My final ever DIY Loudspeakers. A Tweaker’s Paradise (or Prison - depends on my ears or my friends’ ears). There’s a 30Hz rattle on the right side Speaker, but it’s fine at 40Hz.
Final cost all in : $600
Wood working has never been my Forte’ and Trim hides many many Sins. There are heavy as Hell (don’t have a scale though). I still have foam to install (maybe No Res from GR Research) along the shelves/braces.
Simple first order Butterworth on the Tweeters and a Linkwitz-Riley 2nd order Bandpass on the three midwoofers. It’s a little “chesty” sounding at the moment. 3dB fixed L-Pads on the either the Tweeter or Midwoofer’s made them sound a bit thin.
Phantom Center image is pretty good. Soundstage and front to back Depth is also decent. Crossover’s are 2500Hz, 250Hz. MiniDSP and a pair of ICE Power ASP1000’s from Parts Express help tune the Bass to my room.
Lots of tuning still to do on the Passive High Pass & Bandpass filters.
