Inspired by Parker Audio

Over the years I have listened to some very good speakers, and Daves speakers always stuck in my mind as doing things better than most. (Actually, doing less wrong than most) Here is what I have been listening to lately…

I fell in love with these ultra light paper cone vintage drivers made by Grundig. Loose interpretation of the Parker Audio configuration but adding the baffle-less Grundig¬†drivers is what you see here. Other than a single cap protecting the Heil tweeters, the speakers are crossoverless. Flat response is possible by wiring the dipole Grundigs in series which brought down the midrange sensitivity to match the bass output of the single 5ohm Grundig driver in the sealed box, and the 4ohm Heil. Putting the Grundigs back to back in dipole¬†arrangement, along with the Heil tweeters sounds very real. My big JBL horns can’t come close to the presence these speakers have.
