I am just getting into DIY speaker building, because I like both the technical and aesthetic aspects of the hobby. I know that some do it to save money, but I just want to build beautiful things that sound good. However, I don't have a frame of reference for how one DIY build would sound next to a commercial product.
I'm intrigued by this new design coming out. I've considered building Paul's Swope system, but the center channel is too big for my home theater built-in (the spot for the center barely holds a Polk Monitor CS1). However, the new MMTMM Overnight Sensations center channel would work because it's low and wide. I could set in on top of the TV shelf right in front of my Mits rear projection.
So I was thinking of building the Overnight Sensations MMTMM center, MTM fronts and the MTMT dipole surrounds. How would that compare to my current Polk Monitor series set-up: CS1 center, M40 left/right, M30 rear?
