Just a tip, the tweeter should be mounted as close as possible to the midrange/midbass.

Most of mine:

The pair of desktop speakers I built for my brother, drivers are the 5" concave woofer and Nuance tweeter (Both PE buyouts).



A very inexpensive pair using the sony 5.25" and Nuance tweeter (More PE buyouts).



Some small bookshelfs using the Aura NS6 and a 3/4" softdome Neo buyout from a while back.



MTM with M&K buyout woofers and Dayton DC28.



Another 2-way bookshelf using a Bravox 6.5" buyout and Dayton DC28.



My LCR, built two of them with the Klipsch buyouts first then went to make a center and the klipsch's were sold out so I used some peerless buyouts that modeled very close in the same enclosure.
Selenium DH200E CD's (does ok but not the best) on the Dayton waveguide.




Folded Horn's with Dayton 8" DVC on left. On the right Dayton DCS380 in 8cuft tuned to 18hz under the white sub which is an ACI SV10 in a 2cuft 20hz tune.
next is the Bravox buyout sub 12ohm in the 38hz TH designed by Volvotreter. On the right is the pair of bass bins with 15" Alnico woofers made by H.H. Scott that I found at a Thrift store for $9.

They can really fill a room even without any sound.

Wow! how did you guess that? Unless you...........Are you spying on me?

I forgot to mention that all FOUR have a sprayed Duratex finish.
1/2" round over on all 4 sides, with a 1/4" round over in the back, and 1/8" on the face.
There is a 3/4" face that is recessed and a 1.5" baffle.

Make sure you post pictures when complete and in their new, native environment as well!

Congrats!

And which driver?

My 4TSE took me 7 months, so 8 months with the CC seems fast to me.

EHQS8, powered by a KLH plate amp if I remember correctly is rated at 200wats or something (don't quote me on that) due to their tuning only going to be 30Hz. Enclosure is 48H x 13.5w x 16D. Requires 4lbs of fill and it is going to be sealed.

Well just one pic of my Surrounds that I finished last night and installed. Not the best finish as I intended but it looks good enough. I used a design from the PE site but a different tweeter (used what I had, these were previously retrofitted on another enclosure).

I know how much i enjoy seeing what others have been up to in their spare time. So here is what ive been doing. The sub is a kit from creative sound, 2 passives and a 10 with a bash 300. The bookshelves are my own design with axiom drivers and a crossover i built myself. I have everything i need to measure with REW but too dang lazy to actually do it.This was all done for 5.1 and 2 channel listening with my vinyl so i threw together a stand so i could break out my turntable.

I've lurked here for years. So, here's my 1st post.

Nothing fancy. I built these about 6 years ago for my wife's Beomaster 1900. It is a set of Polk DB6750's (a component setup with 6 3/4" woofer and 92dB sensitivity). I wish I would have known a forum like this existed when I built these. I used an online program to help me with the box size and port length. A tech at Polk was kind enough to give me the details of the speaker I needed. IIRC, I turned the port to 40Hz.

After what I've read here, I'd likely have done a number of things differently. They do sound pretty good though.
