Dayton Audio RS621MK Speaker Kit Pair Maple

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 RS621MK Speaker Kit Pair Maple
Dayton Audio RS621MK Speaker Kit Pair Maple is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Update to my previous reviewFollow up to my original reviewAfter living with the speakers for some time I decided I would try adding a subwoofer. This is a big step for me as the subwoofers I have heard appeared to create more problems than they solved. They seemed fine for casual listeners who threw them in a corner to get loud movie explosions but not good for serious music reproduction. After a while I figured what the heck and purchased the Dayton 10” Titanic II (T1003) kit.My initial impressions were a little disappointing. Try as I might I could not get the settings on the subwoofer to balance properly with the main speakers. It seemed like every song/CD/album needed to have the subwoofer X-over settings adjusted differently. In retrospect this was probably a failing on my part. I was trying to do this by ear and it was just not working out.I then read Floyd E. Toooles’ book “Sound Reproduction and Rooms”. This is a must read.After some searching I purchased a Reckhorn F-1 electronic X-over. I installed this and broke out the handy-dandy audio level meter and laptop with audio frequency generator software. Using the level meter at my main listening position I tested and picked a location for the sub. I then set the X-over frequency for 70Hz and adjusted the levels.I could not be happier. The system sounds great for both music and movies. The bass is solid without sounding like that car next to you at the stop light. The result is a truly pleasing system that I use every day and I never feel the need to adjust anything when I change program material.Go ahead and get these speakers but understand that to get the most out of them you will need a good sub.Note: I don’t know if PE/Dayton has looked at creating or selling a home electronic x-over like the Reckhorn or if they are going to stick with the more industrial units from Behringer and the like. If not it might be a nice product offering for PE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic SpeakersThese speakers are fantastic! Assembly- The assembly was pretty straight forward, except for mounting the crossover boards. After some testing, I figured out the best place to mount the Low-pass XO was in the back bottom half of the speaker, and the High-pass XO on the center of the brace. I made soldered the connectors to the Low-pass XO before mounting. Soldering the High-pass XO was easy thanks to the removeable front baffle. Listening- Yes, there's not very much bass, but wow do the speakers performance everywhere else. I compared the RS621 to a pair of Dayton BR-1. The RS621 does everything better except bass. Which isn't even a problem if you have a sub-woofer. Over all, I'm very happy with the RS621 kit. Thank you Dayton and parts-express!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They will grow on youI have had these speakers about 1 year so I have some perspective. Assembly is typically of Part Express kits, easy and no big surprises. I used hot glue to attach the Crossover boards to the inside of the cabinet which so far has worked well. It is a little tight getting to the back of the enclosure but that is to be expected of a small speaker. The enclosures are rock solid, ridged and have a good finish very nice.After assembly I set them on stands out from the walls 4 feet or so and fired up a CD. My first impression was where is the bass? I know they are small but they seemed light on the low end. I understand that the Woofer is small and I was not expecting miracles, just hoping for a little more bottom end. Midrange and highs were clean and female vocals and horns sounded quite good but the bottom was just not there.Not to worry. I had some Acousta Stuf around so I put a little more in the enclosures and that seemed to help a little but not enough. I then ran them quite a while to break them in and that made a noticeable improvement. Lastly I played around with placement and found that, for me, the key was to place them against a wall. If you decide to purchase these speakers remember to give tem some break in time and experiment with placement and in the end I think you will be happy. They have given me good service for the last year and the more I listen to them the better I like them.
