Digital Speaker system- Instrument 2

instrument 2 the best stereo speakers?

Instrument 2 has been revised as of 11/21/2009. This is a full range, sealed, 3 way

dynamic speaker drivers system. Time alignment is achieved in the digital domain within the HTPC. Stereo imaging is incredible as a result.

We have several tutorial pages to help with this speaker build. The Instrument 2 – DIY Speaker Cabinet help page.

We are running a Special on our Speaker Plans! Go to our Digital Audio Speakers and Speaker Plans page.

Also a factory direct speakers help page on building the Instrument 2 – DIY Speaker Box Design.

To make the build easier try this How to – build a speaker box Assembly Platform.

The Instrument 2 loud speaker may be a better all around loudspeaker than the others if you need a system for both home theater and music duties.

Factory direct speakers i2 Revision Kit: includes usher 8945p mid-range drivers, and updated digital crossover settings.

Note: I don’t believe gaining a few db is worth losing the superior transient response of a sealed speaker box design. To get extra output use more efficient speaker driver recommendations, more drivers, more amplifier power, or all of the above if you must, but transient response is one of the things that gives live music its punchy, feel it in your chest- sound.

Instrument 3 Dipolar Loud speaker

Di-pole, 4 way, dynamic/ribbon driver loudspeaker for the ultimate in transparency and dynamics balance.

If you enjoy the sound ofribbon drivers – Speaker Driver Recommendationsthis is likely the right speaker for you. Google the benefits of dipole speakers for more information.

This speaker portrays a huge layered sound-stage with deep front to back depth. Images are positioned realistically in space with air around each performer. This is an incredibly musical design.

If you typically like the transparency of a speaker like the Magnepan 20.1 you will likely be thrilled with this model. Similar performance character as the big Maggy but with punchier and better defined bass.

The Instrument 3 system may not have the last amount of gut wrenching transient performance of a very good sealed box loudspeaker.

(such as the Instrument 2 -Read full Speaker Review ) This speaker system is very tall standing at over 7ft. It is also very heavy at around 300lb depending on the speaker drivers you use. Built using layers of MDF, birch ply, and a sand filled baffle.

Instrument 1 Loudspeaker with Single Speaker Drivers:

Omni polar single driver speaker picture - Digital Audio Speakers

This is a single driver speaker that often gets use with an active sub-woofer.

Sealed box configuration reaches to around 80hz in room. This speaker is very coherent and musical.

If used without an active sub-woofer and bass is not rolled off with an on-board crossover (within the receiver pre-amplifier)(set Main LR in receiver to ‘small’) below 80hz, maximum acoustic output will be limited.

A variety of full range speaker drivers could be used with this speaker plan.

We recommend the CSS FR125sr and the Tang band W4-1337SA.

These are both full range drivers each with their individual strengths.
