  1. I don't actually...is it a s/ware program to look at frequency responses? As far as I'm aware, I've followed the Liionidas OB specs to the letter in terms of speaker placement in each baffle? I used this design as I was hoping all this optimisation work would have been done by people who know what they're doing 😁 Here is the assembly drawing Here is the XO design Cheers all Matt
  2. Great to see that this post has started a life of it;s own during my hiatus but I'm pleased to let you all know that we finished construction a few weeks back & have had out 1st listen. Not the last word in micro-detail....although the higher frequencies are actually pretty good straight out of the box....however the bass was a little bloated & slow. This could be as the woofer take more time to break in (which I suspect is the case), but I'm also not convinced our XO is 100% correct. Only one of my team have any XO experience & he was absent on the day we p
  3. These were my 1st proper speakers I owned about 25 years ago...teamed up with their TLX12's made an excellent HT set up but they also rocked with 2CH stereo. for $500 they're a steal. GLWTS
  4. I’m assuming this is their older model preamp compared to their current RP series, have you compared them at all?
  5. SELLING AS A BULK LOT Further information: I’ve owned this DAC since new, bought directly from Magenta Audio (official distributors of PS Audio in Australia). It’s approx. 9-10 years old & in excellent working condition with only minor scuffs, certainly nothing of note on the front. I have been using this DAC connected to my Bel Canto Preamp via XLR & to my HT amp via RCA which run some outside speakers…..it does send signals to both XLR & RCA simultaneously which meant I could have the same music in/outside via the DAC. From PS Audio "The NuWave

  7. Hi Guys, & I bought them ?.....one of my best, if not the best purchase I've made on sna. They have made a huge difference to my system in terms of bass, mid-range & just so musical, never fatiguing.... They drive my Dynaudio Focus 380's with ease! Keep looking & if you've not set up Hi-Fi Shark already, I suggest you create an account & search for them FS all over the world. I'm now on the hunt for their RP7 or 9 Preamp. Good luck Matt
  8. Hi Guys, Progress is slow but we had another sesh last night in which we sanded the woofer baffles to remove most of the bumps & lumps post gluing.....they're not a perfect circle but we're happy with the results so far. We then routed the front baffle to give it a champhed edge.....if that makes any sense? We then started the 1st if the XO's Here are some pictures 1st & 2nd stage baffle shaping & sanding Tony the master router Quick peak to ensure can mount W15's from the rear (may st
  9. Hi all, Thanks for all your posts, so much to learn. Here are some pictures from today’s efforts. Will build the cabinets up this week & work out the XO design. Cheers Matt
  10. Would something like this work ok or am I over complicating things? https://www.ebay.com.au/i/123806927185?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=705-159824-816807-4&mkcid=2&itemid=123806927185&targetid=4584826053541484&device=c&mktype=&googleloc=&poi=&campaignid=398426096&mkgroupid=1299622994238756&rlsatarget=pla-4584826053541484&abcId=9300413&merchantid=136820&msclkid=ec934b60eda21029407c149559b8189e Thanks for the heads up in regards to the Silver 8 & switching polarity
  11. Thanks for clarifying, it’s all new to me but I’m enjoying the learning. BTW - The XO components arrived today & we will be cutting out the holes in the baffles, glueing the woofer baffles & possibly building the XO’s this weekend....as always, more to follow. BTW - any recommendations for a board to house the XO or just use mdf & cable ties to hold them together?
  12. Hi Hank, yes, pretty much following this design although I’ve bought the Silver 8 not Fast 8 or Crystal 10. I’ve ordered the XO components but not received them as yet so will build XO later this week or weekend. I’ll keep you all posted Cheers Matt
