Hi Marcus Here comes a short review from the building of the speakers and my impression of them
Review Satorique 3BE
I've long gone into plans to sometime build a couple of really good speakers. I like music, good sound and like to carpentry so in the end I decided to do it. After much thinking and googling online I finally found Intertecknik and their kits. I wanted a floor stand speaker and liked their model Satorique 3Be with the nice Berlylium tweeter as crown on the piece.
While waiting for the package to arrive, I had the drawing sent to me and bought the mdf home in the right dimensions and started the fun construction. The design itself was not so difficult to build but it was important to be careful with all mm to get it neat and it was used a number of test pieces to get to the exact sizes of the holes for the elements. I chose to saw the sides at 45 degrees at the top to get a nice transition and it turned out really well. The hardest part of the construction was probably to get to the bevel on the baffle so that it was smooth and equal on both speakers but after a bit of crafts it went well even thou some minor flaws had to be solved with a little putty.
There were some questions during construction but I got good help from Intertecknik to sort out all the concerns and in the end the construction was finished, damping and cabling in place. Before I went to paint them, I test-mounted all the elements because I was so curious about how they would sound. The first impression was pretty good but not yet outstanding. This changed after they got played in for hours and they opened up and they sound fantastic. It was hard to dismantle them again but they need to be painted and fine to so it was just to do. The work of putting, grinding and painting took its time when I had decided to use the high-gloss 2 component boat paint and it did not get any better by me making the mistake of using the wrong kind of roller that released fluff and I had to grind them down again and paint once more. The end result was really good, just as I imagined them in white high gloss.
I have now had the speakers ready and played on them for a few months and I'm really happy with both them and the support I got from Intertecknik during construction and can highly recommend them as a supplier. I learned a lot during the construction and itches already in my fingers to possibly build something new....
