Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected..Just finished these speakers, tested them last night and they sound great. Very accurate sound stage, It was like hearing many of the recordings for the fist time. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for the buckI was searching for speaker to compliment my TV setup and to free up my Atlas in order to run the Atlas over tube amps only. The MTM TL are not efficient enough to run lower powered tube amps.Since I was always interested in different base setups a transmission line was a welcome experiment and I'm not diappointed. Easy to build and wire. Only issue is the crossover which does not seem to have a real place in the speaker cabinet it self. Putting it inside would mean to never get to it in order to recap it in 10 years or so.Since the inside of the cabinet is pretty limited for the crossover I build footings to acommodate them. This also lifts the tweeter a little bit more to ear level which helps a lot with the somehow dull high frequencies.Not sure, some people are complaining about the missing bass SPL, for me, they have a little bit too much compared to the mids and highs. They need a lot of distance to the back wall or the one-note bass becomes too boomy. I experimented with stuffing and I think I need to stuff more in order to control the bass lines better when listening to music.For my main application as TV speakers they are perfect since voice definition is very good but for movies also here the boomy bass needs some work.In general I would consider the high frequency definition a little weak but maybe I'm spoiled by my Atlas which are now only be used for music and have an advantage here, so that might be unfair.In general, pretty darn good speaker, easy build and when you know what to do with the crossover a very nice setup. Can't beat the price for what you get!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST for First-Time BuildersI bought this kit several years ago as my first speaker build. It is a simple, elegant design, that is easy to follow; and a great introduction to the speaker building world. I can't recommend enough building a pair like this before designing your own.I was completely blown away with the sound for how much they cost. In the end I have some EQ in the mid section, but I am satisfied with the sound overall. And don't forget the extended bass you get with a well-designed transmission line!The only thing that almost brought it down to 4 stars was that 2 of the internal corners (the 45 degree pieces for the TL) were ~1/16" wider than they should have been. The support staff had a hard time believing me since the pieces are CNCed, but they were definitely a bit out of tolerance, enough to make the box not seal properly. I ended up just slowly shaving them down until they fit properly.Since then, I have designed a few speakers from the ground up. I have been a live sound professional for several years; but I must admit that without building (and understanding) this kit first, I would have been in over my head.And no, speakers do not just have to be painted black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sound! Not too easy for a newby though.First off....I am a complete amateur when it comes to speakers. This was my first time to do a project like this with no wiring or wood working experience. My suggestion.....you can't have too many wood clamps....I had four and needed more. The instructions are poor but the online how to videos are a great help. The finished product....I'm happy and the sound is great for the money! I almost want to buy another set just to do a better job the second time around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from $250 in the trash.see photo, after I glued on one side, I realized I had not installed the "T-nuts"...
Date published: 2015-01-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than expected.I got these after reading the many glowing reviews on them. I've never built a speaker before and I figured that it would be fun. It was a very straight forward process thanks to some easy to find crossover schematics (thank you Google). The cabinets went together very easily and the crossovers were a snap to put together. As for the sound, I don't think it can be overstated how good these speakers are. Especially when you consider the price. They play quite clean and can get very loud. As others have said they put out a decent amount of bass, but adding a subwoofer really helps round out the lower end. I have these running in stereo mode on a Denon AV-890 receiver, teamed with a Bic F-12 subwoofer for anyone who is interested. Could not be happier with the F-12 as well. Going to have to get started on the Tritrix center channel now. A kit for that would be nice as well....hint hint Parts Express.

Any specs about frequency response and SPL?

Asked by: lucpla
Average sensitivity for this system will be about 87 dB. Frequency response is ~50-20kHz.
Answered by: MattP
Date published: 2015-08-05

Hi, do you have any sensitivity figures for the speakers?

Asked by: Royal
The sensitivity of the speakers are about 90 dB.
Answered by: MattW
Date published: 2015-04-20

I see power handling is estimated to be 60-75 watts RMS & roughly 87dB@1W/1M. What would be the approximate increase in wattage w/high-pass filtering set to 80Hz? (On an Onkyo TX-NR818, 135W/ch RMS, and a Dayton Sub-120 for LFE)

Asked by: B Chilson
There is no increase in actual power handling, just an increase in output capability. With a high pass at 80 Hz these will run into thermal issues before they reach mechanical limits, but I suspect they will be quite loud at this point. I doubt you will ever use the full power potential of the receiver.

What size amp do i need , also my room is 20 by 14 ,are they big enough or need something stronger ? Thank you

Asked by: emik33
Any amp that is 50-100 watts RMS will work fine with these speakers. They should fill that room easily, but whether it is enough for volume levels you may like to listen to is impossible to say.

I do a lot of vintage speaker refurb, but I gotta tell ya I've no patience for installing veneer. :-) How well do these accept sprayed semi gloss paint for a final finish?

Asked by: ProPerDoper
Don't go the veneer route if you don't have time. As for paint you will need to prime it with a good primer maybe two coats of primer to give the paint a chance to stand on it's own.

I'm a total beginner with no supplies. What additional supplies will I need for this? wiring, glue, etc....

Asked by: Jbird75
The easiest way to construct these cabinets is with standard wood glue like Titebond II and clamps of your choice. If you do not want to wait for each panel to dry, you can use small screws or brad nails from a nail gun along with the use of glue. Standard speaker wire is all that is required for internal wiring, anything that is 16 or 18 gauge will work fine for this. The crossover assembly can be done on a piece of cardboard with the components hot glued in place and simply soldered together. The cabinet finish will be up to you.
