Hello All, I have a clarion control deck, clarion cd changer, sony xplod 444 watt 4 channel amp, 10" 4 ohm MTX Pro 500 watt max sub in an ported enclosure w/ a 4" port, and 2 5" 4 ohm MTX Pro speakers. I have some other home speakers that I may use to complete the system. I would like to convert these to use in my home for use in home theater. I am planning on building a new enclosure for the sub and building enclosures for the other 2 speakers to fit in with my home decor. I have already bought a 10 amp power supply to power the cd changer, amp and control deck (works good). I have also already bought 3/4" birchwood to do the enclosures. I had read one sight that suggested this but since then the more I have read has suggested 3/4" MFB. My questions are: Would I need to purchase a receiver to feed the audio to the car amp or should I just feed it directly from the source? When building the sub enclosure, could I use the MFB to build the sub, then use the birchwood for an overlay to give a better look? If so, what widths should i use of both or would 3/4" be fine? If I build the new ecnlosure to match the cubic feet (w/ different dimensions) of the original one and the port too, should I receive the same performance from the sub that the original box gave? Is birchwood alone fine to use for the other two speakers? Thanks for all your help.
