Question Mini ProAc 2.5: A.O.S. Studio 15

What do you think about this speaker? It is like a ProAc 2.5 reduced to 15 litres. Can I use something like this for the rear channels? (The front is a pair of 2.5)

A.O.S makes very good speakers, in a hifi magazine (Hobby Hifi) these speakers are always very good tested. See also their site for references.

But I never heard one .

It would most likely use the 18W/8545 or K woofer in smaller volume, not the 8535 woofer

Can I simply replace 8535 with 8545 without changing anything in the original design? Or the crossover should be modified because of the slightly different parameters?

No, not really. The woofers have different size magnets and cone construction. You could probably keep the tweeter crossover, but modify the woofer section.

Please read the FAQs in the 2.5 clone website.

I realize a Proac 2.5 speaker with different size than the origimal model.
The filter is the same, the speakers and volume box too.
It is 33 feet high.

Default 33 feet ?

You must know Jack ( from Jack and the bean stalk ). How tall are you ? My neck would break looking up at your speaker.
They look very nice. Now can you scale it down to 33 inches ?
How do they sound compared to the usual box?

sorry for the error

of course it's 33 inches.

Concerning sound, the box is damped with bitum on all sides, and there are two braces, so the sound is very good, at low and high level.

Sorry for my error

Default just kidding.

Hi SDF,
I was just kidding.No need to apologise to anyone .. you didn't hurt anyones feelings. It was obvious that the 'feet ' was a typo.
The speaker looks really nice. Is that real veneer on the (MDF?)box ? The colour in the picture is very attractive. How much did you spend on the drivers alone ?
Great job.
Cheers.

500 euros for all drivers (4), it's expensive but....it's not bad loudspeakers.

The MDF used is just varnished with a paintbrush.
The result is really good, I speak about sound of course, it works very well with my Zenquito.

which is here:
