Default NEW Speaker kits HT series starting at $429.00

Click the image to open in full size.

After some time I have been doing some new designs for CSS. These HT designs are required cabinet skills to build these speaker kit.The designs use a 7" width baffle which has lots of benefits to the narrow width for dispersion.Plus we have used a NEW RT2 ribbon tweeter.For those who have not seen these designs before, I will say they are my old designs.I have used the more current VWR mid ,new ribbon RT2 and a new low distortion 7" woofer in the designs.Google RAW Acoustics HT2,HT2i and HT3 and HT3i.All of the reviews reflect the info you will soon be seeing once these kits get out to customers.Cabinet plans are all done for these below HT2Vi MTM plus the HT3Vi MT with a single side firing woofer.

For those customers formerly of RAW acoustics who built cabinets for the HT3 or HT3i I can say the only change for the new drivers to fit is a little larger woofer hole a simple cut with a rabbit bit can cut that larger. With a few small changes in the crossover the HT3Vi kit is a drop in. :whistling:

As I expected this past DIY event the HT3Vi was a HIT


Tuning on the HT2Vi is the same 60hz slot ported 95hz sealed
Tuning for the HT3Vi is the same 28hz slot ported or you can use a 2" PVC port if you wish to not build the slot port.

HT2Vi with 2 VWR126X and CSS RT2 ribbon tweeter $429.00
HT2Vi MLTL with 2 VWR126X and RT2 ribbon tweeter $429.00
HT3Vi with 1 VWR126X, RT2 and side firing LDW7 $649.00


Upgrades will be available for all the kits which will come in the following month.

Again I will start new threads for each of the models for those to talk about the kits in those threads

Al, it was great to finally meet you and see the new product. Thanks for putting in the crazy hours to get these ready for the show! There's some nice sounding new kits available.

This HT3Vi was my fav of the show although that Motus 9" made my blood boil!

Looks great! What's the story in the LDW7? I don't see it on the CSS site and googling turned up nothing.

More info will be coming soon on the new products. The new woofer is a drop in for those designs that used the old SDX7.. Which is a good thing..

Ah, sounds good. I am sure there will be people eager to hear a replacement to the SDX7!

The new woofer is not a replacement for the SDX7. The new woofer is NOT XBL^2 motor, rather the new woofer has another style of motor which is low distortion with similar performance to the SDX7.

Works great so far in the 2 3ways I have used the new woofer in.I have a few other 3 way and a 4 way which will use the same woofer as well.

As close as you can get.
Once we get inventory Klipple testing will be done.

So far every design I have used the SDX7 in the new woofer has been a drop in
