Caintuck Audio Open Baffle Loudspeakers


Based on interest from music lovers who have visited my home listening room, as well as a
 very favorable response from attendees of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Decware Zen Fests and the 2015
Capital Audio Fest ..... I am now offering my custom built open baffle loudspeakers to the public.

Available are several versions of the low profile "barrel" and "tombstone" shaped speakers

The standard dimensions of the speakers are 22 1/2" high and 18" wide - the base is rear mounted and 12" deep

They are light in weight with rear mounted handles, making them easy to move when not in use


Standard construction is 3/4" red oak plywood in various finishes
Several cabinet grade exotic plywood finishes are also available
Solid hardwood baffles are available in limited quantities


The speakers are extremely efficient with minimal or no crossover components - minimum 
92.4 DB efficiency

They can be powered with any high quality stereo amplifier of 2 watts per channel or greater



The low profile of the baffles allows the speakers to pull a wonderful "disappearing act"
producing a holographic sound stage
that "floats" above the baffles ..... extending into the
listening room, behind the front wall and past the side walls



Prices starting at $ 350.00 per pair for finished speakers



Speakers currently in stock and ready to ship

Flat Pack Baffles

Flat pack baffles and bases (stained or unfinished) are available for customers who wish to
purchase their own drivers and crossover components. These will be marketed to music lovers
who do not have the woodworking tools to build their own baffles and would like to
have something other than a "typical" square or rectangular design.



Flat pack unfinished baffles starting at $ 125.00 per pair plus shipping
