    I have been listening to my newly assembled Proac 2.5 clones for a few days. To be honest, I am surprised! These diy's are smooth, detailed, musical, and have alot of bass for only 7" drivers. I have taken my subwoofer off line and am satisfied with the low end. I don't have much experience with high-end speakers so I can't compare to anything, but they kill my diy Audax A652 mtm kit.
    I also compared them to the GR Research AV1's, although I know this is not a fair comparison for frequency response, but they sound much nicer than the AV1's even though the AV1's image as well as the Proac 2.5's. The Proac 2.5's throw a soundstage that is wide and deep and they disappear on good recordings.
    If you are interested in a high-end design, give these speakers some serious consideration. The details are at: http://www.geocities.com/diyproac25/
    I think all parts excluding the boxes have cost me around $600.00
    I you are in the Phoenix Arizona area I would be glad to audition these speakers for you. Send me an email[​IMG]

    So, are there any "Do It Yourselfers" in Phoenix? I can't be the only one can I?
