Dayton Audio RS621BK Speaker Kit Pair Gloss Black

Based on the Parts Express DIY Project Showcase "The Encore" project, these versatile, small in stature speakers are BIG on sound. They are terrific when used in a home theater surround system, or even as main speakers placed in smaller listening rooms. In any sound application, you can be assured that the Dayton Reference Series RS150-8 6" woofer will provide impressive, high-impact bass. The Dayton Reference Series RS28A-4 1-1/8" aluminum dome tweeter is exquisitely matched to the woofer, thanks to the well thought-out dedicated crossover network. The net result is a compact, high-resolution package that will provide faithful, detailed sound reproduction. We've included everything you'll need to complete your project, except some basic tools and the time for assembly. Regardless of whether you are interested in learning speaker building techniques or are already a seasoned pro, the Dayton Audio RS621 2-way system is the perfect kit to build. It's affordable, and the results are simply outstanding! Available in your choice of cabinet finishes (gloss black, cherry, maple), and in straight- or arc-sided versions. Sold in pairs.

Specifications: • Impedance: 8 ohms  • Frequency response: 60 - 20,000 Hz • SPL: 88 dB 2.83V/1m • Power Handling: 65 watts RMS • Cabinet dimensions: 12" H x 7.5" W x 10" D.

Now shipping with pre-assembled crossovers. No more soldering!

Dayton Audio® loudspeaker kits are designed to offer the speaker-building hobbyist truly high-end sound quality and aesthetic appeal. Because they are based on the Dayton Audio finished loudspeaker cabinets, the appearance of these systems is world-class. Your choice of three beautiful exterior surfaces (gloss black, cherry, and maple) and two styles (straight- or arc-sided) is sure to blend with any decor.

All engineering from cabinet to crossover was done in the U.S.A., ensuring Dayton Audio speakers will faithfully reproduce the music that you know, with tonal qualities that you prefer. Strong bass and a very smooth top end without unnatural midrange glare are traits common to all Dayton Audio designs. The superb performance of these speakers is guaranteed; the choice of which one is for you should be based on cabinet size, output requirements, driver preference, and personal cosmetic appeal. Although Dayton Audio kits can be assembled by a beginner in one or two hours, the speaker systems' acoustical performance reveals their superb technical pedigree.

Since these speakers are in kit form, you will realize substantial savings by building them yourself. All woodworking has been done; assembly consists of securing drivers and ports, attaching damping materials, and wiring the crossovers and drivers. The process does not require expensive tools or measurement equipment—a general knowledge of electronics is helpful but not required. Crossover networks are completely pre-assembled and ready to connect to the drivers and input terminals using the supplied wires and push-on terminals. No soldering required!

Dayton Audio offers a completely new level of quality previously unavailable in commercially available loudspeaker kits. All of the critical aspects of high-end loudspeaker design and manufacturing have finally been combined into the ultimate DIY kit-building experience. You can own a finished speaker system rivaling those found at exotic high-end salons, and best of all you'll be able to say "I built it myself!"

Dayton Audio RS621BK Speaker Kit Pair Gloss Black
Dayton Audio RS621BK Speaker Kit Pair Gloss Black is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speakers!I bought two sets of these speakers back in January for my home theater. This was my first speaker build so I was a little hesitant at first not knowing what I was getting into, but after I watched the video on building them it was a breeze. The first speaker took about an hour (I was very cautious), after that it was about 20-30 each. I've got a 7.1 system and I use these speakers for my surrounds, they sound really great. I'm no audiophile but I know what good music and movies sound like. The cabinet is solid and mine were spotless when they arrived.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value, Easy AssemblyWith the crossovers pre-built, this package only took a few hours to assemble. The speakers sound better and better as they break in. Don't be alarmed if they're a little meek sounding at first, they fill out.They're not quite as deep or full as I had thought they would be, and they suck down the wattage like there's no tomorrow. That's the sacrifice with sealed speakers. They have decent enough imaging. (I can usually trick guests into thinking the center channel is on :)The 12" 500W Dayton MKIII Titanic Sub Kit is a good match and fills in any bass complaints I would have had about these speakers running solo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for beginners!I recently started upgrading my home theater system, and needed better speakers to match up with my Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver. (My old speakers were cheap 5.1 PC Speakers). I bought one of these kits to get into the speaker building world as I figured it would be a fairly simple introduction. The first kit did not have pre-assembled crossovers and that resulted in me having an issue with a solder connection that was driving me crazy. Still, I got it figured out and the results were amazing. The sounds I'm now hearing from my movies and music are shocking as I never heard them before. GREAT speakers for a GREAT price.After buying the front two, I went and bought another kit for the rears. This time, the kit came with preassembled crossovers and that made a HUGE difference in ease. The only issues that still remained were that the cabinets themselves are a bit small so it's tough to maneuver in there. Also, the tweeter/woofer connection wires are barely long enough to reach, so it's difficult to attach them to the crossovers. I just decided to solder my own wire to the crossover connections and then solder them to the drivers. That made it nice and easy.If you're looking for new speakers and are just getting into the hobby, this is the purchase for you
