Troels, thank you for another
high value project. More impressions after
"warm up" of speakers.
photos are real, only cuting from background
- my photo-atelier is not very nice:-) Construction: MDF 19-29 mm+19mm
massive oak (painted with teak oil), leather
imitation, weight about 40 kg/each, stands - 29
mm painted MDF + matt laquer, rubber pads Damping - 20mm fiber glass on
top+bottom, 40 mm fiber glass on back wall +
synthetic damping fleese inside.
On photos missing spikes between stand and
enclosure. Speakers looking pretty
massive and imo more stylish like 3-way
floorstanders. First testing with 3 amplifiers
(NAD320, Sony 650 ESD, Dual 1460) - loudspeakers
need better amplifier - I'll tray biamping with
2x Rotel 980.
without any bumping, very decent, smooth and
clear, very good crossing with midbass Mid - meantime little sharp, but
very clear (amp?)
High - without problem, lot of details Depth of stage -
little shallow (amp?) (First) conclusion - very
clear and flat monitor character of sound - maybe
IŽll try built active version:-) One more time thank you
for every DIY loudspeakers fans:-) RK
Richard, thanks for your feedback on the
3W-Classic. For sure some impressive cabinet work
- and the stands really takes a classic design
into the 21st Century.
A good 4" midrange will always be very
revealing and amplifier matching may be important
as well as musical source.
If you find the mid too forward, try 2R7 (R2011)
or ultimately 3R3 in series with the midrange.
Super caps for the midrange (C2021) may be an
option too, although 33+5.6 uF (or 15+15+8.2)
does not come cheap.
