I'm thinking about building some speakers over xmas break - partially as a fun little project and partially because i want some kick ass speakers! I've done a bit of research but still have LOTS of questions - I'll start with just one for now... So my main question is what do some of the DIY speakers sound like? The most intriguing kit I've seen is the Adire KT281's. I'm just as concerned about the type of sound these things will make as I am about the quality (if that makes any sense) - i.e. I tend to be relatively sensitive to harsh sounding speakers, especially harsh highs. I've generally liked Polk stuff in the past and am looking to step up from my Cerwin Vega RE25's that I'm using now. Obviously if I'm going to put in all the time and effort, they've got to sound at least as good as what I could buy @ retail. Complicating that fact is that I have some good friends in the audio business than can get me discounts of ~50% on just about any speakers I want - Polk RT800's would be about the same price as the Adire KT281 kit (and that's before adding the cost of wood, etc.) Anyone in NC have some DIY speakers they could let me listen to?
