A good re-wiring and re-screening at a good professional House of paris HP and forgotten the sound of yesteryear, the difference is amazing! Don’t doubt any of that!

Of the 66 mk1 agree yield low 86dB if I remember correctly. Aye, we appear to be in pretty much total agreement: I’m sure I could build a speaker the same size as your Lockwoods that’d sound bloody horrible in the bass end: The bass is clean, controlled and full bodied.

Post 4 of 5. I agree with what you’re saying, but I also think much depends on the room they’re being used in and the amp that’s driving them. This proved to be true with this speaker.

I also have a single 66 available.

Request a new review. This speaker sounds best with a flat treble response. That maybe the case clestion but when i had the ’66’ i live in a house with one def neighbour, hence loudness wasnt an issue.

It also does the same job with the Lockwoods upstairs in a much smaller room. The high and lowpass slopes overlap so that when combined, there is a broad hump from 4 – 14k in the treble response.

However, the advantage of DSP implementations is that this can be easily changed. Log in Become a member. Today I realize how much they each listen to me plaisent. The 66’s and replacement ‘s have a dltton response rather than an assertive one, but the Ansars are lively and I suspect perfect for this job While the drivers are out, any thoughts on steel lining the cabs? After considering the Klipsch Hersey speakers my attention has moved to the Ditton 66s.

Sort by most recent most useful. Must admit I loved the 66 and always wanted a pair, but never had the room. I would agree with this to a point, not even having heard the speakers as an original pair yet, but knowing a bit about how cabinets work hopefully. The other Is a rigid cabinet that drives the resonances up high in frequency.

These celeestion a total cap value of 24uf so 1 crossover is correct. You don’t actually need that much room, Geoff, in order for them to perform superbly well. It’s one of the reasons why, much as I admire what statics do in certain areas, I couldn’t live with them in the long-term, as I’d miss the ‘heft’ and loudness capabilities that I desire, when the music and the mood takes me!


The thinness of the upper spectrum, Retailer and rich, never aggressive on a violin, a bagpipe or a bomb.

Fully active – this is a very popular option amongst DIYers. In for me they work ditton a technics su-V8X and I have a very high quality sound. I will only charge exact shipping in US. Fully passive – we could have simply redesigned the crossover.

I listened to these speakers for more than 20 years, from to The top end of the dome has a hump centred around 5k – this is critical because the intended crossover is here. Mis the piece apart what fun if you have the ear.

My own diy cabinets use constrained layer damping to give a rigid but well damped cabinet. They are in excellent condition. I always use these two columns today for monitoring in my own recording studio, they became indispensable. The medium rather sublime voice, made a piano, oboe.

Often their low yield critical t I do not agree at all the above.
