  1. DIY Speakers
    I have a pair of vintage Advent 4002's that I love. I actually like them more then any other speaker I have (don't know why). Anyway, I was thinking of making a 6.1 HT setup using a sealed 10" woofer and tweeter setup to get a similar sound. That's when I stumbled across the Eminence...

  8. Home Audio Speakers
    hi everybody, on another forum a discussion has started on 'accuracy vs personal taste'. It came about because I disagreed with someones statement that 'it's how it sounds to you that matters', I only really disagreed to the degree that a statement like that opens the door for scoundrels and...

    I have the 12.3 driver on order and thought I would try my DIY skills on a sub with my old SVS driver. Any ideas where I can find a tool to figure out what size box I can use (looking for a free tool)? Thanks- Greg

    Just thought I'd do a quick post about the general rules of Sub Box Design. 1. length, width and height all need to be different. 2. Angled Baffle - this is normally done on smaller boxes so the driver will fit on one surface. 3. Although it doesn't really matter where you fire the sub from...
