I finally decided to built myself a pair of speakers. Never done that
before... I wanted the speakers to be fairly sensitive, because I like
Class A amps, which usually means low wattage. The built took about 2½
month, which isn’t too bad I think.
First impression of the
sound: Dull... Nice midrange, nice voices, but dull and no dynamics.
Bass was too heavy. I considered changing the resistor for the treble to
try to open up the sound, but decided to wait and see (hear) what
happened. In the next 1-2 month it got better, way better.
So I’m glad I didn’t change anything. The sound opened up and the dull
sound completely disappeared, so be patient here...
read that Troels have his speakers placed 20-30 cm from frontwall, and
thought it would work for me in my room. But it didn’t... To get the
bass right, they need to be placed app. 80 cm from frontwall.
Now they sounds how I want them to sound. Crisp and dynamic with tight
bass and lots of details.
