You are a spaz. I'm disappointed that you compare my center channel speaker to a Bose 901. They're different like night and day. My design is influenced by CX-17 & 27, an Audax center channel DIY project, and a large Paradigm center speaker that has similar dimensions to my creation. The damping was modeled after the Audax project, and the extra stuffing was placed at areas that I tested to provide the best sound. I'm proud of my design, and wanted to share with everyone one possible way to make a great DCM-like speaker. My cabinet dimensions were dictated somewhat by the size of the base of my TV, so obviously there's room to play with the dimensions.
For information about other great DCM speaker projects, view this entire thread. If I'm not mistaken, some very knowledgeable people have mentioned that you might not get the results you expect with a TW or TF for a center speaker. Many people use a CX-17 as a center speaker, and center channel projects based upon this speaker design seem to work well. I'd definitely be interested in seeing other designs too!
By the way, Penny supplied me with the driver parameters that allowed me to properly use the speaker design software. It's a 6KB1448, and it's shown as either 6" or 6.5", depending upon the speaker model. Same size. Same exact speaker. All will fit well into the opening in the SS center speaker, and a CX-17 (or equivalent) also has the proper tweeter mounted on a metal lens. I don't know of a KX that had that ...
Good luck with your project!
