I have been stockpiling equipment that i have been buying from yard sales and thrift stores just because it is so cheap to do it. I had a through that maybe I should modify some of the speakers that I have and combine them with others. Has anyone else tried this successfully?

Welcome to HTS, and glad you joined! :)
You might want to try posting your question in the DIY Speaker Forum, or the DIY Repair & Maintenance Forum to get better exposure. In general, modifying speakers is not a good idea. Cabinets, drivers, and crossovers are designed to work together. Change one and the other(s) may not perform correctly.

Welcome to Home Theater Shack. We hope that you will become part of the HTS community and enjoy both contributing to help others and find value in what others have posted.

Modifying speakers often ends up with less satisfying results than DIY from scratch. You are stuck with the basics of the existing design so it can be hard to find the right driver and crossover combination to fit.
