Help me choose my next project

A couple of months ago I borrowed a table saw from a neighbor and proceeded to start my first diy speaker build (overnight sensations). I learned several things in the proceeding weeks. Most predominantly my wood working skills leave a lot to be desired and building speakers is much more rewarding than getting a box in the mail.

In the past couple weeks my loving wife purchased me a table saw of my own and I am proceeding with a couple of honeydo projects which is helping me learn more about wood working.

In the next 6 months I am looking to start another speaker build this time to replace my current LCR. I really like my current LCR setup (psb alpha c1 & t1) the only problem I have with them is that they are rear ported. The layout of my basement is such that my L and R speakers are placed in corners which makes them a bit boomy at times so what ever i build will be front ported.


My criteria is as follows:
1. Must work well in a corner setup
2. Around 12" or less in width (sorry no f15)
3. They need to sound crisp and clean
4. Price I would like to be under $300 a piece but that is flexible this will be a furture project so there will be time to save.
5. Needs center channel that can be rotated horizontally

So far I think the best match is a diysg 893.

The room is 28x15x7.
The MLP is 15' from the front stage.
I am currently using a Marantz SR5007 to power all speaker.
These will be used in conjunction with an svs sb1000.

I am sure any of the kits at DIYSG.will sound good. I cannot comment one way or another on the 893 but having built a trio of Volt lx6's I am completely blown away. Prior to the Volts I had Klipsch RP-160M,s and a RP-250C and these were my mains. After debating and asking too many questions I went ahead and built them there is no comparison I really wish I would have never bought the Klipsch they sound that much better. All I can say no matter what you decide to get from DIYSG it will sound great!!
