    Anybody tried Selah Audio speakers?

    Post by vtshopdog on Sat Jun 25, 2016 6:50 pm

    On a mission to do some wood nerd stuff and planning to get my tools out later this summer to build new speaks, anyone here have experience pairing their amp with Selah Audio speakers and kits?  They seem to have a small, loyal fanboy following.

    Had never noticed their stuff before last week. Their prebuilts are mostly more than I want to go, but he offers kits with nice drivers that are actually pretty reasonable when compared with Madi-Zaph-Troels at same level.

    Thanks

    Timely thread. I'd like to try biamping but my speakers aren't set up for it. I remember some kit speaker threads around here or somewhere, but couldn't find any when I went back to look.

    They look like nice speakers but they are not very efficient. Tube amps prefer speakers that are more efficient. Which speaker model did you have in mind?

    Yes, Tempesta looks like good possibility and I am intrigued with learning how to build a curved cabinet.  Apparently his efficiency ratings are more conservative than most commercial products, but I built M125's with idea that they should power just about any speaker out there.       Rick at Selah has been quick with reply to my emails and he also seems to do lots of customized iterations of his designs

    In meantime I'm back in Troels website and now considering his 3 way classic lineup (this one has super spendy AT drivers but similar price point to the Tempesta kit):
    http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/AT-3WC.htm#Using_ScanSpeak_D3004/604010_Be-dome
    Does not hurt that Euro is about 1.1x USD right now.

    So basically I'm all over the map, but that's part of the fun.  Started out thinking floor standers but now 3 way monitor seems like much better WAF, plus half the mass and surface area for lifting and finishing during construction.  

    Like all DIY, at some point one throws the money down then spends dozens of hours building with no chance to audition.  Pay ahead of time and hope it sounds great??  (or perhaps be so emotionally invested that one imagines it sounds great???)

    Bluemeanies- is your upside down anti gravity M125 avatar gone now?  I always liked the idea of a 45 lb floating tube amp.....

    Floating m125 gone..if I had to choose I would pick the http://www.selahaudio.com/lineup/
    but that is my opinion.
    I am not a DIY when it involves electronics and speakers.

    I've been very happy with the Troels speakers I built last summer/fall/winter. They did take longer than expected to buld.
