The Spirit Wind Monitor, by Jeff Bagby
This previously “word of mouth” only kit is now available. The is not much information written because Jeff didn’t think there would be a market for this build. The woofers are very expensive and are special order. We have been able to get the woofers built now in less than 3 weeks, so the kit is officially for sale.
If Jeff is able to provide more build data on this premium speaker kit, we will publish it here.
The tweeter for this kit is the first tweeter in the Revelator series by Scan-Speak. It might be older, but certainly not out of date in performance and sound reproduction. The large, concave faceplate allows it to give you excellent off-axis response.
The 6.5″ woofer is by AudioTechnology and features a Polypropylene cone with a rubber edge. If you are able to attend regional audio shows like Axpona or Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, you are sure to hear commercial systems using the AudioTechnology Drivers. You can also hear it here 🙂 Indiana DIY 2015

The cabinet is difficult with the 5-degree slant. The faceted edges are not necessary but are very attractive.
