  • Classix II in Walnut and Maple

    Had these finished for a while but had trouble posting. I can see why Paul says these are one of the funnest speakers he's built. They ROCK!!!

        Really nice job, look very professional indeed - make mine look pretty amateur!

        A suggestion if I may: I use mine with the Dayton 1" rubber speaker feet, they sound a little clearer in the bass. I had them on stands but they (the stands) weren't stable enough.

        The Classix II are excellent speakers, especially for the money. I've had mine in my workshop for about a year and love them. The sound is very smooth, but the detail is there too. I run them with a Dayton DTA-120 amp and my iPod and cassette deck - which don't sound good through my 'reference' speakers but sound fine through the Classix.

        Am also going to do the Classix 2.5 when I have the excuse to build them.

        Big thank you to Paul Carmody!

              Yep, I was thinking of doing some stands but haven't settled on design/location yet.

                Nice receiver.

                Walnut veneer but the baffles are solid maple. I used the same technique as my previous build, mdf enclosure, veneer sides and attach solid baffle with hanger bolts.

                I picked up that Marantz 2230 with an old thorens td160 turntable I rebuilt. I just added a Marantz 140 amp as well. I'm going to set that up as a fully vintage setup at some point. I find the Classix II really shine with the Marantz. It's like they were meant to go with 70s gear!

                          Thanks Paul! Another terrific design! These are a really fun set of speakers and as I said above, just magic with the old marantz receiver. Rock'in old school with the Classix!! ;)

                            The Classix's are sharp, excellent work, and I really like that desk!

                            Thoren and Marantz, where are you finding these vintage scores?

                              Kijiji. But you have to check regularly and move fast when there's a good deal.
