Default Congrats!

So, give us a review of the results!

And your opinion of the LDX25?

Why did you not go with the waveguide?

Thanks!

what exactly are you looking for? (if it's measurements of the complete box, you'll have to be patient for a little while, I want to enjoy some music first)

great tweeter, very well built, integrates seamless with the VWR126X, clean upto neighbour unfriendly levels

2 reasons: #1 was not available when I started the build, and #2 it's too big for this box

Well, something like this......preferred the waveguide, but need more bass, which was more important.

Remember, buddy, I built the Triton by Jeff Bagby and love this tweeter more than any I have heard.

Enjoy listening and when you have time, please report back.

Thanks!

Mr. Henkjan, hope you are enjoying your speakers. If we could tear you away from listening, Christmas shopping, etc. etc. have a question.

Are you happy with the result thus far?

And will you give a review soon?

Thanks!

yes, very happy.

a review (I'm no good in this):
the short version: the best speakers I have built or owned. period.

the long version: this thing does it all: imaging at least as good as a good full range (singers are as real as if they are in the room), deep and punchy bass (drums are alive), powerfull sound, clean also at very high levels (no fatique at all), revealing every detail in the music but also every shortcoming in the rest of the chain (these are the reason I built an Hypex ncore amp and I am going to upgrade my DAC to a Sabre).

That is good news, indeed. The LD25X tweet is really a gem, says Jeff B., and I agree with him. I do not need to look further with this quality already here and ready to use.

I am not good at those reviews either as my knowledge is limited in sharing my thoughts, but I try.

So, would you care to compare with what speakers you have "build or owned" with the Heavyweight?

Sounds like you are very happy with your build. I am very curious as a friend and myself are looking for a build like this or similar, (as I mentioned) with plenty of bass and with the tweet and of course the mid. I love the wide range woofer, so I guess I can say....the whole CSS line of XBL speakers. We just can't do the speaker designing thang.

Could you elaborate on "the reason you build the Hypex Ncore Amp"? Why this type of speaker?

Thanks
