DIY SEOS 1099 Build
I want to thank everyone for posting their DIY builds Just a little history.... I just wanted to tell everyone how my build goes, hopefully to inspire more folks to stop wasting money on mass produced sound. This is my 3rd DIY speaker, but my first with a crossover. I have built 2 DIY subs using RE XXX Driver and they DESTROY any of my previous subs. I have an 18" sealed and a 15" ported, both in home made enclosures. The 18" is in a sealed box and the 15" is slot ported. I love it, before the build I was running a Velodyne HGS 15 and 2 12" infinity subs. I am powering the subs with an iNuke6000 and they blow away anything else I have ever seen. I have a hard room to balance for HT. It is 30x24 with 8' ceilings, however both ends are open to the kitchen/entry way. The RE XXX subs work awesome! I realize others have better HT systems, but this is what I made withing my budget, and it is better than the local cinema! I was lacking a little in the "woofer" range, but otherwise I have been very happy. I have 2 JBL old school towers as my "front wide" channel, 2 B&W CDM SE mains, 2 B&W rears and 2 Definitive wide side channels. I am running a big AV123 center currently with the Ninja upgrade kit. I have burnt a cap in this unit twice running an Emotiva amp on my front LCR.
After much reading I decided to try the "Elusive 1099" from DIYSoundGroup as my new Center channels. I was impressed with the quick responses from Erich. I bought the 1099, the flat pack and the crossover kit.
The pieces were all packaged great and arrived safely. The initial fit was great.
This is my first attempt at a crossover, so I welcome any constructive criticism. I will update as the project progresses....
