Omnidirectional 3 Way "Dalek" Towers

Hand crafted by a carpenter and audio enthusiast in the 90's. They are a 3 way omnidirectional design constructed of Australian Jarrah. Speakers fire upwards into cones made of solid turned plywood. This configuration is used in legendary speakers like the Linkwitz Pluto and Tannoy Orbitus.

Tri-wired, included is an external 3 way crossover to use with a standard stereo amplifier. Drivers are Response brand, suitable for amps 20-100W. 8 inch bass driver. 2 inch dome midrange handles 1-5Khz. Total cabinet volume is approx .1 cubic meters with bass port underneath. Internally there is a baffle and acoustic material, creating a hybrid of transmission line and bass reflex loading. Not highly tuned, the bass is natural and extended. Sound equally good both close to walls and in free space.

Extremely solid and heavy at 70kg. 158cm tall, base is 42cm square. Imposing, but they actually take up less room than many normal speakers. Bases are granite, feet and hardware solid brass. Quality of construction and finish is excellent, these were built with love.

Culmination of a lifetimes development from a prolific speaker builder. The cabinet and lathe work alone entailed hundreds of hours of skilled work. The sound quality and musical experience is better than speakers costing many thousands. These were enjoyed for some years as part of a large system in a performance space.

6 pairs were made in a limited production run, 4 have already sold to very happy new owners, this will be the last set available.
