    Funny you should post this, Brett. I have already decided to build these as well as the center that will hopefully be designed soon. I'm going with the MTM towers up front with MTM bookshelves for the back. I'm pretty sure that Chris Carswell has built these as well and for the money he really liked them (IIRC). I'll be building my own but I agree that John's cabinets look incredible! I'll let everyone know what I think when I finally get them done.
     
  2. The price is definately right!

    I am sure you can get better, but not sure at the price!

    Hi Guys,

    Thought I'd put up a couple quick notes here. The full webpage for these is at this address:

    http://www.stryke.com/new/speakerkits.html

    For those who already have the SA071's and TW1's, the new crossover schematics for the S1-B and S1-MTM are both posted on the page.

    The intent for the S1 kits was to make a very affordable kit that sounds much more expensive than it is. I think the goal was accomplished. The S1-B kit is about half the cost of a Kit81 or GR AV/1. The S1-MTM kit is only around half the cost of a 281 or AV/2 kit.

    A shielded center channel is in the works and will be available soon as well.

    John

    Got anything similar in the works using your ribbons (5.1 setup) for DIY?

    Lynn,

    Sending you an email in a few minutes.

    Chris,

    I do have plans for some monitors using the RTW2 and the SA071. The only issues are that the RTW2 is really too tall to use in an MTM alignment, and it also has a very limited vertical dispersion.

    This kinda fits into what Brett said about line arrays and what Chris asked about alignments using the RTW2. I do have a large dipole baffle I did using 12 SA071 and 12 RTW2. Here's a pic:

    This in some ways would be similar to the Linus array, but it is a large dipole instead of a sealed enclosure.

    Hey Dan,
    I built some of these about year ago. I like them for the little $$$ invested. John's new "TM" & "MTM" XO will be better than the versions I'm using now:

    John also is going to make a shielded version of the woofer as well. Hope to see ya in ATL [​IMG]
