SBA 5" Ceramic Kit

Post by dst » Thu May 31, 2018 12:21 am

Your copy under the 5" woofer indicates Jeff Bagby is designing a kit for SBA and you will have a link to it by April.  Is such a kit still in the works?

I had expected to have it ready in April, but the kit uses a 5x8" passive radiator that SB has not shipped yet.  We are hoping for sometime this summer.

There will be two versions.  Due to a mixup, the first one was done with the new Beryllium tweeter.  http://www.sbacoustics.com/index.php/co ... ac-c000-4/

The second version will be with the SB29SDAC

Thank you, Mark.

Of course Jeff is recovering from his replacement surgery, so wishing him well.  I contributed to his fund and hope others on this forum do as well.  Sounds like his work is done on the speakers and it is up to SBA to make it happen for you. 

The Forum has been working sporadically for me in recent weeks.  It now seems better.  Thanks for all you do for the DIY community.
