Did somebody ever tried new cabinets for commercial Polk Audio Speakers?
People when I first heard about DIY speakers a few months ago I felt pretty excited and at the same time overwhelmed about all the existing resources like software, online calculators, plans, drivers, forums and amazing pictures from existing projects. At first I had this really great deep feeling about doing my own project that I started to ask questions a lot in forums and started to read online documentation to please it. After all those answered questions and articles that I read online I started to realize that maybe I should leave my own design for after I'm more experienced. The amount of effort, knowledge and money required for my own project will be so tremendously big that simply it'll be too much for me right now.
However I have this great urge to use tools and cut wood that isn't leaving me alone right now and I think a lot about a lot of things to please the urge a little. One of the things that I started to think about is that the speakers I have sound good for the money but they don't look so great compared to more expensive ones and some DIY projects and that didn't leave me so pleased. I don't have the budget for new speakers right now so I started to think that since I already have a speaker system available maybe I should build some nice new tower cabinets for them instead than spending money in new speakers or a whole DIY project. That way I have like a middle point project, half DIY and half commercial. That way I don't have to spend money in new drivers and crossovers and I can please the urge to cut wood at the same time and get some nicer tower cabinets out of it. If something goes wrong, I can always put the drivers back in the old cabinets.
I need help for this because I don't have the drivers specs so I can calculate the size of the new cabinets. I was hoping that some members have that info or know where to get it. The speakers I have are the Polk Audio Monitor 40 Series II speakers. The Monitor 50 are the tower version of that speaker and their dimensions can be a starting point for my cabinets but I don't have the details about the internal shape and bracing so I don't know how to apply that dimensions to my own cabinets and I need help with that as well.
I really hope somebody can help me with this project.
