Yes I will be bringing commercial versions of the Ultra and Ultra Plus!...

Will drive them with modified Chicom EL-34 and KT-88 tube amps using an OPPO CD player up front. It will be interesting to hear how the set up will sound in my room. If I get the mods done on the 845 SET I may bring that too. Hope to see you there!

Just for giggles, an Ultra beauty shot taken at Azul's Kerrville.

Thanks John! That's awesome! I can't wait.

Your room is always a highlight for me. The voicing of your OB's really appeal to my ears. See you there.

Default Also appearing in a limited engagement....

The second OB will be the Ultra Plus! I think it will be a popular item. Just shy of 90 dbw and flat to below 30 Hz. And the mid and upper end is handled by the excellent Seas FR22. Think you will enjoy this design... a lot!

That is sexy John. Love the black/natural contrast.

Hi guys, I have ordered the drivers for the Ultra. I am going to attempt to use my mini dsp for an active crossover and I have large 4 channel classdaudio amplifier to use. Since I already have a subwoofer and don't need output below 50hz from the Manzanitas, could I make the baffle around 18=20 inches wide? Would there be other significant effects other than the bass output? I am trying to make it WAF as possible.

Default Ultra

John, Pano,

I finally have my Ultra finished today.
I have Jensen 18 mH for the woofer, n Solen 14 ga for the full range. Have them listen for about an hour now, sound promising and with lot of bass, punchy deep bass. Will give detail comment after some 300 hrs.

Albert
