Default Carlsson speaker, SONAB OA14

Well I found a pair of OA14, just a little problem they don't have any xover. Anyone having any info or schematics of the xover?
Maybee some other swede owning a pair that could check it up for me?

Found this: http://www.google.nl/search?hl=nl&ie...a14+filter&lr= and this: http://www.carlssonplanet.com/index.asp?lang=sv . They seem to have a forum too.
Someone will have to do some translation.
Hope this helps.

Default Thanks

Thanks on my way to post at the forum now. Using an active xover at 1800Hz right now and it sound darn good, but not as airy as I rember them to be.

Is it just swedish thing loving carlssons designed speakers?

there are lots of supporters of the carlsson brand of speakers here in sweden (the oa5 is THE most sold speaker ever here)

though i have only listened to oa12 and oa5 with various setups i will buy the new oa58:s when/if i upgrade my rig.

Well I realized that when I went on the forum, I got the schematics for the xovers. Built them and I have been sitting on front of them all day just enjoying music, it's is even better when what I remembered. It's strange that the 25 years old speaker costing $40 in the secondhand store, plus some filter parts. Could kick my mega bucks speakers out in every aspect accept thightness below 50Hz. I'm convinced that Stig Carlsson has to be the best speaker designer ever, working with the room instead of against it.

I just got bit by the carlsson bug, and have told my brother in sweden to buy every modell he could lay his hands on and ship them to me.

Thanks for the links!
