Yes! Coming from someone new to DIY and the Econowave concept in particular, I found it incredibly difficult to navigate what the options were. In fact, I started a spreadsheet just on Econowaves to be able to keep the info summarized and at hand for myself. There were some meta posts that linked to many of the designs, which was helpful. But not enough info like, "This is the higher sensitivity version at 94dB. This is the one intended for two channel fans without a sub. This is the upgraded compression driver version with a lower distortion woofer, taking the 'Econo' out of 'Econowave,'" etc.
I'd read through pages of posts to not find the sensitivity of a design. It wasn't readily apparent there were awesome people I could pay to send me a crossover.
Making it more quickly digestible for noobs would make the whole concept more accessible to more people, if that's a goal.
EDIT: I did like the screenshots of shopping lists at Parts Express.
I wonder if Parts Express offers some sort of web widget where a "Shopping List" can be displayed on other websites, and clicking on the list or items will take one directly to Parts Express to make buying easier. Like, "Click to buy this list." Makes it easier for people to buy and find the parts, and gives an easy on-ramp for Parts Express sales?
