    Actually, I was exactly looking for something like that...a higher than Sonos quality table radio that looks nice.
    I'm getting a bit too old to want massive booms and explosions

    Given the Minions 8 ohm impedance, their sensitivity and max power handling, that combo would make a a nice table radio. But it would fall short of the "Boom" in boombox.

    As blackie pointed out, that would have given a horrendous tuning situation. So far off the orig. design that I wouldn't even consider it a Voxel.

    The minion III's do not go below 125 Hz. Bass duty is handled via the subwoofer.

    The port I used for the sub was 268-322.

    Hope that helps...

    If you look at the picture of the back you will see the high level inputs. You just run your speaker wire from the lepai to the back of the plate amp, then run speaker wire from the plate amp to the speakers. Then you adjust the crossover on the back. I just turn the freq control in the back up till it just sounds right. And bodda bing bodda boom your done :D

    I was at my wife's grandparents house last weekend and just to test I took the lepai 2020 and wolf's pc speakers to see if there older flatscreen tv had variable volume output control and it did through 3.5mm hookup for headphones. They were very impressed with the sound and I would like to build them a 2.1 setup and what you have here looks great.

    Thanks!
    I just patch it in from my PC using the 3.5mm stereo jack to the lepai and use the speaker level inputs to go into the plate amp and then output to my Minion III's. Seems to work well for me. Cheap and easy. And I really like the sound of the minions too. For a little full range driver it really delivers.

    Yes I just used the port as is from parts express. It is a hard rocking sub in a small package for sure.
