Hey all for my first set of speakers ever I am planning to do some speakers in the roof of my new patio cover. It is 2x10 rafters so room shouldn't be a problem. I am thinking Dayton RS. Probably the tweet, rs150 then a seperate 12" sub. I am doing this mainly for pracytice on my future HT series of speakers. So any thoughts I will search for a TM build.
Thanks
Mike

That sounds like a good start for those. I like the Dayton RS drivers.

you will need to design and build a crossover as well. You can get started with some Excel tools (FRD Consortium), free but complicated programs (Speaker Workshop), pay-programs (SoundEasy -- available at Parts Express), or ask the people at Parts Express to help you out. They have a team that can model and design a crossover for you to build. I haven't used that service, but I've read good things about it. They will also recommend enclosure volumes, etc.

So basically, you can make it as simple or complicated as you want :)

Good luck and keep us posted!

If you'd like to start with a completed design, you could go that route too. There should be a few in-wall speakers or speakers with little/no BSC. :)
