Great stuff, Decibel, and congratulations. Now to get some presence in Gauteng, even if it's just a representative or a client where prospective buyers can audition.

Thank you guys!

I am also currently working on finishing the Cine Series Range, which will when complete consist of the following items:

- CF552-kit Floor Stander
- CC552-kit Center Channel (already available via the website)
- CM551-kit Stand mount / Bookshelf (coming soon)
- DIY speaker grills for all of the above
- DIY plinth with spikes for the floor stander
- DIY speaker stands (one and two column)

- Also considering a subwoofer kit to suit the range in the future, but will ultimately depend on the viability if importing parts for these.

Will post info on all of these as they become available.

Read the AVSA magazine review of the CF552-kit floor stander in the September 2010 issue. Please visit www.decibelaudio.co.za for more info.

I have just released the CM551 Bookshelf Speaker Kit. Check it out here: http://www.decibelaudio.co.za/CM551_kit.html
The combination of drivers in this kit is very good quality, and the kit is of great entry level value. The crossover has come together nicely, and I am rather pleased with the outcome of this bookshelf speaker.

The CC552 Center Channel Kit is also available now, and completes the Cine Series range. http://www.decibelaudio.co.za/CC552_kit.html

As said before, a subwoofer kit is being considered, but will depend on the demand for such a product. Any thoughts on this?

Well done on your venture, wishing you best of luck. I would add a "BUY NOW" button with a link to the page where you have them on offer on the Bid or Buy website, strike while the iron is hot and all that.

Also, I don't see any details on the power requirements for your speakers. It will be nice to know if they're power hungry or easy to drive.

Is there a third party review on your speakers?

Is this still going? I'm interested in a floor standing dual or tripple driver assembly that I could put together as my first venture into "home made" audio.

I am also interested in a better quality kit (Your proposed "Grande" series might do it). I was thinking along the lines of a very good Seas Tweeter, Midrange and 10" woofer with well designed cross over. Seas H1209 woofer - R2 446, H1262 - R837 Midrange and H882 tweeter - R455. Your ideas on such a kit and pricing would be interesting. I think the crossover design is very important with such a kit.

Hi, I have not been on the forum for some time, so please forgive my late response to some of your posts.

After some consideration and feeling out of the local market for DIY speaker kits, it is evident that our market is somewhat small to provide a sustainable DIY speaker kit product line. For this reason I have decided to rather tackle different market segments and have pulled the kits from my product lineup for now.

There are numerous well documented DIY projects that will suit almost every need to be found on the web, and companies such as Madisound, to name but one, provide excellent kits that can be imported and built with relative ease and will provide results that will outperform higher priced finished products available commercially.

Decibel Audio is now more focussed on developing finished products that will be available at retailers. One such product is a new iPod wall mounted powered speaker available at Digicape in Tyger Valley. Follow this link to view: http://www.decibelaudio.co.za/soundframe_i2000m.html

The plan is to eventually also offer finished loudspeakers available for retail, so most of the kits that I have developed until now will hopefully be finding their way onto shop floors in the near future, with some new designs in development.

Whoo Decibel. That really looks awesome. Brilliant idea, but how would that sound, with the TV right in front of it.

Looks very good though.

The site in post 1 says:

Down for some maintenance. Please send an email to...

Is this venture still up and running?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but it is a sticky thread.  :whistler:

So I guess this thread has died a horrible death? The website says forbidden when I try access it?

It is long ago that it stopped.
I think this needs to be locked.
