      Product details

      Overnight Sensations MT Speaker Kit Pair

       

      When Paul Carmody first listened to the Overnight Sensations speakers that he designed he exclaimed, "I wish I had a time machine. I would go back to my bedroom when I was in Jr. High or High School and give these to myself. These are the little bookshelf speakers I imagined I had: huge soundstage, deep bass, and tiny box. In reality, back then all I had were some impish Minimus-7s."

       

      The Overnight Sensations are designed to be a quick, economical build that can put out a surprisingly big sound in a small box. Could be a weekender project for an addict, a gift for a teenager (see above), or—in Paul's case—a set of small, full-bodied monitors that he could listen to while grading papers.

       

      To start a do-it-yourself’er off right, this kit includes a pair of high-grade 1/2" Baltic birch cabinets that have been precisely CNC cut and rabbeted for perfect fit-and-finish when assembling the cabinet, as well as perfect driver fit.

       

      For the Overnight Sensations' driver arrangement, Paul selected the versatile Dayton Audio ND20FA-6 3/4" neodymium silk dome tweeter and mated it to the attractive HiVi B4N 4" aluminum midbass woofer. To extract as much bass as possible, Paul decided upon a cabinet size of roughly 0.16 cubic feet (4.5 liters) which is tuned to 53 Hz using a 1-3/8" diameter port that is 6" long.

       

      This kit includes nearly everything you need to build a top-notch pair of speakers in no time flat, including: a pair of knock-down cabinets, drivers, ports, and crossover components.

      I built these speakers a few months ago, but instead of using the stock crossover components from the kit, I changed the coil in the LP filter with slightly better one (less resistance) and almost all of the capacitors with Jantzen Audio Silver Z-Cap. I have to admit, the speakers are amazing, but don’t get too excited about their performance just by reading the reviews all over the Internet. It’s true that they dig quite deep for their size, but let’s not forget that they employ as small as 4” mid/bass driver after all. I would say the Overnight Sensations MT are good example for well implemented design with such small drivers, but “defying the laws of physics”, as one reviewer has put it, is a bit of exaggeration. That being said, I still give them high rating for they have other virtues and are worthy of their own. In my opinion, they are excellent desktop speakers, especially when space is scarce or limited. You can always get an active subwoofer, should you need more authority in the bass department. I for one, would like to explore this option for sure, but for now I’m more than happy with my current setup without a subwoofer - just the speakers in a near-field configuration on my desktop. So, if you decide to build them, I would recommend avoiding placing them in a large room and away from you. Their full potential is as near-field speakers in a small room - preferably on a desktop or as TV sound in a bedroom for instance. They’re quite good for this job - nicely expressed and detailed midrange, combined with great clarity, but without fatigue. My only concern is the price. There’re similarly priced commercial designs out there which look and may even sound better than the Overnight Sensations. I personally prefer the DIY way, but if I have to recommend them to a friend, I would probably hesitate to do so, just because of the price. Hence the 4 stars.

      These kits make up to an extremely good pair of bookshelf speakers well above the average . The base is quite reasonable for the size and there is good clarity to the music. There is a little muddiness n the mid-range which is to be expected and they should not be pushed to far with the volume. Pleasant sound stage mounted on a couple of 15" steel stands fom Amazon. The making of the crossover is a bit of a pain and a capacitor and inductance coil may only really be needed together with a slight tweeter attenuation. Recommended
