    hey, which one's are the Jeff B tribute? I'm trying to find them

    Very interesting regarding the s2000 woofer. I live within an hour of the Sumas border crossing (with Washington). Could ship and hold state side maybe
    I ship all my parts to Colville, WA as my folks live on the other side of the border in BC. Saves a bundle!!

    Yes, excellent idea. FYI, DIYsg uses Paypal and ships Fedex.

    Edit: the S2000 carbon fiber woofer is proprietary to DIYsg, no other source.

    Paul Carmody's Speedster design has a ribbon tweeter, is available with or without flat pack, would fit your budget. Interesting speaker. Ooops, Canada, forgot.

    lol, getting the parts wont be an issue regardless. Just a tad more expensive, but all relative, what with free health care and all :P

    I do like those. I think I like the s2000MTM's a tad more tho.

    Check out the posted amplifier links if you have a sec

    I like the idea of being able to swap out components/caps by going with a kit/cheaper amp.

    Yea, full woodshop and metal shop (pay monthly to access it). I have designed and built a few sealed and vented subwoofer enclosures before.

    I imagine any of your choices could play at 93 dB without much issue, but for the sake of completeness, what sort of amplifier and other gear do you intend to use with the system? You say you have a subwoofer that may or may not be used, what model is it?

    Seven feet might be a little close to listen to the statements given the open back mids. I'm sure someone who is more familiar with them could weigh in.
    so, subwoofer is a Cambridge SoundWorks Basscube12S which keeps blowing caps (I'll get the O-scope out sometime soon :P).
    The amp is a Onkyo TX-SR503. Looks like its only 75 W/ch @ min 8 ohm, so I may just use it as the preamp.

    You might want to consider an amp kit from PE. They have plenty and you get their guarantee and tech support. Nothing against AliExpress, but I know PE stands behind their products and offers great tech support.

    No, haven't looked. If it's chipamps they are good for 4 ohms generally.

    I am using S2000 TMs and one MTM for my downsized HT. You can buy the flat pack or make your own enclosure. All DIYsg kits come with a cnc'd baffle, which is very convenient. Excellent service. In your setup, these would need stands.
    I just read the thread about them. Very impressive.
