My room is 3m by 6m. The Elsinores are set up along the long wall and about 1m from the back wall. I have to open the door of the room to let the lowest notes develop. The speakers can be set much wider apart than most. They do boom in the bass if I get them too close to the corners. My room is very "dead" with a lot of sound treatment and bass traps in the corners. The speakers virtually disappear when playing with a large deep soundstage. I have an Audio Note 300b amp and it is just barely enough power to run them. But with the limited power, especially in the bass region, you should be fine. In fact when I use mine with the 300b amp I run a sub.

The Elsinore a very BIG speakers, in a small room you may consider building the Nomex164 from Troels Gravesen, they use also the 830875 and the 810921 but are NOT the same speakers

Default Cross over componants

Can someone please give me some advice as to where they sourced the more critical components of the crossovers within Australia? particularly high quality inductors?

Or does anyone have a set of finished crossovers they are willing to sell? (my skills lay more on the cabinet making side, the electronics is going to challenge me a lot more.)

Hi Guys

I know it has taken some time, in fact too long, but the work on the elusive Hamlets has started and in January the project will being coming together. The first stage of computer modelling is on the way. This last year has been the busiest business wise, in fact it has revolved around my work with Oppo players - which threatened to take over my life. But January is always a little slow and I won't mind. So it is a promise for January.

Cheers, Joe R.

Hi, you should find everything you need on SpeakerBug's site SpeakerBug, capacitors, inductors, resistors, crossover parts, speaker supplies I have several new parts for the crossovers that I'm willing to sell at half price of the retail cost. Most parts are Erse Audio brand. pm me if you are interested for the list of parts

I get the Jantzen Superior Z Caps from SpeakerBug, capacitors, inductors, resistors, crossover parts, speaker supplies and he accepts PayPal and if you choose the Yellow Express option, you get it the following day. The Jantzen coils are good too.

Remember when I placed an order and he got payment and it said for him to send to Bjoern Rasmussen. So in the email he sent, he assured me it would be sent that afternoon and arrive the following day, which was Friday. Then in the end he asked "Are you related to Joe Rasmussen?"



Cheers, Joe

Default Hamlets

Hi Joe

While your working on the hamlets, is there any chance that you could reduce the overall height and maybe add it to the length perhaps?
