  • FS--5 Pairs of speakers.

    I have too many speakers sitting unused and I'm hoping they can find new homes where they will be enjoyed (and I can then build some more!). So here's what I have to offer. The attached photos are in the same order as the following descriptions and the prices are per pair. The Marcatos have been sold. I reduced the asking price for the RS duets. The Cavatinas and RS duets have been sold. Both the Balmoras and Cabalettas have not been sold. No more speakers left. Thanks to everyone.

    Marcato: An MTM using a pair of Usher 8945P midwoofers and a BG Neo3 PDR tweeter. The cabinet design is an ML-TL (mass-loaded transmission line) with an f3 of 32 Hz. Crossover design by Dan Neubecker. Cabinet dimensions are 10"W x 45-3/4"H x 12-1/2"D. Asking $750. SOLD

    Cavatina: A 3-way with an Usher 8945A midwoofer, Scan Speak Discovery 10F/8424 midrange, and Fountek Neo CD 1.0 tweeter. The enclosure design for the Usher is a hybrid TL, both tapered and mass-loaded with an f3 of 32 Hz. The midrange has a small, sealed enclosure. Crossover design by Dennis Murphy. Cabinet dimensions are 9"W x 41"H x 11"D. First-place winner in Over-$200 category at 2011 MWAF. Asking $650. SOLD

    RS Duets: A 2-way ML-TL for a Dayton Audio RS225-8 woofer and RS-28F tweeter. The f3 is 32 Hz and cabinet dimensions are 10W" x 40-1/4"H x 10-1/2"D. Crossover design by Mark Krawiec. First-place winner in Dayton Audio category at 2012 MWAF. Price reduced to $450.SOLD

    Balmora: A 3-way for an SB Acoustics SB17NRX35-8 woofer, Tectonic TEBM46C20N-4B midrange, and SB19ST-C000-4 tweeter. The woofer is loaded by a 5-foot-long ML-TL featuring an f3 of 36 Hz, and the midrange has a small, sealed enclosure. Crossover design by Dan Neubecker. Cabinet dimensions of 9"W x 39-3/4"H x 11"D. Second-place winner in Under-$200 category at 2016 MWAF. Asking $425. SOLD

    Cabaletta: A 3-way for a Dayton Audio RS180-4 and Dayton Audio CX120-8 coax. The RS180 is in a 5-foot-long ML-TL with an f3 of 35 Hz, and the coax has a small, sealed enclosure. Crossover design by Chuck Morris. Cabinet dimensions are 9-3/4"W x 40-1/4"H x 11-5/8"D. Second-place winner in Under-$200 category at 2018 MWAF. Asking $400. SOLD

    I do realize that most people viewing this ad are also DIYers and would likely prefer to design and build their own because it's a great hobby that we all share. I will consider all serious and reasonable offers. I really want to sell these but, understandably, don't want to give them away, even figuratively. Offers can be made in a reply post to this ad or in a private message to me (and if the latter, I'd appreciate you providing your email address for further communications). I can provide write-ups with more information about these speakers if you give me your email address. A visit to my home for a listening session would naturally be expected. Cash and carry, no shipping, please, and thanks for looking.

          Paul,

          I'm afraid I have no clue on values for these speakers. Could you pm me with a hint or hoped for prices?

          Regards,

                I have a friend who is an opera buff, doesn't listen to much else as far as I know. He has been pining for better speakers, and over the years I have made several suggestions.

                The problem now is that his wife was recently diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. She is dying, and is in hospice. That makes me very hesitant to broach anything like this with him, but I think he would be an excellent candidate for one of your designs. I will see if I can do anything. He only lives a couple of blocks from me.

                  Excellent prices for this level of sound quality and workmanship. The pictures don't do them justice. I fall into the category of those who prefer to roll their own, but if I didn't, I would be all over these. Good luck with the sale Paul.

                    My son-in-law's mother died just last night at 80. She had been fighting multiple problems the last couple of years. Do what you think is best if and when the timing is considerate and appropriate.

                      Thanks, Dan, for the compliments, and I do clearly understand others wanting to roll their own.

                        Beautiful designs and builds Paul. Unfortunately, my house is filled with speakers in almost every room, with more on the way. Best wishes on some sales.

                          Crazy pricing for such hi-end speakers. Compare those to what you get in a store for those same prices. WOW!

                            If I had space I would make and offer on the Cavatina. The detail on the craftsmanship is amazing.
