Jim had a good time and our entry was well received. This was for the Criton.2T in the prototype ML_TL cabinets.  We will post more after we receive the measurements taken.

Introducing TEAM

As CSS moves forward with new products I want to acknowledge that so much of our history has been a TEAM effort. The most important part of this is family; from the inheritance we've received from my wife's parents, to the website and graphics work from my son at Reimer-Reason Communications and our decision to move to Abbotsford to support our other son and daughter-in-law and their premature children.

Others worthy of mention are Dan Wiggins and Chris Brunhaver of the early Adire days, Danny Richie of GR Reseach and Al Wooley of RAW Acoustics, the first person I connected with here in BC. Manufacturers in China, Taiwan as well as Canada and USA have produced a variety of products for CSS. Both North American and International dealers have carried CSS products and we have had support from the DIY community all over the world.

As new or revised products are released the specific TEAM contributors will be acknowledged; some existing kits will simply have the "T" added to the current names like the Criton.1T and the Criton.2T and the documentation will list those who have been TEAM members. Some kits may also be designated according to the recommended enclsure loading,eg. "S" for sealed, "P" for ported, "ML-TL" for mass loaded transmission line. 

Summer Specials

Criton.1T $419.95 and Criton.2T $599.95

V1 $199, V2 $299 and V3 $399 speaker kits

The V1 is the follow on from the VX.1 which became necessary because of the difficulties with the earlier LD25X tweeter. Much of the design remains the same, still using the optional Parts Express 0.25 cu ft cabinets or a custom built cabinet.This is also the entry level design of the V series and is followed by the V2 and the V3.  The V2 uses 2 of the VWR126X in 0.50 cu ft space and the V3 adds the LDW7 in a 1.0 cu ft design in a 3 way configuration.

There are numerous upgrade options available which are described here V1 Options.

The V2 is the follow on from the VX.2. Much of the design remains the same still using the optional Parts Express 0.50 cu ft cabinets or a custom built cabinet.This is also the middle design between the V1 using only 1 of the VWR126X woofers in a .25 cu ft cabinet and the V3 which adds the LDW7 in a 1.0 cu ft design in a 3 way configuration.

The upgrade options are detailed here V2 Options.

V3 stock kit, check the forum for Options.

 

LD22C and LD22F Tweeters, $70 a pair.  These are used in the V1, V2 and V3 speaker kits.

The LD22 series of 22mm high performance tweeters fits a unique position between 19mm (3/4”) and more conventional 25/26mm (1”) units. The 2 face plates were developed after a series of prototypes were designed and measured. This Canadian effort, along with local face plate production, assembly and packaging, results in a proud “Made in Canada” achievement.

The Datasheet is available.

The New RT2 pure ribbon tweeter at $100 each.

The RT2 is a new true ribbon tweeter.  It features a non-corrugated honeycomb aluminum ribbon with an area of 510 mm2 and a mass of only 16 mg. With a flat impedance of 6 ohms, rated power of 30W, sensitivity of 91dB/W/m, it is capable of excellent dynamic range.
