About the Designer:
love building speakers, been doing it for a few years now. it is just a on going evolving thing. plus you learn as you go and get better and better.
I usually don’t outright criticize some anonymous person, but I have to say something about this build.
This is a textbook example of everything NOT to do in a speaker design.
– using an off the shelf crossover is a BIG no no for any sort of good quality sound
– the crossover frequency is far too high for an 8” driver
– way undersized ports for the triple woofers
– extremely far center to center spacing between the woofer and tweeters
– 3 woofers cause amp load problems due to strange combined impedance
I strongly do not recommend anyone copying this build.
These look very similar to my 1996 Klipsch KG 5.5 speakers
awesome project bro!!!!!!!!!!
