Lowther single driver speakers.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I did some research on speakers and came across these fine babies. According to many they are the ultimate speaker... And at less than $2000 per pair it sounds like a really good idea. anyone heard these for themselves?? I am interested in them ebcause they are basically really big headphones, they are only single driver speakers so they avoid many problems inherent in other speaker designs. Most importantly it seems they become naturally coherent across the frequency range. I know they are a little lacking in bass but a audiophile sub-woofer could probably be added to fix that pretty well. Too bad they don't seem to be able to generate a signifigant amount of bass because adding a subwoofer would damage the coherent nature of the speakers. Let me know if any of you know anything abou tthese speakers from firsthand experience!

Yes, Lowthers are great. I am glad I got a pair. My cabs go down to 50 cycles and that is fine with me. You can get subs to integrate with them if you want to go lower. A good source to research and do searches on these is at http://www.bd-design.nl/wwwboard/ Also you can get a pair for way less than $2000. Check out www.lowther-america.com

thanks timoteus for the links and input. I was wondering which amp you have chosen to drive your lowthers?? I was considering the si2a3 from moth audio.

amp

Right now I am using a Dynaco ST70 which just barely cuts it. With Lowthers you need a high quality amp or they will let you know it. If I had the money I would buy some Wright Sound 3.5, found at www.wright-sound.com but to save money I will probably build a kit from www.bottlehead.com I will probably limp along with the Dyna for a while because I am dying for some Senns and a Corda! Take a look at my speakers at www.homestead.com/sparkgap/DIYHedlunds.html Good Luck.

The wright sound 3.5 looks like a nice amp... The review of it on lowther-america by David Robinson seems fairly encouraging. I am still however interested in Moth audio's si2a3 amp which recieved excellent ratings in sterophile magazine. I think it was rated class B. Not bad for an amp costing around $1,500. Also it has an incredible classic look to it. Like something form Jules Verne or HG wells!! Thanks for the advice timoteus.
