The Satori Monitor

The Satori monitor is a custom design for a client who decided to cancel the order before the project was completed.  His loss can be your gain.  The monitor uses the top-of-the-line Satori 7.5" Egyptian papyrus cone woofer and matching 1" Satori ring dome tweeter in a 1.0 cubic foot cherry cabinet.  Useful bass response extends to 35 Hz, and the response above that point is +/- 1.5 dB to beyond 20 kHz.  The sound is exceptionally clean and powerful thanks to the low distortion of the Satori drivers and the precision 13-element crossover network.  The Satori monitors are available for $800/pr, which is less than the parts cost.  The cabinets are mint except for one very minor crease on the right side of one of the units.  The cabinets come with magnetic grills.  If you are interested in purchasing the Satori monitors or have questions, just send an e-mail to
