I'll try to be short - lol
As my first full scale DIY project I've built myself a set of Tritrixes (TL left and right, ported center and surrounds).
The good part - I love the sound and I am glad that I've decided to go with "easier" design for my first project - I"ve learned so much in that time!
.. and the questionable part is - from one time "build and forget" deal it turned into hobby and now I cannot stop thinking about building next project - haha!!
I'v been reading about Econowave (waveguide) designs on this and other forums for quite some time now - and it looks really interesting and promising. I have a set of old Technics SB2660 speakers that I was thinking about "econowaving"
(I really like the looks of 12" white woofers}
Here's the part I'm not quite sure about.....
It'll cost me around $200 to upgrade this pair (<95db crossover, D220Ti-8 drivers and Pyle PH-612 waveguide)
If they'll sound as good or better that Tritrix - it'll go for it. (the low end should be better for sure).
... or maybe I just should save a bit more and go with Econowave Deluxe or Pi or Seos or something like that??
Oh yeah, and it's mostly for HT use. The room is 18x24 with vaulted ceiling and 2 big openings to the dining room and second floor. (not sure if it's considered a "big" room or not)
And here's some pictures of my Tritrix build
