    I'm a big speaker fan. Mine are constructed with four modules, and look more like alien robots than monkey boxes I've heard a lot of small speakers I like, but larger speakers (when done well) just sound better to me. I'm sure it depends on a host of factors like the room etc.

    2-1/2 cu.ft. or so? About 34"h x 14 x 12? ?

    Although I can't fit such a loud speaker in my room, I'm still happy to see it. Keep an eye on the progress

    Wow!…..I’m sure you’re voicing will squeeze the most out of those drivers. Always appreciate your focus on budget with your designs!

    Personally, I think those look great. I have nowhere to put more speakers and yet I really want to build a set (those and the mentioned zingers). I'm getting to old to try to store them in the attic.

    It is indeed

    Scott used the 10 in the Indium7, and it was great too.
    Darren used the 12 x2 in the old MCL.

    As usual, I take as much precaution as I can to make sure the speaker will play well with the widest variety of amps possible. So far I haven't sent any of my amps into protect mode. I suppose when I get close to the end, I can try it on some really sh**y amps and see what happens.
    The SD315-88 is actually a really nice woofer/subwoofer. Good power handling, decent sensitivity, and a really good FR. Ive used it a few times myself and will use it again soon.

    How do these compare to The Tarkus speakers ?

    Wow! The FR on that SB midrange is phenomenal!! I think if I was aiming a bit more upmarket in price that thing would have been a fantastic fit.

    I'm trying to keep this guy in the quasi-budget speaker range--although it's a bit hard finding a decent "budget" 12" woofer. Hence, the woofer I used here is by far the most expensive component.

    This is exactly what I've been wanting to build. Keeping a keen eye on these.
