I was in the market for some small 6.5" bookshelves...looking at a few of the popular under $500/pr
. recommendations from brands like KEF, Ascend, Chane, and others and I figured why not give DIY a shot. For home theater I'm completely happy with my Titan, Volts and Klipsch's, but I've never even owned a decent music-only speaker.
Music only...want a speaker that is accurate and flat
Enough speaker for a medium sized room
Will be powered by way less than 100w max per channel...nothing fancy
Not looking to spend any more than $300 for kit (can make my own enclosures separately if necessary)
Don't need full range because I will use a separate subwoofer for lows.
Was looking at bookshelves, but if a tower (or something in between) fits the bill that's fine, too. Again I can build enclosures myself so don't add that cost into the equation if it's not included in the kit.
One kit that stuck out when I was at DIYSG was the Overnight Sensation MTM. The only thing negative I read about it was the highs weren't quite detailed. I also have been considering another set of Volt-10's or try the Fusion 10's...but these are meant primarily for HT.
That's why I came here...to get opinions and experience with other kits.
