Re: Jeff Bagby's Kairos 3 way project completed

Pgroben- I was looking for a full range speaker from the start, and although the Kairos caught my eye years ago when first designed, I was waiting for the woofer to make a full-range system.  So when Jeff published the woofer design, I got serious.  I've never listened to the Kairos alone (as the cr...

Re: Jeff Bagby's Kairos 3 way project completed

Good question! I played around with that for a while, and made a couple test pieces to see what worked best.  When I cut the 1/2" roundovers for the sides from solid stock, I also cut similar pieces for the top.  That left a rounded raised lip on the top front edge of the cabinet that stood pro...

I would use your low pass crossover as designed for the woofer, and a modified version of your high pass for the lower impedance satellites. Any suggestions on cap and...

Re: The Kairos and Continuum Three-Way Loudspeakers

Jeff- Great, thanks very much! I'm building your "sorta universal crossover" now for a pair of North Creek speakers and a woofer/stand (10" Vifa) that I built some time ago. It measures flatter as a passive 3 way with your crossover than with the plate amps I had been using. I hope to...
