your choice of drive unit and with an outer finish from our wide range of beautiful veneers.  Each comes with its own purpose-made flight-case at no extra cost, to protect it in transit. We suggest you retain these cases for use during future house moves.

To discuss how we can help you bring a real, finishing touch of class to your audio system, you can reach us via the details on our Contacts page.
