The X-over frequency is 2.4KHzIn Indonesian Eka means the first child. Representing the first kit of this very new company. a simple design, easily modified to your personal likeingBass reflex speaker designed for off-axis listening (i.e. not to be toed in – certainly not more than 10 degrees). This was done to create a larger uniform listening area and to make the cross-over network simpler. Bass reflex was chosen to minimize cone movement in the resonant frequency area (though cone movement will be larger at very low frequencies). It also makes the design more versatile – should anyone prefer a closed box, it is easy to seal the port tube. The use of bi-wiring terminals makes it possible to use an external cross-over, which makes cross-over experiments much easier. The tweeter is offset to reduce diffration problems. Internal bracing is used to reduce cabinet wall vibrations. It is recommended to place this speaker on a stand not too close to the rear wall. The distance from the floor to the centre of the tweeter should be about three feet. Possible modifications: Cross-over, damping material, and port tuning. It is recommended to place this speaker on a stand not too close to the rear wall.

    :

    I initially had reservations about this kit as i could see that it was one of the least expensive kits that Solen offered. Then, i got onto one of the diy forums, and this kit got shredded in one of its threads. However, upon looking more closely at the critisisms i noticed they were being made by persons who had not built the kit. i decided to put the opinions of these armchair enthusiasts to the test. Wow, were they ever wrong. these speakers image better than any speaker that i have owned before-i have owned some great speakers including speakers made by Snell. Another fine attribute is the ability of the Ekas to deliver detail without sounding bright. There is a sense of relaxation to the high frequencies, yet the high frequencies are not rolled off. Today, after making some final adjustments to the port length, i am pleased with the bass response. To wrap this up i would like to add that the people at Solen were very helpful and responded quickly to my questions-they were a big help.
