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 through 2018 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, having no crossover components - minimum 
92.4 DB efficiency
The dipole configuration increases the perceived sensitivity allowing the speakers
to work extremely well with low powered amplification

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 $ 399.00 per pair for finished speakers
