Default Dayton Audio Speaker Kits

We will br supplying dayton products very soon for australia and new zealand. I would like to ask what you all think of dayton loudspeaker products. I for one think they are of good value....hence why we are starting to supply them, but your thoughts would be much appreciated.

Also, your thoughts on tang band products would also be of interest to us.

Regards

Cameron

Yes I have only had experience with the classic line. I havent tried the titanics or the rs range. Its always been way to expensive to give them ago due to shipping costs. Hopefully not for much longer!

I made a subwoofer with the dayton 12" quattro DVC and a dayton plate amp. I was very pleased with its performance and with the support I got from Dayton's tech people when I needed help with the design. Dayton's online forum is extremely high quality as well, with some very knowledgeable speaker builders who are generous with their time and skills.

I have not been able to find a kit offering that included a finished cabinet with matched high efficiency drivers suitable for a sub-10 watt amplifier. Madisound comes close but you have to be a woodworker. Dayton strikes out; at least, on the surface.

I think good value is the right word. You get a good product for a very reasonable price and their quality appears to be very good, as well.

I wish you success in your market.

Thumbs up Dayton products!

Dayton products like crossovers, drivers, inductors, resistors, capacitors etc. are really good for the money!.I have build some Dayton speakers using Dayton cabinets too and I can only say good things about it.

Here in the USA we have Parts Express.com that carries all Dayton products.

Hi, thats really good to hear. I think Dayton audio products have been neglected here in nz and aus because of the high shipping costs. We are working very hard to keep prices reasonable, so everyone can enjoy DIY no matter what their budget is. But parts express is a great site, we are resellers with them. A HUGE selection. I have to say, those dayton kits look very good value for money. Cabinets usually cost alot of money, and they dayton ones look like very good value!

Cameron,
Good luck in your endeavors on that part of the world. I know people on the Asia part of the world (Taiwan, Hong Kong) might like that too (commercial, PR) how knows. Theres a lot going on we don't know (to and from).

I always look at the potential of the racetracks oval shaped (TB's W69s, others) as a nice substitute for Kefs (old school) but the main spec (Fs=35Hz) is always so far way to start with (maybe the W8Q is better with Fs=27Hz). I never did the Kef's anyway, just in case or for a new prototype, the IMF's being one of them.
The Reference's (IMF electronics)
