Hi Stew

Congrats, they look very nice.

In pic 2,2 we can see the xo. Is that big black thing a cap? What value is it?

Care to enlighten us as to how you built them? How they sound?

Morel Navin, The web site only mentions the mid which is an MDM55. The tweeter I'll take a wild guess as being an MDT32 and the base driver maybe an MW166?

Very nice. Since I'm contemplating building some speakers with Morel drivers (though not the ones you have used) My question is how do they sound!!

Regards,

Tony.

i have only used the MDT33. it is not bad compared to the 9900 it is a little lispy. however it does not bite like the 9900. the 99000 can get ugly occasionaly. in the price range of the mdt32 i'd prefer the 9500. best value for money.

Thanks for the comments!
Yeah the tweeter is a MDT 32-s, mid MDM55 and the bass driver MW266, This was my first attempt at diy.

The sound/music seems very natural with good depth, no obvious anomalies that stand out, the sound stage seems pretty accurate and I was surprised with the large sweetspot. I think I could increase the output from the tweeter by another 1-2db. I have them sitting more off axis, Bass is tight and keeps up pace but not very deep, I have a well integrated sub that takes over so that don’t matter.

The mid/tweet crossover point is quite high so I think this is good when using a cheap tweeter. but I cant fault it's smoothness, certainly not edgy or brash. The mid's clarity is outstanding but it's a pity it doesn’t go a bit lower for the sake of the crossover point. An ATC sm75 costs far too much!! There may be just a very very slight smear in the lower mid but I have to be really really listening out for it on certain pieces of music but it's not something you’d notice if you didn’t know to look for it. still it's all about compromises in the end.


It's been a very steep learning curve and a lot of fun. Now time to start my next project

Stew.
