my review of the speakers....you can delete my
previous comments and add this one to photos....
one year of occasional work, I finally managed to
put all loudspeaker ingredients together. My CNO
loudspeaker version is tilted back 5 degrees .
The cabinet is made from 22 / 28 mm MDF and all
the walls are damped with 4 mm bitumen pads and
recycled foam. The cabinet is quite heavy, but it
is dead silent. Crossover consist of Mundorf
baked air coils and Mcap capacitors.
started with CNO project I buy drivers for TJL2
project. Seas magnesium midbass speaker sounds
very clean with absolute lack of audible
distortion and have a great bass. But it has very
low sensitivity and compared to Nextel unit, it
lacks the drive, punch and life. For my taste,
magnesium driver sound too clean for it`s own
good. With W18NX speaker music flows simply
naturally and thanks to bigger magnet you will
say goodbye to some deep bass, but you will gain
in dynamics and headroom.
loudspeaker sounds simply astonished. It is not
the speaker which will impress your friends with
subsonic bass. For listening it, you have to take
some time, slightly dim the lights, feed it with
appropriate software and then you can simply
enjoy. The integration between tweeter and
midbass is simply superb. Midrange is beautifully
open and transparent and never sound harsh, even
with not so good recordings. The tweeter is
absolutely phenomenal. Forget about SS8513
sibilants here. I would say it could compare with
magnetostatic tweters with ease. Bass not enter
subsonic dimensions, but it has a
"snap" and can produce a loud
"thump" instead of "whomp"
when required. Soundstage is very good and
loudspeakers really disappeared when they are
feed with some nice music. Interesting...I also
tried notch filter, but it simply kills the life
and transparency of the speakers.
I think this
speaker is really worth every cent and compared
to popular Proac 2.5 speakers, it is several
steps higher or nearer to the hifi heaven:))))))
