Sbs Home Audio Hifi Division

I just started a custom home hifi division, building custom SBS systems for homes (these are not designed for DJ Playback it is for 2 ch audio HIFI Playback).

The home system i am presently buiding for a client in NYC will be Outfited with SBS TAD Loaded Subbass Cabinets utilizing 2 TL 1801s(1 per cabinet), Thrive Audio Nyla amps for subbass driving the TAD TL 1801s, 1 Thrive Audio Alva amp driving 2 TAD ET 703 tweeters, the ET 703s are good to 45K, Krell KAV 1500 amp for now on the clients custom home midrange speakers, & Krell HTS 7.1 preamp and custom built electronic xovers.

This system will be done in 2 stages, the next stage will be 3 way SBS Cabinets with TAD 1601A divers, 2 TAD TD 4002 Compresion drivers that will be driven by a Thrive Audio Syla, and the TAD tweeter will then Mount in these new 3 way cabinets.The TAD 1601A wil be then driven by the Krell KAV 1500

I've noticed you've been installing a lot of Krell amps lately, what made you choose those amps for your installations?

1956 forbidden planet. Wow, that's when Leslie Neilson was a real actor and not a comedian.

still kinda industrial looking for most folk's home Hi-Fi IMHO....

maybe a nice burled (or other neat looking) wood veneer job
is in order for this line?


i'm just saying that WAF isn't really high for somewhat large black boxes normally...

it's fine by me.... just seems kinda industrial looking...

i'm just saying that generally, most folks like a more 'furniture' type look in their living rooms....

but as you so eloquently pointed out, each client is different, and i am glad your client is happy!

so, what exactly differentiates a home audio system from a commercial/prosound playback system?

the 1st stage yesterday here are some pics. I will be starting on the top boxes soon for my client and they will be designed with the same footprint of the bottom cabinets so it will be uniform, we are deciding if we will do a dbl 15 or single 15 top box at the moment, again in blk as the client requested.

In the last pic he has plants infront of the cabinet to the rt, which is moved when he listens to music, the wife likes them there when he is not listening to the system lol. More pics of this install can be seen on my, myspacepage along with other SBS projects.

My client built a temp amp rack untill we decide what he wants perminently

i only have one question and that is why would your client want trapezoidal cabinets? is he planning on arraying multiple cabinets side by side? aside from that i cant see the purpose of trapezoidal cabinets in a home system if there is just the one set.

great looking work aside from that and im sure it sounds divine

Ha ha ha!!!! Oompa loompas? ... yeah, we're short (me 5'7" and the wife 5'2"), but the TV is actually 4 feet off the ground and is at the perfect height when on a sofa from 14 feet away. The system is UNREAL. I can't wait for SBS to do the tops. I grew up with a hard-core audiophile (my Dad), and have listened to Audio Research, Krell, Levenson, McIntosh, among other amps. I have listened to electrostatic speakers from Magnepan, and box designs from B&W, Infinity IRS, Wilson Audio and Aerial Acoustics. Nothing beats the full-range presence of TAD in SBS-designed boxes with quality amplification. The system is big, but it sounds bigger ... It's basic physics, after all. If you want a full sound, you need big drivers to move the air. Can't wait for the full-range boxes! - Sanjay
