  • Anyone hear the Clearwave (JedK) M5W (and like it)?

    Almost a rhetorical question because I'm sure the combination of components (Vifa XT25 tweeter, SB Acoustics SB15NRXC30-8 mid, Dayton RSS270 woofer) and a competent crossover means a great speaker! It looks like the ideal choice for my new HT LR mains based on my desires for a loud 3-way tower with detailed midrange and the COOL looking Vifa XT25 tweeter! I'm just hoping for someone who's actually experienced them to give me some impressions. Colorful, preferably! ;) Link---- http://clearwaveloudspeaker.com/M5W/M5W.html

    I didn't build that particular speaker from Jed, but I did build his ScanSpeak/SB Accoustics RBR design last autumn, and it impressed me beyond board-approved words. I still need to finish it (I have to paint the baffle), but I spent plenty of time with it this past winter just enjoying music.

    I wouldn't blink an eye ordering one of his designs based on my positive experience with that speaker.

      The XT25 is one of my favorites thus far.
      It just sounds very good!

        +1 on the RBR by Jed. What a nice speaker, what a bargain.

          Everything I've heard from Jed is superb. He really is meticulous in getting things right.

          +1 what Wolf said, the XT25 is a very nice tweeter. Maybe not the best off-axis performance, but who listens off axis?

            it does look like a killer kit at a rediculously low price. I've always been interested in it, just no room for more speakers now.

              Thanks to all who responded. Anyone know of any other comparable proven 3-way designs?
