new model... Argos
« on: 4 Aug 2012, 11:09 pm »
here a couple of pics of the new Argos from the finish room. the Argos is based on the DA-1.1, it is 1.75" taller to accommodate the mass of maple built into the base of the cabinet ( like what I did with the Athena), it also has a 5/8" solid ash back laminated onto the Baltic Birch for an aprox. 1 3/8" think back same as the Ulysses.
the big change here is the sculpted baffle for improved imaging. 

thanks,
lou

Hi Lou,

Will this speaker have the offset tweeters like the 1.1?

I can't wait to hear these. The imaging is very good with the DA-1.1s, so with improved imaging it will be right there with the Ulysses, but with a wider sweet spot. :thumb:

Beautiful Lou.  Daedalus is on my bucket list.  Hopefully some day.

they will be $12,950 complete.
 includes AP crossover etc, grills and outriggers.
the maple is built into the base of the cabinet so the maple bases are unnecessary.

thanks,
lou
