I have two minima's project with different crossover parts value.



An externally hosted image should be here but it was not working when we last tested it.

Which one is the original??
Maybe it is after upgrade?? :rolleyes:
Why there is no info about them? :mad:
When they were made? Is this the real loudspeaker of sonus faber ??:rolleyes:
Best regards!
These are facsimile,not original Sonus Faber!!!!
woofer is different
tweeter is different
crossover is different
cabinet is perfect ( too much perfect, maybe the man has modified/ "upgradated" a pair of original Minima SF, in his attempt)
The minima project is about 20 years old.
Sonus Faber Minima

e-can, (sorry for my english)
I don't understand your position. Have you listened the SF Minima or not?
In the "hall of fame" of hystorical minimonitors Minima is a true little jewel. Some people prefer the LS3/5A, others the ENSAMBLE PA1 , others the Spica T-50 or T60. Do you know these speakers?
In a previous post I specified you all the story.
Seas 11 FGX = CA 11 RCY= H149 ( Madisound 43 USD each)
For the tw, if you have not the D28-D28/2, the MDT 30/32 is acceptable
in the simulator, The SEAS TFDC 27 seems perfect with the original filter. But this is a simulation, caution is required . ;)
Today Minima is out of production.
In Italy one pair of Minima used is about 450 euro.
I haven't others advises to you.

P.S. :In a Italian Audio Review interview with SF's Patron little time ago , he declared his reference speaker was Minima again ( not Guarnieri,Cremona,Amati,etc) !!!!!
I've just brought the speakers (excells and morels). I was wondering why there is no info about them. I've not listened any of mentioned monitor....Now I see why there is no info about SF minima...out of production...but I was wondering if there is any better project at the same $...I could buy the SS revelators,but didn't.....troels gravsen wrote that minimas almost beats his LS3/ I decided to build from your point of view it's a good choice to build minima's ?
I don't want any alu speakers...I prefer 'soft' sound..don't want to listen metalic sound....excell is much better especially paper one's...

the excel 4" is a bit different from 4" standard. No ideal situation.
But , you have the raw drivers... so try a prototipe and listen it!
I can't talking about things I haven't listened ;)
My opinion is irrilevant.
If you can try all the 3 x-overs and judge yourself........
good luck !
