Well, a lot has happened in the last 5 years… one of the really big changes was Paul going on to law school (then graduating, moving to Colorado, clerking at the Co Supreme Court, and building a monster truck, leaving me at the reins. It really has been a long time! So, just a quick… Continue reading 5 YEARS?!
If you’ve seen the new Field Coil prototype, you know that Wild Burro has a new cone. The short story is that it’s a simple paper that sounds much like the old cone, but with a bit more high frequency extension, and its black instead of green. However, I’d like to take the opportunity to… Continue reading NEW CONE
Some seasons the BetsyK is more popular, sometimes its the Betsy. Lately it seems as if everybody is building OBs, so I have too many BetsyKs in stock. Bad for me, good for you! The BetsyK is my speaker of choice for enclosures of any sort. But, it can also be pressed into use on… Continue reading SALE: 25% OFF BETSYK! $41.25 EACH!
My system info is badly outdates, so I figured I’d start where it counts: with the speakers! The BIBs stayed in Minnesota when we came west. The basic open baffles were serving me well, but the best thing about WBAL is how inexpensive it is to try something new! OBs with helper woofers have been… Continue reading OB’S WITH WOOFERS!
I’m excited to introduce a brand new, one time offering from Wild Burro Audio, The Purple Speaker.

The Qts is high enough… Continue reading AN $18 FULLRANGE: THE PURPLE SPEAKER!

It includes a pair of 15″ woofers, an outboard amplifier for them that includes a crossover and level control and all the cables you need for <$300. You can order direct from his site. This is really… Continue reading ZILLAAUDIO’S BETSY & BOOMER KIT
I’ve been fielding a few questions about the actual dimensions. I’ll try and get a good graphic from my OEM, but for now: I use a 7 3/8″ hole. It could be a little smaller, but this gives you some room for error. The OD is 8.25″ and the fastener centers are 7 7/8″ across.… Continue reading DIMENSIONS
Luminary designer Seigfried Linkwitz has been a proponent of multi-way open baffles for many years. Recently, commercial manufacturers like Jamo, AV123 and others have introduced highly successful models. And of course, the panel speaker (electrostat and planar) folks have been there all along. Getting the midrange driver out of the box brings an intoxicating openness… Continue reading WHY A SINGLE DRIVER OPEN BAFFLE?
I didn’t know if anybody would be interested in two pairs, but I’ve already had an inquiry. So, how about this: Buy one pair get a second pair (ordered at the same time) at a 20% discount. That’ll save ya’ $15 on a pair of Betsy’s or $16 on a pair of BetsyK’s. If you… Continue reading 20% DISCOUNT ON A SECOND PAIR!
