[QUOTE=lsinclair;3101106]I made some Gradient clones from plans I found on the Internet. You may not want to go down that route (athough it's pretty straightforward if you get someone to make a kit of parts for you - I did) but if you do I can probably find the plans.

Hi, they look great to me, Everything you can find about your subs including brand of drivers will be greatly appreciated. I have plenty of wood panels in my garage.

Best regards,

I recently had the chance to hear quad ESL 63s with an M J Acoustics Reference 400 sub. I think they sounded at least as good as with Gradients with the Gradient crossover.


I spoke to someone who works for a company which specialises in refurbishing quad electrostatics who concurred that top of the range modern subwoofers can be better than Gradients. He thought that the best solution may be a pair of good RELs, but I haven't heard how this works - I suspect these things are very room dependent.

It's time for a change if you feel your Quad ESL 63s need a Subwoofer?

I'm interested in it because I listen to organ music, organs mostly make sounds which the quads cope with very well, but often enough some really deep bass comes into play and the electrostatics are a bit disappointing for that. If anyone has a really good system for reproducing organ then I'd like to know.

I also listen to harpsichord music, and it's surprising how deep the overtones on a harpsichord note can go - I think more so than a piano.

And then there's the deep overtones of a bass viol, and even a cello in a modern string quartet, when it's well recorded, can go pretty low.
