    I looked at your parts list and it looks good except for the stock crossover. If you are going to build speakers, then you should know that the crossover is the most important part. You can take the most expensive drivers in the world and put a crappy crossover on them and they will sound like crap. Take some in-expensive Dayton drivers and put a custom crossover on them and they will sound great.

    Here are some links to projects that use the same parts that you picked out. Wayne's site has some really good designs. I've built a pair of his DIIs that use the 6.5" woofer and 1 1/8 silk dome tweeter. They sound great. I'm in the process of building some DIIIs now. Also check out db's site. He has a sub designed around the same driver and amp that you picked out. Finally, for more Dayton sub ideas, check out the Dayton subwoofer archive.
