Congrats- and enjoy!

Put your new speakers in a nicely carpetted room with soft thick furnishings and side drapes, and nothing in between the speakers- no tv, cabinets- a pure 2 channel stereo setup.

Then hear them come alive- WOW!

Great work!

What I have learnt from the past a few weeks was that a tiny change of the value of the inductors and resistors can have a significant impact on the sound.

I could not believe how from Speaker Workshop it shows only 0.1 - 0.2dB difference in the region from 1k to 8k the ears can tell very clearly. It is probably not obvious with rock music but with classical music or very fine female vocals / voices a 0.02 ohm difference in a resistor could make the instrument or voice dull or sensational.

You can try buying a few of 0.22, 0.33, 0.39 resistors and add / substract from your resistors and see if they improve the sound.

Regards,
Bill

Hello Tald,

I'm thinking of making the same project that you did.
ProAc 2.5 is a great speaker considering the opinions of the forum at list..!

I was wondering the project that you did use the units of the original ProAc 2.5 site??


Thanks a lot !
