Dayton Audio RS621CBK Speaker Kit Pair Curved 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.

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 RS621CBK Speaker Kit Pair Curved Gloss Black
Dayton Audio RS621CBK Speaker Kit Pair Curved Gloss Black is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little speakers.The kit is first rate and qualty components are used throughout.Beginers should have no problem assembling them.The fit and finish of the cabinets are as close to perfect as possible!Sound.......After breaking them in and listening to them for a couple of weeks......I am using them for an apartment stereo sys. Yes, they are indeed very neutral and clear sounding. I am using minimal EQ just to compensate for room acoustics, basically just at the very top end.If you like "wiz bang" speakers that have an overbearing heavy bass and anoying augmented highs, look elsewhere.However, if a clear, flat, natural, non fatiguing sound is your thing, these are for you.Two things to be aware of.Fist...... They are an acoustical suspension sys which make them a bit less efficient than a comparable ported sys.So keep that in mind.I'm using a 50w RMS PC amp and that seems to be about adequate for a for a qualityy sys using these speaker. Although, I did connect them to my 15w chip amp and it sounded fine as long as the volume was not too high.However, keep in mind that acoustical suspension sys gives a tighter bass which is a good trade off as far as I'm concerened.Second........ even though they have a great, tight bass response they still contain just a realtively small woofer and can benifit from a good sub.I'm using just a Dayton "sub 80" with Tang Band driver and have the crossover set low at about 55-60 hz..... just to give the sys a bit of "bottom" it is lacking. After all, as good as it is, a 6 inch woffer can still only do so much. Carefully adjusting the sub completes the great sound these speakers are capable of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great valuegreat imaging, no loss of detail here(well maybe a little) there's more detail than im used to. they produce wonderul flutes and saxaphones. guitars maintain all of the crunch and clarity that they were recorded with. vocals can seem a little hollow and tinny at some times, this may improve with further break in time. great product, bought these for a project i have been procrastinating on for several months now, and these sure did turn out great (ie: i suck at cabinet building). parts express shipped it fast and everything was in the package minus one zip-tie, good thing i have extras.

Is there a center channel speaker available to match the RS621's

Looking at these as mains and rear (surrounds) looking at a recommended center to go with them. Any one used them in a 5.1 scenario?
Asked by: gringgold
The closest kit we have that would work well as a matching center speaker would be the RS722CBK.

Can the speakers be modified for bi-amping?

Since there are individual crossovers for the tweeters and woofers both fed by "Y" connecters at the speaker posts, can two additional speaker posts be installed to feed each driver by a seperate amp?
Asked by: JoeD
Hello Joe! How is the weather in NY state, or per your user name, are you only in a NY state of mind?! Based upon appearances, the kit seems designed with independent mid and tweeter network boards. If this is indeed the case, you should only need to order 2) pairs of binding post. They can be of any style, or you can order the type similar to what ships in the kit. 091-1245 is a good choice. You would then run a cable from the tweeter network to a one set of binding posts. You would do the same for the midbass. If you wished to connect the speaker in the conventional manner, using a single amp, you'd simply connect a 'jumper' between the mid/tweet binding posts. If you wished to bi-amp the speakers, one amplifier would connect directly to the mid, one amp directly to the tweeter. My description may sound confusing to some, but it is quite simple. Allow me to ask; is there a particular reason you wish to bi-amp these speakers? Anyhow, good luck and enjoy!
