Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Well, for some time it seems, the remarkable Mr. Krutke has been recommending Indonesian drivers...

I actually have an SB thing or two around I have not had the time to test, because of the press of other work.

I am also told that Massachusetts, USA's Aerial has used SB drivers.

As far as the OP's original suggestion, I think it needs refinement.

But I would, in the spirit of his DIY orientation, want to make the competition one based on parts costs (INCLUDING CABINETS), with woodfinishing and assembly labor (as well as taxes and shipping) written off.

Now... for a speaker I'd want to own for myself and not cringe every time I fired it up, let's just arbitrarily "norm to" my first non-Irving Fried major audio purchase, that being Spendor SP1s, circa 1987: MSRP $1200.

That being, for this competition, $1200 for drivers, crossovers, and passable MDF cabinets.

A little higher than Madisound's Seas A26 10" 2-way kit, but one can live with a cheaper cabinet.

And Madisound has many other kits as examples.

I am too busy to take a role in setting such a competition up, and, unlike the Association for Independent Music awards, where they only send you CDs or downloads, this competition involves receiving many boxes into one's garage, so... dunno even about that.

amb,

john
