Hi Guys, this is my first post in the DIY speakers section. I have been reading articles for a few months, and would like to construct my first set of fronts. I am thinking about a set of sealed mains, like the SEOS Deltalite 12's, and a center like the SEOS Dayton DS4. I have (at least) two questions.
1) has anyone build the Dayton DS4 center in a long, wide cabinet, with the mid-woofers arrayed to both sides of the waveguide? This would result in a CC that I could more easily locate below the TV (mitusbishi WD-82742). Would I be giving up any significant performance by squishing the cabinet down like that, as long as I maintained the appropriate volume? If anyone has done this, I would love to see the material layout used.
2) Are the Deltalite 12's a good match for the DS4 Center? I see one used a Denovo 350 compression driver, and the other uses a 360. Are they close enough to provide good voicing similarity?
At this point, I can bend a bit more on cost in order to get a better end result, and/or easier construction. In spite of this I would not hesitate to build my own CC cabinet if the low/long configuration looks viable.
