CNO built by Tore/Norway
I recently completed my CNO's. First version of crossover
with TJL2W-cabinets. The finish is walnut burl veneer.
I guess you'd rather
like to get some feedback on your latest version of
crossover and cabinet design, but I purchased all the
parts and materials days before you made the changes.
Perhaps you remember I sent you and email, a bit worried
that the first version was no good. Well, I got some
comforting words from you and went ahead with the
A lot of work for an amateur such as myself, but I
enjoyed it. It's almost a bit sad that I'm finished. When
I first listened to the speakers I was disappointed. The
sound didn't the match the size of the speakers, they
sounded like a couple of bookshelf-speakers. The midrange
and treble was however impressive from start.
After a few days the sound changed completely. The bass
became full and deep. So I agree with Terry from Canada;
break-in is required for these drivers. I've listened to
a lot of different music lately and I didn't find many
recordings that don't sound great on these speakers.
Because the sound is so detailed they have no mercy on
bad recordings, but that's a price I'm happy to pay as I
prefer listening to quality music. The speakers perform
great at all listening-levels, and sometimes I'm not even
aware if the music is turned up loud or not.
Thank you for a
great design and for answering my questions during the
process. Take care, Tore from Stavanger, Norway
