I want to build and audiophile quality 2-way bookshelf and I am perplexed when I look at the large number of kits and plans available. I am currently using a 20 year old set of Paradigm mini monitors which use a poly 6.5" driver with a 1" aluminum dome. These have been good units but I know there has been some real improvement in speaker design in the last 20 years and with my aging system now is the time to upgrade. I have previously built the Overnight Sensations that I use at my desktop and they are great but too small for my home theater system. I consider myself an audiophile and I play 75% music 25% videos so I place high value on sound stage, imaging and definition. Maybe a Jeff Bagby design favorite?
I would like to stay in the 1/2 cu ft size range if possible but I could go up to approx. 1 cu ft size if need be. Price range $350 to $850 per pair. I am very interested in the Statement Monitor by Curt Campbell and am intrigued with the use of the ribbon tweeters in that model.
