Part of the problem is that finding an inexpensive 12" woofer that will do the job isn't easy. If anyone can find a $25 woofer that performs like the "budget" Eminence drivers ($85?) and somehow gets by on a simpler crossover then your low budget build will be a reality. PE's current pro 12" buyout drivers are ~$50 so that doesn't save much. Hmmmm...then there are the 15" buyouts...

It would be nice to see an "ewave" package with the SEOS components and a generic crossover (with adjustable L-pad) for those that want to experiment with vintage (or budget) woofers since about the only way to really save $ is to get a "free" woofer and cabinet. Of course those of us inclined to do this already ordered the SEOS 12 and DNA-360 and have been hacking away with the assistance of many of the fine folks here.

Erich any word on if you will get any DNA-150 cd's in?

I need some screw mount CD's still and the 150 is perfect. BUT if this is still not possible I will just look at using something else.

Any reason a pair of the Fusion-6 Vibe speakers wouldn't be good desktop computer speakers? Would raise the speakers so the tweeter is at ear level. Will be using them with a subwoofer.

CD and waveguide not ideal for near field IMO.

They are better for larger theater distances.

I'd reccomend one of the smoother dome tweet style builds. You want something to sound nice at low levels and close distances, the fusions are opposite of that.

I think Tux mentioned before the coaxial Volts would make great nearfields like computer speakers. Their even wide off-axis response should mean you can move chair anywhere or collaborate with another user at the desk.

The Hitmakers and Dunham's are supposed to be great kits for this application.

In general I agree. However I do own the Fusion Vibe and have used them in a medium size bedroom setting and also on my desk in my office. They work great in either setting and are on of my favorite sounding DIYSG speakers. They are small speakers for use wherever you would use small speakers IMO.

Thanks for all the replies. I will check out some other speakers without waveguides.
