    • Yes it’s been awhile since my last visit here. My apologies for being an unresponsive member. Life sometimes intrudes on things we are passionate about and sets us on a different course. In my case, a divorce, a cancer diagnosis, and then the great Louisiana Flood of 2016 put quite the damper on things. I’m okay. Healthy. Happy. However my wood shop is still packed away in a rented storage unit. My only audio project since 2016 has been of the car audio variety. I did a big project to build a high SQ system in my 4 runner that I have been modifying for overland adventuring. It still lacks a subwoofer, so that is on the agenda.

      Thank you all for the compliments and kind words here in this thread and via PM regarding this build. I consider myself a perfectionist almost to a fault and I walked away from this satisfied with zero regrets or second guesses.
      Thanks,
      Jeff

        Every time I research the ND90-8 or Sprite speaker, your build features right on top and I just love to go through the build process and the pics. Seriously amazing skills with woodworking and camera. Just love it.

        I know that the bass of the Sprite is pretty good (having built a few myself with slight tweaks in the filter). I have added tweeters to some of the Sprite builds (just a BSC and L-Pad, HPF on the Tweeter at 9 KHz) and it really opens up the sound and adds a lot of air.
        ​​​​​​
        Since you have built both the OS and the Sprite separates, how would you compare these two with regard to bass and overall sound. Also, how much of a difference does adding the Voxel sub make to them.

        Thanks.
        This reply may be a tad late but....

        There is no comparison to be made between the Overnight Sensation and Sprite. The OS will win every time as it is a 2 way design and can perform better than the Sprite in every aspect. Paul Carmody designed both of these and I do believe that they “sound” as if they were cooked in the same kitchen , especially if the voxel is teamed with the sprite. The OS is a much better listening experience though.

        FWIW, I currently have the Voxel teamed with the OS pair in my fishing camp. I have them way underpowered, but it is a good combination.
        Thanks,
        Jeff

        • Good to have you back Jeff! Your projects were a big inspiration for me. Sorry to hear about your tough times but if sounds like you are in a good place now. I hope you're able to unpack your woodshop soon as I know many of us would love to see another of your builds.
