  • Jeff Bagby's Continuums + Subwoofer

    Here's my take on Jeff's design, in curly maple. I messed up a little bit with the spacing between the tweeter and the woofer (measurement error), there should have been a little more space in there - but it seems to have worked out okay.

    The sub is a simple sealed ~12" box with the Wavecor SW223BD02 and Dayton 250w DSP amp. The amp is really nice, made it easy to blend the sub in with the monitors.

        Beautiful boxes. I really like the contrast between the blond maple boxes and the black drivers, screws and the shadow line on the baffle. Nice job.

          Thanks! I was considering a seamless baffle design with no screws showing, but I'm really happy with how this turned out and glad I went with a more traditional LS3/5a design. I wasn't sure how I would feel about all the screws but now that it's finished I really like them.

                Nice job.

                I also like the 250 DSP amp, I have 2 PE 8" kits. The concept really works great for 2.1 sound from a simple stereo source.

                  I did the same thing with mine. Although, I messed up the rear and ended up gluing the backs.

                      Beautiful rendition.
                      Are you high-passing the mains?
                      Really nice setup.

                        The Dayton 250DSP plate amp controls the high and low passes.

                          Thanks all! They sound great. I build them for my office, I work from home and usually listen to music 4-5 hours a day so I wanted something that sound great and was easy to listen to. These fit the bill, I can listen to them all day long.

                          I am using the Dayton amp to low and high pass to blend the monitors with the sub. The Continuum's have a bass boost built into the low end which is fine if you don't have a sub but I had to cut it out a bit to keep from having an exaggerated response in the... I think it may have been 80-100hz or so range.

                          Here's some work in progress shots from the build. I'll have to make a few posts to attach them all.
