Hi gang, first off the bat I've got to be upfront and say that I do not like how these sound. Bought them from another member here as per the ad below and they sounded tinny and shrill. I thought maybe it was the cabinets and some run in time was required. Risks of buying speakers unheard I guess, but was expecting more given good reviews online.

 

I then got some plans from David Dicks, owner of AN and went with the build for the 2.8 Mk II cabinets which was the biggest I thought I would get away with for our living room. It has opened up after some run in time and the midrange has come in, but still very little bass to speak of despite the larger cabinet volumes. Really wanted to like these and made for a fun lockdown project, but it's time for me to give this one up and hopefully someone else can do something with them or get them sounding as they should.

 

Made of 18mm MDF so cabinets are quite hefty. Cabinet is a DIY job so don't expect perfection, but they're not too bad and would look decent once finished. Cabinet dimensions 980mm high, 350mm deep, 305mm wide. Grilles are attached magnetically.

 

Pick up only, but if there's interest in just the drivers I could consider splitting and shipping just drivers.

 

Keen to move these along, and think I've priced it reasonably considering cost of drivers alone is USD295, plus materials and lots of time for the cabinets.

Hey mate,

I have the larger 12 inch ferrite supers.  I found I got best results using a SET amp, and pushing them close against the rear wall. Toe angle is pretty important too  avoid that bright sound. Pushed hard they do sound harsh but partnered well at reasonable volumes  they so work.  I also had the big round port 8’ inch, I got real tuneful bass from 2 watts. 
 

Good luck with the sale, for that money it’s a steal. In the right system they’ll sing.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Sunbury State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal plus fees, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Moved house and no longer have a dedicated room. Further information: Regretfully selling my HT setup as I have moved into a new house with no dedicated room. This post is for 2 x Emotiva Gen 1 XPA-1 power monoblock amplifiers. Both are in excellent condition and come with their original boxes.
       
      XPA-1 Differential Reference Mono-block Power Amplifier 500 watts RMS x 1 into 8 ohms, 1,000 watts RMS x 1 into 4 ohms. It's all about control, and the XPA-1 is a control freak. 500 watts RMS into 8 ohms, 1,000 watts RMS into 4 ohms. All the performance you'd expect to see from an audiophile reference level amplifier. But what about the sound? Big...expansive...powerful...and yet very refined...and defined. This is what you get when you have control.
       
      Open to reasonable offers.
       
       
      Other items for sale:
      - Paradigm Studio 100 V5 floorstands in Black Ash.
      - Paradigm Studio ADP-590 V5 3-way surround speakers.

      SB Acoustic ARA Bookshelf Speakers in excellent condition – I bought this stand mount speakers from SNA’er last October 2020.  The pair is in white high gloss with genuine SB Acoustic crossovers and the famous Satori Ring Radiator Tweeter which been used by high end speakers manufacturers such as the Von Schweikert and Hulgich Audio to name a few. The mid woofer also uses is SB Acoustic ARA papyrus reed cone which is also found in the Wilson Audio Sasha.
       
      These speakers are only available in kit form in Australia and sell for $xxxx from Wagner Online, if these are sold ready made expect to pay twice or thrice the price. The ARA bookshelf speakers are also very similar to the Hulgich Audio NINA (same drivers but different cabinet) which is more than triple the price that I’am asking.
       
       SB Acoustic drivers were designed in Denmark by ex Scan-Speak engineers.
       
      DRIVERS used:
      SATORI TW29R (29mm soft ring dome) 6.5inch SATORI MW16P-4 mid woofer.
       
      Frequency Response: 45-25000Hz /-3dB
      Sensitivity: 87dB
      Impedance: 4ohm
      Recommended amplifier: 50 to 150 watt
       2 Way Bass Reflex Port tuned to 36.5Hz
       Facets on top of the paired cabinets for reduced high frequency diffraction
      Inclined baffle for correct time alignment of drivers
      Wedge shaped inner rear walls behind mid woofer for reduced direct reflection.
      Internal bracing to reduce and distribute vibrations, hence lower sound colouration.
       Approx. 391mm high x 340mm deep 190mm wide ( These are quite large for stand mount speakers)
       
      Note: There is a small hole in one of the tweeter cloth covers but will provide spare cloth to fix this.
