Product Details

Dayton Audio RS722CBK Speaker Kit Curved Gloss Black

Inspired by the DIY Project Showcase's popular "Dr. K's MTM." The RS722 speaker system features two of the most popular Dayton Reference Series drivers: the RS28A-4 1-1/8" Aluminum Dome Tweeter, and a pair of RS180S-8 7" Aluminum Woofers. A carefully tuned crossover design composed of premium capacitors, inductors, and resistors integrates these world-class drivers. The results are simply astounding, with soundstage, presentation, and accuracy rivaling much higher priced off-the-shelf speakers. If you demand a speaker that excels at imaging, dynamic range, and sheer realism, the RS722 system is the clear solution. Available in your choice of cabinet finishes (gloss black, cherry, maple), and in straight- or arc-sided versions. Sold individually.

Specifications: • Impedance: 4 ohms • Frequency response: 41-20,000 Hz • SPL: 87.5 dB 2.83V/1m • Power handling: 100 watts RMS • Cabinet dimensions: 22" H x (9" front, 4.5" back) W x 14.4" 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 RS722CBK Speaker Kit Curved Gloss Black

At what frequency are these speakers crossed over at? How many db/octave? I am thinking of using this kit without the crossover and using a digital one instead with two amps.

Asked by: Semaphore
The crossover point for this speaker is roughly 1650 Hz.

1. Do these come with pre-cut holes on the baffle?  2. Are the MIdBass and tweeter holes cut in a straight line (in the middle), or is the whole for the tweeter closer to one side, like that of Dr K's MTM?   3. Where is the port located? 

Asked by: M17NY
Yes these come with a pre cut baffle and an offset tweeter. The port is on the rear of the cabinet.

What kind of Speaker Stands would work good with these? I would like the tweeter to be roughly at ear level sitting on a couch.

Asked by: jeezmo
You will have to roughly measure your eye/ear level while in a seating position. 24" stands will probably be enough for this, as long as they support the weight of the speaker the type of stand will make no difference.

Is this a pair or a single speaker? Thanks

Asked by: Apostolicman
This is a single speaker.

Hello,  I`m going to purchase two of these kits and I was wondering would it be a problem upgrading the caps to 1% Dayton caps and also upgrading the resistor to the better Mils resistors.  Any input and help would be greatly appreciated.  Hope t

Asked by: PDCAMP
As long as the values are all the same it will not be a problem changing the cap or resistor types or brands.

Is this sold as a pair or as a single?

Asked by: Big D
This is a kit to build a single high quality speaker. For a stereo system you would purchase two kits. I have heard these and would compare them to several high end towers costing hundreds more. My con is that they are low power handling however their efficiency makes up for this and then some. Nice to hear a well rounded smooth responce without a ton of dsp required.
