cobbled towers into ceiling or store bought?

new house with no room for our old technics SB-A52 tower speakers so i'm going to need to put my front left/right in the ceiling. I've though of tearing into these towers and using one of the 12" woofers plus the mid and tweeter to make custom units in the ceiling, angling the speakers towards me. Any thoughts on, if done right, i'd get better sound from doing this or should i just go buy some units made for this purpose, such as some with the angled 8" woofer and adjustable tweeter you can get off amazon?

Did you forget to post this on April first?

Why would you want to do something like that? What is your purpose, music?

If it's done right it might work...but it might not. If you're planning to give away or throw away the speakers, might as well experiment with them instead.

I think trying to cobble something together is a bad idea particularly if you aren't familiar with DIY speaker builds. Do some research and buy some.
