CSS Audio 2TD-X Towers Review and DIY Build


CSS 2TD-X Tower Speaker Kit

Price:US$1874 (Nov,2021)

Overall Rating: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ¾


Pros: Great DIY Kit, Quality Components.

Cons: Subpar Terminal Cup.


Impressively designed two ways 2TD-X Towers can handle two channel or HT with dynamic engaging sound at any level of loudness, low level listening sound quality is very impressive and deep, one of the best among industry leaders in $3-4K price range.



I just want slightly more Instrument separation to make them five stars but still these are one of my favorite, If you can DIY, 2TD-X will bring countless hours of high quality music to your discerning ears, Highly Recommended!
