Product Description

This high-end 2-way monitor is based on the popular Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" silk dome tweeter and DC160-8 6-1/2" woofer. It was designed to provide a low cost, easy to build 2-way system for the speaker building novice. The end result is a kit that can be built in a couple of hours and has a sound that will rival systems costing two or three times its modest price!

Overall, the system is smooth and detailed, with a wide soundstage that belies their smallish size. The tonal balance is on the warm side of neutral, which is pleasing with most types of music. The bass is also impressive for a system of this size. The cabinets are made of 5/8" MDF finished in an unobtrusive "black ash" vinyl laminate and include grills with black cloth. All driver holes are precision cut with a CNC for a perfect fit. The tweeter is flush mounted to reduce diffraction effects.

Note: This system is offered in kit form and can be assembled in about two hours. The crossover needs to be assembled, so soldering skills are necessary. We've included a tutorial that thoroughly explains the theory and design process making this kit perfect for educational programs. Each kit includes everything needed to build one pair of speakers.

System Specifications: • Impedance: 8 ohms • Frequency response: 43-18,000 Hz • SPL: 85 dB 2.83V/1m • Power handling: 100 watts max.
