Product Details

Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet

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.

Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet
Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected!This is my second speaker project and I could not be happier.I purchased the RS722 kit on a whim to make a center channel with my B&W 685's. The cross overs don't match up , but I figured that I could always repurpose it if I did not like it.I copied the box design, and layout from the Dayton Audio's website. The box was made with 3/4" MDF. The wholes were cutout using Jasper 200 jig (highly recommend).The end results are amazing! I don't do specialized frequency testing or anything like that, I just listened. What I heard was detail that never came through from my Current B&W monitors or previous B&W center channel. Little things like footsteps on the floor or change rattling were bright, clean and detailed.Sum up:I'm buying two more kits and using the Bower & Wilkins for surrounds.Setup:I am using an OPPO 104 Blue Ray, with an Onkyo 717 receiver. The center was filtered at 80hz.Helpful advice:1. If this is your first speaker project watch the parts-express videos.2. Practice cuts on scrap pieces.3. Allow the speaker time to break in. The first 5 minutes were not great, but then the speaker quickly started to break in allowing the detail came through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very surprised! :) Very happy!I had an old pair of infinity cabinets about 9" wide and 36" tall so I busted out all the old and built a 1 cf ft. cabinet inside with a shelf and couple supports. Made a new baffle cutting holes with the Jasper Circle Jig Model 200 and wow! Set them up for a friend in his man room and they sounded good right off the bat using an almost 20 yr. old Dennon, nothing special. Next will be some better equipment driving them... anxious for that! Couple weeks, they will be even better. I am planning on building another pair soon and making cabinets from scratch and I expect nothing but WOW! great buy and surprisingly low tones.... Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and sound quality!The sound quality of this kit is very comparable to offerings from well respected companies that are at least into the several thousand dollar range. From Mid-bass through the top end these speakers are very articulate, accurate and never in your face. I was actually suprised by the amount of bass produced by this system in the smallish boxes the design called for. I am certain you can get a more low end extension if you designed a little more box, but with my home theater subs filling in the low end, I am quite satisfied. The only negative thing I have had with this kit experience is that one of the low pass crossovers arrived non-functional. The problem was 2-fold. The crossover comes with a fiberboard type back attached to it with rivets which covers all the solder connections. Deciding to see what the problem was, I removed the cover and started troubleshooting. On the 2nd inductor in the circut, there was a cold solder joint. To compound this, it appears that the solder joints are trimmed with some type of wire cutters or something to allow the board backing to be installed. When the cold joint was trimmed, it left that joint electrically open. After finding this, I resoldered all of the joints on all of the boards just to be sure, but that was the only one bad enough to cause an immediate problem and everything is now working great.

Dayton Audio RS722 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet

Does it make a big difference if the port is in the front, i am putting 3 into a false wall (LCR with open space behind) .  Also would it hurt if were built less deep (2" less) and a little taller  (whatever required to still get 1 cubic foot). Thanks

Asked by: texno57
The port can be placed anywhere, putting it on the front will be fine. As long as the volume is the same the overall dimensions of the enclosure won't matter.

Hi How critical is the volume of the cabinet. I have a couple of handmade cabinets with approximately the same volume and size of the speaker elements. Do you think this can work and what adjustments would you suggest?

Asked by: larsmortensport
Cabinet volume can vary quite a bit depending on the result you want. If the volumes of the enclosures you have are within 10-20% of the recommended volumes for the drivers you will be fine, you might have to play with port length to get it dialed in to the sound you like.
