My Dayton Audio towers build.

About a week ago I finished my Dayton Audio towers. I had a lot of fun building them and I made some pictures along the way. I used the DS135-8 5 inch woofers and the AMT Mini-8 air motion transformer tweeters. I'm very happy with the sound as especially because this is my first decent speaker build. I painted them gloss white to match my 12 inch ultimax subwoofer. I will attach the build plans for anyone who is interested. If you have any tips on how I could improve my next build, please share!

WinsIsd:


Sketchup model:


Crossover design:



Rounding over port:






Braces:






Parts arrived:






Crossovers all soldered:






Painting:


And they're done!



I'm really happy with the result especially the sound. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Looks great, I love the supreme sticker!

I think your center needs an upgrade!

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)

I'm going to butt in here on the TV front. i purchased a Visio E55 2 years ago and love it

Wally World has some 2018 models on closeout for $400. 4K HDR (E55 F1) full array back lighting. Not the best TV on the market but I love mine and I paid more for it. The fact that anybody can get a brand new 55" TV for $400 bucks that isn't total crap blows my mind. IMHO it's WAY better than total crap.

Also, nice speakers!

Looks great... for a fairly small space and centered main listening position, you might be better off with a phantom center (which is great for the budget too).
