I owned a pair of La Petite Audiophile for 6 years and loved almost every second of it. I built them according to plans in a Swedish magazine (Audio/Video). As far as I remember there where two different version of this speaker, one in a shoe-box style enclosure and the other was a floor-standing tall lean enclosure. I think the first was presented first and the other later as a better sounding implementation.

These speakers, in my opinion, are great for any light music and then I mean not too much bass or high energy in any area. They, for obvious reasons, do not handle high levels of deep bass very well and they have a noticable roll-off in the highs. These two quailities however also gives a good overall balance. The mid-range is great and very natural. It is great to listen to a speaker without a crossover and they are very revealing.

I'd recommend them to anybody that wants a great speaker for classic accoustic guitar music and similar. Metal freaks obviously should look elsewehere.

Default Petite L'Audiophile


I made a really small version with only 6 liters netto box volume. I had bass reflex first, but I did not like it, because bass had that one note character typical of bass reflex loaded enclosures. I filled the hole with damping stuff. Well it was then more bass-light than the first L'Audiophile version, but bass control was much better. As a remedy I made an electronic bass enhancement ("loudness"), and it played music wonderful and nothing left to be desired, at least in small room (10ft. by 12ft.).
