Cubette mk2s

Unread post by Dr Bunsen Honeydew » Wed Apr 25, 2018 10:36 am

First prototype now running, Sounds at least as good as the mk1. Most of the Cube benefits at a silly price = £300 the pair

Finish black acrylic only.

This prototype pair will become my loaners as they have no printing on them as the production ones will have, and we will see how the doped thinner acrylic travels.

It was the mk1 that ended up impossible to build sensibly so was abandoned. The new case is much easier to use.

Mk1 https://nva-hifi.co.uk/CUBETTE_HTML/

Collecting production cabs next week, so available to order on the forum.

This means I can list at ebay a full starter system at ebay for £600 :shock: including all cables.

I presume you have the same bass-mid driver as the Cube3 in this, Doc - which tweeter are you using ?

Black acrylic square box with the same grilles as mk1 - but pics will come eventually. They will have to for ebay, who are driving me mad about pics - every single one has to be redone as they say they are the wrong size.

I've sent a pic to the Doc. They look really good in the flesh and sound just like a baby version of the bigger ones. Apologies if the pic is sh*t..
