  • Too dark to see well. Not much harsh fatiguing sound. Maybe, it is the .22 cap. Hard to judge with bad youtube source. I will take the c-note upstairs once the paint smell has gone away. The treble and detail of the mini 9 is better. Ditto for the bass. But those speakers have scanspeak revelators.

    • I got this kit in Friday. Finished (except waiting for one drive as it was damaged when I got it) it sat. Great little speakers. Home school project with my son. The first of many. I am making aluminum tops and bases to finish off the white carbon fiber wrap. Looks like mni Revel or totem's. Sent from my SM-T320 using Tapatalk

          All finished, not the prettiest but they look great from the couch.

            • ^^ Wow, it looks fantastic. Is that real veneer or very good wrap?

              • Thanks for the kind words! It's all paint that I finished with several coats of polyurethane. I saw a YouTube video a while back where this older gentleman details how to do this type of finish. I practiced on some scraps before trying it. I did use kilz as a base after 50/50 wood gluing the edges. Maybe not necessary but it looks good enough.

                Here is the video of anyone is interested https://youtu.be/9_RkQhMEw4g

                • Are the roundovers on the c-note baffle too sharp to wrap veneer over? I bought some of the walnut paper backed from PE.

                    Hey Kered,

                    Yes they are too sharp to wrap around with veneer. A trick I will be trying, that another member shared with me in one of my build threads, was to use a router to route the roundovers out (once build is complete), and then veneer the face with no roundovers (and trim), then install walnut quarter rounds where the roundovers were. This will ensure you get the same type of wood on the face. I thought this was a neat idea to conserve the roundover look, as opposed to veneering the whole speaker in wood with the exception of the face, and then either painting the face or wrapping it in vinyl due to roundovers.

                    • Also is this the correct cap?

                          • Hi All,

                            I just finished building 2 pairs of these babies, I'm fairly new to building speakers but this kit was very easy to build and the instructions provided are easy to follow, I did everything as suggested plus adding the .22uf cap in parallel to the woofer's inductor.

                            They are not very loud speakers, which is understandable for their size, but their sound is great as well as the value for the money.

                            I just need to decide how I want to finish the enclosures.

                            Here are the pics of the build...
