My old Mission 732's have died after many years of service. I was going to replace the drivers, but after speaking with Mission technical support this doesn't look likely. They have neither a replacement or recommended replacement woofer, nor do they have the T/S params of the original driver. Ah well.
Got me thinking that I should give building my own speaker a go. Obviously the TriTrix came up in my research, but it might be a bit too hardcore for me. I've never done any soldering before, nor have I assembled a cabinet. On the plus side, I would be able to do my own finish work. This means I'll be able to have a high gloss white finish to match my entertainment unit.
I was looking also at some of the other Dayton kits available with pre-assembled cabinets and completed crossovers. Like the UA721.
So my question is, what would you folks recommend? These speakers will be my main L/R speakers. Floor standing is preferred, but I do have an ugly pair of 16 inch stands that could be used. I have little experience with cabinet building and zero experience with the electronics (nor the tools). I'm looking for something easy to put together with a full range sound. I'm not wild on having a separate subwoofer.
Thanks in advance!!
