Default What are you guys using for speakers with your amps?

I have an old pair of DCMs that I've replaced the woofers on. Very nice.

Just curious to hear what you guys like out there in the way of speakers.

Thanks much.

Default Nice

Now that's funny, no one has speakers with their amps!

If you do though, please post here and tell me what you like using and how they're working for you.

Fostex 166 BiBs behind my bottlehead S.E.X tube amp or a 3875 chip amp.
The BiBs and a chip amp make a hard to beat combo at $200 -$250 out-the-door.

I loved these speakers when I used to sell Hi Fi. Managed to get the rosewood non-freedom's at half price a few years later as ex displays.

At the moment they are running on the plans published on Decibel dungeon. SMPS power supply and 4 lm3875's passively bi amping them, I have a Kookaburra preamp in the same case with seperate PSU. Source is a 24chip USB DDDAC.

Currently my plan is to dec-amp them with lm3886's and an active filter. Gradually gathering the parts.

I have made a measurement mic to help me design the active crossover...

Beovox MC120.2 (cira: 1985)
- foam surround replaced with custom made byutal rubber version

Powered with LM3886:
- added 250khz passive Twin-T notch filter (kills PC switcher noise)

- X-FI SB0550, U7 SOIC socketed, LPF modified: 820pf NPO, replacing 680pf for lower HF gain
- Opamp(s): LT1115 or OPA627A, single to dual carrier, bypass: 4.7uf tant || with 100nf MLCC X7R, made with "scratch&sniff" proto board
- if dual package, then, LME49720 or OPA2134
- NE/SA5532 still kicks ***, however....

A new project: HDS Peerless towers

Photo of the assembled but not finished product is on page 2. I will be painting these sometime this summer.
