    Re: Cabrini Redux

    Anyone know where these are right now?
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

        They're hiding in my bushes, johnny, I can see they're creepy little tweeters staring into my window...

          Really?

              So how do these compare to the original cabrini? I was looking to throw something together as surrounds, and it looks like this might fit the bill.

                It is a definite upgrade.

                  While the cabrinis were my first build, thank you Johnny! I have the cabrinis and center for my downstairs system right now and I am pleased. Some of it is the fact that I built speakers that make sound but as a competitive I thought that the cabrinis were running right with the BA bookshelves that I paid much much for a couple years ago. This has me very intrigued with this but I am moving on however I would not hesitate to build these for someone. Note I have heard these so this might not be of any help. But if you are a budget builder I would go for it.....

                      Hard to think of these as Cabrinis v2 without piezos handling the upper frequencies

                        Johnny- Back to using these as surrounds... Could I make them taller, while keeping the same baffle width and depth? It would get them closer to ear level, without having to make stands, and I figure may help the bottom end a little.

                          For sure! I actually considered using one of the other piezos PE is selling under the GRS brand, but decided to use one of the dome tweeters instead.

                            Absolutely - just keep driver geometry consistent from the top of the cabinet and it will change hardly anything.

                              You should try the "Frankenpiezo" - a GRS 1016 back attached to a GW 1016 front. The result seems to have a pretty smooth response for a piezo. Good down to 3K or so. I was going to use them in my "Blastereens" design, but got sidelined with Chick-V just before my Christmas vacation...

                                I believe I saw your work along those lines, and I was intrigued - alas, fresh out of all but the 10" subwoofers in the GRS line. Those are going to be very fun, I think.
