Betsy-K Drivers with SET Amp

I will be building a pair of Quarter Wave cabinets using the Betsy-K drivers (95 dB) and powering them with my Mini Torii. Will report back on how they sound. Comparison are my B&W 601 S3's (89 dB)

Ron,

it'll be interesting to hear your results. Take some photos as you progress.

Will do for sure, the design fits on two 4x8 sheets of Birch 3/4" plywood. Depending on the sonics I may put a BSC in the design to help tame the highs. Pictures and plans for the whole setup to follow. I am waiting on the Betsy-K's to be in-stock. If I get very impatient I may get some DFR-8's

I might opt for the Tang Band W8-1772 drivers, both very nice. Betsy-K's are obviously much cheaper, but they have an 8 week lead time...

Hi Ron,
I've been trying Betsy-K's in an open baffle arrangement since last April 2012.  I later added subwoofer (Deltalite  2515) and a super tweeter.  I'm getting around 96dB sensitivity with this arrangement and run a variety of amps through it.  My ZKIT 1 has never sounded better through it compared to my other, less efficient speakers.  Good luck with your project!

Thanks! I am absolutely loving my Mini Torii, I have since replaced the JJ's that came with it with NOS tubes and that has helped quite a bit.

Betsy-K's are back ordered for now, so just spending the time listening to some great music!
