Having owned a pair of X'x, I can tell you that they were not very sturdy. Seemed to resonate quite a bit. I would not duplicate them, but design something more rigid. The outer panels were at a slight angle to the center on the 3 panel model. Regards

To the best of my knowledge, there are no drawings available for any of the frames except for the Spectra series. And the only reason they exist is 'cause I drew 'em in Autocad, and saved copies when I left Acoustat. They are on the Acoustat CD available from the Audiocircuit.

Acoustat wasn't real big on documentation, and it's possible that drawings never did exist for the early frames. Or if they did, they were discarded when the models went out-of-production. When I joined Acoustat (at the point of acquisition by the David Hafler Co) I tried to create good documentation for the new models that we built. The surviving documentation for the earlier models is mostly limited to the owner's manuals.

Hello, all

I am planning a system using a Cogent Research SPI that requires 4 identical loudspeakers arrayed in front of the listener at 30 degrees separation. I have 2 Acoustat Model 4 donor speakers, and because of ceiling height reasons, can't construct 4 1+1s from them. So my questions to the group are these: should I just build a set of 4 Model 1 full-range clones, or go for a double wide Model 2 lay out? Also, the only interfaces I have are a set of 4 from a pair Model 6s, a pair from the 4s (non-Medallion) and a pair from some 1+1s (blue Medallion) -- which interfaces do you recommend? I will be using stereo subs below 80-100 Hz or so and have 7 channels of 100W amplification.

My primary goal is precise imaging. My room is 17' x 22' with (unfortunately) 94" ceilings and the speakers will be arrayed in such a way that they face one of the longer walls.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.

BTW, I listen mostly to 50s-60s jazz, some classical symphony and chamber group.

Default Another mod

monday november 28th my friend Jocelyn is at my home to replace the capacitors in my Acoustat's, 4 Audience Auricaps 5000v will be replacing my older ASC's, after about 50 hours of playing time i am very satisfied with the result, smoother & more detailed highs also more body in the bass.
