Default Accurate DIY Loudspeakers

Hi all,

I am kind of new here and I was hoping you all could help me out a bit. I am intereted in a DIY loudspeaker design that is very revealing and accurate. I am building a project recording studio and I need my speakers to be as painfully true as possible. I am planning on using a Benchmark DAC1 into a DIY Pass Labs amp (probably the Aleph-X if I can get a board). Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Check out the Thor TL at at the Madisound site. One of the most accurate speakers ever made.

Important questions, I think: How large is the room? How far from the walls and corners will the speakers be placed? How far away will the listener be?

Well I don't exactly have the room yet. I am doing a lot fo planning for a studio I hope to build soon and the monitors are obviously a huge part. Accuracy is the key for me and I am exploring both the room design and the speaker design at the same time so as to hopefully have them work very well together from the get go. Thanks.

Default Studio Design

You should talk to Jim Salk, who was in the sound studio business before
the custom loudspeaker business. He knows a lot about room design.

I hope that you all don't mind if I bump this as I am still looking. If anyone knows of a great pairing of accurate monitors and amps I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much.

If you decide on the Thor TL, you should check out this page. Apparently there is some controversy over the crossover design.

Default Amps and Monitors

How about Bryston 200wpc amplification with Thors
using the new crossover design? The MBOW1 at
www.salksound.com is a fairly priced monitor with a Dennis Murphy
crossover design(murphyblaster.com). There are some proamp jobs
with fans, but the fans are too noisy. Bryston 4 something or other
is pretty much the best amp for the money.
