The Testarossa Loudspeaker Kit, by Jeff Bagby
This kit was a result of Jeff’s curiosity with the RAAL tweeter design, which started with the Auricle – TM. What he found interesting was the tweeter’s internal transformer section. It could be manufactured to start a natural roll off. Then, combined with the passive network components, it gave the desired slope. As a result, the crossover has two components in the tweeter section.
The cabinet is 8.5″ wide, 39″ Tall, and 13″ Deep.
