Speakers 

I wanted a woofer to augment the low frequencies of the LS3/5a project below, and I decide to build the woofer section of the vintage KEF 104 and experiment with crossovers.



LS3/5a project    New 10-2019
This LS3/5a Project involved building this vintage speaker using all new components from Stirling Broadcast and Falcon Acoustics, including new Falcon-made drivers.  Includes lots of crossover examination/tweaking measurements.


Continuum speakers  New 7-2018
Jeff Bagby designed mini-monitor to continue the tradition of the famous BBC designed LS3/5a.


Designed to work with my Kairos 3 ways speakers (below).



Frequency response measurements of RS Minimus 7, ADC 404, Fried B2, JR149 and LS3/5a speakers.

CAOW1   New 9/2009

Fried Model H

This landmark 3 way speaker system designed by Irving Fried in 1978 consists of two small satellites plus a large common dual channel transmission line subwoofer, using classic KEF drivers.  


Fried Model B/2  New 6/07

This mini-monitor speaker was an evolution of the satellite of the Model H, and competed with the Rogers LS3/5a and JR 149 among others.  With the Model T subwoofer (below), it formed the Model H/2 system.   Lots of reference material here.
