The Finalist, by Curt Campbell and Jim Holtz
The latest design of this loudspeaker kit uses the Morel, CAT328 tweeter and replaces the NLA, RS28F Curt was very pleased with the design using the new tweeter and you will be too.
After huge success with the Statement series, Jim was given the challenge to see if he could shrink that great performance into a more compact three-way system. The system is based on the same 8″ Dayton woofer, but a new Vifa/Peerless mid range was selected and the “go to” soft dome for Dayton rounds out the design. Curt does his crossover magic once again with his minimal parts philosophy.
So how did the system rate with Jim? In a brief word – Fantastic! The Vifa midrange took everyone by surprise and Jim says, this is the best system he has designed to date for HiFi. In fact, Jim and Curt have gone back and performed a redesign of the original Statement series for retrofit to the Vifa mids.
