Thiel Owners


I just scored a sweet pair of CS 2.4SE loudspeakers. Anyone else currently or previously owned this model?
Owners of the CS 2.4 or CS 2.7 are free to chime in as well. Thiel are excellent w/ both tubed or solid-state gear!

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
Todd, I run the CA-301.  Running unbridged, it is plenty enough for a 3 Series as long as you don’t try to fill a stadium with it.  Mine only have to fill a 600 sq ft listening room, and they can go as loud as I can tolerate.  And then some more.

Thiels are more about quality than quantity anyway.  If I wanted my neighbors a quarter mile away to hear Sinatra, I’d be running horns.

I’m winding down at this point, so this will probably be my last high quality system heading into retirement.
There is no time compensation in those crossovers. The coincident alignment is achieved geometrically via the position of the coaxial midrange and tweeter.
Hi Tom,

Actually you have answered my question.  

The crossover info on the 2.7s could perhaps assist when I finally get my subs in action.
2 Vk55s in mono should work nicely I think. It's a great sounding amp.  One of my favorites for sure.  

I have only used the 4 ohm tap on the Ref 110.  
Ordered the rest of the parts to upgrade the CS-2.4 crossovers to (hopefully) perfection ;-)

2x the 0.72mH Jantzen Wax Coil, Copper foil Inductor 30mm width, 14AWG

4x the Jantzen Universal PCB, FR4, 140mm x 190mm

Jantzen Solder, 4% silver - 100g

4x the 100uF 100V Mundorf ECap AC RAW electrolytic capacitor

2x the 2R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

2x the 30R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

2x the 4R7 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor 

2x the 27R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

2x the 3R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

To make 4ohm and 16ohm resistors (can’t get them in Europe) I ordered the next following resitors,

2x the 4R7 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

4x the 27R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

2x the 39R 12W MRA12 Mills Resistor

27R + 4R7 in paralel make’s 4R

27R + 39R in paralel make’s  15R95 

Hifi Collective will pair them with higher measuring 27R and 39R resistors to get 16R resistors 

Because of the lead time for the coil’s it will take some time, keep you guys posted.
