  • Home Theater speakers

    Hello all,

    Its been awhile since I had the time or means to get back into speaker building. But I moved into a new home and found a great location in the basement for a dedicated theater room. I have asked Paul C to help me with my speaker project and thankfully he agreed. We are going to put together 2 tower speakers, center channel and inwall surrounds. Please see box design below.

              I will just paint the sides and back...... black in color. its just MDF so cant get too fancy and I don't want to take away from the front.

              Thank you for the complement .

            Wow, these look great! I am really wanting to build some nice 3 way towers. I would love to know the approx cost and impedance on these. Will you be releasing the info on the crossovers when you finish them?

              There will be 2- 10's I just did not install it yet. I was just using the one on top for measurements.

            Whip it out!

              If I am looking at the dimensions correctly I would think the 12.5" width on the towers and height on the center shows where the RS270P-8A is going. When I first looked at it I assumed that the towers and the center were using the RS180 and RS100...

                Started working on the inwall surrounds. It was very difficult to get the correct angles for the mids and tweeter, but after a few cuts it worked out. Also clamping these is difficult so I have attached pics. Click image for larger version

                    That is looking well engineered, sir - keep us posted, please.
