  • Black Walnut Planar Ribbon Line Arrays & Center Channel w/DSP & Amplifer

    For sale are my first set of home theater front stage speakers. After much research, and consideration of how my living room is arranged, I decided on a pair of tall thin line arrays for the left and right cabinets with a MTM style center channel cabinet designed to set on top of my single subwoofer. The line arrays are based on the SLS LS6593 cabinet design with a few tips taken from Rick Craig. The cabinets are made from old growth black walnut that was milled in 1948 by American Drew in Wilkesboro, NC. The cabinets were assembled with no externally visible fasteners using precision hardwood biscuits and polyurethane glue. They were finished with 18 layers of hand rubbed teak oil varnish. They are sealed cabinets, lined with bituminous tar paper bonded to the internal surfaces and stuffed with fiberglass fill. The cabinets are solid and do an excellent job of damping internal resonances. Each array cabinet contains (4) EMT AS-6W 6.5" midwoofers (80Hz-2.4kHz) and (5) Dayton Pt2c Planar ribbon tweeters (2.4kHz-20kHz). The center channel cabinet contains (2) Peerless 830341 5" midwoofers (100Hz-2.5kHz) and (1) Peerless 811830 soft dome tweeter (2.5kHz-20kHz). The cabinets are intended to be actively biamped therefore no internal crossovers exists. The electronic crossovers is (1) Behringer DCX2496 3x6 channel DSP processors. I modified the Rane MA6S amplifier by upgrading the first input stage opamp, reducing the noise floor by 15dB. I used Smaart audio measurement software to time align the drivers and use parametric EQ resulting in a virtually flat response from 80Hz-20kHz. No shipping on these, but I'm willing to drive a few hundred miles from 28625 to meet you halfway. Asking price is $1925.
