diy towers for music*not a build thread*

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone
Welcome to my thread.

I'm looking for some cheap but quality speakers for music only in my basement. I currently have 2 12" 150 rms 300 max 4 ohm 23-250 Hz subs. I enjoy these subs. I'm wanting to build a full range speaker. I've been looking at the tritrix components. Would they sound good together? Im thinking a 30"x15"x8" transmission line cabinet for the tritrix and a 15"x15"x8" for the sub. A total box of 45"x15"x8". OR 36"x15"x8" TLC 13"X15"X11" sub. Total of 50"x15"x11". Or front firing 50"x15"x15". How I'd finish them is the secret.

Side firing or front firing sub?

Would a simpler 3 way sound better?

I'm open to other thoughts on drivers, speaker design, anything. I'm a noob (23y famly man) that loves music. There will be alot of questions.

My goals are cheap. Sound good at low volumes but still sound good cranked. I listen to all kinds of music. I have 30,000 songs in my iTunes. Around 200 CD's also. Rock country twang oldies surf under ground rap Irish folk/drinking some classical. I really have a very wide taste. Sometimes I plug my phone in for Pandora or the very rare netflix/youtube videos.

I haven't picked my amp /or receiver yet (see my other thread). All the units I'm looking at are around 50- 110w rms x2. With 4+ speaker terminals.

I'm thinking I'd like to drive the speakers off both channels. Kinda like bi-amping?

I'm a complete novice when it comes to DIY but this doesn't sound like a bad system:

My budget is 150 maybe 200 on components. The tritrix kit is 125. Audio quality vs price? Lets hear the thoughts

DIY is great and all, but at around $150/PR, you may want to keep an eye on the used market for some towers by jbl, infinity, psb, etc...

I see your budget, but the great thing about the tritrix deal is the MLTL flatpack tower. $150 budget is fine for components, but don't discount the time and effort to buy, cut and fit the wood.

Regardless, act fast. Special price ends 4/30 per my cart.

Have fun,
