I am going to have to build it soon. I am a fan of his designs. I have been really enjoying the Classix2 design in my bedroom for a year by now, even though I built them about 3 years ago, and I cannot imagine parting with them. I almost pulled the trigger on his Tarkus design, but I don't really have the room for anymore large speakers. Even more contrary to my usual habits being, I am generally underwhelmed by bookshelf speakers with small woofers. I always hear that nearly cliche description of, "It sounds like a much bigger speaker." Perhaps if you are a desktop listener, that may be apparent between one design or another. But to me, not so much. I built the C-note kit. I didn't expect much for a c-note, and figure I got just what I paid for. Again, I have too many speakers that are more potent than those in basically the same class, and the low price is now forgotten. \n\nCurrently, I am on Jeff Bagby's Continuums I built back in like 2017-ish, matched up with my twin Dayton RSS315HF subs in sealed boxes and holy crap, these are good. These are really special. They have the NLA RS28A tweeter. I know they did an update with a different tweeter but I am glad I have these. Between the Fusion Tempest, and these, there's two Jeff Bagby designs. The Tempests are behind these in the photo. I was going to listen to the Continuums for a day, and they frig'n hooked me again.\n\n\nAnyway, that brings me to Paul Carmody's Speedsters. He designs speakers my ears find agreeable, with regard to fun listening. He's not afraid to design what sounds good, instead of being so attached to the numbers. The other thing is that lately I have been doing a lot of tabletop, and near field listening. Especially late at night when I don't want to rattle the neighbors. After 10:30 pm, if I am still feeling like jamming, I can move to a more central part of the house and get my fix there on a smaller scale. Is why I built the small, class D amp, too, which should also work very well with the Speedsters. The final reason is really based on whimsy. I just think the speakers are cool looking and I want to own them. \n\nHere is the Speedster design\/writeup, even though most in the DIY arena are well aware of this model by now. I'll be ordering the kit sometime this week for a holiday project.
