“Dear Dr Brenner,
…by the way, and as Mr Linkwitz predicts, the LXmini (with PowerBox) has become the reference by which we judge other components, and recordings as well. Thanks again. James S., USA”
The LXmini® is a 2-way loudspeaker. The speakers frequency range extends from 45 Hz to 20 kHz. The horizontal and vertical off-axis frequency response, which is heard via the room, is spectrally neutral. Thus, listening off-axis merely changes the viewing angle to the phantom acoustic scene rendered by the seemingly absent loudspeakers.
LXmini® is a Do-It -Yourself kit . If you prefer a turnkey system, check LXsirius or a complete LXsirius system, including a PowerBox (all crossover electronics and multichannel amplification in a slim case).
Our DIY kits differ from the original LXmini® construction plans in some details.
- hidden cabling
- 1-click Neutrik speakON® connectors eliminate cabling errors
- HDF (dark anthracite color) replaces MDF. HDF is more dense, harder and heavier than MDF. This avoids fringing of edges.
- Precision CNC-mitered HDF baseplates allow main tube mounting without end-caps
- upper tube mounting without visible screws
- Mounting of fullrange driver without screws / holes
The DIY-kit contains
- 4 original SEAS drivers (if selected)
- CNCed HDF parts in (high density wooden material, without the downsides of MDF like soaking edges, etc).
- Screwless fullrange driver mount, no visible screws on upper tube (screws crossed out red in picture)
- Capless lower tube mount
- Screwless upper tube support
- 2 speakON® 4-way plugs “1-click”
- 2 Upper Tubes, raw white, import, precision cut
- 2 Lower Tube raw white import, precision cut
- Screw Set upper tube
- 2 new fullrange screwless mounting rings,
- 2 Rubber Coupler (import)
- 5 m cable 2x 1,5mm²
- 2 packs Damp Wool Monacor MDM2, including material for 2 Strips MDM2 Damp Wool for Upper Tubes
Kit does not contain: Linkwitzlab LXmini® plans/license, Glue, Paint, Cables to the amplifier/PowerBox, crossover/amplifier only when selected (ASP/PowerBox), tools
Altough MiniDSP as crossover is an economic start point, you may consider an easy upgrade in sound quality: With a PowerBox 6pro NCore precision analog or with a Nelson Pass ASP DIY-kit.
Furthermore, PowerBox 6pro NCore precision analog and Nelson Pass ASP DIY-kit are prepared to add subwoofers
- LXsub2 for LXmini+2 or
- LXsub4 for LXstudio
Your music source (e.g. CD-player, turntable, network-player) feeds a PowerBox6 pro NCore via standard interconnect cables….all signal processing and amplification will be inside the PowerBox….Easily connect your LXmini® speakers by 1-click speakON® fitted cables.
LINKWITZ kits require the ownership of the respective Linkwitzlab construction plan/license before shipping. Just add it to your basket. If you already own the license, please forward the purchase email, that shows your ownership to plans@magicLX521.com
