  • RS Duet speakers by Paul Kittinger

    Hello all,

    Does anyone have access to the two write-ups on the RS Duet? I have seen previous references to a design write-up by Paul K and a crossover write-up by Mark K. There were links to an audioheuristics website,but that site appears to be not active.

    At any rate, just came across these speakers and would like to read the documents.

    Thanks, Steve

                Paul,

                I love the look of your RS Duets. I do have once question though: Since you have now had the speaker for 6+ years, I was curious if the sold wood baffle caused any compromise of the cabinet as a result of "wood movement". I really want to try a solid hardwood baffle on my next bookshelf speaker build and was curious if this later became an issue for you.

                Thanks,
                D

                  Don't mean to hijack the thread... I have a pair of Statement Monitors which I built ~8 yrs ago, with Curly Maple baffles. As of this morning there are is no movement or splitting of the baffles. This after being built in Western Washington State and moving to the Sonora Valley 5 yrs. ago. I also have a pair of full-range speakers, design by Wolf, with solid Walnut baffles. Same results as far as movement and splitting. In both cases, the wood has inter-locking fibers and was well dried before use. Based on my experiences, I would not hesitate to build another pair of speakers with solid baffles. Standard disclaimer, YMMV.

                    Thanks for the compliment. I sold the RS duets (and 4 other pairs of speakers) just a few weeks ago and the hardwood baffles were still pristine. I've built other speakers similarly without any problems.

                      Thanks Ed - that settles my questions also. Recently got a bunch of exotic wood I want to use for solid baffles.

                          Sapele, Bubinga, Walnut. I'm stoked.

                              As the new caretakers of the RS Duets, I will agree I love their look, and the baffles are still flawless.
