Tell her that your future wife might be more agreeable.

What were those speakers? I picked up some Altec 755Es a little while ago and realized that the recommended boxes, 2' cubed, were close to the size of those speakers you showed us.

So I was wondering whether those drivers were, in fact 755s.

Oh, and what about those little round aluminum amps?

hey kt

i think those were some 7" focals i was messing with in mdf/rosewood boxes. i built those for nyNOISE show 2002.

Sounds great, but you can never really be sure if the cat made any difference.

enough about looks
tell us how it sounds
i have not heard those daytons myself but their very low sensitivity (85dB) scares me
to me personaly low efficiency drivers sound constipated
something about poor transient response, no dynamics, dont know exactly
but as long as the owner of the speaker is happy...

yes they don't sound like high efficiency drivers. however with four the efficiency is reasonable considering the owner runs a cheap ss rig.

in this configuration they sound a bit thick but not objectionally so. on axis i felt they sounded tizzy (cone ringing i reckon) so i designed a low box which puts you off axis at all times. also they are not directional which in this case is desirable as they are in a painter's studio and he moves around a lot and listens while he works.

i feel these sound better than the MCM version which came out a while ago and was put into a commercial design by the bottlehead boys on the west coast . they came up with a treatment to make the cones ring less.

my friend jc put 'em (the old MCM version) in a big open baffle line array, i think 12 per side with a raven ribbon to cover the top end and a sub. that worked very nicely in a 4000 sq ft space with a 16ft ceiling.

in all, at the price these guys are well worth experimenting with and there's been a lot of diy precedent...

re: the cosmetics...the owner of these and i saw this show together:

http://guggenheim.org/exhibitions/si...rms/flash.html

these speakers were partially designed to make the same statement about commercial audio that these painters and sculptors were making about art.

i believe so, the more of the drivers used, the better
i am familiar with that design, seen the web page

recently a friend of mine gave me two pairs of very old magnavox fullranges taken out of old consoles
speakers are in pristine condition, alnico, extremely efficient, sound absolutely wonderfull, no tweeter needed, sweet midrange, offcourse lack of bass

i put one pair in small closed boxes, nothing fency to help the bass, so they are a little bass shy
i replaced original teac two way crapy little speakers on my girlfriend teac mini hifi, amazing improvement ...
volume is set half what it was, no equalized correction engaged....i am just so sorry that i dont have a dozen of these drivers so i could build a serious line array
imagine line array with dozen of drivers each with efficiency over 95 dB
plus subwoofer it would be perfect

anyway, if you are happy with those daytons, thats what counts
i was happy with small 5" radio shack fullrange cat. number 40-1041, i got some when they were discontinued
this little driver is amazing, goes all the way up, great midrange, i wish i had bought more of those....

noooo, four and more is infestation
believe me, two cats is the same amount of work as one cat
if you have one cat, you have to keep it bussy, interact with it
if you have two, they pretty much take care of themselves
have you ever observed a litter of kitties?
