Re: CSS V series ML-TL with tweeter options

Made some more progress this weekend. Front panels and baffles nearly complete (still need to cut slot for port). Crossovers 90% wired and ready to go. Should they be mounted in any spot in particular?

Re: CSS V series ML-TL with tweeter options

....and that's a wrap









Got it all together this weekend and quite pleased with how they came out. They are very sturdy and sound great based on preliminary listening. Will post further impressions when I've had some real time with them. Thanks to Bob at CSS for helping answer my questions.

Re: CSS V series ML-TL with tweeter options

Thanks Bob

Finally got some dedicated listening time yet last night and I realize they have yet to break in. Regardless, I was very impressed with what I heard. The mid-range in particular is lovely. There is a real depth and detail to it that I've never heard before. The soundstaging and separation is also excellent.

The bass response is truly beyond what I'd expect for a driver of this size. The smaller V1s have a good extension and a bit more mid-bass bump due to the port but then tapers off for extremely deep notes. Quite comparable to a decent 6.5" two-way actually, impressive for a small driver. The V2 ML TL has a flatter bass response and it extends very deep. Listening to Leaving on a Jet Plane by Chantal Kreviasuk I was really taken back at the weight and authority behind the initial bass notes in this song.

The sound is subjectively "larger" than I expected in all regards. Hard Sun by Eddie Vedder truly sounded large and articulated on these speakers.

Looking forward to spending alot of time with these.

Re: CSS V series ML-TL with tweeter options

One lesson I did learn was about painting MDF though, I applied primer but the rounded edges have a slightly different texture due to the exposed fibers than the main flat portions. No enough to bother me but I would definitely apply a dedicated sealer next time. Something to keep in mind for anyone starting out

Another couple pictures in their current setup





And their little brothers, ported V1s, for the surround
