    If any of you were to change the little 5" woofer for another one more powerful w/o needing to change anything else what would you choose?

    Thanks for sharing! Nice, clean crossover build. I like the underneath soldering to leave the top looking clean and professional.

    I think I will soon modify mine with some polyfill, as I am almost sure I forgot to add when I first finished mine. Will remove the woofer and add a small amount to see the results.I feel that a bit of polyfill will make them sound a little bass-y-er, bringing them a bit closer to the sound of my Amiga towers. I am using these speakers as rear surrounds anyways so they do not need to be very loud. They do the job very well so far!
    Thanks for your reply Evan, I have a pound of polyfill sitting in my garage so I'll be looking forward for your comments if you ever add it to yours

    I'm sorry for the pictures that are flipped, I don't know why the editor uploads them that way...

    Hi All,

    I just finished building 2 pairs of these babies, I'm fairly new to building speakers but this kit was very easy to build and the instructions provided are easy to follow, I did everything as suggested plus adding the .22uf cap in parallel to the woofer's inductor.

    They are not very loud speakers, which is understandable for their size, but their sound is great as well as the value for the money.

    I just need to decide how I want to finish the enclosures.

    Here are the pics of the build...

    Also is this the correct cap?

    Hey Kered,

    Yes they are too sharp to wrap around with veneer. A trick I will be trying, that another member shared with me in one of my build threads, was to use a router to route the roundovers out (once build is complete), and then veneer the face with no roundovers (and trim), then install walnut quarter rounds where the roundovers were. This will ensure you get the same type of wood on the face. I thought this was a neat idea to conserve the roundover look, as opposed to veneering the whole speaker in wood with the exception of the face, and then either painting the face or wrapping it in vinyl due to roundovers.

    Thanks for the kind words! It's all paint that I finished with several coats of polyurethane. I saw a YouTube video a while back where this older gentleman details how to do this type of finish. I practiced on some scraps before trying it. I did use kilz as a base after 50/50 wood gluing the edges. Maybe not necessary but it looks good enough.

    Here is the video of anyone is interested https://youtu.be/9_RkQhMEw4g

    ^^ Wow, it looks fantastic. Is that real veneer or very good wrap?

    WOW, those look good to me! Nice work!
