Adelphos Full Speaker Kit, by Jeff Bagby
The Adelphos is Greek for “brother”. And, the Kairos is that Brother! It uses the same components as the Kairos but is optimized for a standard, flat baffle. If you found the Kairos slanted baffle design difficult to build or unattractive, then the Adelphos version is just for you.
The network has been optimized for the flat baffle and though not as transient perfect as the Kairos, it is still an exceptional system. Jeff admitted that you probably couldn’t hear the difference between the two designs.
This kit features the Satori line of drives from SB Acoustics – the 6″ Papyrus cone woofer and low distortion, ring dome tweeter. Rounding out the design is premium crossover components, featuring perfect layer inductors and premium Clarity, CSA capacitors and Lynk resistors. All this means is that you won’t need to worry if you have gotten a speaker kit with inferior parts.
If you were originally hesitant about building the Kairos, angled front, I encourage you to build the Aldelphos version.
Please note the photo is only on one side of the kit pair.
