Project Description:

The 15” woofers, mids, highs, crossovers are all dayton audio. Everything but the 3/4” MDF was from parts express. I have the hooked to my Yamaha receiver and a parasound (275 wpc amp). I rolled on Exohyde for the paint. I have a grill kit from parts express also that ii have not finished yet. The ports are tuned to 32 Hz and they sound amazing!

Design Goals:

Wanted a big speaker with big woofers, i like my music loud and clear. Ive tried many tower speakers and never was happy with the output.

2 15” Dayton woofers
2 2” Dayton midrange
2 1 1/8” Dayton Tweeters
