After having owned a B&W speaker setup of 604S3, LCR600S3 and 602S2, I have finally taken the next step into the DIY world.
I have previously built a couple of Aurasound NS-18 subwoofer for my HT. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1349527/building-dual-aurasound-ns18-sealed
The sound from these are just incredible and they are still going strong, even with a single EPX4000 on each subwoofers...
The dynamics improved clearly when going from 1 to 2 EPX4000 so they need a bit of power in reserve.
Anyway, I have been looking for a way to upgrade my mains and the rest of my surround speakers.
I wasnt quite satisfied with the tweeter and the dynamics of the 604S3, and I almost went for a pair of B&W CM9.
The Klipsch speakers, RF-7,RF-83, RF-63 has played well in my ears, but i have noticed a kind of distortion from the tweeters/horn they are using.
That has been my reason to not take the Klipsch road.
I have been following the SEOS build threads for a long time now and I have choosen to build a pair of Tempest 12
, a Fusion 8 Alchemy MTM
and a pair of Fusion 8 Alchemy
The Kits have been ordered from DIYSoundgroup in the beginning of September.
After some delay with JetCarrier i have finnaly got both packages.
The DNA compression driver is a beast!
I just have to order some MDF and get started building right away.
The Tempests will not be finished until Erich sends me the two SEOS 12 Waveguides which unfortunately were missing in the shipments.
Just hoping they will be sent soon as I have about 3 weeks of transport time to my place in Norway.
Its Xmas holiday soon...
I have already tested the Eminence Delta PRO 12a and the compression drivers.
The Delta PRO's is mounted in a sealed box (wich I used in a car before) and the compression drivers are used without the waveguides.
MiniDSP is used as a crossower.
Even now they perform very well and I have got a feeling of the potential of the finished product.
I have been following this DIY community for a while now and I have the full respect for the knowledge and the effort that is beeing put into these threads.
Build threads "seems"
to be wanted here so I thought I might contribute with my projects.
Updates will follow....
