Adelphos Bare Bones Speaker Kit, by Jeff Bagby
Adelphos – the “Brother” of the Kairos. It uses the same components as the Kairos but is optimized for a standard, flat baffle. If you found the Kairos slanted baffle design difficult to build or unattractive, then the Adelphos version is just for you. This would be one of our Premium speaker kits.
The network has been optimized for the flat baffle and though not as transient perfect as the Kairos, it is still an exceptional system
This kit features the Satori line of drives from SB Acoustics – the 6″ Papyrus cone woofer and low distortion, ring dome tweeter. This design features premium crossover components as standard. The current offering uses the Clarity, CSA capacitors throughout. The standard inductors which Jeff used in voicing the design are steel laminate and air core. Resistors included are Lynk and twisted Sisters
The upgrade option includes the perfect layer, Litz wire inductors, and premium Mundorf Supreme capacitors. Please note the photo is only on one side of the kit pair.
This updated kit version shows the “all black” tweeter. This is a fairly new addition and has been a popular choice, so we show it in the photo. The is also a newer, “White” cone version of the woofer. We offer it as an option too. We find that those who like the look of the Fostex drivers prefer the White cone.
Please note the photo is only on one side of the kit pair.

- 2 x Satori, TW29R tweeters – The Silver version is also available
- 2 x Satori, MW16P, Papyrus Woofers – The white cone version is also available

This is the original Kairos thread and has mention of the Adelphos version.
