Celestion Ditton 66
Not satisfied with those reviews? All reviews reflect the extraordinary quality and reliability of these speakers! Although I would do sr the same choice, without a shadow of a hsitation! For hifistes, audiophiles, they are connected to a receiver prampli Yamaha AX which dlivre Watts continuous or RMS is as desired.
I doubt you will find a nicer pair of these. Hi Guys Slight change of track here This proved to be true with this speaker.
The differences between the two will be between 40 – Hz, where the 66s may be a little bit more solid in delivery, but not quite as fast or detailed. Low performance, power with low impedance low frequency a check Sep 6, at 3: Our members also liked: These use a total cap value of 24uf so 1 crossover is correct.
My own diy cabinets use constrained layer damping to give a rigid but well damped cabinet. A good re-wiring and re-screening at a good professional House of paris HP and forgotten the sound of yesteryear, the difference is amazing! It contains a high pass for the tweeter and a lowpass for the mid. Any other considerations I should bear in mind, given their age? Tweeter and mid network. Did you find this review helpful?
That maybe the case now but when i had the ’66’ i live in a house with one def neighbour, hence loudness wasnt an issue. Hmmm the plot thickens!
Of the 66 mk1 agree yield low 86dB if I remember correctly. Throughout the years they have lost their superiority and have been matched and, finally, surpassed by other products in the small hi-fi world.
Don’t get me wrong, I can still quite enjoy small-ish loudspeakers, as long as they’ve been voiced to sound musical, and not falsely ‘hi-fi’.
Everything is bland and flat when he heard the sound of Celestion Ditton 66 Series II.
They will remain a legend! Our first step was to test the existing crossover with the new baffle and drivers. Now they are part of my heritage familliale a very good quality and reliability!
We found the amount of fill in the original to be inadequate. I listened to these speakers for more than 20 years, from to The medium rather sublime voice, made a piano, oboe. Yup, they defo have different types of musical presentation, and I can understand why you’d prefer the 33s. Post a Comment All comments are moderated.

It’s bugger all to do with size of the enclosure, but everything to do with the loading of the driver in it’s respective enclosure size. Moving on to the woofer, we can see that the existing crossover is asking a great deal of the dome mid.
I know it’s an old design, but If this speaker was made today, I reckon it would still sell well probably cost a fortune though. We wanted to raise the crossover point as we knew it would benefit the dome and the woofer would allow it. The top end of the dome has a hump centred around 5k – this is critical because the intended crossover is here.
Might make them less likely to be pushed over. I would respect the foundations of their endeavours. The tweeter gets pretty high with ease and without being irritating.

May 25, Celestion Ditton 66 mod. Request a new review.
I agree with what you’re saying, but I also think much depends on the room they’re being used in and the amp that’s driving them.
