Introducing ‘Mercury’, the first speaker kit offered by NBSC. For our first kit, we wanted to keep things fun and simple. We have opted for a small bookshelf speaker with a simple but effective crossover network.
‘Mercury’ combines the subtlety and precision of simplicity with a wide sound stage and exceptional sonic transparency. The higher end could be described as detailed and organised while being unfussy in nature. The lower end provides agile and articulate bass while maintaining impressive dynamic punch. This full bodied and well-timed speaker provides a superb listening experience in all environments…
…is what we would say after snorting a bottle of our ‘Snake Oil’. Let’s try that again without all the wank.
‘Mercury’ is a fun little entry level speaker to build and listen to with a largely flat response from 77 hz right up to 20khz. This driver in a smaller box does result in a gradual 2db gain around 120hz which does give it a little more bass.
For a breakdown of what each kit offers, head to our 'Speaker Kit' page. For this kit, we highly recommend the MK2 version (especially for those with big fumbly hands!) as the access to the crossover board for mounting/installation can be a little tricky without the crossover access panel.
Let’s allow the specs and graphs to do most of the talking.
