  • 5.1 audio design



    just a box design i have no expertise in electronics so i will be using pre-assembled crossovers and amplifiers if i ever have the money to build it

    towers-
    top sub is 15'' and has own amp and crossover
    bottom subs are 10''
    speakers are 4''
    the two holes below the 15'' are for 4'' ports which will go in the bend to an interior flare inside the 15'' sub's enclosure

    surrounds-
    speakers are 3''
    other two holes are 3/4'' ports

    center channel-
    speakers are 3''

    thinking about carbon fiber finish :D for a modern look (sketchup doesn't have carbon fiber) and chrome rings around each and every speaker with chrome mounting screws

      if you just make up speakers, you will not be happy.
      wish i had your skils with sketchup.

          I don't think this thread belongs in this forum. The Speaker Project Gallery is for completed projects, not vaporware or random napkin sketches.

          Another reason why we need REAL moderation on this forum.

            while taterworks can be a "tad" abrasive at times, i agree with his post about this page being for completed projects. also, new members with bad attitudes don't get much respect and fade quickly. heed the veterans advice, and soon you'll be building nice speakers that sound good. not ones that get sold from the back of a white van.

              These would look awesome if they ever get built. Although, I can not imagine the decor that these would go to.

                Well, DPR, they only look awesome to a deaf person. The acoustic problems with all 3 designs are too numerous to mention.

                      Mulitudes of drivers does not a good-sounding speaker make. We carried varieties of the multi-driver floorstanders that were prevalent in the 70's and 80's. SQ was crap, but they looked impressive...which was what most uninformed consumers were after. Even with a proper XO (designed for the SPECIFIC driver compliment and placement), there are too many problems using that many different radiating sources. With a pre-made or textbook-formula XO, they would be unlistenable, rendering all that great cabinet work and the cost of the drivers a waste of time & money. If you like the look of multiple drivers, consider a line array...documented and lots of info available on those.

                          i'm guessing thats a satellite speaker on a stand.

                          I can't decide if i should listen to it or roll it on the table for a saving throw. :D


                          seriously, whats your budget? If you're looking to spend enough money on wood, tools to cut in this way, and all those holes filled with drivers, you might want to try buying a speaker kit first and get some more 'electronics expertise.'

                          Thats what I'm doin, anyways...

                            Looks like a combination of a Sansui speaker from the 70's and a Bose 901. The sound would likely make your head explode.
