Default Anyone try cloning Kharmas?

These are going to weigh a ton. Lot of work but I think they'll be worth it.

I never liked the look of Karma's. I imagine they sound pretty good though and that's what matters I guess.

I haven't seen any clones or anything similar. Why not try something unique or an improved variation?

Edit: Didn't realise you'd started building them, I guess you edited the picture attachment in after I posted the above. Looks good.

This is what I was going to build until Kharmas caught my eye. Still not sure how they're going to look. They'll end up as a combination of several models for sure

No problem. My last build was my own design ( pic below). It came out great but sometimes I get the clone bug ;/.

Interesting design.

It reminds me of the B&W 700 series with a mix of original bits. Definitely different.

kharma's ceramiques have always been my favorite looking speakers, never heard them though. I saw one person, forget who, that did a really good knock off of the smaller floorstander. Something that interests me.

Are you looking to clone the higher end version?

Never saw them either. Just heard of them recently and copied from pix.

I started out to copy the Exquisite Reference but now I'm closer to the Midi or Ceramique.
