Both will be mounted from the rear of the baffle, I will ise the tweeter without it's original faceplate...
Here are some pics.
(The design is inspired by the PreSonus Eris)
Slabs of mdf cut to size
cutting tweeter hole
cutting mid hole
fitting the nd140
roundover with router (speaker drivers mounted from inside)
I also rounded the sides only, like it ?
They look nice! Did you design the crossover yourself? Where did you cross that woofer & tweeter? Are you concerned about the possibility that by mounting the drivers behind the baffle, you might be messing with the frequency response due to the sound waves defracting off the front baffle in that configuration?
no xover yet, I will just get the assembled ones from PE. all these drivers are 8 ohms.
not concerned about any defraction, if there will be, I will deal with that no turning back at this point... hehe
here's a similar speaker sold on PE with the same mounting method...
If you are going to all of the effort & expense of building these nice looking speakers, then I would highly recommend that you take the time to measure, and build the proper crossovers for these drivers in this cabinet. You will never get them to sound good with an off the shelf crossover. That's just not how to do this sort of thing.
I cannot disagree, a custom made crossover would sound best.
From reviews from previous buyers, this is highly rated for it's price.
I got the drivers going into these cabs for under $20 each...
I could not justify getting a crossover 2x or 3x the price of the drivers.
Just hoping the reviewers are not all wrong about this.
However, if down the road I am not satisfied with the sound, the crossover will be the first to go.
Given the above driver-models, do you have any recommendations for crossover point, slopes, components, etc... ?
If I know what to get, I know what this will cost me down the road.
I am no pro in this field, I can use any help I can get.
Thanks for your feedback ! :-)
Little PC speakers next time you could use 5/8" MDF and just glue. No filling needed. I would stick to designs out their. Can get good ones for cheap for that size. Little to no chance that throwing parts together will sound any better then 20 buck PC speakers at best buy.
we use nails just for the wood to dry, we don't have or use clamps. Drivers were bought very inexpensive from PE, so why not... 😁
