Tips & Tricks:
I used colorplace exterior latex rollered on and sprayed the front baffle with Rustoleum “stone creations” paint. I used poly-fill in the cabinets as well. I used weather stripping on the back side of the Dynalab woofers seeing they had no gasket material.

      Jeff I got the crossovers a couple years back from Amazon and just held onto them. They are audiopipe brand crossovers. At the time they were going for around $30 for the pair. However in the past couple years I started designing and building my own crossovers with parts from Parts Express and I can build a pair with their parts about as inexpensively as the pair I bought a couple years ago. The caveat to all of this is with not having frd and zma data for drivers it’s just a theoretical build i.e. in theory and all things being equal you have a nice set of speakers once finished. But if you’re looking to build a really nice set approaching what I call audiophile quality one would need to buy drivers that had frd and zma data supplied in order to design a set of crossovers tuned for those drivers. Bottom line inexpensive builds like these speakers do a fine job of music reproduction. I hope this helps. Thanks……..
