Question nOrh Kits Advice Needed

I guess I've bought into the hype of nOrh speakers, and I am looking at buying the nOrh mini 9.0 kit, which is 1/3 the cost of the factory-built speaker.

However, I have never done a DIY project, so I'm nervous about blowing $500.

Has anyone here done a nOrh kit? If so, how difficult would it be for someone who has never done this kind of thing? Also, how long should I expect the project to take from start to finish?

Thanks for the help!

Howard

Hey, Howard, where'd you find the kit prices? I went to the Norh site and did not see any mention of kits. I have always been intrigued by Norh speakers. Are you going to build the enclosures from scratch, or just go get a pair of bongos? (kidding, kidding)..

Does that include the drivers?

Hi guys! I'm assuming it's all the parts. I stumbled on to the consolidated price page, which is at: http://www.norh.com/info/pricing.html

I assume (man, how I hate that word) the kits area available, since it was Mr. Barnes who recommended the mini9.0 kit to me. That recommendation is very interesting to me, since I didn't ask about kits in my email, and I think he makes more money off the finished product.

If I can do the kit myself, the money I save can go into some nice marble pedestals.

I've searched the net for several hours, and can't find anything about the kits.

Hi, I am about to buy nOrh Mini 9.0 DIY kit as well, and it DOESN'T include driver units, I have checked this with Michael...
Here is the 'hidden' DIY page - http://www.norh.com/DIY.htm -Copy/Paste the whole address including .htm.
Can you recommend a place to look for Scan Speak 8530K00 and 97000 regarding this project? I am based in Europe but am finding them very (too) expensive, cheapest being around 160. Any suggestions are very welcome...

They're about the same here (I found the drivers for about US$180 each) at meniscusaudio.com, and with the struggling US dollar that's cheaper than what you're finding, but with shipping it probably would not be cheaper.

My recommendation would be that you look around more before buying. There are a lot of kits and published designs available.
