Replacing Drivers Please Help!

Hello all,

I have an ancient enclosure that I want to re-use and replace the drivers in as the original ones are completely destroyed. It's a ported enclosure with a volume of about 1 cubic ft and has spaces for a 3" tweeter and an 8" woofer. I will be replacing the crossover with whatever I need.

What Driver suggestions do you have? How much should I look at spending if I want middle of the road performance?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Why do you want to reuse this "ancient" cab? Save yourself a ton of trouble and build a proven kit. The flat packs are cheap and easy to assemble. If you're worried about a good finish use duratex.

If you really want to try something new. Please search around and do some research to get an idea of what you're getting into. It's not impossible but it will be a long road.

A call to Parts express can help you with drivers for you cabinet. They have a staff which I have heard is very helpful with suggesting DIY projects and replacement speakers. Good luck.
