Hi Troels.
I finished the CNO-25 kit last year November(sorry I'm a bit delayed) and took me about 6 weekends to finish. I went for a silky black finish.
I decided on these because of the decent efficiency and the small footprint. I also love the look of those nextel coated drivers! It took a while for the SEAS drivers to break in and the bass was a little disappointing at first, after about a month of daily listening the speakers just came alive, the bass was punchy, controlled and a whole lot more than I bargained for! I used a 1R0 resistor in the tweeter circuit and to my ears those Crescendo's are detailed and revealing, just what I wanted. This is a really well designed loudspeaker and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone with the time(and money) to build them. These will stay in the living room for a long, long time. Thanks again for all your dedication Troels, you are a real asset to the DIY loudspeaker community.
Ryno.
