I made a pair C-Notes using the MDF knock down cabinets. When I finish building, but before veneering the boxes, I did a lot of listening to them. After about two weeks of critical listening and measuring with the Dayton microphone, I felt like they were a great little speaker, but not quite lively enough in the treble. I called tech support and talked to Andrew. The answer we decided on was to change the value of the resistor on the tweeter to a lower value. It did exactly what I wanted in my fairly dead room. It brightened the response just enough.
Small, fun and good sounding speakers
MDF with thick walnut veneer (1/16”) with mahogany trim strips.
C-Note crossover with two modifications. A .22mf cap to reduce the very slight high breakup in the aluminum woofer(probably not needed).
Replacing the tweeter resistor with a smaller value to brighten the tweeter’s response in my room.
Tips & Tricks:
I used the wood glue iron on method to attach the walnut veneer. Easier to align the pieces of veneer.
Great kit and excellent service.
About the Designer:
I’m not the designer, but I had had many, many years of experience working in all areas of the audio video business. I have built speakers in the distant past, but the kit from PE is very satisfying.
