Default Can I build sometime similar to Voxativ 9.87?

Hi,

I found this system Voxativ 9.87 costing about US$40,000. You guys think a speaker system can be built to sound similar to this and I DON'T mean a clone. The website is Voxativ 9.87 SYSTEM.
One image and tech spec are attached.

Initial Thoughts

Full range driver already available: Tang Bang w8-1808 or 1772 or equivalent or similar
Ripole construction: Readily available.

It can be built based on combo passive xover and solid-state driven ripole OR active(DSP) xover. My initial thoughts it will sound quite good and outlay costs low or quite manageable. If not please explain. Thanks for your input.

Voxative drivers are very pricey… my take on te W9-1808 & the 1772 is that they are overpriced for the sonics. My preference of the 2 is the 1808.

I hav eyet to see a Voxativ let along hear it, but you will probably need something better than the TB.

The Look of 9.87 is achievable ask a carpenter or craftsman to make one, less $5000/pair? A lot of leftovers for drivers. The main thrust of this project is to build a high-quality sounding system with adequate aesthetics, look is NOT a priority.
Better quality Full Range what brand/model do you suggest/recommend?

I have directly compared the TBs to the Marl Audio Alpair 10s which i prefer by a sizable margin. EnABLed of course.

The Mark Audio website is very out-of-date. The current Alpair 10s are the A10.3 (metal) and the A10p (paper).

Madisound has the T/S data, Drive drawings at frugal-phile.com.

Hi,

sure it can be done. W-1808 is a good start for the money in my opinion. Of course, there are alternatives to the Voxativ drivers, have a look at Seas Exotic, EMS, Supravox, Fertinacoustics, search for remaining Feastrex or chase perfect Coral Beta 8... and many more.
What is "better" in the end will of course depend on compromises chosen and will be a subjective matter - objectively such system, judged on measurements, will be easily beaten (you´ll find some Voxativ third party measurements in the net as well, not the makers fantasy data). You´ll also find a lot of info on a ripol woofer, that should be easy and has been done.
However, keep us informed of your thoughts and choices!

All the best


Mattes

Another approach would be to build a vented bipole(down firing) with 2*Alpair 10.3 back to back(currently $85 each at Madisound), will give you a total of 94dB @ 4 ohm.
