A single Jordan JX92S fullrange driver is used per loudspeaker. The Jordan is much better than Fostex drivers at producing bass and it does not need an expensive tube amplifier.

Hi-Vi-Research-Swans-Tempus-Speakers.JPGHi-Vi Research Swans Tempus Speakers6120 viewsHi-Vi Research Swans Tempus Bookshelf Speakers built by Daniel Bolduc. Bass frequencies are deep and clean while the highs are well balanced. But, due to either the limitation of the TN28 to 20 kHz or the crossover network, high frequencies are not as well defined and crisp as on the Hi-Vi 3-Way Tower Loudspeakers I built few months ago.

Here is an overview of Hi-Vi Research F6 / TN28 Swans Tempus Bookshelf Speakers with the enclosure plan. Also see my build log for more photos and construction details.

DIY-Three-Way-Tower-HiVi-Speakers.JPGDIY Three Way Tower HiVi Speakers6098 viewsDavid has completed a build of Adam's DIY 3-Way HiVi Tower Speaker Project. Each three-way tower loudspeakers uses one HiVi F8 woofer, two HiVi F5 mid-woofers and a HiVi RT1C-A Planar Isodynamic Tweeter. The speaker is the same as the original build with the exception that a HiVi Research RT1C-A tweeter is used in place of the HiVi SD1.1A tweeter.

The enclosure is tuned through bass port at the end of the pipe stand. Binding posts are on the back. The frequency range is about 80 to 20,000Hz . There is a nice sound stage and pretty good low end response considering the small size of the driver and enclosure. I would love to hear your comments about this HiVi B3N Full Range Speaker project.

BrazCherry.jpgOrion DIY speakers6078 viewsThese dipole speakers are available as a DIY project, a kit, or completed speakers. You can purchase the plans from Siegfried Linkwitz (www.linkwitzlab.com).
The speakers use two 10" Peerless subwoofers, an 8" SEAS midrange driver and two SEAS Excel tweeters per cabinet. The active crossover circuit board is also available from Linqwitz Lab. The documentation includes all that is needed to build these yourself. For those who want some of the assembly completed, the crossover is available fully assembled and tested. A kit, unique parts and brackets for completing the construction, and completed speakers are also available. The speakers are driven with 8 channels of amplification (60 watts per channel). One can parallel the woofers to get by on 6 channels. There is much information on the web about the quality of these speakers. Anyone seeking very high quality speakers at a DIY price for music reproduction or for home theater will not be disappointed.

MicPreCct.JPGInside the diy microphone preamp6052 viewsThe cct. brd. for the ESP low noise two transistor mic preamp attaches to the lid of the this solid die-cast aluminum case. Batteries also are mounted on the cct. brd. This preamp is free from hiss and all noise and is the perfect partner for high quality low output mics. A more compact version could be constructed using electrolytic caps and AAA batteries (12V). But the quality would suffer a little with the inferior caps.

K_16LS_Tube_Amp_Kit_with_PL_Preamp_Kit.jpgK-16LS Tube Amp Kit with PL Tube Preamp6049 viewsAfter months of looking I finally decided on the S-5 Electronics K-16LS stereo tube amplifier kit together with its sister PL tube preamplifier kit. The Stereo Integrated Tube Amplifier produces up to 16W and utilizes 5670 triode and 6005 pentode tubes. The PL tube preamp kit uses a 5670 triode tube.

I ditched the supplied wood board for a larger board to accommodate the preamp. Using my IPod and a set of Celestion floorstanders (90dB) I sat back to listen. WOW - seriously loud. Bass is fantastic, treble is sharp. Mid range seems to be missing a bit but after trying different tracks I am putting this down to poor quality source MP3 via the IPod. There is a reasonable amount of hum when you take the volume up but nothing annoying.

Next step is to attempt the mods for the K-12 kits.

I have been listening to the preamp for two hours now and found it adds nothing to the sound (as a preamp should) and extends control with volume and balance adjustment. The yellow caps are 0.47 uF polypropylene metal film. Full details are available for this project at: DIY Op Amp based Preamplifier Project.

I built two pairs of the Tempus and the cost was about $725/pair. I think that is a very fair price for speakers of that quality.

See Hi-Vi Research F6 / TN28 Swans Tempus Bookshelf Speakers for the speaker box enclosure plan. Also my build log has more information.

The box volume is 5.2L and a camphor burl veneer was used for the finish. I use these with no baffle step correction whatsoever and are mated with an 8" subwoofer from av123.

I am thinking of adding the Aurum Cantis ribbon tweeter to these
