A friend came over for dinner a few weeks back and was so impressed by the sound of my DIY speakers that he ended up making me an offer I couldn’t refuse. He likes music played loud and has spent years trying to find a good pair of large speakers that can go loud and still sound HIFI.
He has now purchased a Nova to go with them.
I can attest that it sounds super powerful and plays very loud without distortion and he is rather happy.
This has left me without speakers so I am on to my next build.
These are going to be pretty special I think…
91db sensitivity, 2 and a 1/2 way top section with 6” + 8” high end seas Nextel drivers playing in first order crossover config. The top section will be powered by my Atom internal amp. They also have a 12” downward firing bass drivers powered by a 250 watt Hypex plate amp with DSP fed from the speaker connection. So a semi active speaker very much like some of the vandersteen speakers.
This thread was requested to show the process. I’ll try my best to update it. Certain component values will have to be removed for privacy reasons as this is a purchased kit.
This is a Troels Gravesen design.
