I am looking to do my first DIY speaker. Done subs, but want to try a nice pair of speakers now to use in 2 channel for mostly music, maybe 12-18" tall, so its easy to sit on desk at work.
I have access to a CNC mill, which means I can whip up some pretty cool stuff easily, so I am thinking of doing an open baffle design, so I can cut something out of sheet metal easily.
I would like to do it all with some speakers from partsexpress, madisound, or similar, and not be too expensive.
Does anyone know any existing projects for open baffle speakers?
I would also consider mixing open baffle with a closed section, since I know open baffle you sacrafice a lot of low end. Maybe put one of those 5" or 6.5" tang bands in it. I am not really sure how to design a speaker, so any help anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
