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.
