This center channel was created to match and aid the 1.618 3-way towers during surround sound reproduction. Its main focus was to match the upper chamber of the 1.618 towers. However a ported enclosure was chosen to aid in the extension of the response. The same xover point was used as were with the 1.618ís. On a side note, it was specially constructed to fit perfectly in my TV stand. For smaller spaces the 1.618s can be used.
In conclusion; Perfect! My home theater front is now seamless. The center matches very well with the towers. Dialogue is very clear and has an excellent warmth quality to it.
Please visit diyaudioprojects.com to view this design in more detail. All the details are available for free to build your own pair. If complete drawings are needed; they are for sale. If completely built crossovers are needed; I can build them.
Please note that the SD1.1A has been discontinued by HiVi and is in limited supply. Please use the Q1R as a substitute. I have gotten reports that the Q1R actually performs better than the SD1.1A. Cleaner and smoother.
