What speakers are you going to use with your gainclone group buy kit
For the people that haven't seen the gainclone group buy thread yet.

Anyways, I personally have no idea what sort of speakers I should build for these things.

This thread could be a start...

the GC will deliver 50 watts. Your choice will depend on how loud you play your music. You should take a look at Dennis M. design. He is a x-over genious. The Vifa tower, the Usher two-ways and the MBOW1 (2-way or 3-way) have great reputation. Take a look at the other design as they are good too. Feel free to ask me questions about the 3 designs I mentionned. I have build the first two and will soon build the MBOW1 3-way.

Hope it help !

I am using the Seas Thor TL speakers, built from the kit that I bought from Madisound.

Pictures of my built process for these speakers:

The only problem with building these speakers that they are too good. I built them for my first speaker project, and every project since, has not been able to even get close to matching the quality of the Thor TL speakers. I will keep on trying :)

Power wise, the gainclone is perfect for these speakers. I am running a 2x24vac transformer for these, and the speakers are 4 ohm impedence.

I took these speakers the the Atlanta DIY speakers event, and they were rated the Best of their class > $500, and almost got Best of Show (second place to Jim Griffin's Needles)

Oh Crap!

Speakers, forgot all about them.

Well OK, one amp is going to drive the garden speakers that we were given as a gift and have seldom used.

That what I planning to use with my Gainclone:

Dark Shadow I will be following your project closely as that is what I am going to be making(cept 7 channels instead of 6), but I am going to build a 2 channel amp first to get my feet wet.
