The Hestia-forte is the 3rd incarnation of the Hestia series featured on AudioCircle. It is capable of producing near concert level SPL's and incorporates easy construction techniques. The new minimalist crossover coupled with efficient drivers allows the top section to be driven by an SET or small Tripath amp.

Thanks Poultry. Sometimes I think there is a fine line between fun and obsession, lol.

Good photo too.  Nice light and shading.  I guess you live somewhere warm?

Hi matevana and all Audio Circle members.
Nice work.
Is there anyay we can see a picture of the minimalist cross-over?
Will you have some kind of spikes on the bottom section?
How about the top section,
will it eventually have a matching color with the bottom section?

Hi Poultrygeist and all Audio Circle members.
When I will retire in 30 years from now or when I will be 95
I will go (BacK) North, Canada that is. :thumb:

Hi unit and all Audio Circle members.
Nice and huge set up.
May I ask what are the (Look like) little doors at the bottom of the enclosures?
Maybe a close up of it would help.

These are my Open Invit8tion project. LCY110 (Faceplate removed) Audax Aerogel mid (HM130Z0) and Peerless SLS woofers (830667)
Its a completely passive set up. I used the AR-SX serial xover between the mid/tweeter and a 12dB xover on the H-frames.

Hey Geist... how do these sound?  I've been buying vintage drivers and have a bunch waiting to be dropped into a beautifully constructed baffle like yours.   :D

Curious what you think of what looks like a Zenith/Magnavox 12in and likely matching horn tweets?!?

Thanks!

The Zenith alnico wide banders were pulled from an open back console. That usually means they'll work well in OB and they really do. I see these on ebay going for peanuts.  The Pioneer horn tweets are PE buyouts using just a single cap.

While beauty is only skin deep, ugly goes all the way to the bone. :lol:

Hi herby and all Audio Circle members.
Very nice and simple set up.
Is that a Transcendent OTL amplifier?
Did you buy it as a kit?
May you share with us what make and model of drivers
makes your nice looking speakers?
Thanks.
