Hi All,

I have been out of the DIY speaker seen for a while. In 2006, I built a pair of Dayton RS Tower TMWW....very nice speakers that I am very happy with. I am now building a dedicated HT in our new house. It will be about 26' x 17' x 9' with a sound treatments. I will have a large scope AT screen that they front speakers will be behind...I will also be suplimenting these with a pair of 21" subs. I would like all 3 front speakers to be the same, however, I am not sure which design they should be. I am looking at either the Dayton RS WMTW center or another set of Dayton RS tower TMWW. Which design is better for front 3 in an HT for mostly movies? Since I have been out of the DIY scene for a while, if there are better designs out there now, I am open to recommendations.

Thanks for the help!

For a dedicated ht you should go with 3 vertical speakers if possible. Check out the SEOS projects at, and 3pi.

I agree the Seos projects look promising. The 4pi plans are free for the asking from the designer.
