Further information: The story

About 5 years ago, I bought a the bass units for these speakers from a Stereonet member for about $3300.  These are the original Wilsons in their crates. 

 

I then went on a mission to complete the set but the Tiny Tots were way beyond my budget.   I then searched and found 

 plans and specs, including the crossovers and drivers on the net . I was fortunate to find the Focal Tweeters and ScanSpeak Bass Mids NOS in Melbourne for about $1000 all up.  Then I found a cabinet maker in Melbourne who had been recommended by a Stereonet member and he built the Tots according to the specs and many internet images., including the grab handles which apparently were on the originals for ease of use in a studio. He recommended a spray painter who sprayed the speakers in a shiny black to match the bass units.

Next, Dr Sound built the crossovers,  using the very best components and I sourced the other hardware. 

 

These speakers weigh a ton.  And  even though I love lugging my speakers around, I cannot move them without help. 

 

Included are the 4 pieces, floor spikes, and I think I can find the grilles somewhere (no guarantee).  The Tots stand on the lip of the bass units and I used to adjust the angle with custom built wedges of three different degrees. (I suggest the same, but you have to make. source your own wedges)

 

Condition: Obviously these are used, so  don;t expect "mint"  - but they look and sound amazing. If you, like me, have often dreamt of a owning a massive world class speaker, these are just that.   For years, I used the Tots only and they are in my opinion, worth the asking price on their own.  (Check the specs, dimensions etc, on the net,)

 

Courier is  an option -- and is included in the price.

The top is DIY (pro) and the bottoms are WIlson

Hi just wanted to ask what the top diy enclosure is made of?  

 

Enclosure material makes a huge difference to the sound of a speaker and Wilson's enclosure materials are usually proprietary.  Online it says for the top unit of the 6 : "The series-6 WATT was constructed of a mineral-filled acrylic-based material that had been used for the WATT for 15 years. "For the series-7 WATT, Wilson Audio turned to its M material, a high-tech composite that's used in varying degrees in the cabinets of all other Wilson Audio speakers.

 

Regardless of the material you have used its a fantastic clone effort and I'm sure they sound wonderful.

      Well regarded Turn Table from European Audio Team, EAT C-SHARP (Currently selling for $6499)
       
      Separate Power supply and speed controller, does not come with cartridge.
       
      With Carbon Fibre and Termoplastic Elastomer, Eat was designing a new superflat table. The low profile base chassis is made out of highest density MDF. Because of its flatness this base sits perfectly stable on any surface! On this base the ultra low noise motor is mounted as well as 10 damping feets out of energy absorbing TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomers = Hightech high energy absorbing damping material). The cone shape TPE columns carry a SANDWICH sub-chassis out of Carbon Fibre and MDF composite with ultimate rigidity.
      The stiffness is important to be a super rigid base for the tonearm/cartridge and bearing/platter as there must be 100 % no moving tolerance between the distance of the groove and the tracking cartridge. All the rumble of the platter / bearing is directed in the TPE columns. On opposite the TPE avoid that any unwanted energy of motor and surface or surrounding vibration leads to the sub-chassis or even to the tonearm cartridge.
      The bearing is an oversized inverted with a inert, resonance free ceramic ball on top Around the bearing we set a super heavy 700g mass point which sucks up all energy around.The stiff carbon sub-chassis helps to transport all vibration in this mass point. So vibrations are transferred in heat The platter itself is from a special alloy of very inert aluminium and is also damped by TPE inserts-It from 2 parts a sub-platter and a main platter to keep it flat although having very high mass and kinetic energy.
      The belt is made from special anti-static rubber. It's glued and then polished.
      The tonearm itself is a completely new design which combines all advantages of a unipivot arm with a Cardan design. The uni-pivot in the middle only helps bearing to be less loaded. The traditional Cardan bearing insures high stability and easiness of use with very low friction. Also inside the tonearm is a special silicon-based grease to damp the tonearm / cartridge resonances by more then 50%
      The tube is again out of carbon , super stiff and rigid. The headshell we made out of special light and rigid aluminium to get a perfect combination of the advantages of carbon with the better inner damping of the aluminium as well as the possibility of more tighter mounting of Highend MC cartridges.
      An external DC power supply unit with an AC Generator creates new total clean power for the motors . You have also 33 /45 electronic switching.
