    The Quarks are exact dimensional copies of the Denovo flat pack, 1/2" particle board. The PAs are 3/4" mat'l. I also squared off the width and depth, looks better to me with the identical drivers/PRs. Same volume.

    You're right. And I'd be fine with that!
    I find flapp-a-lappin cones so entertaining for some reason. It's a wonder I don't have a line array in my house yet.

    Just a random thought, but how cool would a 'Passive Aggressive' L/C/R soundbar be with all those little cones flapping away? 5" high and nice-and-loud!
    Add a sub and a pair of the little cabs for the rear and you'd have a dang cool 5.1 system.

    Tom,

    We hadn't planned that but it should be possible.

    A quick update on these, the enclosures are still on hold. Our vendor is a little backed up but they are due in next week. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Matt,
    Just wondering if PE will be offering a kit without the cabinet on these?
    I really liked these when I heard (and saw) them, but I'd like to build my own cabinet for them.

    Quick update on this kit.

    Enclosures were finalized and should be here any day (coming from a local source) so these should be ready to go VERY soon pending any unseen issues, but I don't see that happening.

    Has anyone else made these? Great little speaker, a real fun project.

    I made little pedestals from the leftovers to get these up to ear level. Turning the bass up on the Nobsound 2.1 amp really gets these woofers woofing. Great project highly recommended.

    LOL!

    ...When you're going to town
    and screwing down
    but all it does is spin around
    Then it's a small design!

    Hah!

    My cordless drill spun the whole unit around when installing the woofer screws 'til I turned the clutch down to 2.

    Ode to a small speaker...

    When the wires pull the speaker off the stand,
    Or when they barely fit the palm of your hand,
    Or internally they don't go as planned,
    Then it's a small design.

    When the bass makes them dance and oscillate,
    and also you hyperventilate,
    and you question the project's thermal state,
    Then it's a small design.

    When nothing else will fit inside,
    then bending rules you past abide',
    But all your logic's justified,
    Then it's a small design.

    If empty cabs weigh less than parts,
    and going outside the box is art,
    Then you'll know right from the start,
    That it's a small design.

    Later,
    Wolf

    Thanks Tom, that board was among the plain maple shrink wrapped stock of 1 bys at Menards. My crossover has the caps stacked on top of the resistors, very tight. Not photogenic. I was wanting to build your Bantams but they seemed really tight with those Peerless PRs.
    The PR actually made it easier than trying to fit a board in there believe it or not. No issue fitting everything by stacking resistors on caps, etc. just like you did with yours. I would think that having two PR's plus a woofer would really take up space in there. Wonder if a 'crossover on a stick' would work for these.

    I'm reminded of Wolf's nearly famous poem about 'Small Speakers' which seems very fitting in this design....
