From the designer: I kind of wanted to name the speaker series after the Honda S2000. It just reminds of them in the way that they are small and high-tech looking, and really open up when you push them hard. I’m enjoying these woofers. Even though they model similarly to several other woofers, for some reason they seem to dig deeper. They're going to sound amazing. Even as a bookshelf, I think people will be pretty surprised by the sound they put out. Although it's a 4 Ohm woofer, I honestly don't think most amps would have trouble driving the finished speaker.
We wanted to make a small speaker that most people could fit just about anywhere. We also wanted it to be a good step up from your typical budget style speaker without breaking the bank. The 4.5" cast frame woofer has a great overall look and the first thing you'll notice is the attention to detail put towards making this woofer. Once you listen to them you'll hear why Paul enjoyed desiging a speaker using these components.
Minimum order is 2 speakers: If you ordered one in the past and need one for a center, please contact me. Kits are sold as full kits, sorry no substitutions or subtractions. Don't forget binding posts, terminal cups, or speaker spikes if you need them because they can be shipped for free with any kit or flat pack purchase.
Shipping Note: Most speaker kits currently ship for free, but flat packs normally do not. We try to get your order packaged and shipped in 5-8 days depending on how many orders have come in. Please read the 'Frequently Asked Questions' section for more information.
The s2000 is better all around than the overnight sensations and rivals the speedsters. The wavecor tweeter is a winner and provides accurate and precise imaging. The CF woofer is strong and belts out warm, filling bass. Wider sweet spot than the speedster, though a little less airy on the highs.
Go for it, build the s2000 speakers. You’ll love them.
