Illuminismo

Here's a picture of a kit I designed that was built by a DIY in Mexico. All SB Acoustics Satori drivers, dual 9.5" woofers, 5" mids, and beryllium tweeter. I have a Michigan DIY building three for his L/C/R. If you need high output but more refined sound these drivers are the ticket.

That's a pricey build. $385 per tweeter, $200 for each 9.5" woofer, and $131 for each midrange... over $1800 just for the drivers for a L/R pair. That's a bit rich for me, but it looks like a fantastic setup.

I love Satori drivers. Absolutely top notch sound but fairly priced.

I was gonna buy Satori drivers for my Atmos heights but decided against it because of the low efficiency, they are your typical hi-fi driver in the 85-90db range. Maybe I made the wrong choice, I really don't know...

High sensitivity isn't the only route to good sound.

didn't you end up going with something like 16 or 32 low efficiency drivers for the bass section on your heights?


Rick, thanks for sharing some details. looks like a very nice high end and full range 3 way
