Cool New guy from Canada

Hello everyone,I have been reading on Home theater Shack for couple days and I've been really interested in building my own speakers.

I would like to start with my center speaker my 2 surround and 2 surround back. My main speakers and sub are already very good.

If anyone wants to help me starting this project it will be appreciated. My major concern is the crossovers... For my center speaker i would like to go 3-way as WMTMW the woofers would be 6 1/2 in.
the mids 5 in. so thats the one I would like to start with as the enclosure desing will be more simple than the sourrounds one.

WOOFER SPECS:
High compliance rubber suspension
Silver gray ceramic cone
High-temp aluminum voice-coil

6-1/2” woofer
Fr : 40 - 4500 Hz
Power : 50W RMS
Impedance : 8 Ohms
Voice Coil : 1"
Magnet weight : 20 OZ.



MID RANGE SPECS:
Mid-range speaker

Size : 5"
Power : 600 Hz - 10 000 Hz
Power : 40 W
Impedance : 8 Ohms

Rubber suspension
With capacitor 6.8 MFD 50 V


TWEETER SPECS:
Tweeter

Size : 3-3/4"
Power : 40 W RMS
Impedance : 8 Ohms
Voice Coil : 1”
Freq : 3 KHz - 20 KHz


Thank you very much hope to start soon!

Re: New guy from Canada planning to buil own Speakers (no experience at all)

I was thinking also if a 3-way configuration is to complicated for
a first project I have found those that can be a good alternative.
The woofers goes from 58 hz to 6 000 hz.... not bad. This was
I am cancelling the mids but the woofers should do the job... I think.... what you think?

WOOFER SPECS:
Rubber edge Hi-Fidelity loudspeakers, with a butyl suspension
Polymer injection cones
Casting frame, large gold plated speaker terminals

6-1/2" woofer
Power : 45 W RMS
Impedance : 8 Ohms
Freq : 58 - 6K Hz
Voice Coil : 1"
Magnet weight : 20 OZ.
Gold Color
SPL: 90 dB

Re: New guy from Québec Canada

Hi my name is André from Québec Canada my nick on all the forums i participate is MrAcoustat now one guess on the kind of speakers i own yep that's it i have been an audiophile for more than 40 years and a faithfull owner of Acoustat's for more than 25 years my circle of friends are mostly Acoustat's owners not that we don't like cone speakers but we prefer panels and dollar for dollar Acoustat's is a great bargain now only available in China and very expensive you can find an old pair and make them nice you will be surprise at the way they sound and one very important thing they are almost bullet proof very very reliable if it's possible i will ad a few pictures Chow for now.
