Aletheia Audio (DeanG) crossovers Type B2

Recommended Posts

I'm selling my barely used B2 crossovers by Aletheia Audio. I installed them mid August (sounded wonderful) and then bought khorns 3 weeks later. Maybe 20 hours on them max.

 

Built with Jensen, Dayton, and paper in oil. See pics. There are holes in the mounting board as I did install them.

 

Asking $585 plus shipping (net to me if using PayPal).

Best thing for your cornwalls folks... you shouldnt wait if you have any inclination. Beter than waiting for a build.

They look huge in this shot but the mounting board is 7.25x10.

and of course these wouldn't be for sale except I lucked way out and got a pair of khorns to replace!

I charged either $650 or $675, which included shipping. I charged a lot for labor -  $150 per board. I know it seems like a lot, but I put a lot of time into each build, and my time is valuable to me.

Thanks for your reply Dean. It was the second amount of those.

Sounds right - $675 with shipping included. Shipping generally runs me $45 because of the weight (the new autoformer and low pass coil are much heavier than what Bob or Al use) - and then of course the oak and capacitors - all heavier than what's normally used.

Thank you Dean and Ryan for the gesture.  Ask a polite question, get a polite answer....

As I mentioned to someone else in a PM, I installed one at a time so I could see if there was a difference. There was. My wife and I noticed right away that the sound was better. sound is subjective so I won't begin to put any adjectives here. We really enjoyed spinning vinyl or iPod on random on Friday nights while the Cornwalls sang.

Gritting my teeth right now because I have a pair of Cornscalas (CW1526C / PD5-VH / CT120) that these would work great in.
 

B2's are crossed at 600Hz, correct??
