Looking to build a pair of speakers for my small office (10'x10') that will be strictly for music. I'd like to do a curved cabinet stand mounted bookshelf or floorstanders. Looking for suggestions on proven/documented speaker and crossover designs.
Budget: ~ $400 for speaker components not including cabinet materials
- FR down to low 40's, unless I would be better off doing a matching sub or pair of subs as the base of the stands, which brings up the question of how I power them all and cross them over...
- Front ported or sealed, they will be placed close to a wall about 6' apart
- Curved cabinets - I have a decent amount of woodworking skills and tools, and would like to adapt a squared cabinet design maintaining the same volume. Just thought I'd mention since I will probably do a build log.
- Proven design - I would like to assemble my own crossovers which I think I can manage with some research, but want a design thats already done (first time around I'm not interested in measuring/experimenting much with the electronics, the curved cabinets will be enough of a challenge for now...). I'll keep the overall volume and baffle layout the same, and just modify for a curved side design.
Build's I like so far (want something similar from a size/aesthetic standpoint):RBR Curved Cabinet BuildModula MT Curved Build
I don't see where you can get either the Modula MT or RBR kits anymore, if these are still available somewhere the might just work?
Also off topic, but looking for source/amp suggestions (I might do something like an Emotiva 2-channel amp or something used?? I'll post separately in the right section if I don't get any suggestions here..). I guess it is kind of on topic as its related to the sensitivity of whatever speakers I end up building.
I've done a little browsing around but nothing stood out except those builds I linked, which I can't seem to find. Any suggestions appreciated!
